Aspirants or banks or financial institutions will be able to lodge petitions with the Election Commission (EC) challenging returning officers' (ROs) decisions over rejection and acceptance of nomination papers from Tuesday as the scrutiny of the papers have been completed.

As the ROs have completed the scrutiny of the nomination papers submitted by aspirants to contest in the upcoming 12th Jatiya Sangsad (JS) elections slated for January 7, the aggrieved individuals or institutions could file petitions with the EC between December 5 and 9, said an EC press release.

The aggrieved individuals or institutions have to file the appeal to the EC with a main copy of the petition in a memorandum format and six photocopies of it from 10:30am to 4pm everyday, it said.

The EC has set up 10 booths at the Nirbachan Bhaban for the country's 10 regions to receive the petitions, the release said, adding that the EC will dismiss 100 petitions as per the serial number everyday from December 10 to 15.

After the hearing of the appeals, the verdicts will be displayed on monitor and the PDF copies of the judgments will be sent to the e-mail accounts of the respective parties, including the ROs and these will be published on the EC website.

The copies of the verdicts will also be distributed by respective officials from the reception desk at the Nirbachan Bhaban.

The ROs will distribute election symbols among candidates on December 18.
