PTI announces Imran Khan as its PM candidate
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's parliamentary committee today officially nominated Imran Khan as the party's prime ministerial candidate, according to a media report.
Khan was nominated by PTI's parliamentary committee which met at a hotel here, DAWNNews TV reported.
He left his Banigala residence for the first time after his party's victory in last week's elections. Despite Khan's explicit instructions and refusal to travel with a large protocol, a number of cars and heavy security tagged along with him, the channel added.
While the exact date of the swearing-in of Pakistan's new prime minister has not been announced, reports say it could take place on August 14, the Independence Day of the country.
