Jatiya Party leaders reach a consensus to avert split: Ranga

Jatiya Party secretary-general Mosiur Rahman Ranga said, the two feuding groups of Jatiya Party have finally reached a consensus to keep the party united accepting.

He said this at a press conference at the office of the chairman of the Jatiya Party at Banani in the capital on Sunday (September 8).

The Jatiya Party has reached a compromise on the leadership tussle between its founder HM Ershad’s brother GM Quader and widow Raushan Ershad that threatened to split the party.

The party has agreed to hand the chairmanship to GM Quader, in keeping with the will of Ershad, while Raushan will be the leader of the opposition in parliament, Jatiya Party’s Secretary-General.

The candidate for Ershad’s Rangpur-3 seat will be decided in a meeting between the party chairman and secretary-general.

The consensus was reached in a meeting between the leaders of the two factions at Baridhara’s Cosmopolitan Club on Saturday.
