12 Women Were Elected MNAS in the 12th General Election Despite Vigorous Competition

Twelve women who belong to four different political parties have been elected straight to the national parliament after they emerged victorious in their respective seats during nationwide general elections.

Of these, five women have run for office as independents with support from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, four are members of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, two are members of the Pakistan People’s Party, and one is a candidate from the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan.

Ayesha Nazir Jatt from Vehari, Amber Majeed Niazi from Layyah, Zartaj Gul from Dera Ghazi Khan, Shandana Gulzar from Peshawar, and Aneeqa Mehdi Bhatti from Hafizabad—all supported by the PTI—won after fierce competition.

The opposition candidates, Nosheen Iftikhar from Sialkot, Maryam Nawaz from Lahore, Shezra Mansab from Nankana Sahib, and Tehmina Doulatana from Vehari, were defeated by the PML-N women to get to the house.

Three women became victorious from the campaign in Sindh: Aasia Ishaque of MQM won from Karachi, while Dr. Nafeesa Shah and Shazia Marri of the Pakistan Peoples Party won from Sanghar and Khairpur.
