Unofficial results for the provincial assembly elections, as of 11am on May 13, predict the future of big players this elections, with PML-N, PPP and PTI likely to form governments in Punjab, Sindh and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa respectively.

PML-N holds a strong position in the Punjab assembly while PTI’s strongest performance remains in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa assembly.

Talks of alliances go around as more results pour in, with the possibility of a PPP and MQM alliance in Sindh.

It remains to be seen how the PTI will ally itself after official election results are in, as there is a possibility of Maulana Fazlur Rehman forming an alliance with others in the KP assembly to combat PTI.

    Ch. Nisar just won after 27 votes, after the 7th recount. That is the extent these people will go to to manipulate results. PTI has already excepted defeat, but robbing it of seats in this manner is completely unacceptable!

    PMLN will not allow PTI to make the government in KPK … they will make alliances by offering bribes to other political parties …. tough time for PTI

    At the level of Federal Government, I support the PML-N as the Government and PTI as a robust opposition. In Baluchistan, PML-N can muster alliances to form Government. In KP, Nawaz for heaven’s sake let PTI form government or it will lead to massive discontent with adverse repercussion for the whole country and you won’t be able to run the Federation smoothly (and you will consequently drive the PTI to come to terms with PPP and MQM, who can then launch a massive challenge to destabilize your Government). Please think only in the interest of the stability and progress of Pakistan and let IK run KP and see how you compete with him in the Punjab. (As for Sindh, no need to say who will form the government, no question it is going to be PPP.)

    PML N have done great job, infect quite active in the development of Pakistan & i think all other parties should accept their defeat gracefully rather to blame others. As a nation we need to be united.
    Election results are acceptable and everybody knows in advance that PML N will lead…… InshaAllah now we will see Roshan Pakistan
