"A resolution nominating Imran Khan as our candidate for prime minister has been passed unanimously", the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf's (Movement for Justice, or PTI) senior leader, Shah Qureshi, told the media after a party meeting.
The meeting was taken into confidence about the formation of the government and it unanimously chose to nominate Imran Khan as party nominee for the Prime Minister, according to PTI sources.
Qureshi's views were echoed by party spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry, who claimed that the PTI now has "the backing of 174 candidates in NA".
Sharing details of election results, an ECP official said PTI was leading with 115 seats while PML-N secured 64 seats while PPP secured 43 seats, according to reports in The Express Tribune. "Now a great responsibility has come on my shoulders".
