PESHAWAR - PTI worker Dr Sumera Shams has became the youngest MPA in history of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Assembly.

Twenty-six-year-old Dr Sumera became the youngest member of the KP Assembly, winning her seat from Lower Dir - a region of the province where women had previously been barred from casting a vote.

Sumera had earlier made history as well, when she became the first female of the area to cast a vote. The MPA is not the only one from her family shattering gender roles, as her sister Noorena is also widely acclaimed for being ranked 127 globally as a Pakistani squash player and international athlete.
