Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan will take oath as the prime minister on August 18, party leaders confirmed Friday.

PTI chairman Imran Khan, whose party secured 116 general seats in the National Assembly in the July 25 polls, is set to become the 19th prime minister of Pakistan.

Speaking to media here, PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry said that newly-elected members of the National Assembly would take oath at 10am on August 13, which would be followed by the election for speaker and deputy speaker of the assembly through secret balloting.

"The procedure takes two to three days, hence it has been decided that the oath-taking would take place on August 18," he announced, adding that preparations for the ceremony would kick off from Saturday.
