LAHORE – PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif on Friday claimed that his party had emerged “single-largest party” in general election 2024 and invited all winning candidates and political parties to sit down and form a coalition government to drive Pakistan out of current crises.

“We have to sit together for the betterment of Pakistan,” he stressed, adding that all politicians, parliament and armed forces should play their role for the prosperity of the country.

His party has so far secured 63 National Assembly seats, according to unofficial and unconfirmed results. 

Independent candidates are leading with 91 seats while PPP is at the third spot with 48 seats.

Nawaz Sharif further said that his party had also secured majority in Punjab. "We will serve you in Center and Punjab."

"Pakistan cannot afford any mess at this juncture. We have sit together to address the problems."

On the other hand, PTI has ruled out forming coalition government with PML-N and PPP.
