Twarit Vishwa: With 118 seats, Imran Khan will be the new PM of Pakistan

Updated 27 Jul 2018 10:12 AM

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan claimed victory in the general elections after his party emerged as the single largest in the National Assembly with its candidates winning 104 seats and leading in 14 others, amid rival political parties' claim of "blatant" rigging.
Jailed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) won 58 seats and was leading in four constituencies while Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) led by former president Asif Ali Zardari won 37 seats and was leading in six seats according to the latest unofficial results.
Pakistan's National Assembly comprises a total of 342 members, of which 272 are directly elected whereas the rest - 60 seats reserved for women and 10 for religious minorities - are selected later through proportional representation among parties with more than five per cent of the vote.
A party can only form the government if it manages to clinch 172 seats in total.
