So he decided to withdraw the candidature.

After withdrawing his nomination paper he told the newsmen, the way that the election of farce held in December 30, in that case there is no possibility of holding any fair election under this government. For this reason according to the decision of his party BSD and Left Democratic Alliance he withdrew his name from the parliament election scheduled to be held on January 27.
