The election of the BFI was supposed to be held on February 18, but the results, announced as ‘elected unopposed’ on February 13, were challenged by three petitions. The court noted that “it was alleged that all nomination forms of groups opposite to, or other than, the present incumbent president have been deliberately rejected”.
