The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders began discussing the terms of an alliance with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan to carve out a formula for the formation of a government, The Express Tribune reported. The PML-N would take the post of Prime Minister, and the posts of the president and National Assembly speaker will be set aside for its partners if an alliance is agreed upon.
The release of results commenced nearly 12 hours after the conclusion of polling for both national and provincial assemblies on Thursday.
Analysts suggest that the military favours three-time former PM Nawaz Sharif over Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan to assume power. However, Khan loyalists, running as independents, defied expectations by thriving and winning the most seats. Leaders from Khan’s party hailed it as a triumph for democracy, signalling the people’s demand for change.
The final official results indicated that independent candidates supported by PTI secured victory in 97 seats, while the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) emerged victorious in 76 constituencies. Additionally, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) secured 54 seats, and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) garnered 17 seats.
