Former Supreme Court (SC) Justice AHM Shamsuddin Choudhury Manik has demanded the cancellation of BNP’s mayoral aspirant Tabith Awal’s candidacy for allegedly concealing information in his affidavits submitted with the Election Commission (EC).
He came up with the demand following a meeting with Election Commissioner Rafiqul Islam at the Nirbachan Bhaban in the capital’s Agargaon on Thursday.The meeting was held at around 1:30 pm.
The Former SC Justice told media, “BNP nominated mayoral candidate for Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) election Tabith Awal has concealed info in his affidavits about being a shareholder in Singapore’s NFM Energy Private Limited. His candidacy should legally be scrapped for this.”
AHM Shamsuddin Choudhury Manik also informed that he has already sent a legal notice to the EC in this regard.
“I will file a writ petition with High Court (HC) seeking cancellation of Tabith Awal’s candidacy,” he added.
