Staff Correspondent: Election Commissioner Mahbub Talukdar has said that the marked leaders of Jamaat-e-Islami will not be allowed to participate in the upcoming eleventh parliamentary elections.

The Election Commissioner said this in response to a question from journalists at his office at Agargaon in the capital on Tuesday afternoon.

“The registration of Jamaat-e-Islami has been cancelled due to a High Court order. Many of them have been tried for war crimes. We will not accept those who are marked Jamaat-e-Islami leaders in the elections”, he said.

He also said, “If any of the Jamaat-e-Islami leaders wants to participate in the polls as a separate candidate, then in the meeting of the Election Commission, we will take a decision by analyzing the matter.  All of the Jamaat leaders are not marked. Those who are marked will not be allowed to participate in the polls.
