  • Amir Khasru
  • Matiur Choudhury

The chief election commissioner of Bangladesh , ATM Shamsul Huda said , if the state of emergency remains in force till the last date of the scrutiny of nomination papers, persons convicted under the Emergency Powers Rules will become ineligible to contest the polls. He also said that those who defaulted with their loans or bills will also not be eligible to become a candidate for the election.

Huda said on Tuesday to the Deputy Commissioners that after receiving the lists of the convicts under emergency rule , he will send the list to them. He was inaugurating the second phase of the training program for deputy commissioners, who will act as returning officers during the parliamentary polls.
