The Satkania municipal election was held peacefully. Voters have been queuing up in a festive atmosphere since Sunday (February 14th) morning to cast their votes for the candidate of their choice.
Earlier, BNP candidate Advocate AZM Moinul Haque Chowdhury Khokon withdrew his candidature and withdrew from the election. Awami League candidate Mohammad Jobay was elected unopposed as mayor.

Competing candidates also expressed satisfaction with the voting environment during the voting.
