HC halts DNCC by-polls for three months

pk Report : The High Court has stayed the by-election to Dhaka North City Corporation(DNCC) scheduled for February 26.

Moved by two separate writ petitions, the bench of Justice Naima Haider and Justice Zafar Ahmed stayed the by-polls for three months.

They also issued a rule seeking explanation why the by-election process should not be declared illegal.

Beraid union parishad chairman Jahangir Alom and Bhatara union parishad chairman Ataur Rahman filed the two petitions, challenging the legality of the schedule of the polls to the posts of the mayor and the councillors of 18 new wards under DNCC.

The mayoral post of the DNCC remained vacant since the demise of Annisul Huq on November 30, 2017.

Annisul had been elected the DNCC mayor contesting the DNCC election held on April 28, 2015 with Awami League ticket.
