Elections in the 2010sEdit

Shawkat Momen Shahjahan died in January 2014, barely two weeks after the general election. Anupam Shahjahan Joy, his son, was elected in a by-election conducted in March and April. He defeated independent candidates Md. Malek Mian, Abu Sayed Azad, and Liakat Ali, and Jatiya Party (Ershad) candidate Sadek Siddiqui.[9][10]

Shawkat Momen Shahjahan was re-elected unopposed in the 2014 general election after opposition parties withdrew their candidacies in a boycott of the election.[11]
