PM-in-waiting quizzed by Pakistan anti-graft body

Khan's Tahreek-e-Insaf party won the most parliament seats in last month's general elections - 115 - but fell short of a majority in the 342-seat assembly, requiring it to form a coalition.

Imran said the nation had defeated political status-quo by rejecting two-party system prevailing since the 1970s.

This comes after Khan was officially nominated as the next Prime Minister candidate of the country in the party's parliamentary meeting.

Earlier, PTI formally nominated party's supremo Imran Khan as their candidate for prime minister s slot. The party will have to seek formal support from smaller parties or independents to get elected the prime minister of its choice.

The prime minister-in-waiting said that he would take decision on merit to benefit people.

Imran Khan thanked the members for showing their trust in him.

The PTI is ahead of its rivals with 116 seats in the national assembly, having won 16.86 million votes in the July 25 elections, according to the Election Commission of Pakistan. The PPP would contest for the seat of Speaker against the nominee of PTI in the National Assembly.

Despite Khan's explicit instructions and refusal to travel with an extended protocol, a number of cars and heavy security tagged along with him. The new dates for by-elections on those seats will be held within 60 days after newly-elected members of the national and provincial assemblies take the oath.

The alliance include Pakistan Muslim-Nawaz, Pakistan People's Party, Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, Awami National Party, Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party, National Party Balochistan, Qaumi Watan Party and Pak Sarzameen Party. A party can only form the government if it manages to clinch 172 seats in total.
