The unofficial results for the provincial assembly elections predict the three major parties, the PML-N, the PPP and the PTI will form strong bases in Punjab, Sindh and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa respectively.

The PML-N has swept the Punjab Assembly elections according to results so far, holding a massive 134 of 183 unofficially announced seats.

Similarly in Sindh, the PPP managed a clear victory with 42 of 69 unofficially announced seats so far.

The PTI holds a lead in K-P, with 28 of 82 announced seats.

Balochistan remains divided between the JUI-F, independents, PKMAP, PML-N and PML-Q.

    I was really hoping IK would be able to form a simple majority govt in KP so that we could actually see his policies in action.

    As expected,the PPP managed to retain Sindh. Hats off to Pakistani people,who came out in large numbers,especially women,to vote,despite violence threats from Taliban. The new government in Pakistan should deal with a heavy hand,with this extremist elements,who believe only in one thing – violence. Violence has no place in a democracy,and democracy should be strengthened in Pakistan.

    Nawaz sharif is better than zardari government.PML swept punjab because of shahbaz who did great job. Unfortunately people did not understand Imran khan who is the best and fit to run government in such difficult time. we wished that people should gave mandate to him to serve country. congratulation to people of KPK who did what they promised and hope they will see change

    Sindh Assembly ones that were announced don’t include most of Karachi & Hyderabad. Your prediction & the results will change rapidly once they are announced

    Yes, IceSoul, “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.” I too was wishing the same, but it was not to be. But, the results would prove two points: 1. In a democratic vote, with all the flaws, this is what the people’s choice is, and we must bow to it, and work within the mandate given by the people. And, 2. given the results as they are, PTI will have to work within a coalition, to either prove that they are an effective political party, or to prove that they cannot function within the ground realities of Pakistan’s geo-political framework. But, PTI can maintain its’ high moral standards and set up an example of how an effective political party can function within a ‘flawed’ system and still hold its’ head high. MQM, in Sindh, for quite sometime has to work within that framework, but their standards leave a whole lot to be desired. Granted, the analogy of MQM is not completely appropriate, since they have never achieved the highest number of votes in Sindh, as PTI may in KPK.

    At the end of the day, we should all remember that, no matter how seemingly flawed, the results may appear, it does truly represents the will of the people. That is where we are today, all major parties just representing their respective provinces. Whether a Federation can come out of it remains to be seen.

    Let me update Tribune about Balochistan since everyone of you are busy in counting seats in Punjab and other provinces
    NP 10
    BNP 3
    PKMAP 6
    JUI 6
    PML 3
    Independent 8
    These were some results we got from non-media sources. Even on the elections day media turns blind eye towards Balochistan

    @baloch
    yesterday, all day long, I was watching different news channel and I was waiting and eager to see the polling of Balochistan but it was extremely sad to see that media didnt gave any coverage to Balochistan..didnt even gave it a bird eye view.
