Imran Khan to be confirmed as Pakistan PM

Former cricket star Imran Khan is expected to be elected the next Prime Minister of Pakistan shortly in a vote at the National Assembly. His Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party won the most seats in July's elections - setting up Mr Khan to become PM with the help of small parties, more than two decades after he first entered politics.

He will be sworn in on Saturday (Aug 18).

Mr Khan, 65, will inherit a country with a mounting economic crisis and he has vowed to create a "new Pakistan".

The charismatic sports star, who captained Pakistan to a World Cup victory in 1992, has long shed his celebrity playboy image and now styles himself as a pious, populist, anti-poverty reformer.
