Suraya Bibi, an independent candidate, has created history by winning the elections for the PK-1 Chitral seat in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly.
She is now the first woman ever to be elected from Chitral to the provincial assembly, defeating Shakeel Ahmed of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Pakistan-Fazl by a margin of over 8,000 votes.
In the PK-1 Chitral constituency, which has a total of 130,189 registered voters (60,645 women and 69,544 men), Suraya Bibi secured the support of over 18,000 voters.
The province is likely to see a government formed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) backed candidates, and Suraya Bibi was also supported by PTI.
As per unofficial results, independent candidates have won 84 seats, with Jamiat Ulama-e-Islam Pakistan-Fazl and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML N) securing 7 and 5 seats, respectively.
