Maryam Nawaz Elected as Punjab’s Chief Minister, US Responds

5/5 - (1 vote)

Maryam Nawaz Sharif has made history as the first woman to be elected Chief Minister of Punjab, Pakistan. Her groundbreaking victory has drawn praise from the United States, with State Department spokesperson Mathew Miller emphasizing its significance for women’s representation in Pakistani politics.

“The election of Maryam Nawaz Sharif as Chief Minister of Punjab marks a major milestone,” Miller stated. “The United States stands ready to work with Pakistan to further integrate women into all aspects of the country’s political system, economy, and civil society. We believe an inclusive Pakistan benefits all its citizens, leading to greater strength and prosperity. It’s heartening to see progress towards equal representation anywhere in the world.”

Miller acknowledged the challenges Maryam Nawaz overcame, including what was described as politically motivated cases and imprisonment. Her triumph serves as a powerful symbol of progress for women’s participation in Pakistani leadership.

The US-Pakistan Women’s Council was cited as a platform for continued collaboration towards greater female inclusion in Pakistani society.
