The outcome of the just concluded Pakistani election has seen no party with a clear majority to form the next government between the candidates of both ex-Prime Minister Imran Khan and Nawaz Sheriff.
The PTI party led by convicted former PM Imran Khan claimed the majority of seats won in the parliament, prompting Khan followers to anticipate victory pending till the final announcement of the election result.
While the PTI shrouded itself with the electoral outcome, another former PM Nawaz Sharif also affirmed his party’s confidence in forming the new government.
In a bid to consolidate his party into power, Nawaz Sharif has called for a coalition with other parties to form the majority in the parliament.
To curtail any potential chaos that the unexpected election result may bring, the country’s Chief of Arm Force, General Asim Munir has called on the Pakistanis to be steadfast and move away from the politics of “anarchy and polarisation,” and also, emphasizes on the need for stability to unite the diverse polity and ensure functional democracy.
