On 2017, a two-member HC bench stayed the mayoral by-election to the DNCC for six months

The High Court has cleared the way to hold the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) by-election.

A bench comprising of Justice Gobinda Chandra Tagore and Justice Mohammad Ullah, on Wednesday, withdrew its previous order that stayed the process of holding the by-polls, reports UNB.

The court also rejected three separate petitions filed related to the election, said Kazi Mynul Hasan, a counsel of the Local Government and Rural Development (LGRD).

The High Court withdrew the stay order and rejected three petitions as no lawyer for the petitioner was present during the hearing, said the counsel.

Now the Election Commission will think about the election schedule, he added.

On January 14 last year, a two-member HC bench of Justice Naima Haydar and Justice Zafar stayed, for six months, the mayoral by-election to the DNCC following two separate writ petitions filed with HC seeking a stay on the election.

As per the schedule declared by the Election Commission, the by-polls for the DNCC mayoral post were supposed to be held on February 26, 2018.

The DNCC mayoral post fell vacant with the death of Annisul Huq on November 30, 2017.
