The 7th election was supposed to be held in 2020, but it was not possible due to the Corona epidemic. This time, after various speculations, preparations are being made for the election.

Recently, an election commission of 8 members has been formed headed by Khalek Matubbar, general secretary of the outgoing committee. The Assistant Election Commissioners are Hafeez Abdul Latif, Osman Gani Kamal, Zakir Hossain, Abdul Bachit, S Alam Nipu, Fazlul Haque, Humayun Kabir Bhuiya, Mosharraf Hawladar.
