Pakistan Election 2018: As Imran Khan Leads, Nawaz Sharif’s Party “Rejects” Pak Results: 10 Facts
Islamabad: Counting of votes is underway in Pakistan, which went to polls today in a rare democratic transition of power in its coup-studded history. The results, though, have already been challenged by others with allegations of manipulation by the army and concerns over participation of terrorist and radical groups. The race is mostly a two-way one, between former cricketer Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and jailed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz. Initial trends showed Imran Khan’s PTI ahead, but it could be 24 hours before the results are declared.
