DNCC mayor post declared vacant
The post of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) mayor was declared vacant on Sunday, four days after its first incumbent, Annisul Huq, passed away. Engineer Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, the local government, rural development and cooperatives minister, told journalists at the Secretariat yesterday that the gazette notification regarding the vacant post would be issued for December 3. “The process of issuing notification in this regard is underway,” the minister said. “The Election Commission will hold the by-poll for the post within 90 days, as per the law.” Mosharraf paid tribute to the late mayor’s successes.

The DNCC will implement the initiatives undertaken by him,” he said. The local government minister added that his ministry will come forward to this end, if the city corporation faced any barrier in this regard.
