The High Court yesterday asked the Election Commission to accept the nomination paper of Krishak Sramik Janata League (KSJL) president Abdul Kader Siddique.

An HC vacation bench comprising Justice Miftah Uddin Chowdhury and Justice Qazi M Ejaharul Haque Akand passed the order in the morning after a hearing on a writ petition filed by Kader Siddique challenging the cancellation of his nomination.

The bench also stayed the cancellation orders of Kader Siddique’s nomination, issued by the Chief Election Commissioner and returning officer, said Barrister Raghib Rauf Chowdhury, a lawyer for Kader Siddique.

Talking to reporters emerging from the court, the KSJL chief said he has got justice from the High Court. “I moved the High Court as I believe in the rule of law, and I’ve got justice. Now I want to get back to people,” he said.

Attorney General Mahbubey Alam said they will appeal against the HC decision.

Earlier on October 20, Kader Siddique filed the writ petition with the HC challenging the legality of the cancellation of his nomination to contest the Tangail 4 by-polls.
