As the National Assembly session began, the members first stood for the country's national anthem, following which they took the oath in unison.

There are reports that President Hussain has cancelled his three-day trip to Ireland to administer the oath to the new prime minister.

Elections for Speaker and Deputy Speaker of National Assembly will be held on August 15 (Wednesday).

What will happen in the maiden session of Parliament today?

The new members signed their presence in a register. Outgoing National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq administered the oath to the members of Pakistan's 15th National 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.

Pakistan TehreeK-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan on Monday said he has yet not decided as to who will be party candidate for the slot of chief minister of Punjab.

According to Punjab's Information and Public Relations Department, Khan also thanked Sidhu for praising him in a press conference on August 2.

In an interview to news agency ANI over the weekend, when asked if India was open to a dialogue with Pakistan's Imran Khan-led government and whether India would participate in the Saarc meet that Islamabad will host this year, Modi seemed to steer clear of any definite answers.

Gavaskar is due to be present in England to cover the ongoing Test series between India and the hosts during the same time when his fellow Pakistan counterpart will step in as the Prime Minister of his country.
