CHITTAGONG: Jubilant supporters of unofficially elected Chittagong Mayor Mohammad Manjur Alam Friday morning took out victory processions across the port city ignoring the downpour.

Returning officer Jesmin Tuli declared Chattagram Unnayan Andolan candidate Manjur elected unofficially at around 10:30am.
After announcing the polls results, Tuli said, “I’m very happy as the election was held in a peaceful manner. I’m hopeful that all will accept the results.”
