Imran Khan Leading in Pakistan Elections

  • As votes are being counted for Pakistan elections, it has surfaced that Ex-cricket star Imran Khan is leading. Up till now, votes from the 42% of the total polling stations have been counted and PTI, (Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf) Mr. Khan's party is leading in 113 of the total 272 National Assembly constituencies. However, the political rivals are claiming a large-scale vote-rigging. Election officials have denied the rigging and labeled some problems as merely technical problems. There was also a bomb blast at a polling station which has left many dead. The polls are historic for Pakistan as this would only be the second time the government would hand over the power after completing the full term.
