The Election Commission released the draft voter list, comprising the candidates, of the upcoming BCB election Monday, without the name of former board president Saber Hossain Chowdhury.
Saber, who did not make the 167-candidate list, had criticised the BCB formation early this month.
Regarding Saber’s omission from the list, BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury said, “We included the name from Baridhara Dazzlers in the voter list. Saber Hossain Chowdhury’s name was not there. One Reaz Ahmed’s name was there.”
The EC will announce the final voter list Tuesday evening at 5pm.
On Friday, the candidate papers will be given out at the Returning Officer’s branch. The candidates can buy the papers for Tk10,000 (non-refundable).
On October 29, the candidates can withdraw their nomination. On the same day, the EC will release the final list containing the names of the candidates.
Two days later, the election will be held at the BCB board room from 10am-5pm.
The preliminary result will be given out on the same day. However, the final result will be announced on November 1 at 3pm.
