BREAKING: PAKISTAN – Millionaire Jemima Goldsmith’s Ex-husband International Playboy & cricketer Imran Khan claims victory in Election
LONDON UK. Former cricketer and international playboy Imran Khan has claimed victory in Pakistan’s just concluded election, amid accusations of vote rigging by rival parties.
In a television address, he said: “We were successful and we were given a mandate.”
His PTI party is still expected to fall short of an overall majority, so it would have to seek coalition partners in order to form a government. Campaigning has been marred by violence. On voting day a bomb killed 31 people at a polling station.
Mr Khan, the charismatic patrician who captained Pakistan to a World Cup victory in 1992, has long shed his celebrity playboy image and has recently faced accusations that his election challenge was benefiting from military interference in the nuclear-armed republic.
An official confirmation of the vote is still to come.
