Nazish Rahmani

Biography

Although trained in business and economics, Nazish Rahmani discovered her true calling when she was selected for the prestigious Young Parliamentary Associate program. The highly selective initiative taps into the potential of Pakistan’s many young graduates by providing a cadre of junior experts to Parliamentary Committees, Secretariats, and the Pakistan Institute of Parliamentary Services.  She was further selected by opposition leader Syed Khurshid Ahmed Shah to serve in his office within the National Assembly of Pakistan. Today her exposure ranges from whistle blowing on malpractices to dynamics of politics. She has contributed to drafting recommendations for Pakistan’s national security policy and amendments for the 2014-15 finance bill along with the privatization case hearing of the public accounts committee. Nazish also initiated discussions in the House on issues concerning human rights, Millennium Development Goals, energy, security, water contamination, polio eradication, and taxes, among others. She believes that poor policies and the inability to implement them are an impediment to welfare. She therefore aspires to be a public policy expert and bring substantive change in society.
