Times are changing, Pakistanis are shook, and we cannot believe our eyes or ears for that matter. Rumor has it, Pakistan might be getting its first FEMALE President. Let me say it again, Pakistan might be electing its FIRST FEMALE President.
It is speculated that Justice (R) Nasira Iqbal might be chosen for the task.
While we’re all aware that she’s Allama Iqbal’s daughter-in-law, she’s also much more than that.
Having majored in Law, and as a legal scholar, she has represented Pakistan on an international level time and again. Nasira Iqbal was also one of the first five women to be appointed to the Lahore High Court. She served there from 1994 to 2002.
She also has various honors to her name, like the Fatima Jinnah Medal for Women’s Rights in 2006, the Woman of the Year Star Award in 2007, and the Wonder Woman Award in 2011.
Regarding the rumors surrounding her being the first female president, there’s been a lot of speculation online, post Naya Pakistan.
So is Pakistan finally going to have a female head of state? Justice (r) Nasira Iqbal's name doing the rounds for the next President of Pakistan. She is daughter-in-law of Allama Muhammad Iqbal. pic.twitter.com/V5elvO0UFV

Honestly, people are DOWN for it
😳 If this happens, it’ll be the best cabinet in the history of #Pakistan: A dynamic PM like @ImranKhanPTI; major parties that have sucked resources out of the country in minority and a female President like Nasira Iqbal. Wow!
This would be the dream team! 🤯 https://t.co/rn7PVu2VIp
