Expatriate Bangladeshi councilor Ibrahim Khalil Masud has been elected as the deputy mayor of Campbelltown City Council in the state of New South Wales, Australia. A new mayor and deputy mayor were elected for a new term in council elections on 5 September. After winning the election, Councilor Ibrahim Khalil Masood took over the post from Councilor Karen Hunt of the current ruling Labor Party. Ibrahim Khalil Masood will serve as Deputy Mayor until September 2024.

Ibrahim Khalil Masood was elected as a councilor for the first time as an independent candidate in 2021 from the Bangladeshi-dominated Campbelltown City Council, one of Sydney’s city councils. Ibrahim Khalil Masood is a familiar face to local Bangladeshis in Sydney. He is also involved in various social service works with the Bangladeshi community. He was born in Netrakona district headquarters of Bangladesh.

Ibrahim Khalil Masood considers it a special honor to be elected as Deputy Mayor in Australia’s mainstream government system. The newly elected Bangladeshi Deputy Mayor told this reporter on the phone, ‘I promise to work for all those who have full faith in me. As a Bangladeshi, I am happy to have the opportunity to serve in a representative position for Bangladeshi people. I want to pray to everyone.

Meanwhile, while congratulating and welcoming Ibrahim Khalil Masood, re-elected Mayor of Campbelltown City Council, George Grace said, “We have joined a history by having a Bangladeshi Deputy Mayor in our council for the first time. Khalil is one of our young councillors. He has already done a wonderful job. Congratulations and look forward to working together over the next 12 months.’

Earlier in Sydney, another expatriate Bangladeshi, Suman Saha, was elected and served as Deputy Mayor in Cumberland City Council.
