Close competition between candidates affiliated to Imran Khan
The latest results of the counting of votes in the general elections in Pakistan until 1:00 this Friday, 20 December local time, have determined the assignment of 70 seats in the National Assembly of this country, according to which, the candidates affiliated to Imran Khan's party have 24 seats, and the people's party has 24 seats. Kersi and the Muslim League Nawaz party have won 18 seats. The counting of election votes continues.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - International Service: Meanwhile, this Friday morning, Gohar Ali Khan, the head of Imran Khan's party (Justice Movement), has claimed the lead in Pakistan's elections and the formation of the next government.
According to IRNA correspondent from Pakistan, Gohar Ali Khan, who has won a seat in the National Assembly based on unofficial reports in his constituency, wrote on his user account on X: "The Movement of Justice Party, the future government of Pakistan, as well as the state governments in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa." 
Gohar Ali Khan, who replaced Pakistan's ousted Prime Minister Imran Khan as the head of the Movement for Justice earlier this month after his resignation, warned: "We will never allow efforts to change the election results to succeed."
He also stated during an interview with the Pakistani Geo News channel that his party has not made a decision to form an alliance with other parties. The head of the party, Imran Khan, also rejected any alliance with the two traditional parties of Pakistan, Muslim League Nawaz and People's Party.
Some other senior officials of Imran Khan's party also claimed to have won the majority of seats in the National Assembly of Pakistan since last night and at the same time accused the officials of the polling stations of disrupting the counting of votes and facilitating fraud in the elections.
Earlier, Imran Khan, the deposed Prime Minister of Pakistan, in a message addressed to his fans that was published on his official user account on the X social network, emphasized: The people of Pakistan made their point clearly by participating in the elections, and as we have said many times; No force can defeat an idea whose time has come.
Unofficial reports of Pakistani news channels also indicate the unexpected result of counting the votes of this country's elections and that the independent candidates affiliated to Imran Khan's party are leading the elections.
But on the other hand, the Muslim League Nawaz led by the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, claimed the lead in winning seats in the National Assembly and the Punjab State Assembly.
According to IRNA, Senator Mohammad Ishaq Dar, the head of the ruling faction in the Senate of Pakistan and the head of the election headquarters of the Muslim League Nawaz, wrote in his official user account on X: "Based on the data collected in the election headquarters of this party and the publicly available results, the Muslim League Nawaz has emerged as the largest political party in the National Assembly and a party with a clear majority in the Punjab State Assembly.
At the same time, he asked to avoid premature and biased speculations about the fate of the elections and added that we are waiting for the full official results to be announced by the Election Commission.
The Election Commission of Pakistan started to announce the official results of the counting of votes from the election constituencies 10 hours after the end of the deadline, but at the same time, Pakistani news channels also published the unofficial results of counting the votes of the elections.
The headlines of most Pakistani newspapers this morning, both in Urdu and English language, were devoted to the brilliance of the candidates of the Movement for Justice Party, who are "independent candidates" according to the electoral laws of this country.
Prominent political figures of Pakistan such as former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, former President Asif Ali Zardari, Chairman of the People's Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, former Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Gohar Ali Khan, Chairman of the Justice Movement Party have succeeded in leading other competitors in their constituencies.
However, the final result has not yet been announced by the Election Commission of Pakistan, and this situation has caused concern among the parties in this country.
