DCC polls next year
Tuesday, 23 September 2008


Election to Dhaka city will not be held this year, an election commissioner said Sunday.

"It will not be possible to hold the election this year," commissioner Sakhawat Hossain told reporters, ending all speculation about the city election.
The commissioner said the schedule for the national polls, slated for Dec 18, and the two-phased Upazila elections planned for Dec 24 and 28 would be announced in the first week of November.
"The DCC polls will follow the national and Upazila elections."
The term for the incumbent Dhaka mayor and commissioners ended in May 2007.
Meanwhile, chief election commissioner A T M Shamsul Huda said Sunday that the EC decisions on electoral rules and outcome of dialogues with political parties would be made public on Monday
