ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan will take oath as member of National Assembly on Wednesday, June 19.

In a message on social networking website Twitter on Monday, the cricketer-turned-politician said he would be taking oath in National Assembly on June 19.

“Speaking on the budget the same day,” Khan added.

“My address to the Parliament will lay out PTI's policy on crucial national issues and how the K-P Govt will be a role model of clean, efficient governance,” Khan added.

The PTI chief could not take oath on June 1 along with other members of the National Assembly owing to his ailment.

On May 7, as the election campaign touched its peak, Khan fell off a 15-metre-high forklift during a rally in Lahore, suffering serious injuries to his back.

Later, Khan, whose party has emerged as the second most vote-winning party in the recent polls, spent almost a month at the Shaukat Khannum Memoral Hospital recovering from his injuries.

Khan then arrived in Islamabad on June 13 after doctors at SKMH discharged him from the hospital and cleared him for travelling.
