News Desk4 months ago

Imagine being just 25 years old and about to become Pakistan’s youngest ever parliamentarian! That’s exactly the story of Nawabzada Jamal Khan Raisani, who recently won the hearts of voters in Quetta’s NA-264 III constituency.

In a historic election, Raisani defeated a seasoned political heavyweight, Sardar Akhtar Jan Mengal, proving that age is just a number when it comes to making a difference. His victory marks a turning point in Pakistani politics, showing that young voices like his are ready to shake things up.

Born in 1999, Raisani comes from a family with a long history of political involvement. But unlike many in his position, he’s not interested in riding on the coattails of his family’s legacy. Instead, he’s all about representing the everyday people and their needs.

“I don’t believe in dynasty, I believe in the common man’s politics, I believe in student politics,” Raisani emphasized in a recent interview.

His win is part of a larger trend of young people stepping up to the plate in Pakistani politics. Before him, Dr. Sumera Shams made headlines by becoming the youngest lawmaker in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial assembly in 2018.

The dominance of political dynasties has been a long-standing issue in Pakistani politics, but Raisani’s victory signals a shift towards a more diverse and inclusive political landscape.

Beyond the symbolism of his win, Raisani’s platform focuses on real issues facing Balochistan, Pakistan’s largest yet most underdeveloped province. He’s passionate about creating job opportunities and improving education, all while navigating the complex challenges of separatist insurgency and enforced disappearances.

For people like Toqeer Ahmed Mirani, a resident of Quetta, Raisani’s victory is a breath of fresh air. Mirani believes that having a young lawmaker like Raisani will finally give a voice to the youth of Quetta who have long been ignored.

As Raisani gears up to take on his new role, his win serves as a beacon of hope for a new generation of leaders. With his dedication to making a difference and his focus on the issues that matter most, Raisani is ready to bring about positive change not just in Quetta, but across Pakistan.
