Hawladar files writ against rejection of nomination
Jatiya Party’s former secretary general ABM Ruhul Amin Hawladar filed a writ petition with the High Court seeking acceptance of his nomination paper, reports UNB.
Lawyer AF Hasan Arif filed the petition on behalf of the Jatiya Party leader in the morning.
The hearing on the petition is likely to be held at the bench of justice Tariq ul Hakim and justice Md Shohrowardi in the afternoon.
The election commission on Friday rejected the petition of ABM Ruhul Amin Hawladar on the 2nd day of hearing petitions filed against rejection and acceptance of nomination papers by returning officers.
Jatiya Party chairman HM Ershad on Saturday appointed its presidium member Ruhul Amin Hawlader as his special assistant giving him the second in command position in the party.
The new development came just four days after Hawlader was removed from the party’s secretary general post.
