Moving the High Court is the only option left for the former Jatiya Party secretary general

The Election Commission has upheld the cancellation of former Jatiya Party secretary general Ruhul Amin Howlader’s nomination for loan default.

He had appealed against the returning officer’s decision to declare his candidacy invalid. The commission confirmed the invalidation after a hearing on Friday.

Howlader was sacked from his party post on December 3. His successor Mashiur Rahman Ranga said Howlader had stepped down on health grounds, but is still a party presidium member.

The Jatiya Party leader and 542 others had challenged the rejection of nominations. The commission heard 160 appeals on Thursday and is scheduled to resolve 150 petitions on Friday, and the rest on Saturday.

On the first day, 80 aspirants were cleared for contesting the December 30 election. Seventy-six others were rejected.
