Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) finally released the official results of the 11th General election of Pakistan which held on 25th July 2018. It almost took 56 hours to announce the final stats in which ECP confirms the victory of Pakistan Threek-e-Insaf and the overall figure showed that this political party is the largest political party in Pakistan right now.
According to the official announcement of ECP, out of 270 seats, Pakistan Threek-e-Insaf has won 115 seats of National Assembly. To make the government PTI still relay on independent seats because according to law one member can only take one seat and has to give up other seats. Few of the members contested from multiple seats but they need to give them up and only take one, for that PTI will collaborate with independent candidates and other parties as well like PML-Q, BAP, and GDA.
Pakistan Muslim League-N got 64 seats in the National Assembly and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) got 43 seats. On the other hand, Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA) got 12 seats and MQM-P got only 6 seats. Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) has won 4 seats while Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) won only 2 seats. Awami National Party (ANP) got one seat while 13 independents candidates also played the role in National Assembly.
For decades, PML-N has ruled Punjab and stood as the largest party there. In 2018 General election PML-N has won 129 seats out of 295 of the provincial assembly of Punjab. But now PTI is much closer to them by winning 123 seats and could be exceeded to 28 seats with the help of independent candidates. After these two competitors, PML-Q is the third one who got 7 seats and PPP got 6 seats of Punjab provincial assembly.
