ElectionsEdit

Elections in the 2010sEdit

In late 2014, Abdul Latif Siddiqui was expelled from the Awami League for criticizing the practice of hajj, which he described as a drain on the economy.[8][9] He resigned from parliament on 1 September 2015. The resulting by-election was delayed by legal wrangling over whether his brother, Abdul Kader Siddique, could be a candidate. The by-election eventually took place in January 2017, and was won by Awami League candidate Hasan Imam Khan.[10]
