Navjot Singh Sidhu Arrives in Pakistan for Imran's Oath-taking Ceremony

LAHORE: Former Indian cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu arrived in Pakistan to attend the oath-taking ceremony of prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan.

Sidhu arrived in Lahore via Wagah border and will now travel to Islamabad for the oath-taking ceremony scheduled for August 18.

According to sources, the former cricketer will meet the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief tonight.

Imran, a former Pakistan Test captain who founded PTI in 1996, is expected to be sworn in as prime minister on Saturday after his party swept the July 25 general elections.

Earlier this week, former Indian captain Kapil Dev said he will not be attending the oath-taking ceremony, citing ‘personal reasons’.

The newly-elected members of the National Assembly will vote for the country's next prime minister today. Imran Khan is contesting against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz president Shehbaz Sharif, but the race is believed to have been won by the PTI nominee already due to a fallout among opposition parties.
