All TV channels were predicting that Imran Khan would upset the calculations of all other major parties. Such hype was created that it seems it was only a matter of time that the former cricket captain of the country would also lead the nation.
But as results started coming on late Saturday night, it became clear that electorate reposed their faith in the Muslim League. The PPP suffered heavily. Tehrik-e-Insaf did perform well in certain regions and it may become the major player by the next election.
The Awami National Party (ANP) leaders accepted that they had been rejected. The Pakistan Tahrik-e-Insaf (PTI) had a good news though. Apart from getting substantial seats in the National Assembly, the party was heading to form the government in Khyber Pakhtunwa region.
