DNCC Bhaban

PV Desk : The Election Commission is moving to hold by-polls to elect a new mayor for the Dhaka North City Corporation as the post fell vacant with the death of Annisul Huq.
Huq, who was elected the first mayor of Dhaka North in 2015, was declared dead on Thursday by doctors at a London hospital, where he was being treated for almost four months.
The 65-year-old had served a little over half of his five-year term before he passed away after being diagnosed with cerebral vasculitis— inflammation of the blood vessel wall involving the brain.
