Who will form the government in Pakistan?

Pakistan’s national and provincial assembly elections were held last Thursday in Pakistan amid various uncertainties. On this day, out of 266 seats of the country’s National Assembly, 265 seats were voted.
The results of 245 constituencies were declared till Friday night. It showed that independent candidates of Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e Insaaf (PTI) won 98 seats, Nawaz Sharif-led Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) won 69 seats and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari-led Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) won 51 seats. .
And no party got a single majority in this election. As a result, whichever party forms the government, they will have to form a coalition. That is, the coalition government is going to come to power in Pakistan. But it remains to be seen which party’s leadership alliance will be formed – and whether the alliance will be formed with PTI’s independent candidates who got the highest number of seats in the polls. According to Pakistan’s electoral rules, a party can form a government as a majority if it gets 134 seats alone.

Pakistani political analyst Zaigham Khan said the picture that could be seen is a coalition government. The alliance will include all political parties except PTI. It will include the country’s two major parties PPP and PMALN. MQM, Jamaat-e-Islami and others will be with it.
The second scenario, which is less likely but possible, is that the PPP joins the PTI and forms the government.
He also said that most people in Pakistan do not trust the legitimacy of the next government due to allegations of vote rigging. And this matter will affect the economic and political stability of Pakistan.
