RESUME AND PARLIAMENTARY CAREER OF SENATOR WAQAR AHMED KHAN. His objectives are: to boost national development through prioritization of core multi-sectoral infrastructure. Senator Waqar Ahmed Khan was born on July 20, 1963 in Dera Ismail Khan (North West Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan). He was elected to the Senate of Pakistan for the first time in 1994 as the youngest ever member of the Upper House of Pakistan's Parliament for a six years term. He won by an over helming majority, securing the largest number of electoral votes from the provincial assembly of NWFP.

He is son of Senator Gulzar Ahmed Khan, an eminent political personality of Pakistan. The Senior Senator Gulzar Ahmed Khan held key Federal Ministries in the Government of Pakistan and remained special assistant for provincial coordination to the Prime Minister of Pakistan. The family has a historic parliamentary representation in the Upper House as Senator Waqar's father Gulzar Ahmed Khan and his uncle Mukhtar Ahmed Khan were elected to the Upper House where as his mother Mrs. Razia Sultana served as a member of the Lower House (National Assembly) of Pakistan.

The family created history when Senator Gulzar Ahmed Khan (father) and Senator Waqar Ahmed Khan (son) became members of the Senate simultaneously. Both father and the son returned to the Upper House of the Parliament as Senators from the North West Frontier Province again in 2003 by securing the largest number of votes from the provincial assembly of their home province, NWFP. It is unique example in the history of Pakistan that Ammar Khan, younger brother of Senator Waqar Ahmed Khan, has now been elected as a Senator from NWFP in March 2006 to join his father and brother in the Upper House of the Parliament. In 2005, Senator Waqar's uncle and former Senator Mukhtar Ahmed Khan, was elected as District Nazim of strategically located Dera Ismail Khan.

Senator Waqar Ahmed Khan went to the prestigious Aitchison College for his initial studies where he rose to the college athletic team captain and won the many laurels for his institution at the inter college, provincial as well as national level competitions. Later, he proceeded to University of Miami from where he attained advance studies in Business Administration and Comparative Economic Systems, with specialization in business management organization. Senator Waqar has a wide ranging experience and expertise on issues that are vital for Pakistan's future, and, indeed that of the region. These include FATA and its political and economic challenges, as well as Energy and its different dimensions. Energy today drives regional economic cooperation, with Pakistan as the pivotal player.

Senator Waqar Ahmed Khan has tremendous interaction with multi-national companies as well as Development Financial Institutions (DFIs). He also has a vast experience in international and national political and economic strategic affairs. Senator Waqar Ahmed Khan got married in 1994 and is blessed with a daughter and two sons. He has a firm belief in strong family values.
