NEW DELHI -- For Imran Khan, the man set to become Pakistan's next prime minister, the results of the July 25 general elections represent a victory that has been two decades in the making, but could not have come at a more inopportune moment.

Khan's Tehreek-e-Insaf party, the second largest opposition group before the election, ran a campaign focused on improving social security, but delivering on its promises will be a formidable challenge at a time when state finances are in a critical state.
