Zila Parishad

According to the law, the Zila Parishad should have been comprised of 1(one) Zila Parishad chairman, 15 (fifteen) members and five woman members from the five reserved seats for women. But presently, there is no elected representative. At present, until the election for Zila Parishad is held as per law, the administrators appointed by the government are performing the duties of the Zila Parishad. It is worth mentioning here that except the 3 hill districts in Chittagong, the government appointed new administrators for 61 Zila Parishads in December 15, 2011. Most of these administrators are leaders of party in power of the government.

The divisions of Bangladesh are divided into 64 districts, or zila (Bengali: জেলা jela). The districts are further subdivided into 493 sub-districts or towns, or upazila (উপজেলা upojela).
The district are run by a Deputy Commissioner (popularly abbreviated to “DC”) who is appointed by the government from a Deputy secretary of B.C.S. Administration Cadre.
