Twenty years of Politics in Bangladesh

It all began in that euphoric moment when the political classes, symbolized chiefly by the Awami League and the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, came together to guide Bangladesh back to parliamentary government in mid-1991. The move ought to have led to more substantive ones, especially in terms of making the Jatiyo Sangsad truly effective as a body. As time went on, however, it began to be made clear that the presidential form had in more ways than one been supplanted by a prime ministerial system. The political unity that had been forged between the political parties in the course of the struggle against the Ershad regime soon began to come apart.
