Khan has said that the case is politically motivated and has denied any wrongdoing.

Pakistan's Prime Minister-to be, Imran Khan on Tuesday appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) here for an ongoing inquiry against him for allegedly misusing helicopters owned by the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).

The meeting was taken into confidence about the formation of the government and it unanimously made a decision to nominate Imran Khan as party nominee for the Prime Minister, according to PTI sources.

"After 1970, this is the first time that the masses have defeated the political elite".

Khan thanked the members for showing confidence in his leadership. Sharing a number of messages sent directly to his Instagram inbox or his social media handle, Bollywood actor, Imran Khan, of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan/ Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na fame, expressed how he how being confused as the wrong Imran Khan. "The first phase of my 22-year-old struggle is completed", apparently referring to the setting up of the party by him in 1996.

"The people do not expect us to govern the traditional way; we are viewed as different".

Earlier, Khan had been issued a notice to appear before the NAB on July 18. The PPP would contest for the seat of Speaker against the nominee of PTI in the National Assembly.

Claiming that the PTI is now in the clear to form government in the Centre, Chaudhry said, "PTI's seat tally in the National Assembly currently stands at 125 after the inclusion of independents". A party needs 172 seats to form the government. "I will become example and urge you to also be example", Imran said. The new dates for by-elections on those seats will be held within 60 days after newly-elected members of the national and provincial assemblies take the oath.
