List of political parties in Bangladesh

Mostly Bangladesh is a two-party system, which means that there are two dominant political parties, with extreme difficulty for anybody to achieve electoral success under the banner of any other party.

Center-left Awami League (AL) and center-right Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) dominated Bangladesh politics for a long time. Currently both are heading coalitions of similar-minded parties with the AL leading the secular and liberal elements while BNP is rallying the right-of-centre parties.
