Ershad named parliament opposition leader

Jatiya Paty Chairman HM Ershad has been approved as leader of the opposition party in the parliament.

On Thursday, Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury also ratified Jatiya Party co-chairman GM Quader as deputy leader of the opposition.

The parliament secretariat issued a statement on Thursday confirming the ratifications.

Jatiya Party is now the second largest fraction in the parliament with 22 seats, which the party got in the December 30, 2018 election.

The Ershad-led party was allies with the Awami League before the parliament but decided to form the main opposition following the landslide victory of the Awami-League.
