PTI to announce Imran Khan as PM candidate tomorrow

PTI to announce Imran Khan as PM candidate tomorrow”

The envoys of China, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have all called on the PTI chairman since his party emerged as the victor of the July 25 polls.

Days after Imran Khan's party Pakistan-Tehreek-e-Insaaf bagged maximum seats in the general elections, paving his way for becoming the next Prime Minister of the country, massive turbulence has hit Pakistan politics.

"We wanted that the new prime minister should take his oath on Independence Day so that the new government can start its functioning with full national fervour and commitment to bring progress to the country", he said. In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Mr Khan's party has led the provincial government since 2013.

Pakistan's National Assembly comprises a total of 342 members, of which 272 are directly elected.

Khan' s PTI emerged as the single largest party in the National Assembly with 115 general seats, while with the addition of the general and reserved seats of its allies, the party claimed to have secured at least 172 seats, according to Dawn.

Sources said the party has made a decision to induct Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan in the Cabinet.

The PTI was successful in gaining a majority of 116 seats in the lower house.

So far, the PTI has secured support from Karachi-based MQM, which has demanded two slots in the federal cabinet and some concessions for its jailed workers. The PTI will support BAP in getting its chief minister elected in Balochistan.

The opposition parties have announced that they would field their own candidate in the National Assembly to derail PTI chief Imran Khan's election as PM.

On Friday, the PTI and MQM-P also signed a nine-point memorandum of understanding for the formation of a new government in the centre.
