PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif is set for a third term as Pakistan's Prime Minister as his party took a massive lead over its rivals in the general election, according to provisional results from across the country. Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League declared victory on Saturday night amidst violence and re-polling followed by reports of rigging votes in the landmark elections that were held in Pakistan. Trends show that PML-N won 126 seats out of 272 while Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-E-Insaaf (PTI) conceded defeat after bagging around 35 seats.

Street celebrations started late at night after Sharif addressed his supporters and asked to pray for an absolute majority. Sharif registered victory from Sargodha constituency in Punjab Province.
