A member of the BNP Standing Committee, Mirza Abbas, said today that the Election Commission did not agree with his candidacy for the Dacca-9 electoral district.
“The returning officer did not accept his document on the nomination for Dacca-9,” said Daily Star, Mizanur Rahman Soel, personal secretary to Mirza Abbas.
On the other hand, the BNP leader presented his nomination paper for Dacca-8, and his wife Afroza Abbas submitted a candidature for Dacca-9, Soel said.
Abbas submitted his candidacies through his representatives, he added.
The Daily Star cannot get any comment from the commission in this regard.
