The Jatiya Party has reached a compromise on the leadership tussle between its founder HM Ershad’s brother GM Quader and widow Raushon 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 Raushon will be the leader of the opposition in parliament, Jatiya Party’s Secretary General Moshiur Rahman Ranga announced on Sunday.

The candidate for Ershad’s Rangpur-3 seat will be decided in a meeting between the party chairman and secretary general, bdnews24.com reported.

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