Voters in Bangladesh are getting ready for general elections on Sunday.

It’s a poll that’s dividing much of the country.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is expected to win another term, against virtually no competition.

The main opposition is boycotting, objecting to what it says are intimidation, fraud and widespread arrests ordered by the government.

Frustration has been building for months, with protesters demanding the prime minister step aside and for a neutral administration to oversee the vote.

So, how will this election shape Bangladesh’s future?

Presenter: Hashem Ahelbarra

Guests:

Muktadir Rashid – an investigative journalist and reporter with the Bangladeshi daily newspaper, New Age
