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

After the election of the Speaker and deputy speaker, nominations will be called for the Prime Minister.

Modi had met the then Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif several times and also visited Pakistan in a surprise stopover on his way back from an official trip to Russian Federation in December 2015.

PTI has already sent out official invitations to close friends of Imran Khan including Indian cricketing legends Kapil Dev, Navjot Singh Sidhu and Sunil Gavaskar to attend the oath-taking ceremony.

Party sources said that the list of the Cabinet has not been finalised but there is a general consensus that Shah Mahmood Qureshi will be the new Foreign Minister and Pervez Khattak the new Interior Minister. The PTI on Monday formally announced Khan as the prime ministerial candidate.

44 people shot, 5 fatally, in Chicago on Sunday
Police are blaming it mostly on gangs, saying they use large summer crowds as cover to shoot indiscriminately. Chicago ended 2017 with 650 homicides, down from 771 the year before.

Khan has also been getting facilitation meetings and congratulatory appreciations from representatives of various countries including India.

It is not clear if they will attend the ceremony scheduled to take place on 18 August in the President House. Outgoing National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq administered the oath to the members of Pakistan's 15th National Assembly.

The PTI has the support of smaller parties including Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) with seven seats, Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) five, Balochistan National Party (BNP) four, Pakistan Muslim League (PML) three, Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) three, Awami Muslim League and Jamori Watan Party one seat each.

The formerly governing PML-N, which emerged as the largest party in Punjab, couldn't get the support of required number of members to form government in the country's largest and politically most important province as it could win over a single independent. Reportedly, several leaders are in the running for the coveted seat, which is second only to the premier in importance.
