EC to decide on Gazipur polls after getting HC certified copy

DHAKA – The Election Commission will decide over filing of appeal against High Court order staying the Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) election after getting certified copy in this regard, reports BSS.

Election Commissioner Kabita Khanam said this while replying to a question of newsmen at Nirbachan Bhaban at Agargaon here.

She said the EC has stopped all electoral activities following the court order.

The High Court (HC) on Sunday stayed for six months the polls to Gazipur City Corporation (GCC), issuing a rule on the authorities concerned to explain as to why inclusion of six mouzas (areas) of Savar in GCC shall not be declared illegal.

Shimulia Union Parishad Chairman Azharul Islam Suruj filed the writ as a gazette notification was issued on March 4, including six mouzas – Dakkhin Borobari, Domna, Shibrampur, Pashchim Panishail, Panishail and Domnag – of his union in Gazipur City Corporation.

The Gazipur city election was scheduled to be held on May 15 where more than 11 lakh voters were supposed to cast their ballots.
