The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has restructured its central committee as well as committees of affiliated organisations just before the Eid-ul-Azha. 

In a latest development, the BNP on Saturday made significant changes to its central committee, appointing 39 individuals to positions such as advisors, joint secretaries general and organising secretaries. 

Additionally, two international affairs committees were formed.

Many of the 39 newly appointed individuals in the central committee had previous roles, and many have been promoted, according to BNP activists. 

Apart from the committee dissolution and central committee restructuring, the BNP has also announced an 11-member Foreign Affairs Advisory Committee with Tarique Rahman as its chairman.

Members include Shama Obaed, Anindya Islam Amit, Barrister Nasir Uddin Asim, Barrister Naushad Jameer, Advocate Nipun Roy Chowdhury, and Engineer Ishraq Hossain.
