Darwaish

Fehmida Malik, Speaker Pakistan National AssemblyDr. Fehmida Mirza today created history when she became the first ever woman to be elected as speaker of Pakistan’s National Assembly. If I am not wrong, she is also the first every woman to achieve this position in entire Muslim world. She was the candidate of PPP, PML(N), ANP and JUI(F) and secured more than 2/3 of the total votes. She got 249 out of 324 votes casted while her opponent Sardar Mohammad Israr Tareen of PML(Q) could only secure 70 votes. It was interesting to see JUI(F) chief Moulana Fazal Ur Rehman voting for a woman candidate when first he showed some reservations. I guess ministries and urge to join government makes one do anything and everything :). Faisal Kundi has been elected deputy speaker defeating Khush Bakht Shujat.

Dr. Fehmida Mirza belongs to a very influential family of Hyderabad, Sindh and her husband Zulifiqar Mirza is considered a very trusted and close friend of PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari. During previous governments of Benazir Bhutto, Mirza was often accused of being Asif Zardari’s front-man in alleged shady deals. That was why Mirza, whose car registration Zulfi One, used to make waves in the federal capital during those days, disappeared from the scene after the dismissal of second Benazir government in 1996.

Dr. Fehmida Mirza won NA seat in February 18 elections from Badin on a general seat and her husband has also been elected in Sindh Assembly. According to official website of PPPP, born on December 20, 1956 in Karachi, she is an agriculturist and business woman by profession and is politically affiliated with the PPPP. She was previously elected MNA in 1997. Dr. Fehmida Mirza did her M.B.B.S degree from Liaquat Medical College, Jamshoro in the year 1982. Married, with two sons and two daughters, she has travelled to U.S.A, U.K, Canada, Switzerland, France, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand. She enjoys reading.

According to Geo:

Dr. Fehmida Mirza has been elected first ever woman speaker of National Assembly.

Opposition had nominated Israr Tareen for speaker’s office. The voting was carried out through secret ballot.

Dr Fahmida Mirza received 249 out of 324 votes, of which 319 were valid and five votes were declared invalid. Asrar Tareen received 70 votes.

Dr Fehmida Mirza hails from Badin in Sindh and has been winning elections continuously since 1997. She is wife of Dr Zulfiqar Ali Mirza, a close friend of PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari. Hailing from an influential political family of Sindh, the 51-year-old Dr Fehmida Mirza has won the National Assembly seat in open electoral contest from Badin in 1997, 2002 and 2008.

Among prominent members of the family are her grandfather Qazi Abdul Qayyum, who was the first Muslim president of Hyderabad Municipality.

Her uncle Qazi Muhammad Akbar was a member of the Provincial Assembly and served as minister of home, finance, public works and information at various times. Dr Mirza’s father Qazi Abid started his political career as Chairman Hyderabad Division Council. He later served as Federal Minister for Education, Water and Power, Food and Agriculture and Information. He was also thrice Secretary General of the APNS.

Her brother Qazi Asad has served as APNS secretary-general nine times and also remained the CPNE secretary-general. He was also a PPP MNA and in that capacity served as chairman of the standing committee on information. Her cousin Qazi Aslam has been secretary-general APNS four times.

We sincerely wish Dr. Fehmida Mirza best of luck and hope this assembly would be run in a much better way than the previous one. Let’s hope that government formation process completes quickly now and everyone is able to focus on real issues on hand.

    Of course it is a historical day for Pakistan our parliament has elected Dr. Fahmida Mirza, as the first speaker of parliament in the entire Muslim world.
    The attitude of this nascent parliament at the moment seems very mature with the commitment of maintaining its integrity as well as ensuring the restoration and supremacy of independent judiciary.
    I hope the new speaker will run the business of the house with impartiality unlike her predecessor who was alleged to be a speaker of PML Q rather than national assembly.
    Lets us pray and hope for the supremacy of parliament and propagation of real democracy in our country.

    While I am very happy for Dr. Mirza and wish her the best, the high-achieving women of “influential families” (and it looks like she is a landowner, too) are not the representatives of average women any more than their fathers/husbands/brothers are representatives of the average man. The “influential familes” are there to feather their own nests and the fact that their female members are sometimes involved in the process should not surprise anybody. Yet tomorrow this will be on all the feminist blogs on the internet as “a great step forward for women’s rights”. Please. It’s really not. A great step forward for women’s rights would be the repeal of the Hudood ordinances or the emergence of a prominent woman in any field whose achievements don’t have their roots in her family’s high connections.

    Figureheads are just that–figureheads. Some may argue that figureheads have some symbolic value that “trickles down” to other women. But during England’s infamously sexist Victorian times, when women didn’t have any semblance of rights, couldn’t vote, travel without a companion, live independently, or own property, England was ruled by a queen.

    So let’s judge Dr. Mirza by what she does for women, and not claim that this represents progress for women just because she happens to be one.

    And Dr. Mirza if you read this–whatever you do, DON’T hug anybody, please!

    I know her personally and can mention this with confidence that she will prove to be an effective leader in the Assembly. Basic reasons being that she has proved her loyalty, not only to the PPP, to her constituents as well. She does not belong to the class of ‘illiterate elite’, is a highly educated woman herself and descends from an educated family of Sind. My congratulations to her on a very well deserved position and all the best wishes.

    I hope this history-making election of the first female speaker represents more than a token. Unfortunately, the history of accomplishments of Pakistani female reps in high offices and Pakistan’s parliament is not particularly glorious. I hope Dr. Mirza proves to be much more than just a feudal princess winning high office by virtue of her influential family and feudal friends. I hope she brings about real positive changes in the lives of women, particularly rural women whom she represents. If she can do anything at all to uplift them, it will be considered a great accomplishment. I wish her well in this high office.

    Excellent news, so as a great starting point we have a women speaker of the house ( which is good and i seriously mean that) and her husband is a close friend of Mr Zardari ( previously aka Mr 10%)…… I can foresee great things for our country. :))))

    March 19th, 2008 4:54 pm

    I personally don’t care much for how the politics of the country work out , I dont care whether Mushi stays or leaves, Zardari or Nawaz Sharif makes PM or not – - because it doesnt do anything for me, I get up, go to work, earn money , come back home and start all over again the next day – the govt in Isloo has no impact on my life.

    All I want is that Pakistan goes back to degree of normalcy, so that everytime my family steps out of the house, at least I can feel secure that they will be safe. No more bomb blasts, no more ( or at least much much less) robberies , no more (or at least much much less) car snatching.

    Well new speaker is from close friends of Zardari. Here is the news about Zardari network.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/urdu/pakistan/story/2008/03/080319_justicenizam_case_rh.shtml

    This is unfortunate that Mr Zardari seems to be biggest winner from this conflict between civil society and establishment.

    Congratulations to Dr. Mirza on this awesome victory.

    Those who decry political families should be reminded that this is not an uncommon phenomenon. Even Nancy Pelosi entered politics in the shadow of her father. If Hillary can claim to be worthy of leading the free world based on her 8 year stint as a first-lady, why can’t we digest Dr. Mirza’s nomination? She has been elected thrice, and has earned the reputation of a tough lady who withstood state oppression after BB’s govt was ousted in ’96. As Nusrat javed observed she would keep members of the treasury benches on their toes when she would be speaking in the assembly.
    Those who have seen the antics of ‘chaudry’ Ameer hussain should be relieved to see this duo of well educated and refined individuals (Faisal karim kundi is also no ‘chaudry’) represent the new parliament. Mushy worshipers must be perplexed to see how PP has managed to present a soft and liberal face of the new parliament.

  18. Hamid Ch says:
    March 19th, 2008 10:32 pm

    Excellent point Tina – let’s judge the speaker based on what she does for women rather than just getting excited about her gender. Mush has done much more for the womenfolk of Pakistan than Benazir ever wanted to – or could do…

    On a different point – it is sad that the same thugs “aka Zardari and pals” are back in power…

    I hope Kiyani and the generals are keeping a close eye and will have the guts to take over before the looting starts all again…

    BBC reported that Moulana Fazal Ur Rehman actually did not vote because he is against the “Imamat” of a woman!

    Whichever scenario you’d like to believe, poor Moulana sahab comed out like the bad guy! I feel sorry for him.

    SH Kavi, you don’t have to psychoanalyze. It’s simple. We are very very very very very skeptical of Mr 10%. His wife’s two terms were disasters. This guy has less leadership skills and lower ethics. Of course, these are opinions, but are shared by many people. Please don’t try to convince me or Hamid otherwise.

    Fehmida Mirza is not just a pretty face and a symbol of tokenism. She is a physician by training, a politician by profession, has won three successive elections on a general seat (as opposed to reserved seats). She defeated a sitting senator in the 18 February election by over 70,000 votes. Also, in the late 1990s, went through the wringer that opposition politicians are put through by the ruling parties.

    And, finally she was elected a Speaker by over 2/3 majority. Her election as Speaker has done more to improve the image of Pakistan than all the image building missions undertaken by Kashmala Tariqs, Nilofer Bakhtiars, and the various barristers that we have been launching on 5-star tours to Europe and the US in the last 8 years.

    Fehmida Mirza speaks good, looks good and, one hopes, will act good.

  25. Aqil Sajjad says:
    March 21st, 2008 6:33 pm

    This is a positive thing for women and its value is more than symbolic.

    As the speaker, she will be in charge of the house proceedings and she will also be in a position to ensure that women legislatures have adequate time to talk. One has often read/heard the complaint that barring a small number of vocal women like Sherry Rehman, Kashmala Tariq, Tehmina Doltana, the majority of them are not able/allowed to properly participate due to the attitude of their chauvinistic colleagues. She has an excellent opportunity to bring about a positive change in the culture of the assembly. I hope she makes good use of it and wish her all the best.

    Politicians cannot be allowed to simply ruin and bankrupt a country like they had done by 1999.

  27. Gill says:
    March 21st, 2008 10:49 pm

    Tina: Musharraf already got rid of the Hudood Ordinances, what are you on about.

  28. March 22nd, 2008 4:53 am

    I agree with Mr. Aqil. It is a clever move, more significant for the outside world.

    A few questions for Mr. Aamir. Is ruining the country prerogative only of the dictators? Is common man’s condition is better then 1999? Is Pakistan is safer then 1999? Are a few billion dollars in our coffers today, a guarantee of our sovereignty? Who presided over the disaster of 1971?

    Why contempt for politicians only. Perhaps, you should have said ‘no one should be allowed to ruin and bankrupt the country’.

  29. Dr Ghulam Nabi Kazi says:
    March 22nd, 2008 5:50 am

    Everything said and done, this is definitely a great victory for the women and liberal minded people in Pakistan. The issue is really whether it brings about an improvement in the status of women in our society. Behavioral changes can take upto generations. And Gill Sahib, Tina is quite right. The Hudood Ordinance is still very much on our law books, although another law has been brought in to soften its impact on women.

    Statistically, it might be interesting to note that we had the first women representative in the Constituent Assembly (Shaista Ikramullah) in 1947, Ambassador (Raana Liaquat) in 1954, Vice Chancellor (Dr Kaniz Yousuf) in 1972, Minister (Mehmooda Sultana) Education West Pakistan 1962, Deputy Speaker National Assembly (Dr Ashraf Abbasi) in 1972, Governor (Raana Liaquat) in 1973, Prime Minister (Benazir Bhutto) in 1988 and Governor State Bank (Shamshad Akhter) in 2006. And now the Speaker NA in 2008. In between we had the President Women’s Bank. A few years ago we had the first Major General (Dr Shahida Malik) currently Director General Health, perhaps also the first. Miss Gulzar Bano was the first female Federal Secretary (seventies) who had a brief stint as Cabinet Secretary (eighties) also. I think Justice Majida Rizvi was the first female member of the superior judiciary.

    Let us think positively and be more optimistic about the future despite overwhelming odds.

  32. Aamir says:

    mohammed ali javid:

    Pakistan is less safer than 1999, but better off economically because unlike the 90′s we had much better economic management, and unlike the 90′s we now live in the era of suicide terrorism. Any leader will have to combat this menace.

    Mr Gillani selection as PM means Makhdoom Amin Fahim’s years of loyalty and service to Benazir Bhutto has gone down the drain. Pakistanis should enjoy these intrigues, betrayals and politics alongwith slogans of democracy. We shall see after 2 years whether any actual work was done.

  33. Aqil Sajjad says:
    March 22nd, 2008 3:02 pm

    The hudood law debate is one of those very polarizing things.

    On one hand, we have the mullahs who were totally unwilling to even allow a debate on the issue. On the other hand, we regularly hear people complain that the law is still there. One group wanted the law to remain as it was without any amendments, and is unhappy that it has been modified. The other group wants the law to be thrown out completely and sees the amendment as a half-baked measure. What I continue to wonder is how many of the people who take very strong positions on the issue actually know the contents of the hudood ordinance and the amendments to it.

    I was reading everone’s comments and everyone has expressed her huband Dr. Zulifqar Mirza best friend of Asif. But no one has talked about Dr. Zulifquar Mirza sacrification and dedication for the PPP for last 20 years. Serveing side by sid with Bhutto family and Zardari family. Mr and Mrs Mirza both are loyal and royal bood of Pakistan People’s Party. Both are one of the few people who have lived for the people, served to the the poeple. Today Pakistan is proud to see dedicated people stearing country’s direction to the future. May Allah make it easy for them to continue this leadership for next 5 years. We should say enough is enough for short lived government. Let democracy flurish for 5 years without the shadow of Marshal-law. Long live Pakistan, and long live Constitution of Pakistan.

    Dr, Fehmida Mirza is from respectable family and one of well behaved ladies in PPP. She is very rationale and logical in her deeds. her performance as speaker of assembly is commendable. She looks different in attitude than other PPP lady members . We hope she will continue her efforts to run the parlimentary affairs according to book.
