ISLAMABAD: President-elect Mamnoon Hussain will take oath of office on Monday as the 12th head of state. The oath will be administered by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry at a ceremony to be held at the Presidency.

It will be a rare event as former president Asif Ali Zardari, who stayed in the Presidency for five years till Sunday, will also attend the ceremony along with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, members of the federal cabinet and heads of parliamentary parties.

Even though the PPP had boycotted the presidential election, Mr Mamnoon Hussain was felicitated by Mr Zardari who wished him well in the discharge of his responsibilities as the head of the federation.
