Elahi is being nominated by the PTI as the speaker of the Punjab Assembly.

"In a historic moment, Imran Khan will take the oath (as prime minister) on August 18", Faisal Javed Khan, a PTI senator and Khan's close aide, said in televised comments in Islamabad.

Modi had met the then Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif several times and also visited Pakistan in a surprise stopover on his way back from an official trip to Russian Federation in December 2015.

The PTI's parliamentary committee on Monday officially named party chairman Khan as their parliamentary leader and nominee for the next prime minister of Pakistan.

Party sources said that the list of the Cabinet has not been finalised but there is a general consensus that Shah Mahmood Qureshi will be the new Foreign Minister and Pervez Khattak the new Interior Minister.

As PTI ally Pervez Elahi of Pakistan Muslim League will also vacate his two National Assembly seats after deciding to sit in the Punjab Assembly, while elections were not held on two seats and result of one seat has been delayed due to litigation, the final strength of the house will further come down to 331.

In a statement on Saturday Sidhu said he had informed the Union Home Ministry and Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh's office regarding his intention to attend Khan's oath taking ceremony on August 18 in Islamabad.

Khan has also been getting facilitation meetings and congratulatory appreciations from representatives of various countries including India. It means PTI still needs support of 14 members of smaller parties and joint Opposition needs 16.

PTI emerged victorious in the July 25 elections, the country's second-ever democratic transition of power, but fell short of an outright majority.
