Islamabad: Mamnoon Hussain, the India-born nominee of ruling PML-N, is set to become the 12th President of Pakistan on Tuesday, succeeding incumbent Asif Ali Zardari.
The election, which was preponed from August 6, will see a one-to-one contest between Hussain and Imran Khan`s Pakistan Tenreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Justice (retd) Wajihuddin Ahmed.
Pakistan People`s Party withdrew its candidate Raza Rabbani and boycotted the election in protest to the date of polls being changed.
