    CHITRAL: First time in the history of Pakistan Chitral District’s minority tribe Kalash has a representation in the Provincial Assembly.

    Wazir Zada a member of the Kalash tribe will hold a seat in the provincial assembly of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK).

    Wazir Zada was contesting the elections as a Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf (PTI) candidate.

    In last year’s census, Peshawar High Court ordered that Kalaash Tribe’s religion should also be listed in the form.

    According to unofficial results, PTI has won 116 of NA seats and it has also been able to achieve the highest number of seats in KPK.

    Good news.

    I have noticed in this election coverage, every single media outlet using the narrow minded and pointless statements about "X event happening for the first time in Pakistan's history" or "first time in 70 years". As to single Pakistan out for never having had Kalash representation in the parliament before.
    Another gem was a headline about women in some remote village voting for the first time since 1947.

    So are the media experts implying that during British colonial rule, Kalash had representation in parliaments or tribal women were somehow voting in elections? Really have to question these idiotic statements from these bright journalists.

    The always seem to excuse the backwardness of the British era as to protect those glorious days.
