Pakistani MPs elect World Cup cricket hero Imran Khan as next PM

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

India had responded to Khan's statements by saying, "We hope that the new Pakistan government will work constructively to build a safe, stable, secure and developed South Asia free of terror and violence".

A simple majority in the vote, due to take place in the lower house of parliament on Friday afternoon, will bring Khan one step closer to power ahead of a swearing-in ceremony set for Saturday.

The young Bhutto carrying on the legacy of his Mother nad Grand Father, delivered a maiden speech which enthralled the social media users in contrast with the newly elected PM Imran Khan's Dharna days' container style offensive, rude and obnoxious speech which was highly condemned and is being termed a disappointing and hopeless oration.

Paying his condolences, Imran Khan said that Vajpayee's death has created a void and his effort will always be remembered.

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.

"Legislative business will be hard for him", said Raza Ahmad Rumi, editor of the Daily Times newspaper. In another clip, one news presenter points out how Khan contradicts himself while making political statements - something that the United States president has also been accused of time and again.

Kyle Walker says Manchester City will cope without Kevin De Bruyne
According to the Daily Mirror , De Bruyne sustained a knee injury on Wednesday in training during an outdoor session. It is worth noting, however, that he will likely miss at least two of City's Champions League group matches.

Opposition parties allege election rigging and say Khan's path to power was made easier by the tacit support of the powerful military, which has ruled Pakistan for almost half its history. The army and Khan have denied the claims.

"I am here after 22 years of struggle".

Murtaza Abbasi, a PML-N lawmaker, said in parliament Khan was "brought here by aliens", a euphemism for the military.

"The whole nation has rejected this election", said Shehbaz Sharif, demanding an investigation of electoral irregularities. "I got here on my own".

Khan's party say they have enough support in the National Assembly from minor parties to form a governing coalition, which will lead the country for the next five years.
