SC clears way to hold DUCSU polls

DHAKA, Jan 6, 2019 (BSS) – The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court
(SC) today cleared way to hold Dhaka University Central Students Union
(DUCSU) polls as it withdrew the stay imposed by its chamber judge court on
the election.

“Stand will be over till March 31,” said a four member Appellate Division
bench headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain.

Advocate Manjil Morshed, who moved a writ in this regard, said now there is
no legal bar in holding the polls of DUCSU.

The High Court on January 17, 2018, ordered to hold the DUCSU polls within
six months, prompting the university authorities to file a leave to appeal
petition, pleading to stay the judgement.

After holding hearing on the plea, the Appellate Division Chamber Judge
court on October 1, 2018, stayed the High Court order and sent the matter to
Appellate Division full bench for further hearing.
