Imran Khan was elected as the 22nd prime minister of Pakistan during a special session of the Lower House on Friday after the majority of National Assembly members voted for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman.

Following the development, Twitter erupted with congratulatory messages.

Malala Yousufzai was quick to congratulate the new prime minister.

Others, including notables, also congratulated the cricket legend on his victory.

Some, however, congratulated the ruling party with a hint of jealousy.

PTI heavyweight Jehangir Khan Tareen lauded newly elected PM Khan.
