Imran Khan leads from the front
ISLAMABAD - After claiming victory in the elections, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan is standing by his words of eliminating VIP culture from the country.
Imran Khan took an unprecedented decision, which can be termed as a promising one, to not avail any protocol after being elected as the new prime minister of Pakistan.
“I will not take any protocols and I will not let anyone else have it either,” he said, while directing all of in-waiting federal and provincial ministers to take minimum protocol.
PTI chairman assured that all ministers will abide by his SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) of taking protocols.
Imran has preferred to reside at Speaker’s house, refusing the opportunity of living in the prime minister house following his oath taking as the new premier of Pakistan.
“I am the custodian of public’s taxes,” cricketer-turned-politician stated. According to sources at Bani Gala, PTI has decided that Imran Khan will take oath as PM in a simple ceremony at President House.
Imran Khan, whose party emerged as the single largest party in national assembly after the July 25 general election in the country, now claims it has support of enough number of MNAs to form government in center, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.
