HC stays DNCC mayoral by-polls for 3 months
The High Court has stayed the upcoming by-polls for the mayoral post of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) for three months. A High Court bench of Justice Naima Haydar and Justice Zafar Ahmed passed the order on Wednesday morning. Earlier on Tuesday, Upazila Chairman of Bhatara Ataur Rahman filed a writ petition with the High Court seeking stay on the upcoming by-polls. Five people, including secretary of Local Government, Rural Development and Co-operatives (LGRD) Ministry, secretary of Election Commission (EC) were made respondents to the writ petition. The by-polls for the mayoral post of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) were scheduled to be held on February 26. The Election Commission fixed January 18 as the last date for filing nomination paper while scrutiny will be held on January 21 and 22. The closing date for nomination paper withdrawal is January 29. Besides, the Election Commission will arrange polls to the 36 councillor posts and 12 reserved seats in the 36 new wards – 18 of the DNCC and 18 of the Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) – on the same day. The DNCC mayoral post fell vacant with the death of Annisul Huq on November 30, 2017. This article was first published on banglatribune.com
