Imran Khan had submitted an application to the NAB through his lawyer Mr. Babar Awan seeking another date to appear in the helicopter misuse case.

The election commission halted the notification for Khan's victory from two major constituencies - Lahore and Islamabad - but notification for his success from Mianwali, Bannu, and Karachi was issued "conditionally".

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday has issued notifications to newly-elected members of the national and provincial assemblies. Mehru Hayat, daughter of Imran's wife Bushra Maneka, and her friend Farah Khan congratulated the prime minister designate for the win in elections and expressed contentment over the party's leadership and manifesto.

The ECP move comes a day after the former cricket hero was formally nominated as its candidate by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for the slot of prime minister.

Khan was earlier summoned on July 18, but he failed to appear before the panel sighting elections.

Ruby Rose cast as Batwoman in new TV series
The Australian actress has landed the coveted, titular role role in Batwoman , which The CW is developing as a standalone series. Ruby Rose , whose breakout role was as Stella in Orange Is the New Black , has been a vocal spokesperson for LGBTQ+ rights.

According to sources, the decision has been taken due to court's order to conduct vote recount in 15 National Assembly and 17 provincial assemblies' constituencies.

PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry said the party will nominate Imran at a parliamentary committee meeting. Similarly, in Punjab, the PML-N has become the single largest party, but there is a small difference of just seven seats between the two parties which are presently busy in wooing the independents in an effort to form the government in the province.

However, the notification of candidates on special seats will be issued on Saturday, after which the president will summon National Assembly's session.

The results of 14 other constituencies have not been specified for various reasons, Dawn news reported.
