Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad has picked Raushon Ershad, senior co-chairman of the party, as the deputy leader of the opposition in parliament, relieving GM Quader of the post.
“As Chairman of Jatiya Party and leader of the opposition in the House, I’m removing GM Quader from the post of deputy leader… Begum Raushon Ershad has been nominated for the post,” Ershad informed the media in a statement.
The development came a day after the party Chairman relieved his brother GM Quader of the post of cochairman of his party, saying that he has failed to discharge his duties and rather created divisions within the party.
The decision was taken as per the party charter, according to a statement issued by the party.
A proposal was also put to the Speaker of the House to take necessary steps, the release added.
