Khan who was to take oath on 11 August, is now expected to be sworn in on 18 August, according to Pakistani media reports quoting PTI senator Faisal Javed.

Imran Khan will take the oath as Pakistan's Prime Minister on August 18, a senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader said on Friday.

After the oath of MNAs, the elections of the speaker and deputy speaker of the National Assembly will be held on August 15. But it has support of several smaller parties and it is expected to get support of at least 180 lawmakers in the election for speaker, deputy speaker and prime minister. Sadiq then read out the procedure for the election of the speaker and deputy speaker. After the election of the new speaker, the outgoing speaker will give him the oath and hand over charge of the new house.

The newly-elected MNAs include Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan and vice-president Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PLM-N) leader Shehbaz Sharif.

The PTI's tally has reached 158 members after the joining of nine independents and bagging 33 seats reserved for women and minorities.
