Pakistan PM-elect Imran Khan invites Navjot Singh Sidhu for swearing

Imran Khan's speech was very nice, I wish him all the best: Kangana Ranaut

Earlier, the maiden session started with the National Anthem, followed by recitation from the Holy Quran.

The session will be attended by the newly-elected members of the National Assembly, who will be taking oath as Member National Assembly (MNA).

The NA speaker will be elected first after which he will conduct the election of the deputy speaker.

Khan brings charisma and worldwide name recognition, but running the country will take considerable statecraft from his relatively inexperienced party.

The deadline for the submission of the nomination papers for prime minister office is 2:00 pm on August 16 as the election of the PM will be held the next day (August 17).

After the oath-taking, the ruling and opposition parties will be asked to nominate candidates for Speaker and Deputy Speaker.

The 25 July Pakistan elections, which has seen cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) emerging as the single largest party with 116 seats, has however ignited hopes of a thaw in India-Pakistan ties.

Former cricketer and Punjab local bodies minister Navjot Sidhu formally got an invite for the swearing-in ceremony of Pakistan's Tehereek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan as Prime Minister.

"In a historic moment, Imran Khan will take the oath (as prime minister) on August 18", Faisal Javed Khan, a PTI senator and Khan's close aide, said in televised comments in Islamabad.

The PTI has nominated Khan for the top post and he is scheduled to take oath on August 18 at the President House.
