Pakistan's Imran Khan on verge of becoming prime minister

Updated : July 26, 2018 08:18 PM IST

Supporters of jailed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who accuse Khan of colluding with the army, said the vote count was rigged and termed it an assault on democracy in a country that has a history of military rule.
In a speech peppered with populist pledges, Khan promised to create jobs for the poor and announced he would turn the palatial prime minister's official residence in the capital into an education facility instead of living in it.
Khan has staunchly denied allegations by PML-N that he is getting help from the military, which has ruled Pakistan for about half of its history and still sets key security and foreign policy.
