Pakistan's second and third political blocs have agreed to co-operate after elections in which jailed ex-PM Imran Khan's supporters came first. Ex-PM Nawaz Sharif's PMLN and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari's PPP issued a statement saying they planned to work together to bring political stability. If they do form a government, the move is likely to anger Mr Khan's followers.

Are elections won by the person who says they won first?

No, but getting the most votes doesn't mean you get to govern.

Trump proved that to be true.

May do it again.

Elections are not won by a person. Elections are won by a party.

The party with the most seats won gets to choose their Prime Minister.

We know which party is going to be asked to make the Govt. but we do not know who the Prime Minister would be.

Ask the Canadian. He knows the system too.

They could solve that problem so easily.
