Munazza Malik

 

Politics Group member, Munazza Malik, was elected unopposed as a Douzenier for St Peter Port in a by-election prompted by the retirement of Jenny Tasker.

Here’s her speech at the parish meeting held on 8 June 2024, introducing herself to parishioners.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Respected colleagues, parishioners, and friends,

I am deeply honored and grateful to accept the role of Douzenier for the Parish of St. Peter Port.

Your trust and support mean a lot to me, and I am eager to serve this vibrant community with dedication and integrity.

A bit about my background: I was born and raised in Pakistan and qualified as a pharmacist in the late 90s.

My early career in oncology taught me the importance of precision and empathy.

After moving to the UK in 2005, I gained extensive experience in healthcare management, governance, and operations, managing multiple sites for a large national pharmacy chain. I volunteered in my local community to patrol the area working in liaison with local police

In 2019, I moved to Guernsey as a Superintendent pharmacist for a corporate pharmacy, where I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with our community. I was blown away by the kindness and friendliness of Guernsey people.

I would like to give back to the community by helping to make strategic decisions, which involves understanding community needs, engaging stakeholders, developing strategic plans, implementing initiatives, monitoring and evaluating progress, fostering collaboration, communicating effectively, and promoting sustainability.

Our parish is a place of rich history and diverse culture.

As a Douzenier, I am committed to preserving our heritage while embracing future opportunities.

My priorities will focus on enhancing community engagement, improving local services, and ensuring our parish remains safe, welcoming, and prosperous.

Thank you once again for your trust and support. I look forward to serving you and working with you towards a bright and thriving future for St. Peter Port.

Thank you.
