Former cricketer Imran Khan claims Pakistan election victory

He’s been a star cricketer and a socialite.  Now he’s the new Prime Minister of Pakistan. Imran Khan used his PTI party platform to campaign for an end to corruption and dynastic politics in the country but his opponents say he’s had to rely on the military for support and there was ballot rigging in yesterday vote.

The PTI victory has not been conclusive though. It’s likely they’ll have to look for coalition partners to govern.
