Mustafa Jabbar, former ICT minister, will continue as a technocrat minister in the new cabinet, who will be sworn in on Monday.
Jabbar, who earlier served as a Minister of Posts, Telecommunications and Information Technology (ICT), will continue in this position in the new cabinet as well.
He is the first technocrat minister in the new cabinet, as he is not an elected member of parliament in the 11th general election.
Born on August 12, 1949, Mustafa Jabbar is best known as the creator of Bijoy Bayanno, the first Bangla keyboard software that was developed in 1988.
A veteran of the 1971 Liberation War, Jabbar completed his bachelor and masters degrees in Bangla Literature at Dhaka University in 1972 and 1974, respectively.
