Imran Khan set for victory as Pakistan MPs vote on new PM

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

Wearing a blue suit and a pink turban, Mr Sidhu arrived Lahore via the Wagah border from where he will travel to Islamabad to attend Mr Khan's oath-taking ceremony scheduled for tomorrow.

Pakistani lawmakers will vote for a new prime minister today, with World Cup cricket hero and election victor Imran Khan expected to become the nuclear-armed country's new leader-in-waiting after weeks of working to form a coalition.

Navjot Sidhu said he has brought "a message of love" to Pakistan as a goodwill ambassador of India.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan chaired a meeting on Thursday which was attended by Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Jahangir Tareen and other senior party leaders.

They pose a real danger, Gruener said, because they not only carry the West Nile virus but are fond of feeding on humans. Eliminate standing water sources.

Analysts say, as prime minister, Khan would be tested on several fronts, from dealing with an urgent foreign currency shortage to managing a tense relationship with the United States.

Malala Yousufzai was quick to congratulate the new prime minister. Khan's only challenger could be Shahbaz Sharif, but his Pakistan Muslim League party won only 92 seats in last month's elections.

Kapil Dev was one of the three former Indian cricketers invited to attend Imran Khan's oath taking ceremony, along with Navjot Singh Sidhu and Sunil Gavaskar. A total of 172 votes in the 342-member lower house of Parliament are needed to form a government.

In the July 25 elections, Imran Khan's PTI won 116 of the directly contested 272 seats, just 21 short of the halfway mark.
