“The PTI chairman has directed to stage the oath-taking event with austerity,” Dawn newspaper quoted PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry as saying.
“He will take his oath in a simple ceremony at Aiwan-e-Sadr (President House),” the spokesperson said.
“It has been decided that no foreign personalities will be invited to the ceremony — it will be a completely national event. Only a few close friends of Imran Khan will be invited.”
“There will be no show of extravagance at the event,” Chaudhry said.
However, he added that some foreign friends of Imran will be invited to the event. “A few of Imran’s friends are the only foreign nationals being invited to the event,” he said.
President Mamnoon Hussain will administer him the oath of the office.
