Spokesperson Fawad Chaudhary has said that his party will form governments in the center and the three provinces whilst in Sindh, it will play the role of a strong opposition. He has begun coalition talks to form the government after his party won 116 of 269 contested seats in the National Assembly. A new government will be formed in Pakistan and there will be a new prime minister, who has extended a hand of friendship towards India.
Former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, of the third-placed Pakistan People's Party, said the election was the "worst rigged" in history.
His Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was the single largest party in Wednesday's election, which took place amid allegations of military meddling (to Khan's profit, his rivals said) and was marred by a deadly blast in Quetta.
Nearly-finalised results also indicated religious parties that fielded more candidates than ever before failed to win any National Assembly seats.
But it would be foolish to deny Khan's popularity among a sizeable section of the country's population that he has invigorated with his energetic anti-corruption campaign and his promise of a "naya" Pakistan, which would be egalitarian and where meritocracy will prevail and not dynasties as in Sharif's party.
Khan's confidante Jehangir Khan Tarin, who has been tasked to contact independent candidates, talked with Muttahidda Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQMP) leader Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui who later refused to attend a multi-party meeting which rejected the election results.
Several political parties have alleged vote-rigging, and have threatened nationwide protests, unless a new election is called.
