So far, we can only say that Pakistan’s 19th Prime Minister will get elected on 17 August 2018. While the new PM will take oath for Prime Minister of Pakistan in the presence of President Mamnoon Hussain.
For the post of Prime Minister, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has nominated their Party’s Chairman Imran Khan and Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) has put Shehbaz Sharif’s name forward for the candidacy in elections of Prime Minister.
If we keep the high majority of seats PTI has won in the National Assembly and its supporters, the new Prime Minister is most likely to be the former Captain Imran Khan. However, as he has not won with outright majority he has had to make some coalitions. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party was able to secure 116 seats out of 269. While the other contender Shahbaz Sharif’s party PML (N) has won 64 seats.
