The government's move to hold local government polls on partisan lines will increase nomination business in local elections, says former election commissioner Brig Gen (retd) M Sakhawat Hussain.
Every month, a union parishad chairman gets only Tk 1,575 as honorarium from the government. He gets another Tk 2,000 from his UP. During his five-year-tenure, he would receive around Tk 2.14 lakh.
He does not get any other pay and perks.
