Punjab Confirms Navjot Singh Sidhu's Invite For Imran Khan's Swearing

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

Sadiq then read out the procedure for the election of the speaker and deputy speaker.

After the oath of MNAs, the elections of the speaker and deputy speaker of the National Assembly will be held on August 15.

The NA speaker will be elected first after which he will conduct the election of the deputy speaker.

Nominations for Speaker National Assembly and Governor Sindh have also been announced, but these announcements are least reflective of the party's policy to run affairs of the state.

"The chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Imran Khan, who is going to be sworn in as the Prime Minister of Pakistan, has sent invitation to former cricketer and Cabinet Minister, Punjab, Navjot Singh Sidhu to his swearing-in ceremony".

PM-in-waiting Imran Khan, PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, Shireen Mazari, Asad Umer, Pervez Khattak, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Marriyum Aurangzeb, Munazza Hassan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi among others are attending the first session of the revamped House.

PTI maintains that even though close friends from India and the notables from the 1992 World Cup cricket team are invited to the oath taking ceremony on August 18, the ceremony will be a simple one.

The PTI leader added that decision on where Imran Khan would reside after becoming prime minister would be made soon.

According to Punjab's Information and Public Relations Department, Khan also thanked Sidhu for praising him in a press conference on August 2.

And the outgoing speaker will take oath from the newly elected speaker and hand the charge of the house over to him.

The alliance is, though, not in a position to win any of the coveted seats in the House because of its low numerical strength. These parties include Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) with seven seats, Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) with five, Balochistan National Party (BNP) with four, Pakistan Muslim League (PML) with three, Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) with three, and Awami Muslim League and Jamori Watan Party have one each.
