Imran Khan Wishes To Hold PM Oath taking Ceremony at a Public Place


PTI Chairman Imran Khan has expressed desire to take oath as Prime Minister at a public place.

PTI leaders and Imran Khan is considering the idea to hold oath taking ceremony at a public place.

The autonomy to conduct Prime Minister Oath taking ceremony at a public place is conditioned with security clearance.

According to sources, D-Chowk and Parade Ground are among the suggested venues for the ceremony.

Earlier, PTI chief Imran Khan had already announced to take oath for the post of Prime Minister on August 11, 2018.

Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf emerged as a largest political party in General Elections Results 2018, having public mandate. They have won 115 NA seats of the 270 National Assembly seats.

PTI is however short of the 137 seats needed for simple majority and is trying to persuade independent candidates to join the party.

On the other hand, more than a dozen rival political parties calling themselves the All Parties Conference announced to protest over the election results.

However, the APC group remained divided with some parties pledging to boycott joining the National Assembly and others calling for a new vote.

The PML-N announced its support for the group but stopped short of saying it would boycott the new parliament.

And the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), which was notably absent from the APC, said in a separate announcement that it rejected the results, but vowed to try to convince the other parties to participate in the parliamentary process.

Imran Khan’s victory represents an end to decades of rotating leadership between the Sharif family’s PML-N and the Bhutto’s PPP.

PTI chief Imran Khan will face countless challenges, including militancy, an economic crisis with speculation that Pakistan will have to seek a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and water shortages.
