And people vote for the party Awami League, not only for Sheikh Hasina. They have some loyal hardcore followers who will still vote for AL. Even after she is gone her son will dominate the elections with no rivals
yup. can't disagree. the whole rajakar tribunal and BNP failing to distance themselves was a fatal blow. its ironic though how there are some rajakars in the current coalition and within Hasina's extended family (her daughter's in law family).

going back on topic, I don't think Mash has an opening. There is no room for 3rd party. And if he joins AL, his clean image will be ruined. He will lose the mass appeal that he has now. There is still a big contingent on ex-BNP or strong AL critics who will never back him.
