As the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) strives to form government, party chief Imran Khan’s spokesperson Naeemul Haque on Saturday said the putative prime minister would prefer a public oath-taking ceremony.
“IK would prefer a People’s ceremony of oath taking where thousands can watch him take the oath as PM of Pakistan. Perhaps D Chowk area may be the right place to do it. Let’s hope so. Will keep on updating on this.”
The post invited a variety of reactions. While many could barely contain their excitement, other twitterati were not so kind.
The PTI emerged as the single-largest party in the recently-concluded election results. According to preliminary Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) results, the party secured 115 National Assembly seats.
