Pakistan: Election Commission issues results for 250 out of 270 contested seats of National Assembly

In Pakistan, Election Commission today issued results for 250 out of 270 contested seats of the National Assembly. 

Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) has got 109 seats, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz - 62 and Pakistan Peoples Party-42. Independent with 12 seats are the next biggest group of winners. 
   

Meanwhile, Imran Khan has claimed victory in the elections. 

In a television address last yesterday, he said his party was successful and was given a mandate. On the other hand, Nawaz Sharif's party PML-N and a host of smaller parties have rejected the results, all alleging vote-rigging and manipulation.

PTI chairman Imran Khan won all five seats where he had contested the elections, whereas Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari lost in their traditional strongholds. However, he managed to win from his native constituency in Larkana.

PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif, who had contested the elections from four constituencies won only from Lahore.  Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbassi also lost the two seats he contested.

PML-N has decided in principle not to boycott parliament on the issue of poll rigging and play an “aggressive” role while sitting on the opposition benches in the National Assembly.

Voting for the general elections was held on Wednesday, but authorities are facing hiccups in finalising the outcome of due to fault in the electronic Result Transmission Service. There were also allegations of rigging in the poll process. 

In the lower house of 342, a party will need 172 seats to elect the Prime Minister with a simple majority.
