The nomination papers of Dr Reza Kibria – son of late finance minister and Awami League leader Shah AMS Kibria – for Habiganj 1 constituency, have been rejected—because of his status as a loan defaulter.

Habiganj returning officer and Deputy Commissioner Mahmudul Kabir Murad announced this as candidates were being selected, at the deputy commissioner's office, on Sunday.

He said Reza's nomination forms were rejected because he has defaulted on his City Bank loans.

Dr Reza Kibria submitted his nomination papers to the district returning officer to run as a Jatiya Oikya Front candidate, for Habiganj 1 constituency, in the 11th parliamentary election.

Later, Reza told reporters that he failed to pay loan worth Tk 5,500 to Citi Bank for yearly renewal of its credit card as he was abroad.

However, the payment has been already made and he would appeal against the RO's decision to cancel his nomination papers, he added.

Meanwhile, female MP Amatul Kibria Keya Chowdhury's nomination for the same constituency has been rejected because she concealed personal information and did not sign her affidavit.

When is the election?
