Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday elected virtually unopposed from the Gopalganj-3 constituency as she won by a landslide, bagging 229,539 votes while her main BNP opponent could manage just 123.

The Election Commission officially announced Hasina's win in the evening.

Hasina is aiming for a record fourth term as prime minister with her Awami League opening up a big lead in early results following a tense vote.

She did not face much competition from her rivals as Bangladesh Nationalist Party's S M Jilani secured only 123 votes, Islami Andolan Bangladesh candidate Maruf Sheikh got 71, while rest of the candidates received a mere 14 votes.

According to the EC, a total of 229,747 votes were cast.
