The High Court (HC) on Monday canceled a writ challenging the legality of appointments of chief election commissioner and other four election commissioners.
“Not placed,” said a High Court division bench comprising Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Md. Ashraful Kamal.
One Delwar Hossain filed the writ on November 26, making chief election commissioner, four election commissioners, law secretary and election commission secretary as respondents. The writ also sought cancellation of the gazette notification issued while appointing the commissioners.
Today advocate Eusuf Ali stood for the pleader, while deputy attorney general Ekramul Haque Tutul moved the case for the state. After hearing both the parties, the High Court binned the writ.-BSS
