This is a old bug. You can fix it by...

Have the companion rejoin your party. Then leave them in town.. Leave the town, go back and pick them up again. Then their flags should be cleared and you can assign them party roles, govenor/party leader positions again.

It seems that if they escape captivity it doesn't clear that flag. So when you try to assign them roles, the game still think they are captive and unavailable.
 
I apologize for the snark, and I appreciate you trying to be helpful. It's just that this was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back for me, and I have uninstalled the game for the sake of my mental well-being.
 
Forwarded to the QA team for further investigation. We will reach out again if we need more information. Thanks for reporting and sorry for any inconvenience!
 
I also have this problem, I have noticed that my engineer is not assigned after starting an important siege, but now cannot correct. I can see that my party members are not available to assign roles to and cannot afford to leave the siege, and fiddle around in other towns just to get around a long standing bug that shouldn't exist at this stage in the game. In my opinion you either have good devs that fix faults that make you a good software developer or your company is a substandard, unprofessional company. This really should have been sorted by now.
 
I also have the same issue. Any other way in game to sort this bug out ?
Put them into a town/castle then pick them back up or speak to them through the party page and tell them what role you want them to take. Their portrait will be blank in the clan parties page but they do have the role.

I also discovered this. Speaking to the required party member is clearly the way, however you still need to remember to do this after EVERY mission you send them on because if you don't and require them to have a role during a siege then there is no way to change this. The Party assignment page SHOULD be working as intended.
