Awami League President Sheikh Hasina first laid a wreath at the portrait of Father of the Nation in front of the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi 32 in Dhaka.

Sheikh Hasina was elected President of Bangladesh Awami League – the country’s oldest political party – for the 10th consecutive term, while Obaidul Qader was re-elected as general secretary for the third time in the 22nd National Council held on December 24.
