The government on Tuesday appointed former industries secretary Abdul Halim as commissioner of the Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission for the next four years.

The Financial Institutions Division of the finance ministry issued a circular in this regard on Tuesday.

Last month, the government appointed Shibli Rubayat ul Islam as chairman and Mizanur Rahman and Shaikh Shamsuddin Ahmed as commissioners of the stock market regulatory body for the next four years.

The BSEC consists of a chairman and four commissioners and with Halim’s appointment all the posts are now filled.

The chairman and the three commissioners were appointed over the completion of the tenure of M Khairul Hossain, the longest serving chairman of the stock market regulatory body, on May 14.

Swapan Kumar Bala and Helal Uddin Nizami also completed their tenures as commissioners on April 16 and May 3 respectively.

The post of the fourth commissioner had remained vacant for a couple of years.

Khondoker Kamaluzzaman has been serving as a BSEC commissioner since October 12, 2017.
