Pakistan election in disarray as incumbent rejects result, army-backed Imran Khan gives victory speech
A day after going to the polls, Pakistan is in a state of confusion after the leading candidate announced victory and the results were rejected by the incumbent. The Election Commission of Pakistan, an independent body, has named a software breakdown as the cause of the delay in results. Nearly every party, aside from the leading PTI party, has alleged that their agents were barred from polling stations, preventing them from monitoring the elections. Aside for manipulation concerns, the elections were also marred by a series of violent clashes and suicide bombs that killed dozens.
