Dr Iftikhar Ahmed has become the first-ever Bangladeshi-born Swiss lawmaker as he took oath in Parliament (Conseil Communal) of the prosperous, picturesque French-speaking Commune of Founex (Canton of Vaud), on the outskirts of Geneva on Monday, reports UNB.  Iftikhar, who has been living in Switzerland for last 40 years, is a development economist having worked at the International Labour Office (ILO) in Geneva during three decades (1974-2004).
He also served as the editor-in-chief of the International Labour Review and director of the ILO’s Bureau of Publications, according to a message received here on Tuesday.
