The Grand Alliance (Bengali: মহাজোট) is a coalition government in Bangladesh that formed in 2008 and consisted of the Bangladesh Awami League, Jatiya Party, Jatiyo Samajtantrik Dal, Workers Party, Liberal Democratic Party and nine other parties. The Grand Alliance won the 2008 Parliamentary election and formed the government in 2009.[1]

Liberal Democratic Party came out of the Grand Alliance before the election and contested independently. The LDP joined the 18 Party Alliance in 2012.
