Former cricket star turned politician Imran Khan was tearful and stumbled over his words as he took the oath of office a day after being elected. In his speech the 65-year-old promised to hold ‘corrupt’ politicians to account and has promised move to a small house in Islamabad rather than live in the lavish prime minister’s residence. Khan secured 176 votes at National Assembly, while opponent Shahbaz Sharif secured just 96. Supporters of Khan celebrated across the country when the result was announced (inset).
Mr Sharif and his party’s legislators disrupted Mr Khan’s speech by chanting slogans against him. He responded by saying no one could blackmail him through such protests.
