The High Court (HC) has directed the Election Commission (EC) to register the Ganosamhati Andolon as political a party within 30 days.
A bench of Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Md Ashraful Kamal came up with the order after hearing a rule seeking explanation as to why the Ganosamhati Andolon will not be registered as a political party.The rule was issued following a writ petition filed by Ganosamhati Andolon convener Zonayed Saki on November 11, last year.
Deputy Attorney General Ekramul Haque Tutul represented the state while Barrister Jotirmoy Barua stood for the petitioner.
Seeking registration (as a political party), the Ganosamhati Andolon submitted an application to the EC on December 31, 2017. But the EC did not pay heed to the matter.
On September 23, 2018 a legal notice was served on the Commission (EC) seeking review of their decision but they failed to respond to the notice.
