Ruling Awami League has nominated Ekramul Haque Titu as its mayoral candidate for the first Mymensingh City Corporation election.

The decision came after a meeting of the Awami League central working committee at Ganabhaban on Friday.

Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina chaired the meeting.

The Election Commission has announced that the new MCC will hold its first election on May 5.

According to the schedule announced by the election officials, candidates will have until Monday to submit their forms, the nominees will be scrutinized on Wednesday and candidates will have until April 17 to withdraw.

Electronic voting machines (EVMs) will be used at all 130 polling centres in the city corporation.

Ekramul was the mayor of the now defunct Mymensingh municipality.

He also served as the administrator of the newly formed city corporation.

According to the Local Government (City Corporation) Act, an administrator’s term can last for a maximum of 180 days. The city has to elect a new public representative before the administrator’s term ends.

The boundaries of the MCC, composed of 33 general wards and 11 reserve wards, were set out in a gazette on January 28.

The government updated Mymensingh to Bangladesh’s 12th city corporation on October 15 last year.

The National Implementation Committee for Administrative Reorganization-Reform (Nicar) approved the formation of the city corporation on April 2 last year.

Nicar had previously formed the Mymensingh Division, the eighth in the country, on September 14, 2015. The division includes Mymensingh, Jamalpur, Sherpur and Netrokona districts.

The Mymensingh City Corporation was announced within three years. The other city corporations include Dhaka north, Dhaka south, Chittagong, Rajshahi, Khulna, Barisal, Comilla, Narayanganj, Rangpur, and Gazipur.
