Independent candidates Monirul Haque Sakku got the table clock symbol, Nizam Uddin Kaiser the horse symbol, and Kamrul Ahsan Babul the deer symbol. Islami Shashontantra Bangladesh’s Rashedul Islam got the fan symbol.

Returning officer Shahedunnani Chowdhury allotted the electoral symbols at Cumilla Shilpakala Academy on Friday morning.

Atik Ullah Khokan, joint general secretary of the Cumilla city Awami League, received the boat symbol on behalf of the party’s candidate Arfanul Haque Rifat.

Cumilla City Corporation polls are slated for June 15.
