Several opposition parties call for fresh elections

31 July 2018

Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, or PTI, won 116 of 269 contested seats in the National Assembly, while his nearest rival, Shahbaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League, won 64 seats, the Election Commission said after two days of tedious vote-counting from Wednesday's balloting.

"Prime Minister expressed hope that democracy will take deeper roots in Pakistan", said an official statement by the Ministry of External Affairs, indicating India's support to the democratic process in Pakistan, where political parties have expressed concerns over its fairness. Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif had travelled to Delhi to attend Modi's oath taking ceremony and the Indian premier had in December 2015 made a stopover in Lahore to greet his counterpart on his birthday. With smaller parties and independents winning at least 45 seats, it should not be hard for the PTI to form alliances and elect Khan as prime minister.

PTI has emerged the victor of parliamentary elections with 116 seats, with the previous ruling party Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) obtaining just 64 seats.

Khan has offered to investigate all claims of irregularities, and promised to build a new Pakistan with an Islamic welfare state that would seek to elevate those mired in poverty.

All indicators suggest the Pakistan Tehrek-e-Insaf's government - which is likely to take oath next month - will immediately have to approach the IMF for what would be the country's 13th bailout from the fund.

Mr Khan in his victory speech had also said that better relations between Pakistan and India would be "good for all of us".

"We have contacted small parties and independent members, they will soon meet party leaders in Islamabad", Chaudhry said late Friday.
