Since the independence of Bangladesh in 1971 we have experienced almost every system of governance, socialism, capitalism, presidential democracy, parliamentary democracy, martial law and last of all non-military martial law. All the above systems started with hope and positive commitments and were welcomed by all. But, unfortunately, all failed to fulfill commitments and somehow unexpectedly got involved in perpetuating self rule, providing undue advantages to the party adherents/family members or misusing state power. The military played an important role during almost every change, but failed to keep away from all controversies at the end.

Bangladesh held nine parliamentary elections and hardly any one of them was without controversy. The party having failed to get peoples mandate always blamed the administration for their failure. This is because there is scope for manipulation in our polling system.
