Polls and people in Bangladesh

Almost seven million women are registering to vote for the first time in the 2013 elections.

    Bangladesh has had a year of political turmoil and people say they have lost faith in their leaders.

    Elections are expected to be held by the end of next year, but it has already been a source of public debate and unrest.
