Sunil Gavaskar to skip Imran Khan's oath-taking ceremony

"We hope that Pakistan would work for a safe, secure, stable and prosperous region, free from terror and violence", the Prime Minister responded when asked if India is ready to hold talks with Pakistan.

Outgoing NA Speaker Ayaz Sadiq administered the oath to the MNAs-elect in the 342-member house, in what is a part of only the second democratic transition in the country's history.

Strict security measures have been taken to avoid any untoward incident during the proceedings and irrelevant persons have been barred from entering the house.

"For this, we have taken several well-known initiatives from the beginning of our term". Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has also become a legislator for the first time.

The lawmakers will not be allowed to deliver a speech on the floor of the house in the first session and the National Assembly would meet again on Wednesday for the election of Speaker and Deputy Speaker.

The invite sent from PTI chairman's secretariat said: "It's indeed a great pleasure to have invited you for the oath-taking ceremony of PTI's Chairman Imran Khan as the Prime Minister of Pakistan".

The PML-N has a final tally of 82 seats after the addition of 18 reserved seats including 16 for women and two for non-Muslims and PPP has 53 with addition of 11 reserved seats, nine for women and two for non-Muslims.

All the seven allied parties of the PTI collectively have 27 seats in the National Assembly, enough to support the ruling coalition to run its day-to-day functions smoothly, but only if they all refrain from creating troubles for the government.

The PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif has been named as the opposition's candidate for the office of the prime minister.
