Sharif’s party claims victory in the elections

Miraculous Victory: Muslim League Wins Pakistan Elections Amid Contentious Political Climate

In the hotly contested election held in Pakistan, the Muslim League led by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif emerged victorious. Despite being strongly linked to another ex-prime minister currently in prison, Imran Khan, and his PTI party, independent candidates also won a majority of seats.

On Saturday morning, counting was still underway, with independent candidates taking 99 of the country’s 266 parliamentary seats. Meanwhile, the Muslim League had secured 71 seats, while the Pakistan People’s Party had 53 and minor parties had 27. However, 15 seats remained undecided.

Given that the Muslim League did not have a large enough majority to form a government on its own, Sharif invited other parties and candidates who had secured seats in the elections to cooperate with his party. As per Pakistani law, independent candidates are unable to form a government on their own and can instead join forces with any other party three days after the election.

Amidst the contentious election season, PTI posted a video on social media purporting to show that their candidates had won despite Khan currently being in prison and banned from politics for ten years. Pakistan’s military also called for an end to the political standoff and urged all parties to work together for a steady and healing approach to Pakistan’s future.
