Update : 09 Feb 2024, 18:12

Candidates supporting former prime minister Imran Khan have won the most seats in Pakistan's assembly election with just over half the constituencies reporting, according to the country's election commission.

The body said candidates linked to Khan's PakistanTehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party had so far secured 48 seats.

The PTI candidates ran as independents as both the party and Khan, who is in jail, were barred from running.

Broadcaster GEO News has projected that Khan's independents have so far won 74 seats.

Those candidates from former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party have taken 42 seats.

The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the son of assassinated premier Benazir Bhutto, also got 34.
