GM Quader, younger brother of late Hussain Muhammad Ershad, has been made Chairman of Jatiya Party, the opposition party in parliament. 

Party's Secretary-General Md Mashiur Rahaman Ranga confirmed the information at a press conference at JaPa chairman's Banani office in the capital on Thursday noon.

Earlier in May, Ershad appointed Quader as the party acting chairman as he cannot carry out party activities due to his illness. 

Hussain Muhammad Ershad passed away at Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka on Sunday at the age of 89. 

According to the party constitution, the acting chairman will be officially made the chairman of Jatiya Party if the party chief passes away.
