Jatiya Party (JaPa) chairman Hussein Muhammad Ershad has been exempted from the responsibility of the special envoy of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

He was exempt from this responsibility through a notification signed by Cabinet Secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam. A notification was issued on Monday (January 7) from the cabinet division.

It is said that the Prime Minister of Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh has terminated his special envoy Hussein Muhammad Ershad on 24 Poush (Bengali Month) 1425/January 7, 2019. 

Earlier on January 12, 2014, after the formation of Awami League government, Hussein Muhammad Ershad was appointed as special envoy to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

When the Awami League government formed the government for third consecutive times after winning the absolute majority in the 11th parliamentary elections and the main opposition party, JaPa led by Ershad was elected as leader of the opposition of Parliament.
