Silkcitynews Desk:

The opposition coalition of the Jatiya Oikya Front would not be able to use BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia’s photo in banner, poster or other campaign materials.

The election commission on Wednesday issued the directive in a letter sent to the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Wednesday.

Last week, the BNP sent a letter to the EC asking if the coalition partners can use former prime minister Khaleda Zia’s photo in their campaign materials.

EC secretariat’s additional secretary Mokhlesur Rahman said, the election commission has explained as to whose picture can be used in electioneering.

According to the Representation of the People Order (RPO), no candidate of a registered political party would be able to use pictures of anyone other than his/her own party’s chief in campaign materials, said the EC letter.
