Nomination of 3 candidates cancelled

CHATTOGRAM: Nomination papers of three candidates for the by-election in Chattogram-8 (Boalkhali-Chandgaon) constituency were cancelled after scrutiny on Wednesday.
The candidates who had their nomination papers cancelled were Kamal Pasha of National Peoples Party (NPP) and Independent candidates Khademul Islam Chowdhury and Mir Md Ramzan Ali.
According to the Election Commission, aspirants have to submit signatures of one per cent of the voters of the constituency with the nomination papers.
But independent candidates Khademul and Ramzan failed to submit signatures of voters resulting in cancellation of their papers, said Chattogram Regional Election Officer and Returning Officer (RO) Md Hasanuzzaman. The nomination paper of Kamal Pasha was cancelled as he was a loan defaulter, he said.
