PM Khan congratulates Trudeau on winning election


Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday congratulated his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau after the latter won the Canadian elections.

Taking to Twitter, Khan felicitated Trudeau and said that he looked forward to working with him in the future.

“Congratulations to Justin Trudeau for winning the elections in Canada. I look forward to working with him,” he tweeted.

It was a tough election campaign for the Canadian prime minister who was dogged with allegations. Trudeau managed to secure a minority government after the election results were announced.

AFP adds: Television projections as of 2 am Tuesday (0600 GMT) declared the Liberals winners or leading in 156 of the nation´s 338 electoral districts, versus 122 for his main rival Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives, after polling stations across six time zones closed.

As early as Tuesday, Trudeau will have to form an alliance with one or more smaller parties in order to govern a fractured nation.
