The Deputy mayor reservation this time is for Women (Open).
The mayoral elections could not take place in August after a councillor from Mangalore had filed a petition challenging the reservation of such posts. Now however the court has ordered that elections can take place in all corporations except Mangalore.
So Who will be the next Mayor ?

When will this linguistic politics end.?
wait and watch the peace in bgm is about to get distracted as MES will bag mayor seat.They dnt hv anything to do instead inject venom by hate mongers speeches. when they ‘ll learn to love human kind and work hard for development of city.
Dear Amrut don’t spread vishha (venom) like this.
tali kabi ek hath se nahi bajti……
People on both side are equally responsible for the current status of belgaum.
So it is that time of the year for MES to regroup and spew hatred around. May be even this time they will invite some unrelated politician from mahrashtra to exploit the self-created situation.
Not sure when there will elections in belgavi on grounds of human development, education, manufacturing, advancement in agriculture, self-sufficiency etc.
Using the word Belgavi for Belgaum is documentary unrealistic and not relevant. None has the evidence “Gazette Notification” regarding the change of Belgaum to Belgavi. Belgaum city and nearby places still comprises of 70% Marathi speaking people, so the question of ending the linguistic problem does not arise. The Legislatures, Judiciary and the Police Forces are of Karnataka. I hope no forces except Military forces are remaining to be applied on Marathi people. Still lets see who wins the Belgaum Corporation.
