Demand-driven campaign for the mayoral elections

The National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the Institute of Informatics and Development (IID) have begun a monthly Policy Breakfast series that will provide a unique insight into emerging issues where participants will have an opportunity to better understand challenges to policy implementation.

After 12 years without elected representations, the Election Commission Bangladesh (ECB) has recently announced preparations for Dhaka North and South City Corporations Elections which are expected to occur by mid-2015. In this context, the first IID Policy Breakfast was held on ‘Delhi Elections: Lessons for Dhaka City Corporations’.
