Bangladesh Nationalist Party has got back their single candidates in four constituencies– Dhaka 1, Bogura 7, Jamalpur 4 and Manikganj 2.

Election Commission on Thursday reinstated nominations for Morshed Milton in Bogura 7, Khandakar Abu Ashfaq in Dhaka 1, Faridul Kabir Talukdar in Jamalpur 4, and Abidur Rahman Khan in Manikganj 2 after hearing their appeals.  

The party had no candidates in these constituencies as the returning officers had rejected nomination papers of all the aspirants from BNP.

EC, the appellate authority of the 11th general election, started its three-day hearing at around 10:00am on Thursday over petitions filed against the decision of returning officers over rejection and acceptance of nomination papers in different constituencies.

The commission had so far reinstated candidature of 56 BNP aspirants.
