The newly-elected mayors and councillors to Dhaka's bifurcated city corporations are set to take their oaths of office on Thursday.
The swearing-in ceremony will take place at the Prime Minister's Office at 10:30am, Secretary to the Local Government Division Helal Uddin Ahmed confirmed, reports bdnews24.com.
"The prime minister will administer the oaths to the mayors at the Shapla Hall. The newly-elected councillors to general wards and reserved women's seats will also be sworn in," he said.
The polls to the Dhaka city corporations were held on Feb 1. Awami League-backed candidates Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh and Atiqul Islam were elected mayors of Dhaka South and Dhaka North respectively.
Nevertheless, the two mayors-elect will have to wait until mid-May to assume their offices.
