Chattogram City Corporation (CCC) elections will be held on January 26, Election Commission (EC) Senior Secretary Alamgir said at a press conference on Monday.

The EC secretary said voting will be held through EVMs from 8 am to 4 pm. Candidates other than the mayoral candidate have no chance of being re-nominated.

He said that in the wards where the contesting candidate has died, new candidates will be able to submit nomination papers. Nomination papers can be submitted by December 30 in reserved ward-6, general wards 30, 37 and 40 while the last date of withdrawal of candidature is January 8.

The Chattogram City Corporation election was postponed due to the Corona epidemic. Therefore, since the candidates were finalized at the end of all the processes of nomination submission, selection, and withdrawal as per the previously announced schedule, only those candidates will take part in this election.

Chattogram City Corporation polls are scheduled to be held on March 29 this year. But the voting was postponed a week before the scheduled date due to coronavirus pandemic.
