Former MSC President Obaidul Karim and former director-in charge Lokman Hossain Bhuiyan didn’t submit their nomination papers.
The last election of MSC was held in 2011 when Obaidul Karim was elected the MSC president. However, the committee was dissolved by a court after some of the club members filed a petition regarding some membership issues.
After a long-term court case, the Supreme Court gave a stay order of the lower court and appointed Attorney General and President of Bangladesh Supreme Court Bar Association Executive Committee Adv AM Amin Uddin as an independent president of the club in 2018.
