Bangladesh’s opposition has condemned what it has called a (FAR-SEE-KAL) “farcical” election and demanded a new vote.

PM Sheikh Hasina is heading for a fourth term with a huge majority that continues to grow as results come in.

But there have been claims of vote-rigging, and a BBC correspondent saw filled ballot boxes at a polling centre before polls opened.

Opposition leader Kamal Hos-sain urges the election commission to void this farcical result immediately.

He is demanding that a fresh election is held under a neutral government as early as possible.
