Two by-elections will be held in Bogura-1 and Jashore-6 constituencies today amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Polling will start at 9:00 am and continue until 5:00 pm without any break.

At an emergency meeting on July 4, the Election Commission (EC) decided to hold the by-elections and issued a circular signed by EC Senior Secretary Md Alamgir.

Earlier on March 21, the EC postponed the by-polls due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They were scheduled for March 29.
