Update : 09 Feb 2024, 21:17

Votes are being counted after yesterday's general election which was marred by the suspension of mobile phone services and violent unrest. 

Three-time former leader Nawaz Sharif has claimed his party is the largest - despite independents backed by Imran Khan leading the count. 

Sharif goes on to say that he respects the mandate of the independent candidates, many of whom are loyal to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) the party of disqualified and jailed ex-PM Imran Khan.

He says he invites them to "sit with us". "All parties should get together to form a government," he adds.
