The 71 year old Sheikh Hasina, the daughter of Bangladesh's founder Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, has become victorious in the 11th parliamentary elections with a landslide victory. She was the chief of the Awami League.

She was born on September 28, 1947 at her parental home of Tungipara in northern Bangladesh (then East Pakistan). She is the eldest among the five children of Rahman, the first president of Bangladesh. She married nuclear scientist M A Wazed Miah in 1968. Her husband died in 2009. They have one son, Sajeeb Wazed Joy, and one daughter, Saima Wazed Hossain Putul.

While living in self-exile with her husband in India, Hasina was elected the president of the Awami League in 1981, and since then she has been the president of the party. Ending six years in exile, she returned home on May 17, 1981. In 1983, Hasina formed an alliance to oust military dictator Hussain Muhammad Ershad.
