Mintoo, Pintu challenge nomination cancellation

Mayor aspirant BNP leaders Abdul Awal Mintoo and Nasir Uddin Ahmed Pintu today appealed to the Dhaka divisional commissioner challenging the cancellation of their nominations for the upcoming Dhaka city corporation elections.

Hearing on the appeals will be held at 4:00pm on Saturday.

Earlier yesterday, the nominations of Mintoo and Pintu were cancelled during scrutiny.

Mintoo’s lawyer Mahbub Uddin Khokon submitted the appeal around 4:30pm today. After submitting the appeal, he told reporters that his client’s nomination has been cancelled due to “faulty voter list” prepared by the Election Commission.

“We hope for a good result following the hearing,” he said.

Earlier, Aminul Islam, lawyer of Pintu, filed the appeal around 3:20pm.

“Candidature of Pintu has been cancelled due to legal discrimination. We hope that Pintu’s candidature will be declared valid following the hearing,” he said.
