Member of Senate

He was elected member of the Senate in March 1997 for a period of six years. He was also a member of Senate standing committees on water and power, planning and development and local government and rural development.

Member of Provincial Assembly

He was a member of the provincial assembly in 1988-90 and again from 1993-96. He was deputy parliamentary leader in KPK assembly from 1993-96. He also remained provincial minister for planning and development from 1988 to 1990 and again from 1993 to 1994.

As Chairman

Mr Kamal Marwat was also elected unopposed as chairman town/municipal committees Lakki Marwat during 1982-1987 and 83-85 APP.

Tribal Army

He led his first lashkar, or tribal army, in 1973, shortly after leaving high school with his eye on the civil service. This was more fun. In 2007 came a glorious foray to sack a police station on the Punjabi border and steal its guns. In 2004, most famously, he took 3,000-4,000 heavily armed and bearded men up into the hills to avenge the abduction of two Marwat women by the next-door Bhittani tribe. Around 70 or 80 people were killed, and a village flattened. The $260,000 in compensation his tribe had to pay the Bhittanis was not too bad, he thought, to restore Marwat honour.[2] Tribal Army


Anwar Kamal Khan Marwat was laid to rest in his ancestral graveyard in Lakki city.His body was shifted to his hometown where a large number of people from different walks of life attended funeral prayers offered in the children park in the heart of city.He died due to two sudden heart attacks at Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar.
