Former BNP leader Enam Ahmed Chowdhury has been made Awami League Advisory Council member.

Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina included Enam in the advisory council on Sunday evening, a press release said.

Enam, a former vice-chairman of BNP and an adviser to the party’s Chairperson Khaleda Zia, joined Awami League on December 19, 2018, after failing to secure nomination from Sylhet 1 constituency for the 11th general election.

Former bureaucrat Enam Chaudhury was the chairman of the Privatization Commission during the BNP-led government.

He had also served as the convener of BNP’s Foreign Affairs Committee.

Enam was hoping to run with BNP’s ticket from Sylhet 1 constituency. He was in the primary list of BNP nominees, but was later left out.

BNP then nominated Khandaker Abdul Muktadir to contest the December 30 general election from that seat.
