EC can cancel registration of BNP if it wants: Hasan

An Awami League (AL) senior leader said on Monday if the Election Commission (EC) wants to cancel the registration of BNP; it can do it in line with the High Court verdict on the 5th constitutional amendment, reports BSS.

AL publicity and publication secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud made the comments while speaking at a discussion organised by Awami Muktijoddha Projonmo League at Dhaka Reporters Unity in the city on Monday, marking the 87th birth anniversary of Bangamata Begum Fazilatunnesa Mujib.

"In 2005, the High Court gave a judgment on the constitution's 5th amendment declaring all activities of military government illegal. The Appellate Davison also upheld the verdict," he said.

Hasan, also AL spokesperson, said BNP is an illegal party too as it was established under direct patronage  of military government. "So, if the Election Commission wants, it can cancel the registration of BNP," he added.

About the 16th constitutional amendment, Hasan said BNP is showing ecstasy

over the court verdict on the 16th amendment.

"Don't try to make the water trouble by showing ecstasy in the court verdict on the 16th constitutional amendment as you (BNP) can get trapped in it," he said.

Referring to the incident of urine test of leaders BNP's students wing Jatiyatabadi Chattra Dal, Hasan said BNP leaders should give such test before Chattra Dal leaders.

If BNP leaders give urine test, maximum of them will lose the ability of doing politics," he added.

Former State Minister for Home Advocate Shamsul Haque Tuku, Sagufta Yasmin Emily, MP and Dhaka City South Awami League leader Minhaj Uddin Mintu, among others, addressed the function.
