Following a thumping victory in last week’s general elections, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and Prime Minister-in-waiting Imran Khan will take oath at President House (Aiwan-e-Sadr), party spokesperson Naeemul Haq said Wednesday.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said that leaders of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) countries are expected to attend the oath-taking ceremony.

The PTI spokesperson said that Pakistan’s economy is facing severe economic crisis as the masses weren’t provided their due rights for the last 70 years.

Haq said that the PTI-led government will provide relief to the general public soon after taking office, adding that 10 million jobs will be provided in its five year tenure.
