Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chaiman Imran Khan has topped the unofficial results for NA-1, Peshawar 1, Express News reported.

Ghulam Ahmad Bilour admitted defeat before the results came in.

Engineer Hamidul Haq won the NA-2 constituency for PTI against ANP candidate Arbab Najeebullah Khan.

Ghulam Ahmad Bilour said “People are not satisfied with the politicians in power and they want change. They have rejected us and expressed confidence in them [PTI].”

“I think what has happened was right and now we need to sit and analyse and see why we were rejected,” he said.

“I prayed that the government runs for 5 years because we want democracy. I congratulate Imran Khan,” he added.

    GOD, ALLAH, if you will give Pakistan one more chance by giving us Imran Khan, we will be truly grateful with our bottom-most hearts! Please dear God, save us from these corrupt leeches who have already been given the chance, with which they spread corruption and inhumanity. Please God, give us one more chance; please don’t hurt our hearts that are desperately yearning for a better Pakistan.

    Mr Bilaur,

    You did not have to loose against Imran Khan. But you were too stubborn to defy the TALIBANS, the defacto powr in Pakistan!!

    Pashtuns don’t have the feudal curse. They vote with their heads,and they love Pakistan.

    KUDOS to KPK.

    yes….seems like KPK is full of true Pakistanis……not same can be said about Punjab…Punjab wants to try the same people who have done nothing for three decades and who were planted by 80s dictator….

    A class act by Bilor and his extended family. It is a new tradition that the losing candidates come out and accept the verdict. People have spoken and we all have to respect their decision. It is the opposition that keeps the democratic system going not the arrogance of the winners. By being open and helpful we have to show how an opposition looks like in a civilized democracy.

    Bilour family has proved their class and admitted their defeats…I salute him for their sacrifices and steadfastness because ANP did pay with their blood…I wish we had democracy so we could have their process happened long time…congratulation to IK for his determination to never give up…against all the odds. Hopefully Pakistan can get out of hereditary monopoly and we can some real democratic parties…

    Jin pa takya tha wohi pattey hawa deney lagay, Why Punjab why? If KPK can vote for IK, if people in Karachi can stand for hours to vote for IK? Why can’t you? We know that it will take decades if not centuries for interior Sindh to come out of the BHUTTO TRANCE, we knew that given the state of affairs in Balouchistan PTI didn’t have a chance there but we expected so much better from you. You really let us down.
    For all those who voted for status quo or did not vote at all, please enjoy your life without security, law and order, electricity, gas, eduction, health, etc while your money is filling up THEIR bank accounts. You have only yourselves to blame.

    We need a transparent and of cooperative governance. May Allah help us in this endeavour.
