Imran Khan offers prayers of gratitude after being elected PM

Navjot Singh Sidhu Arrives For Imran Khan's Oath Taking Ceremony In Pak Pakistani MPs elect Imran Khan as prime minister for the next five years

Unfortunately, the jack pot slipped in the bag of inexperienced newest and young parliamentarian Bilawal Bhutto rather being bagged by the the iconic celebrity politician, experienced parliamentarian and a recently elected House of Leader and the Prime Minister elected Imran Khan aka Kaptaan Khan.

Pakistan's parliament has elected Khan to lead the government.

In a televised speech shortly after the July 25 elections, Imran Khan vowed to work for the poorest of poor and called for dialogue with India.

Paying his condolences, Imran Khan said that Vajpayee's death has created a void and his effort will always be remembered. Vajpayee was received at Wagah by then Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Shari.

Rival parties have alleged "blatant" vote-rigging.

No Pakistani premier has ever completed a five-year term in office, including Sharif, whose most recent stint in power was ended by the Supreme Court last year.

Rain fury in Kerala: UAE airlines suspend flights to Kochi
Seven people were killed in a massive landslide in Palakkad this morning, taking the death toll in Kerala's worst natural to 87. Kochi Metro shut down its operations and the already-shut Kochi airport had to break open compound walls to let out water.

Khan's victory represents an end to decades of rotating leadership between the PML-N and the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), punctuated by periods of military rule.

Khan, a firebrand nationalist, has promised to create millions of jobs and build world-class hospitals and school systems in the mainly-Muslim country of 208 million people.

It is expected to form a coalition government in powerful Punjab province, formerly a PML-N stronghold, in coming days.

But Khan will face a battle to push through his ambitious reforms and legislative agenda due to the thin majority in the National Assembly.

He will face myriad challenges including militant extremism, water shortages, and a booming population negating growth in the developing country, among others.
