Imran Khan’s Justice Party Wins Second Most Votes in Pakistan 11 May Polls

Although the Pakistan Justice Party (Tehreek-e-Insaf - PTI) of cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan did not win the Pakistan Polls held on 11 May, it has emerged as the second largest political party in Pakistan after PML(N) of former prime minster Nawaz Sharif, reports Khaleej Times.

Khan’s party polled 7.7 million votes in the May 11 election to win 28 national assembly seats, but the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) which led the outgoing government took 32 seats with only 6.9 million ballots.

Turnout at the election, which marked the first time a civilian government had completed a five-year term and handed over power at the ballot box, was 55 percent, the election commission said — up from 44 percent in the 2008 poll.
