Islamabad, February 10, 2024 — In a significant political development, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) has asserted its victory on 170 out of 265 National Assembly seats, with plans to form an alliance with Majlis Wahdat-e-Muslimeen (MWM), as reported by The Nation on Saturday.

Allegations of Electoral Manipulation

PTI leader Barrister Gohar Khan has alleged attempts to tamper with PTI's victories, asserting, "There was an apparent attempt to shape the winning seats of the PTI into defeats." He urged party workers to protest outside Returning Officers' offices where results faced delays, as detailed by Dawn.

PTI's Claimed Lead

Addressing reporters, Khan stated, "We claim with great certitude that right now, the PTI has achieved a lead on 170 seats of the National Assembly." He emphasized discrepancies in Form-45 results, alleging conversions of PTI's victories into defeats.

Context and Challenges

Notably, Imran Khan's disqualification from contesting elections and the removal of PTI's electoral symbol led to PTI members contesting independently. Unofficial provisional results reported by Geo News show independent candidates, largely backed by PTI, leading on 100 seats, followed by PML-N and PPP, according to Dawn.

Calls for Peaceful Protests

PTI leader Barrister Gohar Ali Khan called for peaceful protests, asserting, "It is our constitutional right." He highlighted the need for transparency and accountability in the electoral process.

International Scrutiny

Amid speculations regarding the fairness of the elections, concerns have been raised by the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union regarding violence, lack of a level playing field, and internet outages.

Imran Khan's Response

Former PM Imran Khan released a 'victory speech,' claiming success and criticizing opposition strategies, citing a massive voter turnout. However, the delay in results declaration has drawn criticism towards the Election Commission of Pakistan.

PTI's Success Across Regions

PTI claims victory in the Punjab Assembly and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, signaling regional success amidst ongoing controversies over electoral integrity.

As the nation awaits official results and grapples with political uncertainty, the integrity of Pakistan's electoral process remains under scrutiny both domestically and internationally.
