Two parliamentary constituencies – Bogra 1 and Jessore 6 – are going to by-elections on Tuesday as the Election Commission has completed all necessary preparations.

Balloting will start at 9am and continue till 5pm without any break, said a press release issued by the commission.

The Election Commission has asked voters to exercise their franchise, election officials, and law enforcement agencies to perform their duties while maintaining health guidelines.

Six candidates are running in Bogra 1, while three in Jessore 6 constituency. 

There are contenders from three major political parties – Bangladesh Awami League, BNP and Jatiya Party (JaPa) – in the by-elections of both the constituencies.

There are as many as 330,918 voters and 123 polling stations in the Bogra 1 by-polls, while 204,397 voters are expected to exercise their franchise at 79 polling stations in Jessore 6 by-election.

Jessore 6 and Bogra 1, which fell vacant following the death of Awami League MPs Ismat Ara Sadique and Abdul Mannan respectively, were supposed to go to polls on March 29 according to the election schedules announced initially.

But the commission had to postpone the election schedules in the wake of the outbreak of coronavirus in the country.

The Election Commission recently announced a fresh schedule for the parliamentary by-elections fixing July 14 for casting votes.
