The newly elected members of the national and provincial assemblies took oath on Monday, setting the stage for the country’s second democratic transition of power.
Following the oath-taking ceremonies in the National Assembly and provincial assemblies of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and Sindh, Twitter reacted to Pakistan's continued progress down the path of democracy.
The dream Khan sb saw 22 years ago, is about to become a reality, Alhamdulillah. Countless obstacles came in his way but nothing could deter him from his pursuit for Naya Pakistan. He strongly held onto his faith & finally made the destination. A true inspiration for all of us 😊— Jahangir Khan Tareen (@JahangirKTareen) August 13, 2018
Best of luck to all the parliamentarians who are in the national assembly. May you fulfill your oaths & help Pakistan be a better place. May you have the sense & the conscience to serve your country above personal agendas, hatred and bigotry. #nationalassembly— Mahwash Ajaz (@mahwashajaz_) August 13, 2018
