Indian Union Minister RK Singh on Pakistan election results: It was rigged. Observers have said it was rigged. Military was there on the polling booths. They ensured that Nawaz Sharif and his daughter land in jail and don't get to campaign. They ensured disturbances in Bilawal Bhutto's meetings.

Imran Khan of PTI has won NA-53 (Islamabad - 2) with 92,891 votes, defeating PML-N's Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, as per unofficial results on Pakistan media channels.

According to Geo News, Imran Khan's PTI is now leading on 120 seats while PML-N is ahead on 61. The PPP is a distant third as of now with lead on 40 seats.

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Pakistan election results: I think it was completely predictable. For the last year also we have been hearing that the military wants a change, they want to get rid of Nawaz Sharif & his party and that they see Imran Khan as the most pliable potential. Imran is largest single party but without majority by himself. He'll depend on independents and small parties' support, almost certainly MMA - which will follow military instructions which means if he does things military considers out of line, support can be pulled. In those circumstances, they will get an acceptable face as PM even an inspiring one while making sure that he doesn't get out of hands, doesn't get too independent. So this is a perfect result for the Pakistani military.

As per latest trends, Imran Khan's PTI is leading on 119 seats. Here is the list of winners which is being updated as per latest trends.
