Updated Saturday Jul 28 2018
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has released results of all 270 National Assembly (NA) seats that were polled on July 25 across the country.
According to the results, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leads the NA tally with 116 seats. Trailing is the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) with 64 seats and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) with 43 seats.
The alliance of religious parties, Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), bagged 13 NA seats, tying with 13 independents who also won the seats.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) got six seats, whereas Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid and Balochistan Awami Party got four seats each.
Sindh's Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) and Balochistan National Party (BNP) won two seats each. Awami Muslim League led by PTI-allied Sheikh Rasheed, Awami National Party (ANP), and Jamhoori Wattan Party secured a seat each.
The July 25 election also witnessed major upsets for political heavyweights.
In the Punjab Assembly, as per the ECP's results for the total of 295 seats, the PML-N bagged 129 and PTI 123 seats.
The PML-Q won seven seats, PPP six and Pakistan Awami Raj one seat.
Independents elected to the provincial assembly stand at 29.
In the provincial assembly, only the result of PP-1 (Attock) is awaited as in the total house of 297, polling wasn't held on PP-87 and PP-103 due to the death of candidates.
In the Sindh Assembly's 129 seats, the PPP continued its majority in the house with 76 seats while the PTI managed to get 23, MQM-P 16 and GDA 11 seats.
Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan won two seats while the MMA bagged one seat from the province.
The result for the provincial assembly, with 130 seats in total, is complete as polling in PS-87 (Malir) was postponed after the death of a candidate.
The recently-formed Pak Sarzameen Party which comprised of MQM-P defectors led by former Karachi mayor Mustafa Kamal, failed to win a single seat in the provincial assembly.
For the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, the ECP declared results of 96 out of 97 seats where the PTI has managed a majority by bagging 65 seats.
The MMA has won 10 seats while the ANP got six and PML-N five seats.
The PPP only won four seats in the province while six independents also made it to the provincial assembly.
Polling in two constituencies — PK-78 and PK-99 — was postponed after the death of candidates in terrorist attacks.
The ECP has declared results for all 50 Balochistan Assembly seats that were up for grabs.
The newly-formed Balochistan Awami Party bagged 15 seats, after which the MMA stands at second place with nine seats.
The BNP won six seats, the PTI won four seats, whereas the BNP-Awami and ANP got three seats each.
The Pashtoonkhwa Milli Awami Party, PML-N, and Jamhoori Wattan Party secured a seat each, while Hazara Democratic Party got two seats.
A total of five candidates have also been elected as independents.
Millions of Pakistanis stepped out to cast their ballot in Wednesday's election, including women in areas where they previously stood disenfranchised.
Polling began at 8AM across the country's 85,307 polling stations and continued until 6PM, despite calls by several major parties, including PML-N, PPP and PTI, to extend the polling time by an hour.
The parties had complained of “a slow voting process” and thus sought more time to facilitate voters — a request that was dismissed by the ECP.
The election campaign was marred by violence with three candidates killed in targetted attacks in the run-up to the polls, and culminated with a suicide blast outside a polling station in Quetta which claimed at least 31 lives.
As many as 12,570 candidates contested for a total of 849 seats of national and provincial assemblies in the country's 11th General Election.
Polling was postponed on a total of eight seats, including six in provincial assemblies and two NA seats. These include: PS-87 (Malir), PK-78 (Peshawar), PP- 87 (Mianwali), PB-35 (Mastung), PK-99 (Dera Ismail Khan), PP-103 (Faisalabad), NA-103 (Faisalabad) and NA-60 (Rawalpindi).
