Mymensingh, the 12th city corporation of the country, has 296,938 voters

Voters are exercising their franchise in the maiden election of Mymensingh City Corporation (MCC) on Sunday.

The voting began at 8am and will continue until 4pm without any break.

However, only councillors will be elected through this voting because the lone mayoral candidate has already been elected unopposed, reports the UNB.

There are 33 general councillor posts and 11 seats reserved for women. Mymensingh, the 12th city corporation of the country, has 296,938 voters under 33 wards.

Electronic Voting Machines will be used in all 127 polling stations.

Awami League mayoral candidate Ekramul Haque Titu was elected uncontested. He was the only candidate left after Jatiya Party contestant Jahangir Ahmed withdrew from the mayoral race.

Meanwhile, voting is going on in four upazila parishads, where polls were earlier postponed.
