Navjot Singh Sidhu Arrived in Pakistan for Imran’s oath-taking ceremony

PTI chief Imran Khan has directed to stage the oath-taking event in simple manner

His rival Sharif, younger brother of imprisoned ex-Premier Nawaz Sharif and president of Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) received 96 votes.

Votes secured by Imran Khan are the same as were polled by the party candidate for election of the Speaker. His party PTI swept the General Elections 2018 winning majority of NA seats.

In a step towards the realisation of the much-hyped 100-day plan after holding the reins of the government, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has chose to reshuffle top bureaucracy at both federal and provincial levels, local media reported.

Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan Friday defeated Shahbaz Sharif to become Pakistan's next prime minister after the grand opposition alliance fell apart over the PML-N chief's nomination for the top post.

His mandate as leader will last five years.

Khan needed a simple majority of 172 to take power.

Lara Trump: Omarosa Wasted 'Incredible Opportunity' by Bashing Pres
"She never pulled me aside, never said to me, 'Hey, listen, I heard the president say this and I don't know what to do with it'". Signers also agree to participate in binding arbitration at Trump's discretion if a dispute arises over the agreement.

Rival parties have alleged "blatant" vote-rigging.

Khan, a firebrand nationalist, has promised to create millions of jobs and build world-class hospitals and school systems in the mainly-Muslim country of 208 million people. The army and Khan's PTI deny any collusion.

It is expected to form a coalition government in powerful Punjab province, formerly a PML-N stronghold, in coming days. The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) came in third with 54 seats.

The Chinese ambassador said Mr Khan time and again had said that Pakistan is eager to learn from China's experience in governance, including anti-corruption, poverty alleviation, environmental protection and urbanization.

He will face myriad challenges including militant extremism, water shortages, and a booming population negating growth in the developing country, among others.

Known in Pakistan as "Taliban Khan" for his calls to hold talks with insurgents, he increasingly catered to religious hardliners during the campaign, spurring fears his leadership could embolden extremists.
