The High Court has directed the Election Commission to register Trinomul BNP led by former BNP minister Nazmul Huda as a political party.
The bench of Justice Tariq ul Hakim and Justice Md Shohrowardi issued the directive on Sunday after hearing a writ petition filed by Nazmul Huda in August this year.
The former BNP leader filed the petition challenging the Election Commission’s decision to reject his application seeking registration of his party. The EC on June 14 this year rejected the application saying that he did not submit the application and
Chalan for the registration on time.
The HC on August 14 following the writ petition issued a rule asking the Election Commission to explain why it should not be directed to register the Trinomul BNP led by Nazmul Huda as a political party.
After holding hearing of the rule, the court today delivered the verdict.
Mentionable, Nazmul Huda announced the formation of the new political party named Trinomul BNP on November 20, 2015.
