Islamabad, Pakistan:

Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday declared victory in the national elections, saying his political party has emerged as the largest in the vote and will discuss the formation of a coalition government.

Sharif did not reveal how many seats his party had won and counting was still ongoing in the last of the 265 seats that went to the polls.

The latest count released by the election panel showed his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) winning 42 seats, well short of the 133 mark needed to form a government.

Sharif said his deputies would meet other political parties later in the day to discuss forming a coalition government.
