Chaudhry served in the position of deputy representative to the Norwegian Parliament from Oslo during the terms 2001–2005 and 2005–2009. Halfway into the latter term, in 2007, he moved up as a regular representative as Heidi Sørensen (who in turn filled in for Kristin Halvorsen) was appointed State Secretary. He has been a member of Parliament since then. When Sørensen returned to Parliament in 2012, Heikki Holmås joined the cabinet, so from then Chaudry replaced him in Parliament.
On 4 December 2012, Chaudry lost a nomination election in Oslo SV for the top spot on the party's ballot in the Norwegian parliamentary election of 2013. He was not interested in spots further down the ballot and was not reelected to the parliament in 2013.
