The fate of two general councillors of wards 24 and 27 will be also be decided through the fresh voting in the two centres at Gazi Burhanuddin Garam Dewan Government Primary School and Hobinandi Government Primary School.

On August 1, the Election Commission set the date for reelection. There are 2,221 voters at Gazi Burhanuddin Garam Dewan Government Primary School centre while 2,566 at Hobinandi Government Primary School one. BNP mayoral candidate Ariful Haque Chowdhury has taken a lead of 4,626 votes in 132 centres out of 134. Ariful bagged 90,496 votes while Awami League’s BadarUddin Ahmed Kamran polled 85,870.

The BNP candidate now needs only 81 votes in the reelection to the postponed centres having a total of 4,787 voters. The announcement of the results was postponed as the number of votes in the two centres is higher than the difference between the two leading candidates’ tallies.
