In this TV grab taken from Pakistan Television (PTV) shows Yousuf Raza Gilani (C) addresses Parliament after being elected as the leader of the house in Islamabad on March 24, 2008.

Gilani won 264 votes in the 342-seat lower house of parliament, while Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, a backer of President Pervez Musharraf, secured 42 votes. There were several abstentions.

This hand out picture shows Yousuf Raza Gilani (L) newly elected Pakistani Prime Minister greets with opponent Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi (R) after win the prime minister election at the national assembly in Islamabad on March 24, 2008. Pakistan's new prime minister ordered the release of judges detained by President Pervez Musharraf, triggering a showdown with the US-backed leader just minutes after being elected. Legislators cheered as the 55-year-old Gilani, who himself spent five years in prison under Musharraf's regime, was elected overwhelmingly by the lower house of parliament -- where an anti-Musharraf coalition now holds a majority.
