Dhaka North City Corporation was established on 29 November 2011. Prior to the establishment of the corporation, this urban area was governed by the former Dhaka City Corporation. The Dhaka City Corporation was dissolved by the Local Government (City Corporation) Amendment Bill 2011 on 29 November 2011, passed in the Parliament of Bangladesh, and formally ceased to exist on 1 December 2011, following the President's approval, making way for a Dhaka North and a Dhaka South city corporations. The mayoral elections are non-partisan in nature. The first Dhaka North City Corporation elections were held on 28 April 2015, which saw the victory of Annisul Huq in the first political campaign of his career after having achieved critically acclaimed success in the entrepreneurial and developmental sectors of Bangladesh.
However, Haq died suddenly on a trip to London, while visiting his daughter in November, 2017. In September, the local government ministry issued a circular, announcing the creation of a panel of three senior elected councilors who will act as joint Mayor.
The three panel members, based on seniority, are Ward 21 Councillor Md Osman Goni, Ward 4 Councillor Md Jamal Mostafa and Councillor from reserved Wards 31, 32 and 34, Begum Aleya Sarker Daisy.
