Former cricketer Imran Khan sworn in as Prime Minister of Pakistan

Former cricketer Imran Khan was sworn in as Pakistan's new prime minister. Two decades later he entered politics.

He was elected Prime Minister on Friday in the nation's National Assembly.

His PTI party won more seats in the July elections and Mr. Imran Khan became Prime Minister with the help of small parties.

Journalists say their priority is to address the financial crisis with the economy that needs a huge bailout.

On Saturday morning, Mr. Imran Khan tears and smile that he stumbled upon words in his amounts led by country's President Mamnoon Hussein.

Members of the 1992 World Cup winning team were captain of Mr. Imran Khan's victory, watching the ceremony with PTI figures and military officials.

On Friday, Mr. Imran Khan was supported by 176 members. His opponent, Shahbaz Sharif, the Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president of Pakistan, received 96 votes.

In a parliamentary speech, 65-year-old Mr. Imran Khan has reiterated his promises to employ "corrupt" politicians and improve opportunities for young people.

"First of all, we will start strict accountability. I promise to my God that everyone who looted this country will be made accountable,"
 he said.
"I did not climb on any dictator's shoulders; I reached this place after struggling for 22 years."
Opposition parties have claimed that elections were held last month. Despite this, they agreed to take their seats at the meeting.

Leading the election, Mr. Imran Khan was widely seen as a favorable candidate for a strong military campaign to express his opinion against his powerful protesters.

If Mr. Imran Khan was elected before the election, his initial focus was on the economy, he told the BBC. Pakistan's currency, rupee, has fallen dramatically in the past year. Inflation rises and the country's trade deficit is increasing.

Exports, such as textiles, have been hit by cheap products manufactured by regional competitors, including China. Analysts say that the new government will need to turn to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for the country's second bailout since 2013, which complicates attempts to increase welfare.
