LAHORE: Pakistan’s 12th President Mamnoon Hussain has stepped into the country’s Presidency at the age of 73 years, six months and six days. He was born on March 2, 1940, or just 21 days before the historic Pakistan Resolution was passed in Lahore to demand the partition of undivided India. During the last 55 years since the country had its firstever President, Mamnoon Hussain is thus the second oldest Pakistani head of state to be elected or appointed, after the late Ghulam Ishaq Khan (January 20, 1915-October 27, 2006), who had assumed this august office on August 17, 1988 at the age of 73 years, 9 months and 27 days, to be more precise.
