EC approves Joypurhat-1 BNP candidate's nomination
The Election Commission (EC) approved the nomination of Joypurhat-1 BNP candidate Fazlur Rahman on Thursday.
The Joypurhat returning officer, deputy commissioner Mohammad Zakir Hossain, cancelled his nomination paper during scrutiny on allegation of his failure to submit the receipt copy of his resignation letter from the post of the upazila chairman.
Fazlur Rahman said he challenged the returning officers’ decision as he had attached the photocopy of the resignation letter with the nomination paper.
Three BNP candidates had submitted nomination papers in Joypurhat-1 constituency, and only Fazlur’s nomination was cancelled. A greater part of the party activists became happy at his nomination approval.
