The High Court yesterday cleared way for holding election to the posts of directors of Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) on May 5.
The court discharged the rule it had issued earlier questioning the inaction of authorities to halt the election process.
The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Sardar Md Rashed Jahangir came up with the order following a petition filed by election board of FBCCI.
Lawyer Imtiaz Moinul Islam told The Daily Star the petition filed by Amir Uddin Bipu challenging the election process is not acceptable as he is not a member of FBCCI.
There no legal bar to hold the elections, he said.
