  • Print
UNB, Dhaka :
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday said BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's participation in the upcoming national election is under the jurisdiction of court.
"...court will decide whether Khaleda could contest the parliamentary polls...this is not a matter of politics of the ruling party," said Quader while responding to queries
 from reporters at the Secretariat. The AL leader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said the removal of section 7 from the party's constitution before the verdict is very 'mysterious'. The nation is yet to have an answer why BNP has dropped section 7 from its constitution, he added. According to section 7 (e) of the party constitution, if a person is convicted as per 1972 presidential order, declared bankrupt, proved unbalanced, known as corrupt or notorious in society, he or she is disqualified from being member of the national council, the national executive committee, the standing committee or member of executive committee at any level.
