Can Bangladesh’s opposition unseat the prime minister? | Inside Story

Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been in and out of power for decades.
But tens of thousands of opposition supporters have joined protests in the capital Dhaka, demanding her resignation.
They’re calling for a caretaker administration.
They accuse the governing Awami League party of intimidation and vote rigging in previous elections.
Hasina’s long-time rival is former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia.
