Pakistani politician and tribal leader
A lawyer and first chairman of the Senate of Pakistan, Anwar Kamal Khan Marwat was a Pakistani politician, tribal leader and senior statesman.
He was elected member of the Senate in March 1997 for a period of six years. He was also a member of Senate standing committees on water and power, planning and development and local government and rural development.
He was a member of the provincial assembly in 1988-90 and again from 1993-96. He was deputy parliamentary leader in KP assembly from 1993-96. He also remained provincial minister for planning and development from 1988 to 1990 and again from 1993 to 1994.
With a military air and a carefully combed, spear-tipped moustache on his fleshy face, Anwar Kamal was the epitome of the swashbuckling Frontier man. He was comfortable both in the halls of parliament in Islamabad where he served on the power and rural-development committees, and at home in Lakki Marwat, Khyber-Pakhtunkwa province.
Anwar Kamal Khan was born at Bannu. His early education was at Convent School Peshawar. He joined FC College Lahore for intermediate studies but later migrated to Degree College D.I. Khan wherefrom he got a degree in arts.
