Election Commissioner Md Abu Hafiz said that the voter turnout was satisfactory, though he could not come up with statistics.

Voting in the first municipal polls on party lines in Bangladesh started at 8am in 234 municipalities.


By 2pm, voting in 14 polling centres had to be suspended due to clashes and vote fraud.

Reports of clashes had been reported from at least 20 municipalities across the country by 1:30pm.

In Chittagong’s Satkaniya municipality, a man was shot dead during a clash between supporters of two councillor aspirants.

Crude bombs were lobbed, allegedly by Awami League supporters, at a polling centre in Narsinghdi's Madhabdi after voting was stopped there following reports of vote fraud.


But leaving aside these incidents, elections in most areas were held ‘peacefully’, claimed Election Commissioner Hafiz.

He said that their prime objective was to manage the law and order situation.

“We took prompt action every time we received a complaint. By 1:30pm, voting was suspended at 14 centres. Our aim is to keep the atmosphere smooth for the voters.”
