However, Nawaz Sharif did not disclose the exact number of seats his party had secured as the counting process was still underway for the remaining seats out of the 265 that were contested.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), led by Nawaz Sharif, has secured 42 seats according to the latest count published by the election panel. However, this falls significantly short of the 133 seats required to form a government independently.
