Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Friday started preparations for the formation of his party's government in the capital after the PTI won a majority of seats in the National Assembly. Raveesh Kumar, spokesman for India's External Affairs Ministry, said Modi expressed hope that democracy would take deeper root in Pakistan.
Noor Ali, a Pakistani real estate agent, said the new prime minister and his government should prioritise providing new job opportunities for their people and work hard to eliminate poverty - which, as of 2017, was at nearly 30 per cent, according to the country's ministry of planning and reforms.
It turns out that Pakistan's national assembly has reserved seats - 70 of them - in addition to the elected ones.
He also said that a possible venue for the oath-taking ceremony could be D-Chowk - a very important junction in Islamabad, leading up to the Presidency, the Prime Minister's House, the Supreme Court of Pakistan, and the Parliament.
