Imran Khan Summoned By Anti-Graft Body In Helicopter Misuse Case


PTI has said it expects Khan to take the oath as prime minister before August 14, Pakistan's independence day.

It has the largest chunk of 15 reserved seats for women in the National Assembly (NA) from Punjab followed by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) with seven seats and Sindh with three.

The National Accountability Bureau summoned Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan and the country's probable prime minister-in-waiting on August 7 in a case pertaining to misuse of provincial government helicopters. A party can only form the government if it manages to clinch 172 seats in total.

The agreement was signed by MQM-P's Faisal Sabzwari and PTI leader Arif Alvi.

All PTI candidates elected to the National Assembly have been directed to be present at Monday's meeting, Chaudhry said.

A European Union election monitoring team in its initial assessment described the election campaign as an unequal playing field, describing a "systematic effort" to undermine Sharif's former ruling party, but said it was up to the people of Pakistan to decide on the vote's legitimacy.

Accompanied by PTI leader Imran Ismail, the MQM delegation left Karachi for Islamabad earlier today to meet PTI chief and PM-in-waiting, Imran Khan at his Bani Gala residence where party convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, who is leading the MQM-P delegation will put forth his party's demands in exchange of joining the government.

They added that Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) will be given a federal ministry for their support in the centre, whereas the PTI will support BAP in getting its chief minister elected in Balochistan.

The PTI is expected to get two ministries in the Balochistan cabinet.

Former cricket star Imran Khan's party, which won Pakistan's July 25 general election, said on Friday it had enough support in the National Assembly to form a government after more than a week of talks with other parties and independent politicians.
