Indian envoy Ajay Bisaria meets Imran Khan, gifts him a bat

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

Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party said the entire squad that Khan captained to victory in the 1992 World Cup were invited to the ceremony, as well as Indian cricket greats Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar and Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Similarly, the prime minister will then be elected as leader of the house and voting for him or her is held in open where galleries are designated with alphabets for the name of each candidate and those supporting a certain candidate can enter that gallery. Of these, 272 are filled by direct elections.

And the outgoing speaker will take oath from the newly elected speaker and hand the charge of the house over to him.

On paper, the PTI is expected to carry the day by a thin margin due to open support of several small parties but still a tough competition is expected for the top posts of speaker and prime minister.

"The energy in that place was unbelievable". "There were a lot of roars happening and it was good fun to be out there". Did he worry that a day like this might not ever come again? "I don't know what to say to that".


Nominations for Speaker National Assembly and Governor Sindh have also been announced, but these announcements are least reflective of the party's policy to run affairs of the state.

"Formation of the cabinet and a robust economic team are not less than a challenge for the party that is fully committed to set new precedents of good governance in Pakistan", he told Arab News.

Imran Khan arrives at NA.

The PTI leader added that decision on where Imran Khan would reside after becoming prime minister would be made soon.

Bairstow and Woakes put England on top against India in second Test
Kohli, who did not field when India took the field at the start of play because of a stiff back, was in obvious discomfort. Stuart Broad has now dismissed Ajinkya Rahane five times in Tests, at an average of 11.


The party is still 14 short of simple majority of 172 in the house of 342.

The PTI has already nominated former speaker of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly Asad Qaiser for the office of NA speaker and he would face Syed Khursheed Shah of the PPP, a joint candidate of the 11-party alliance, Pakistan Alliance for Free and Fair Elections.

The alliance is, though, not in a position to win any of the coveted seats in the House because of its low numerical strength.

"We have requested the opposition to [start] a new tradition and work with the government", said Chaudhry.
