Navjot Singh Sidhu arrives in Pakistan to attend Imran Khan's oath-taking ceremony

  • The National Assembly will meet today at 3:30pm to elect the Leader of the House

Meanwhile, Imran Khan will take oath as Prime Minister at a ceremony at Aiwan-e-Sadr in Islamabad Saturday morning. "These are very special moments", Navjot Singh Sidhu said. It garnered nearly 17 million votes, trouncing the Pakistan Muslim League, the incumbent governing party of jailed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, which finished second with just under 13 million ballots. Among Pakistani cricketers, those on the guest list for the event are greats like Javed Miandad, Wasim Akram, Rameez Raja, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Mushtaq Ahmed, Moin Khan and Aaqib Javed who were a part of the team that won the 1992 World Cup final.

Sources also said that the Navjot Singh Sidhu will meet the PTI Chief Imran Khan tonight.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan is contesting against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif.




For the cricket legend-turned-politician, his party's first place in a national election and becoming country's prime minister, is the culmination of a battle that started more than two decades ago.

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.

Khan's PTI won the July 25 election, but did not have enough seats for an outright majority, forcing its leader to partner with smaller parties and independents in order to form a government. "It will be good for the subcontinent also", Khan said.
