83 Muslim candidates, including Pakistanis, have been successful in the mid-term elections in America.

According to a foreign news agency, Salman Bhojani and Sulaiman Lalani of Pakistani origin have contested on the ticket of the ruling party from Texas.

Similarly, 21-year-old Alisha Khan, who moved from Karachi to America, has become the youngest candidate to be elected to the Legislative Assembly of New Jersey.

According to the report, there is a strong possibility that the first Muslim candidate, Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is a well-known TV anchor and is of Turkish origin, will be elected as a senator for the first time in the mid-term elections in the United States.

Apart from this, Rashida Talib from Michigan and Ilhan Omar from Minnesota have also been elected for the third time, while Andre Carson, a Muslim Democrat from the state of Indiana, has won the honor of being elected to Congress for a record seventh time.

The report states that two Muslim women, Nabila Islam and Rawa Roman, have also been successful in the Georgia state legislative assembly along with Sheikh Rehman Legislature.

Medina Wilson-Anton from Delaware State, Senator Saud Anwar of Pakistani origin from Colorado State and State Representative Iman Joda have also been re-elected.

The first Muslim congressman, Keith Ellison, has been re-elected as Minnesota’s attorney general this year as well.

According to reports, 150 Muslim candidates participated in the US mid-term elections this time, including 51 Muslim candidates for the legislative assembly of 23 states.

There are reports that out of 150 Muslim candidates, 83 candidates have been successful out of which 45 candidates have been elected to the Legislative Assemblies while 38 have been successful to local governments.

It should be noted that even after four days of the mid-term elections in America, no party has been able to gain control over the Congress.

There are reports that run-off elections will be held on December 6 in the three US states of Arizona, Nevada and Georgia, while the control of the Senate also depends on these states.

Republicans hold a majority in the House of Representatives with 213 of the 435 seats, but their numbers are falling short of expectations, with Democrats holding 206 seats.

Keep in mind that any party needs 218 seats to get a majority in the House of Representatives.
