The number of women who contested the election from Balochistan was very few and the number who actually won was non-existent. Just one female candidate won from Balochistan – Zubaida Jalal.
Jalal contested and won the NA-271 Kech and Turbat seat on the Balochistan Awami Party’s ticket.
She beat BNP-Awami’s Syed Ahsan Shah by getting 32,886 votes to his 20,583.
Jalal served as the federal education minister in then prime minister Shaukat Aziz’s cabinet.
