After the groundbreaking entry of Sobia Khan into the political arena, another prominent transgender figure, Saima Shaukat, has stepped into the spotlight by submitting her nomination papers for Haripur Constituency PK 46. Holding the position of President in the transgender association for the same constituency, Saima Shaukat brings a wealth of experience, having previously won councilor elections twice. Determined to contribute to the development of her constituency and address the challenges faced by its residents, Saima Shaukat is now seeking election to the provincial assembly. This follows the independent candidacy of Sobia Khan in PK-81, marking a significant moment for transgender representation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Expressing her aspirations, Sobia Khan emphasizes her commitment to advocating for the rights of the transgender community. She underscores the prevalent lack of attention and voice for the eunuch community, and her goal is to use her platform to effect positive change.
