PTI to form govt in center, 3 provinces: Fawad Chaudhary

"Make no mistake. We will be watching what the International Monetary Fund does", Pompeo said.

"We were successful and we were given a mandate", Khan said during a live broadcast, adding there was "no politician victimisation" in the contest.

An official of PTI also termed Modi's telephone call to Khan on his victory a welcoming sign to begin a new chapter in relations between the two countries. However, the party fell short of the 137-majority mark.

In a later press conference, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said his party also rejected the election results, but vowed it would try to convince the other parties to participate in the parliamentary process.

The country was under direct military rule for more than half its 71-year existence, and the army still retains huge power and influence. Khattak is considered to be close to Khan since school days as both studied in the same Atchison College in Lahore. The military needs money and China has provided money and Trump has largely cut them off.

His tone was so measured that few were familiar with it, at least given his language and mannerism since he refused to accept the 2013 election results, which gave the Nawaz Sharif-led Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) a huge win. Michael Gahler, the chief observer of the European Union Election Observation Mission in Pakistan, said on Friday the election was negatively affected by the political environment amid media restrictions and a problematic vote count. Living away from Pakistan has made me aware of the problems snuffing out the country already marred with political instability and I truly wish to see it getting in the news for the right reasons; it pains whenever I find people associating it with terrorism and bloodshed. "In all this hue and cry, we didn't notice there is another Pakistan there that wanted this change", she told AFP.

Analysts had said it should be straightforward for Khan to form a coalition with independents and small Islamist parties, as they know he is favoured by the powerful military.

Khan claimed victory in a wide-ranging address to the nation Thursday.

"If India's leadership is ready, we are ready to improve ties with India".

Khan shot to global fame with on-field success and off-field flamboyance.

Former Pakistani cricket star Imran Khan's party Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) has won victory in the country's general elections and is now in a strong position to form the central government, according to the complete preliminary results announced by the Election Commission of Pakistan on Saturday. "We want a balanced relation with the US".
