Imran Khan will take the oath as Pakistan’s Prime Minister on August 18, a senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader said on Friday.
Senator Faisal Javed took to his Twitter handle to convey the news, “Imran Khan to take oath as Prime Minister of Islamic Republic of Pakistan on the 18th Aug 2018 inshALLAH (if God wills)”, Javed wrote.
He also tweeted that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party led by Khan has invited Indian cricketers Kapil Dev, Navjot Singh Sidhu and Sunil Gavaskar to attend the oath taking ceremony of the cricketer-turned-politician.
The PTI’s parliamentary committee on Monday officially named party chairman Khan as their parliamentary leader and nominee for the next prime minister of Pakistan.
The PTI, which secured 116 general seats in the National Assembly in the July 25 polls is the largest party in the lower house of parliament.
