Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been ranked 26th in Forbe’s list of the world’s 100 most powerful women. 

The US-based magazine published the list on Tuesday. 

Last year, her position was 30th. 

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who recently announced that she will not seek a fifth term, retained the top list for the eighth consecutive year. 

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has become second and International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde third. 

Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors is on the fourth position, Fidelity Investments CEO Abigail Johnson fifth, US Philanthropist Melinda Gates sixth, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki seventh, Banco Santander Chair and Executive Director Ana Patricia Botín eighth, Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson ninth and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty is on the 10th  position on the list.

Queen Elizabeth II was ranked 23rd and US President Donalad Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump 24th.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who is seeking a fourth time in power in the December 30 election, was ranked sixth among 20 women in politics category.  

In Hasina’s profile, the magazine says she provided aid to Rohingya Muslim refugees fleeing Myanmar and allotting 2,000 acres of land in Bangladesh for the refugees.

Now she is working on the safe repatriation of the Rohingyas to Myanmar, saying that Bangladesh can't bear the burden of permanent shelter.
