Bangladesh: Prime Minister Denies Election Fraud Allegations
BangladeshBangladesh's Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina shrugged off accusations that last Sunday's elections were illegitimate. This in spite of a boycott of the voting by 18 opposition parties, including the large Bangladesh Nationalist Party. Japan's national broadcaster, NHK, reports from Dhaka.

Sheikh Hasina, Prime Minister of Bangladesh:
It doesn't mean that there will be a question of legitimacy or anything more. People participated in the poll, and other political parties, they participated. And election, well definitely it is our constitutional obligation to hold elections.

Reporter:
In the election, more than half of the parliamentary seats up for grabs were uncontested after the largest opposition party and 17 other groups refused to take part. The ruling Awami League is expected to win more than two-thirds of the seats. Clashes between opposition supporters and security forces have left many people dead or wounded. The prime minister labeled the protests terrorist activities. Hasina said that if opposition leaders want to hold discussions with the government, the have to stop terrorist activities.
