APS survivor elected president of Oxford Union debating society

Ahmed Nawaz, who survived the deadly 2014 attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar, has been elected president of the Oxford Union debating society.

The 21-year-old student is the second Pakistani after former prime minister Benazir Bhutto to hold this prestigious position.

Nawaz earned a place at the Oxford University in 2020, studying philosophy and theology at Lady Margaret Hall – the same college attended by Nabel Laureate Malala Yousafzai.

His success was hailed in Pakistan, with both prime minister Shehbaz Sharif and president Arif Alvi paying tribute to the young man.
