Imran Khan is now OFFICIALLY the Prime Minister of Pakistan. He has taken his oath at the President House
The atmosphere all around the country seems to be one of a mass celebration! Even Imran Khan who has had to keep a somber face throughout the last few months to display his seriousness looked like he was giddy with excitement.
And why wouldn’t he be, the journey towards this day was 22 years in the making and had a lot of twists and turns. But of course, he wasn’t alone and couldn’t have done it without some very loyal friends.
And looks like Imran Khan’s social media team was working over time because as soon as he took the oath, his bio and Twitter handle changed.
Talk about swift (not Taylor).
The #oath is fashionably late but the twitter bio is on time.
Congratulations @ImranKhanPTI and good luck for the exciting times ahead. #NayaPakistan #PrimeMinisterIK #PrimeMinisterImranKhan pic.twitter.com/pSOVouKGl1

And people honestly can’t seem to talk about anything other than Imran Khan and his Oath Taking because all of the top trends on Twitter and regarding them
Now if that doesn’t tell you about how excited people are then nothing will.
#ImranKhan smiles sheepishly at the words he misheard and misspoke during the oath-taking ceremony today. Special focus on 'leadership' since he said "youm-e-qayadat" instead of "youm-e-qayamat" 🤣#Pakistan pic.twitter.com/Wd207xZMhV

In fact, the new Prime Minister was so excited that he even fumbled up a few words, but his adoring people did not get offended in fact thought it was endearing and a lot of people seemed to relate to this little fumble

"Ohhh sorry…. Roz-e-qayamat lol"

But some people just wanted to make a point…

And others couldn’t help but crack a few jokes

One of the extremely few times when you hope Sidhu says
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHA IMRAN CHA GAYA GURU HAHAHAHA PAKISTAN KABHI NA CHORNA HAHAHAHAHA"
and this time he actually replaces R with D.

Aside from the jokes, some people saw that something was missing from the Oath Taking ceremony and were quick to point it out.
Imran Khan’s sons Qasim and Suleiman were notably missing from the festivities and apparently, according to Jemima, it was on the orders of Imran Khan himself
Thanks. The boys are very sad not to be there but IK was adamant that they should not come.
— Jemima Goldsmith (@Jemima_Khan) August 17, 2018
And of course, everyone defended Imran Khan’s decision and even tried to rationalize it
That's good because these bloody politicians will bark on them and IK can't bear that.

Jem, it's for the best. Undoubtedly he only said it for their safety. Please let them know Insafians love them like our own. They'll be in our thoughts tomorrow, as will you. Thank you for the role you played in @ImranKhanPTI achieving his goal. You weren't an anchor for him ❤

But someone in attendance, wearing all white as a contrast to her husband’s black Sherwani was Bushra Maneka
Of course, people noticed the first lady and even appreciated her presence.

But generally, everyone seems very excited about Imran Khan becoming the Prime Minister of Pakistan
And those who have supported him for years, this day must feel a little surreal!
