"When I resorted to protest, I was again dubbed an agitator for exercising my constitutional right but I promise we will not stop you from demanding scrutiny or protest, in fact, if you will come out on streets, we will offer you our own container for the goal", said Imran Khan.

He had needed 172 votes for a majority.

After the announcement of the election result, lawmakers from the PML-N chanted slogans and protested against the decision.

"Imran Khan is heartthrob to millions", said Sidhu.

Mr Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) party swept to power in the July 25 election but will need support from independents and smaller parties because it does not have enough seats in parliament to form a majority government.

Some television channels flashed archive images of Khan during his 1992 triumph as the vote was announced.

But they too resisted independent investigations into the circumstances of major errors. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called on Gen. The coalition denied responsibility.

Rival parties have alleged "blatant" vote-rigging.

Khan's victory represents an end to decades of rotating leadership between the PML-N and the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), punctuated by periods of military rule.

"I will not leave those who looted this country for years, who spent all our taxpayers' money overseas and didn't let this country progress, there will be no reconciliation with the looters, accountability will be our top priority", Imran Khan said during his first speech as PM-elect in National Assembly. Sindh province remained in the hands of the PPP. The PTI chief has also directed to avoid any unnecessary burden on the national exchequer in this regard.

He will face myriad challenges including militant extremism, water shortages, and a booming population negating growth in the developing country, among others.

In the West, Khan is often seen as a celebrity whose high-profile romances were tabloid fodder, but at home he cuts a more conservative persona as a devout Muslim who believes feminism has degraded motherhood.
