The PTI's final count was 116 seats, a few short of half the number of elected seats: 137. The National Assembly has 272 seats in total but two have been postponed and results of two are awaited.

The Allahu Akbar Tehreek party of Hafiz Saeed, who is accused of masterminding the 2008 attacks that killed 166 people in the Indian city of Mumbai, did not win a single seat.

Khan's party yesterday announced that it is trying to reach out to smaller parties and independents to form the next government.

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has dominated politics in the port megacity of Karachi for decades, and won six seats in the general election after splitting with its longtime leader, Altaf Hussain. Independent candidates have won 13 seats. He still remains one of the most successful captains of Pakistan.
