Jamaat cannot contest in next polls: Shah Nawaz

Staff Correspondent:

Election Commissioner Shah Nawaz on Thursday said Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami cannot contest elections as it is no longer a registered political party as the High Court (HC) declared illegal its registration.   ‘’Jamaat is no more a registered political party as the High Court has declared its registration illegal,’’ he told reporters at his Election Commission secretariat office, reports UNB.   The High Court on November 2 published its full judgment cancelling the registration of Jamaat-e-Islami with the Election Commission as a political party.   The High Court on August 1 declared illegal the registration of Jamaat as a political party.
