Jhenaidah Municipal Polls

AL aspirant’s candidacy revoked

The Election Commission (EC) has canceled the candidature of Md Abdul Khalek nominated by Awami League (AL) for the post of mayor in Jhenaidah Municipal Polls on charges of violating electoral code of conduct.

A circular of the EC signed by Deputy Secretary Md Mizanur Rahman was issued in this regard on Thursday.

According to the circular, supporters of Md Abdul Khalek obstructed the campaign of independent candidate Md Qayyum Shahriar Jahedi.

The frequent attacks on Shahriar Jahedi and his supporters were reported by the print and electronic media.

Replying to a query, Abdul Khalek earlier admitted his guilt and pledged not to make any further attacks.
