Pakistan’s new prime minister: Khan he do it?

August 1, 2018


Pakistan’s July 25 election, which brought the former cricket star Imran Khan into power as prime minister, was a landmark event.

It marked the second consecutive peaceful handover of power from one democratically elected government to another in a country where coups are commonplace.

Despite allegations that the Pakistani armed forces rigged the election to benefit Khan, most opposition parties have now accepted his win.

The 66-year-old, one-time world-famous athlete founded his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf political party in 1996 after his retirement from cricket. Khan will take power in mid-August after two decades as a parliamentarian and university chancellor with the highest political ambitions.
