Staff Reporter :
The election of Gazipur City Corporation will be held on June 26.
Secretary of Election Commission (EC) Helaluddin Ahmed made the announcement of the election at a news conference at its office on Sunday.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the EC chaired by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda in the afternoon, he said.
"The election will be held on June 26 while the official election campaign will start on June 18," he said.
The Appellate Division on May 10 directed the Election Commission to hold the Gazipur City's mayoral polls by June 28.
A four-judge bench chaired by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order after hearing three separate appeal petitions filed by the Election Commission and two mayoral candidates-Hasan Uddin Sarkar of BNP and Zahangir Alam of Awami League.
On May 6, the High Court stayed the Gazipur City Corporation election which was scheduled to be held on May 15.
It also issued a rule asking the government to explain as to why the inclusion of six moujas of Dhaka district into GCC should not be declared illegal.
The government on January 16, 2013 published a gazette incorporating six moujas of Shimulia union of Savar upazila (South Boroibari, Domna, Shibrampur, West Panishail, South Panishail and Domnag) under Gazipur City Corporation but according to law, the GCC was formed with Gazipur and Tongi municipalities.
ABM Azharul Islam Suruj, Shimulia union parishad chairman of Savar, filed the writ on May 6 morning challenging the legality of the gazette as the Election Commission announced the election schedule incorporating six moujas of Dhaka district, which is illegal.
Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda announced the election schedule for Gazipur and Khulna city corporations on March 31.
