Goldsmith, who was married to Khan between 1995 and 2004, tweeted this morning as it became clear that the PTI chief was in the lead:
She also mentioned the next challenge
22 years later, after humiliations, hurdles and sacrifices, my sons’ father is Pakistan’s next PM. It’s an incredible lesson in tenacity, belief & refusal to accept defeat. The challenge now is to remember why he entered politics in the 1st place. Congratulations @ImranKhanPTI— Jemima Goldsmith (@Jemima_Khan) July 26, 2018
Goldsmith and Khan have maintained cordial relations despite their divorce. The couple have two sons. Khan has been married twice after divorcing Goldsmith.
