Maryam Nawaz elected punjab chief minister, advocates reconciliation in maiden speech.

In her inaugural address to the Punjab Assembly on Monday, Maryam Nawaz, the Chief Minister-elect of Punjab, emphasized a stance of reconciliation, stating that she harbors no intentions of revenge or political vendetta against any individuals, including her opponents.

Maryam Nawaz secured 220 votes, solidifying her position as the leader of the house in the largest province of Pakistan. Her victory came after a competition with Rana Aftab Khan from the Sunni Ittehad Council, who chose not to participate in the election process, leading their lawmakers to stage a walkout from the assembly.

As Maryam Nawaz takes the helm in Punjab, her commitment to fostering a spirit of unity and inclusivity sets the tone for her leadership. The evolving developments surrounding her appointment will continue to shape the political landscape in the province.
