 Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been sworn in for her third straight five-year term.

 
Hasina took the oath of office on Monday about a week after her ruling Bangladesh Awami League party won a landslide victory in the national election.
 
President Abdul Hamid also swore in 24 cabinet ministers, 19 ministers of state and three deputy ministers at a ceremony at the presidential residence in Dhaka.
 
Hasina's Awami League now forms its third straight five-year term government in a row since January 2009 after ruling the country in 1996-2001.
 
Joint General Secretary of Bangladesh Awami League Jahangir Kabir Nanak said the election was held in free, fair and peaceful manner with the participation of all parties.
