Nawaz Sharif`s PML-N emerges as single largest party in Pak polls

Nawaz Sharif`s PML-N has emerged as the single largest party in Pakistan`s landmark general elections with 123 of the 272 Parliamentary seats but fell short of a majority and would form a government with support of independents and smaller parties.

The PML-N`s two closest rivals the Pakistan People`s Party and Imran Khan`s Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf lagged far behind with 32 and 27 seats, respectively.

Earlier, trends from the counting of votes had shown that the PML-N led by former premier Nawaz Sharif was set to bag about 125 seats.
