The independent candidate from Jashore-1

Ashraful Alam Liton has boycotted the election.

He took the decision claiming that supporters of the ruling party candidate were stuffing ballots publicly, hurling crude bombs, and forced his 55 polling agents to leave the voting centres.

Liton, also the former mayor, made the declaration while addressing a briefing at his election campaign office.
