PTI-led coalition with MQM, PSP and others

The report expects the PTI to bag 92 seats (34pc) in the National Assembly and eye a 60pc probability of the party forming a coalition government.

PTI-led setup with PPP, MQM, PSP and others

In this case, PTI chairman Imran Khan may have to look towards the Pakistan Peoples Party to shore up the numbers, but the odds of this are low that is 15pc.

PML-N led alliance with PPP, religious parties and independent candidates

The third case suggests PML-N can secure 73 seats (27pc) and in the event that the PTI fails to stitch together an alliance, the party can put forward its own coalition that has a probability of 25pc.
