Newly elected members of the National Assembly will decide today whether they would elect Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairperson Imran Khan or Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif as the 22nd prime minister of Pakistan.
 
The PTI, which emerged as the leading party in the July 25 general elections, appears to be in a comfortable position to elect its chairman as the next prime minister.
 
A simple majority of votes from the total strength of the house is required for the election of prime minister.
 
After distribution of reserved seats for women and minorities, the PTI remains the majority party in the National Assembly with 151 seats.
 
The party commands the support of at least 175 lawmakers, more than 50% of the total 330 MNAs sworn in, and is expected to dominate the election if its lawmakers and all its allied parties vote for Imran Khan.
