  • Tahreek-e-Insaf leader Arif Alvi said Khan was formally nominated on Monday at a party meeting in Islamabad
  • Khan’s party won most parliament seats in last month’s general elections, but fell short of a majority in 342-seat assembly. It’s expected to form a governing coalition later this month

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was formally nominated on Monday as the party’s official candidate for the post of prime minister.

The resolution nominating him was presented by Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi at the PTI’s first parliamentary committee meeting in Islamabad.

The resolution was accepted by all the party’s leaders, who congratulated Khan on the nomination.

“The issues over why the nation voted us into power need to be addressed as a priority,” he said at the meeting.

“The country is in an economic crisis and we need to steer it out of it. We will approach overseas Pakistanis for repayment of debts.”
