SC lifts bar on Faridpur municipal polls

The Appellate Division of Supreme Court today stayed a High Court order for 8 weeks that had halted the election to Faridpur municipality scheduled for December 10 this year.

The Chamber Judge Md Nuruzzaman passed the order after hearing an appeal by the state.

With this fresh order, there will be no bar over holding the by-polls in due time.

On November 25, the HC stayed the election to Faridpur municipality after hearing a writ petition.

Md Atiar Rahman, a resident of the municipality, filed the writ petition on November 15.

The HC had also issued a rule seeking explanation as to why the Election Commission's (EC) announcement of the election schedule should not be declared illegal as the process of turning the municipality into a city corporation is underway.
