Pakistan ex-PM Nawaz Sharif's party leading in elections

ISLAMABAD, May 11 - Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML- N), led by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, is leading in the general elections, the initial results suggested late Saturday night.

The PML-N is in lead with 115 National Assembly seats than its arch rivals the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
Sharif's party is ahead mostly in Punjab, the country's most populated province and also the stronghold of the PML-N. Nawaz Sharif himself is leading with huge margin from his rivals on two seats, one in Lahore, his home constituency and the other in Sargodha, a main city in Punjab province.
The trend shows that PML-N is likely to get simple majority for formation of the government in center. But the party will need support of other parties for a comfortable majority and a stable government.
PTI, led by the cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan, is emerging is the second largest party with 37 seats. PTI chief, who is contesting on four National Assembly seats, is leading on all seats.
PPP is placed third in the race with lead in 33 National Assembly seats, mostly in southern Sindh province. The PPP candidates are also showing good results in southern parts of Punjab.
Independent candidates are on upper hand on 22 seats across Pakistan while Jamiat ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) party is in lead on 11 seats. JUI-F is leading mainly in northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and southwestern Balochistan.
The Muttahida Qaumi Movement or MQM is ahead of its rival on eight seats in the port city of Karachi.
Pakistan Muslim League (PML-Q) party is leading on five seats, all in Punjab.
Jamaat-e-Isalmi party is heading to victory on three seats, all in Khyber Pakhutunkhwa, the unofficial results suggest.
The ethnic Pashtoon Awami National Party (ANP), which ruled the Khyber Pakhtukhwa province over the past five year, is not leading in any part of the country.
Out of 272 seats of the 342-member National Assembly, elections were held in 268 constituencies as four National Assembly seats remained uncontested due to death of candidates and poor law and order situation.
Election on special seats for women and minorities will be determined later on the basis of seats the parties will get in general elections.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
