Political equations in Pakistan are changing every hour with no clear result still seen even with Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) now claiming that President Arif Alvi would invite his party to form the government after it got the majority in the national elections, a day after former PM Nawaz Sharif gave his victory speech to people.

“We have no quarrel with anyone, we want to move forward. We will proceed and form a government in accordance with the constitution and the law,” PTI Chairman Barrister Gohar Ali Khan was quoted as saying by Geo News.

Imran Khan gets bail

A Pakistani court on Saturday approved Imran Khan's bail petition.

The court approved the bail petitions against Khan and the party's senior leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi in 12 different May 9 riots' cases registered against them.

Khan was in jail on the day of polling.

Meanwhile, Army Chief General Asim Munir said Pakistan needs to move on from the politics of anarchy and polarisation.

“An independent and free exercise of the right to vote, demonstrates their determination for democracy and trust over the constitution of Pakistan,” the army chief was quoted as saying in a statement issued by ARY News.

Nawaz Sharif declares victory

Former Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif on Friday claimed his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) won the national polls.

According to local news reports, PTI-backed independent candidates are leading with more than 90 seats to their name.

In his 'victory speech' Nawaz Sharif was quoted as saying by Geo News: "Alhamdulillah, the PML-N is the largest single party in the country today after the elections.”

He referred to the country's ongoing financial crisis and said at least 10 years are needed to bring stability to the country.

“Our sole agenda is a prosperous Pakistan,” he added.
