Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan's Party Declares Election Victory

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan's Party Declares Election Victory

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, led by former Prime Minister Imran Khan, announced on Saturday its victory in the country's recently held general elections amidst a rise in conflicting claims regarding the results.
"The PTI has secured a majority and we shall form the government," said PTI leader Jauhar Khan in a press conference.

Jauhar Khan dismissed the previous day's statement by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who claimed election victory and his intention to begin forming a coalition government through meetings with other parties.

"We demand that institutions respect the mandate of the people. Rejecting the choice of the people will have repercussions on the democracy,” he stated.

Jauhar Khan, on behalf of the recently imprisoned former Prime Minister Imran Khan currently held on several charges thanked the Pakistani people for their support.

The PTI leader announced that the party had won 170 out of the 265 total seats in the National Assembly, although he claimed there had been manipulation of the final results.

He confirmed that the party had emerged as the frontrunner in the provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.

The Election Commission of Pakistan noted that results from many constituencies had yet to arrive.
