  List of political parties in Bangladesh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bangladesh has 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 another party.
However, though the center-left pervy League and center-right BNP dominated Bangladesh politics for a long time, currently both are heading coalitions of like minded parties with the AL leading the secular and liberal elements while BNP is rallying the Islamist fundamentalist parties.

 Political Violence
Political parties should hold their own cadres accountable for acts of political violence and take concrete steps to end such acts by immediately and permanently disarming their student and youth wings and bring to justice members known to have participated in acts of murder, assault, arson, intimidation, destruction of property and other crimes.
Political parties should desist from engaging in violent acts of political protest that contravene the Declaration of Minimum Humanitarian Standards, endorsed by the U.N. Subcommission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities in October 1994, and Bangladesh law.
Unless all the political parties commit themselves to holding their supporters and organized cadres accountable for acts of violence and intimidation in the run-up to and after the elections, the potential for renewed politically motivated violence remains strong.

A political party intending to register itself with the EC shall submit an application signed by its president or secretary or persons holding equivalent status in the party to the secretary to the EC.
The application shall be accompanied by a copy of the constitution of the party, which shall contain a specific provision to the effect that the party shall bear true faith and allegiance to the constitution of Bangladesh and it shall uphold the sovereignty, unity and integrity of Bangladesh.
To conclude, unless and until the registration of political parties with the EC is made mandatory, the list of political parties may continue to swell which, according to many, may not be conducive to the successful functioning of parliamentary democracy in the country.

At this stage, the major political parties are entangled in such a tussle, which even they themselves do not afford to do, let alone the cost that the nation has to pay for the party leaders' petty personal ego-centric duel.
Perhaps, the parties in Bangladesh do not know their role as parliamentary opposition parties since they eye only on power and put their all efforts either to go to power or to cling to it.
The parties are facing them as belligerents and it is difficult to say where the nation is heading for under their leadership lacking a clear sense of direction for the future.

 Bangladesh: New base of terror?
It seems that Bangladesh like Pakistan, (which under similar United States pressures refuses to export natural gas to India) is vulnerable to political pressures, especially from Islamic fundamentalists parties to refrain from economic interactions with India, despite the sizeable financial losses to their respective national exchequers.
Bangladesh today also seems to be getting overtaken by Islamic fundamentalist parties, which do not portend well for the future of good relations with India.

 Enhancing accountability of the political parties
Given the present day stand of the political parties of Bangladesh on terrorism, it appears inter alia: the parties, as appropriate, are planning to make terrorism an election issue; and the war on terror in Bangladesh suffers from, for example, inadequate collective, as well as coordinated strategies and efforts at the local and national levels.
Further, it appears some of the parties have taken the matter concerning terrorism to the street without considering and harnessing, in a proper manner, the existing and potential opportunities for strengthening Bangladesh's effort towards identifying and prosecuting the accused party-ies and person-s in a more result-oriented manner.
