The Awami League selected Ekramul Hoque Titu as the mayoral candidate of the first ever elections to Mymensingh City Corporation.
The ruling party announced the decision in a meeting of its local government nomination board chaired by Sheikh Hasina at the Ganabhaban in Dhaka on Friday.
The party started selling the nomination forms last Tuesday for the elections slated for May 5.
Titu is a vice-president of the party’s Mymensingh Metropolitan unit. He was also elected mayor in the last polls to the local government body when it was a municipality.
