Khulna and Gazipur city corporation elections on May 15
The Khulna and Gazipur city corporation elections have been scheduled to be held on May 15
The elections for the two city corporations were scheduled to be held after the HSC exams, but before the start of Ramadan.
Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda made the announcement at the end of an Election Commission (EC) meeting on Saturday and laid out the schedule for the polls.
According to the schedule, candidates for the position of mayor, general and reserved councillors must submit their nomination applications to the election’s returning officer by Apr 12. The submissions will be scrutinised on Apr 14 and 15, with Apr 23 set as the deadline to withdraw from the race.
After the government had given the EC the green light to hold polls in five city corporations ahead of the general election, the Gazipur and Khulna city election schedules were announced.
