Election schedule of the capital's two city corporations, Dhaka North and Dhaka South is going to be announced today, Election Commission (EC) sources informed.

EC sources said the EC Secretariat convened a meeting on Sunday to determine the schedule. It has been placed first in the content of the discussion – ‘Schedule for Dhaka North and South City Corporation Elections’.

Farhad Ahmed Khan, joint-secretary of EC's election management branch, said polling dates will be set at the commission meeting. The schedule can be announced on that day.

On April 28, 2015, Dhaka's two city corporations election were held, where  Awami League candidate Anisul Haque was elected to the Dhaka North City Corporation and Sayeed Khokon to the south.

Due to the death of Mayor Anisul Haque on November 30, 2017, the post of mayor was vacated. Later, Awami League candidate Atiqul Islam became the mayor in the North City by-election on February 28, 2018.
