HC asks EC to accept candidacy of AL candidate

The High Court yesterday directed the Election Commission (EC) to accept the nomination paper of Awami League candidate Ataur Rahman Shamim from Moulavibazar-2 constituency in the national elections.
An HC bench comprising Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain and Justice Quamrul Islam Siddiqui passed the order following a writ petition filed by Shamim against the EC decision on his candidacy.
Earlier, the EC had cancelled the nomination paper of Shamim for being a loan defaulter.
Hearing of the petition was held yesterday. Advocate Mahbubey Alam appeared for the petitioner.
