Mysuru: Election for new mayor of Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) will be held on August 25.

According to a press release from the council secretary of city corporation “the election will be under the chairmanship of regional commissioner on August 25 at 12 noon at Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar Council Hall. The process to receive nominations started on Tuesday and can be filed till 10 am two hours before the election.”

Election for new mayor is necessitated due to the disqualification of Rukmini Madegowda the previous mayor of MCC. Rukmini was disqualified after the high court upheld the order of a lower court in Mysuru.

Besides, the court ordered for the reelection to Ward 36-Yaraganahalli of MCC that was represented by Rukmini.

The court order follows a plea filed by Rukmini’s political rival Rajani annaiah alleging that the former did not provide the details related to her assets in her poll affidavit.
