The Election Commission has cancelled an appeal filed against Jatiya Party (JaPa) Chairman HM Ershad, who is contesting the 11th general election from the Rangpur 3 constituency.

The commission gave the decision on Saturday.

 Progotishil Ganatantrik Party candidate Sabbir Ahmed from the same constituency, filed the appeal against Ershad, citing lack of information and fraud as the reason. 

According to Sabbir, Ershad did not show his BA degree certificate and hid information about a large sum of money which Sabbir claims Ershad has saved abroad. 

Sabbir claimed that Ershad has about $3.73 million at National Union Bank of the UAE, which he did not mention in his affidavit.

The general election will take place on December 30.
