The former cricket star and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf or PTI chief, Imran Khan takes the path as the new Prime Minister of Pakistan. He is now ending off the decades of political dominance by the two dynastic powerhouses. Khan has run off a populist campaign that promised to change the lives of all the people that were done with the injustice and needed to come out of the state of corruption. He promised the people of Pakistan that, "Those people who have looted the country, I promise that they will be brought to justice,"
The top three contemporary cricket players in the history of India were invited by Imran Khan – Sunil Gavaskar, Navjot Singh Sidhu, and Kapil Dev – to his oath ceremony. However, with the current circumstances, only Navjot Singh Sidhu was able to attend the event in Pakistan.

In the last month election, Khan’s party emerged as one of the single largest party of Pakistan that felt short of outright majority. The PTI has scraped off by a simple majority in the Parliament’s confidence vote on Friday when they talk about the strength of support from the small parties. The majority of the mask was around 172 while he managed to secure a total of 176 votes.
Shahbaz Sharif, his rival of the ousted Pakistani Muslim League-Nawaz or PML-N only grabbed 96 votes. The victory of Khan has set a full stop on the rotating leadership of Pakistan between the PML-N and the Bhutto family-led Pakistan people party within the military rule period.
There is no doubt that the former cricket star struggled for over 22 years to turn popular and able to gain the confidence of the electoral. In 1996, he took his retirement from cricket world and launched the party to make the life of people happy. In 1992, he led Pakistani cricket team to win World cup that turned him into the international celebrity.
Even on the death of Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, he showed his grief on such as big loss of India. He even said that the countries – Pakistan and India must honour the veteran leader of BJP legacy by establishing peace between the two nations. However, no statement has been released from India on the statement. He even pressed on the topic earlier also saying he wanted peace between the nation, "You take one step forward, we will take two,"
