"No one's candidacy will be cancelled if appeals continue," Kaiser Kamal said on the day.
Mirza Fakhrul echoed the hope and said, many of the BNP men will get back their candidacies through appeal, Khaleda Zia will also contest as a legal candidate if she gets justice.
The BNP Secretary General also thanked the Election Commission for sending back party aspirants candidacies in most of the seats where they were denied on December 2.
