Nawaz Sharif claims victory in Pakistan election


FORMER prime minister Nawaz Sharif has claimed victory in Pakistan’s historic elections, declaring “we are the change” and promising to lift the country out of its economic crisis.

In a swipe at his closest rival Imran Khan, whose party conceded defeat overall but looked set to capture some 40 seats to become the nation’s second largest party, Mr Sharif also claimed to have captured the youth mandate.

As counting continued into early this morning, Mr Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) looked set to win around 110 seats, leaving him the task of cobbling together a coalition of independents and smaller parties in order to secure the 137 seats required to form government.
