Electioneering of Gazipur City Corporation polls resumes today (Monday).
The Awami League and BNP-backed mayoral aspirants will begin their official campaign from today.
Earlier, AL-backed candidate Jahangir Alam collected his symbol ‘boat’ and BNP-backed Hasan Uddin Sarker collected his symbol ‘paddy stack’ from the regional election commissioner Rakibuddin Mandol.
The Election Commission (EC) revised the schedule for Gazipur polls and set June 26 for voting, which was postponed earlier following a writ petition.
As per an earlier schedule announced by the EC on March 31, the GCC election was scheduled to be held on May 15. But a sudden three-month stay on the polls by a High Court bench, in response to a writ petition, forced the commission to postpone the election.
