Bangladesh's newly-elected lawmakers will be sworn in Thursday, a media report said. The announcement came after a gazette was published Wednesday notifying the members of parliament-elect in the Jan 5 elections to the 10th parliament, the Daily Star reported. Mired in controversy, the elections were held in just 147 out of 300 seats in 59 out of 64 districts in the country. The Awami League led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has won a clear three-fourths majority in parliament.
