The by-election to Chattogram-8 constituency that fell vacant following the death of Moin Uddin Khan Badal will be held on January 13 next.

The Election Commission on Sunday declared the by-polls schedule for the constituency.

As per the schedule, the deadline for the submission of nomination paper is December 12, while the date for scrutinising the nomination papers is December 15 and the last date for the withdrawal of candidacy is December 22.

In the election, the ballots will be cast through electronic voting machines (EVMs) from 9am to 5pm without any break.
