Imran Khan calls up Navjot Sidhu, invites him to swearing-in ceremony on Aug 18

"I really hope and appeal that we have a really attractive relationship henceforth". We have also taken various initiatives in this regard.

According to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), nine out of 13 independent candidates allied themselves with the Imran Khan-led party, increasing its tally of general seats to 125.

"In a historic moment, Imran Khan will take the oath (as prime minister) on Aug 18", Faisal Javed Khan, a PTI senator and Khan's close aide, said in televised comments in Islamabad.

Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu will attend the swearing-in ceremony of Pakistan Prime Minister-designate Imran Khan on August 18.

Soon after emerging victorious in the elections, Khan in his first speech said he wanted to have good relations with India and work to resolve all outstanding issues through dialogue. "Right now, it is one-sided where India is constantly just blaming us".
