For the first time in Bangladesh's contemporary history, the electoral campaign has not offered the historic competition between the two women symbol of national politics (Khaleda Zia and Sheikh Hasina). Today the coalition led by the Awami League party won the elections with a plebiscite majority (288 seats out of 300). However, during the elections, there were strong protests and attacks that led the opposition not to accept the election result; therefore some scholars defined Bangladesh as an "unstable constitutionalism"
