ISLAMABAD: Pakistani politician and cricket star Imran Khan early on Sunday conceded defeat to the rival Pakistan Muslim League-N in historic general elections, senior party leader Asad Umar said.
“They have emerged as the largest party. I want to congratulate the party,” Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party leader Asad Umar told private channel Geo TV.
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif said earlier that his party was the clear winner in the election and that he hoped for a majority to avoid a coalition.
“Results are still coming in, but this much is confirmed we’re the single largest party so far. Please pray that by morning we’re in a position that we don’t need the crutch of coalition partners,” he said.
