Kader Siddique’s nomination paper illegal: HC
04 February 2015, Nirapad News: The High Court today passed an order upholding the decision of the Election Commission (EC), cancelling the nomination paper of Krishak Sramik Janata League President Abdul Kader Siddique for Tangail-4 by-election illegal.
A High Court division bench comprising Justice Md Ashfaqul Islam and Justice Zafar Ahmed rejected a plea of Siddique challenging the legality of cancellation of his candidacy.
“There is no scope of questioning the jurisdiction of the plea of the EC on cancelling Siddique’s nomination. The High Court rejected the writ petition filed by Siddique and that is why there is no way for him to contest in the election,” said Barrister Dr Mohammad Yasin Khan, counsel for EC.
