Malala willing to work with Imran to improve girls’ education in Pakistan

LAHORE: Survivor of Taliban attack in Swat and youngest Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai has expressed willingness to work with the Imran Khan-led Pakistan government to improve girls’ education in the country.

In the congratulatory message to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on becoming the 22nd prime minister of Pakistan, Malala took to twitter and expressed hope that Imran’s swearing in as the new chief executive of the country would usher in an era of peace and prosperity and a focus on education of children in Pakistan.

“With PTI’s focus on education in its first 100-day plan, I look forward to Prime Minister Imran Khan working with the federal, provincial and legislative governments and civil society of Pakistan in his efforts to get the 13 million out-of-school Pakistani girls into classrooms to get free, safe and quality education,” she said.

“My hope is that Pakistan will someday be known as a global leader in education, a country where all children receive the schooling they need to pursue their dreams and contribute to their nation, the Nobel laureate,” said, and added, “I believe this can begin with this government and I hope to work with Prime Minister Imran Khan toward this noble goal.”
