An Appellate Division bench of the Supreme Court (SC) yesterday passed two separate orders permitting Awami League candidate from Jashore-4 constituency Enamul Haque Babul and independent candidate Alam Ahmed for the Gazipur-4 constituency to participate in the National Election.
An apex court bench led by Chief Justice Obaidul Hassan passed the orders yesterday.
The EC cancelled Bablu and Alam’s candidacy as their names were on the loan defaulter’s list, after ap-plications were made by their opponents.
Babul, however, filed a writ which upheld the EC’s decision. Later, he filed an appeal against the HC order.
On the other hand, Alam’s writ was dismissed in the High Court and he appealed against it.
