Awami League-backed mayor candidate AJM Nasir Uddin says he is sure to win the Chittagong City Corporation poll after casting his vote.
At around 9am, he told reporters after voting: “ I am more hopeful about winning now.
“Whatever the result is, I will accept that, since two parties cannot win at the same time. I hope the election will be fair.”
Addressing himself as a player he said, “I’m not to be blamed if my opponents play bad in the field.”
Nasir casted his vote at booth no. 5 of the Chittagong Municipal Model School and College polling centre.
Out of six booths in the centre, three of them had no polling agent for BNP-backed candidate M Manjur Alam.
In Chittagong, 12 candidates are contesting for the mayor’s office while 217 are battling it out for general councillor posts in 41 wards and 62 for 14 wards reserved for women councillors.
A total of 1,813,449 in Chittagong are expected to vote on Tuesday to elect mayors and councillors.
