Observing Municipal Elections in Bangladesh

On April 28, 2015 Bangladesh held municipal elections for mayors and ward councilors in Dhaka North, Dhaka South, and Chittagong. The city corporation elections, as they are called, were important for many reasons. They were the first municipal elections held in Dhaka City since 2002, and the most significant elections since the controversial national elections held in January 2014, which were boycotted by all major opposition parties over concern that the ruling Awami League was rigging the process. Here are photographs from Election Day in Chittagong.
