C R Shankar of Janata Dal (Secular) was elected unanimously as President of City Municipal of Council of Hassan on Thursday.

 The election was necessitated following the death of H C Rangaswamy recently.
When the election process began, councillors C R Shankar and two others, H L Vijaykumar and H K Yogendrakumar filed their nominations for the post.

The election was conducted by returning officer Nagaraj, who is also Assistant Commissioner of Hassan.

Following orders from the party high command, Vijaykumar and H K Yogendrakumar withdrew their nominations. This paved way for the unanimous election of Shankar.

The returning officer Nagaraj declared Shankar as the new CMC chief. In the 35-member house, two seats are vacant following death of members.  But, only 30 members attended today’s special meeting.

MLA H S Prakash was present. Soon after the election, the party workers celebrated the victory by bursting crackers and distributing sweets.CMC Commissioner Shivananjegowda and others felicitated the newly-elected president.
