The upazila parishad election in Lalmonirhat’s Aditmari upazila was held peacefully today.
No untoward incident was reported since the beginning of the upazila election, reports our local correspondent.
A total of 1,63,612 voters in the upazila exercised their franchise during the election that started around 8:00am and ended around 4:00pm.
Fifteen candidates -- three for chairman, six for vice chairman and six for women vice chairmen are contesting in the polls.
The Election Commission (EC) earlier on March 8 suspended the polls for Aditmari upazila parishad scheduled for March 10, following violation of election rules by the assistant private secretary (APS) to Social Welfare Minister Nuruzzaman Ahmed.
