The bench of Appellate Division Justice Hasan Foyez Siddique stayed the High Court order

The Supreme Court on Tuesday deferred the hearing on a writ petition filed challenging a High Court order that cleared the way for BNP leaders Iqbal Hasan Mahmud Tuku and Ruhul Quddus Talukdar Dulu to contest the 11th parliamentary election.

The bench of Appellate Division Justice Hasan Foyez Siddique stayed the High Court order and fixed Wednesday for hearing the petition in a full-bench of the division, said Tuku's lawyer Taijullah Mamun.

Earlier in the day, the Election Commission filed a writ petition with the Supreme Court challenging the High Court order.

Clearing the way for them to contest the December 30 polls, the High Court on Monday directed the commission to accept the nominations of the BNP leaders and stayed previous rejection orders of their respective returning officers.

The commission had earlier rejected appeals by Tuku from Sirajganj 2 and Dulu from Natore 2.

Both filed petitions with the High Court on Sunday against the commission’s decision.
