Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh on fire on the day of legislative elections – Corriere TV

The vote will reconfirm Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for the fourth consecutive time. The opposition has announced its intention to boycott the elections

A large fire broke out in Rohingya refugee camp number 5 in Bangladesh on January 7, just after midnight. The out-of-control flames expanded and ended up touching camp number 3 as well.
Fear for the thousands of refugees present precisely at night when humanitarian NGOs and security personnel are not present.

On January 7, Bangladesh is the first country called to vote in 2024. The legislative elections were boycotted by the opposition due to the lack of transparency and fairness conditions, which will see the reconfirmation of the outgoing Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for a fourth term. Around 120 million Bangladeshis are expected to vote to elect the deputies who will subsequently choose the prime minister, but the outcome of the vote appears to be a foregone conclusion. Hasina has been credited with reviving a $416 billion economy and its massive garment industry, as well as international praise for sheltering nearly a million Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution in neighboring Myanmar.
