Pam Gosal has created history by becoming the first Indian woman to be elected to Scottish parliament. Gosal was elected on a Conservative Party ticket from West Scotland.

In a tweet, Gosal said: “It’s a privilege to be the first female Member of Scotland Parliament from an Indian background. Thank you everyone who’s supported me. Can’t wait to get to work for the people of West Scotland”.

Gosal helped her family business before working in the local government prior to being elected to Scottish parliament.

She was born in Glasgow and spent most of her life in Scotland. She holds a BA degree, an MBA in Consumer Law and is currently pursuing a PhD. She has always been supportive of women and has received the 2015 Women Leader Business Award and the 2018 Public Service Award. She is the Deputy Chairperson of the Conservative Women’s Organisation of Scotland.

She is also the director of the Conservative Friends of India Scotland. The organisation seeks to build strong ties between the Conservative Party and the British Indian community in Scotland. Gosal expressed confidence of making new strides in her political career as a Scottish Conservative and Unionist advocate for British, Scottish and BAM women.
