Down But Not Out? This is Strange

PPP, PML-Q get most votes

KARACHI: Although there is a great difference in the number of seats won in the National Assembly (NA), the Pakistan Muslim League Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q) has emerged second to the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) on account of votes received. According to a ‘Party-Wise Total Vote Bank’ sheet compiled by the Election Commission of Pakistan, the PPP has secured the largest number of votes in the 2008 general elections. The PPP received more than 15 million votes throughout the country for National Assembly seats. The PML-Q came second, securing around eight million votes. According to the sheet compiled Monday, the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) came third, receiving around 6.8 million votes. Independent candidates secured fourth position, with around 3.7 million votes cast in their favour, while the Muttahida Qaumi Movement was fifth after receiving approximately 2.5 million votes. It is pertinent to mention that the results of, at least, 8 NA seats have yet to be announced, as the results are either pending or elections were not held in the constituencies. razzak abro
