Amina Mumtaz Rai is a Canadian national. Her parents or grandparents might be of Pakistani origin. But in the case of Arsalan Ghani, he is a Pakistani citizen, born, raised, educated in Pakistan. So I think in this case it is quite fair to call him a first ever Pakistani citizen to be elected as a President.

How sad that Amina is not mentioned as the first Pakistan woman who was elected as GU President in over 800 years!
