Pakistan Election Results 2024: PTI and PML-N Fall Short of Majority, Indicating a Fractured Mandate

Pakistan Election Results 2024: Impending Fractured Mandate as PTI and PML-N Fall Short of Majority

With neither the independent candidates supported by Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) nor Nawaz Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) securing a majority, Pakistan is on the brink of a fractured mandate. PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif acknowledged the lack of numbers to form a government and indicated that his brother Shehbaz Sharif would engage with Asif Ali Zardari from the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) to explore a potential coalition, as per Reuters.

According to the latest count by Reuters, independent candidates have clinched 86 out of the 201 seats tallied so far. PML-N trails with 60 seats, while PPP follows closely with 45 seats. Dismissing the possibility of an alliance with PML-N or PPP, PTI chairman Gohar Ali Khan asserted their intention to “form the government at the Centre and Punjab,” AP reported.

Election Overview: Held on February 8, the voting encompassed 265 seats in the Pakistan National Assembly. The next Prime Minister needs a simple majority of 169 votes in the NA to assume office. The primary political contenders include the PML-N, led by former PM Nawaz Sharif, PTI led by Imran Khan, and the PPP, with former Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto as the PM candidate.

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif claims victory in the national elections on Friday, announcing that his party emerged as the largest. However, failing to secure a clear majority, Sharif expressed intentions to engage in talks with other political groups to form a coalition government. This declaration followed the release of results from more than three-quarters of the 265 seats, a process that extended over 24 hours after polling concluded on Thursday.

The results indicated that independent candidates, largely supported by imprisoned former Prime Minister Imran Khan, secured the most seats – 92 out of the 225 counted by 1600 GMT. Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) garnered 64 seats, while the Pakistan People’s Party led by Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the son of the late Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, obtained 50 seats. The remaining seats were distributed among small parties and other independent candidates.
