KARACHI / ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AA) - After three days of counting, Pakistan's election commission released on Sunday the final results of the parliamentary elections held on Feb. 8.

Independent candidates, most of them allied to Imran Khan’s party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, won 101 seats of the National Assembly, which has 336 seats (266 directly elected, 60 reserved for women, and 10 for religious minorities). These seats are distributed among parties according to the ratio of seats they have won.

Ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) got 75 seats, while Bilawal Bhutto Zardari's Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) grabbed 54.
