The issue of electoral integrity is at the heart of Bangladesh’s political discourse, with controversy often plaguing elections at all levels. The emerging subject of electoral governance as something to be studied and understood on its own merit, and the case of Bangladesh is of particular interest for students of governance studies everywhere. (Retd.) Brigadier General Dr. Muhammad Sakhawat Hussain’s work is aimed at interpreting his personal experience of having served as election commissioner for five years with the veracity of his analysis.

This book lays out the concept of electoral governance first, before delving into the historical elections in Bangladesh, including the very first election of 1973, along with necessary comparisons with electoral situations in neighbouring countries in South Asia. Along the way, it is made clear how critical proper electoral governance is to the functioning of a democracy, and ultimately some direction is provided for how headway might be made in ensuring that Bangladesh achieves a greater degree of prudent and capable governance.

To anyone interested in the complex topic of electoral management and its intersection with political realities, a history of Bangladesh’s electoral achievements and a breakdown of what proper electoral governance would look like for Bangladesh, this book will be of great interest.
