Pakistan's Election Commission yesterday released the full results of the general elections, giving the preliminary position of all political parties in the national and provincial assemblies. The independents have won 93 seats in the National Assembly of 266 directly elected members, surpassing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) 75 seats and Pakistan People's Party 54 seats. Independent candidates, mostly affiliated with Khan's PTI, have secured the most parliamentary seats, reducing the chances of the army-backed PML-N from securing a ruling majority. However, PTI too does not have enough

seats to form a government on its own. 

The general elections were held on Thursday, but there was an unusual delay in the announcement of results which led to allegations of vote rigging at many constituencies across the country. While both jailed former prime minister Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party and ex-premier Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) have claimed victory, a coalition government appears inevitable as no single party has got the majority in the National Assembly.
