Returning Officer accepts KM Shaji’s nomination in Azhikode rejecting LDF’s complaint
Kannur: The returning officer in Azhikode assembly constituency has accepted the nomination papers of UDF candidate KM Shaji. The official took the decision rejecting complaint filed by LDF.
LDF had filed a complaint on behalf of KV Sumesh pointing out the High Court order which disqualified Shaji for 6 years.
Meanwhile, the returning officer received Shaji’s nomination after confirming that he is eligible to contest the polls as per the representation of the people act.
As the Supreme Court issued a stay order on the high court order which disqualified KM Shaji, he is eligible to contest the polls.
The high court issued the order against Shaji after finding him guilty for spreading communalism during the poll campaign.
