The Election Commission has cancelled the candidacy of Mir Mohammad Nasiruddin, BNP nominated candidate from Chittagong 5, and he will not be allowed to contest the 11th general election.

The Election Commission disqualified him from contesting the polls on Thursday, based on his conviction in a lawsuit.

After the rejection, the BNP leader told journalists that “The Election Commission was acting as a puppet of the government.”

Earlier on Monday, Nasiruddin appealed against the commission’s initial rejection of his nomination.

The BNP leader had claimed that the returning officer rejected his nomination after “facing government pressure.”

The commission on Sunday examined a total 3,065 nomination papers and rejected 786 of them due to various issues, such as lack of information, false information, criminal and loan default charges.

On the other hand, 2,279 candidates – both independents and leaders from different political parties – were given the green light to contest the polls, slated for December 30.

Throughout Monday, 84 candidates filed their appeals at the commission's Agargaon office in Dhaka.
