Independent aspirant concealing info seeks candidacy reinstatement

Mymensingh-11 Constituency

Staff Correspondent: Independent aspirant for Mymensingh-11 constituency (Bhaluka), Mohammed Abdul Wahed, whose candidacy has been revoked for manipulating the submission of one percent of voters in his support, has appealed before the Election Commission to reconsider his case.
However, our investigation revealed that Abdul Wahed concealed several pieces of information, including his dual citizenship and ownership of a renowned company abroad.
According to available information, along with Bangladeshi citizenship, he holds citizenship in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Additionally, he is the owner and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the well-known “Desh-Besh Group of Company” based in PNG.
Furthermore, in his affidavit, Abdul Wahed, hailing from the village of Angargara in Bhaluka Upazila, Mymensingh, failed to mention the values of his lands and establishments.
Experts assert that there is no room for the restoration of his candidacy if the Election Commission considers the concealment of significant information.
Earlier, the Mymensingh Deputy Commissioner and Returning Officer for the 12th Jatiya Sangsad Elections in Mymensingh, Didar-E-Alam Mohammad Maksud Chowdhury, canceled his nomination paper due to various discrepancies.
Locals said, Wahed is spending huge amount of money for regaining his candidacy at any cost.
