Chandina UP election postponed

 

The Election Commission (EC) has postponed Cumilla's Chandina Upazila Parishad election. The commission confirmed the decision in a letter on Monday. The order will remain in force till further instruction.  The election was scheduled to be held on June 5 in the fourth phase. The EC scrapped the candidacy of chairman candidate Shah Selim Prodhan on May 12, the letter said.

On May 7, Selim Prodhan filed a writ petition with the High Court, seeking to contest for the post of upazila chairman while retaining the position of union parishad chairman. An HC bench of Justice Md Iqbal Kabir and Justice Md Akhtaruzzaman the next day directed the Election Commission to accept Salim Prodhan's nomination and allocate symbol according to the rules. However, the commission cancelled his nomination as he could not submit necessary documents on the High Court writ.
