Pakistan’s general elections were held on 265 general seats in the lower house of Parliament. More than 90 independent candidates backed by former prime minister Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party secured victory, according to the provisional results by the Election Commission of Pakistan.
The religio-political party, along with the PTI, protested against the alleged rigging in polls outside the provincial election commission office in Karachi on Saturday.
Many protesters called for a recounting of votes or by-election, alleging that their rival candidates were declared winner despite trailing behind them by a big margin.
