The shorter but crucial week for the country saw millions of citizens in the country exercising their right to vote on February 8. As per provisional results issued by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), independents, especially those associated with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, were ahead of their rival parties. However, a coalition government is in sight as no party could acquire a simple majority in the election.
