Nawaz Sharif backs off, PTI voters troll PMLN voters

A large number of PMLN supporters were dejected and depressed with how the events unfolded, forcing Nawaz Sharif to step back from the premiership.

As per the latest development, PMLN Supremo Nawaz Sharif has nominated Shehbaz Sharif for the premiership and Maryam Nawaz for the Chief Minister of Punjab post.

Voters and supporters of PTI have flourished on social media with hilarious memes and commentary targeting the followers and supporters of PMLN. During election campaigns, Nawaz Sharif was hailed as the party’s candidate for premiership.

However, with the unforeseen election results and PTI-backed candidates leading the National Assembly of Pakistan, PMLN failed to secure a simple majority in the assembly.

They are forced to seek coalition partners to form their government. Meanwhile, they are also hoping to rope in the independent candidates to reach the number game to form their government. Difficulties aggravated for PMLN after PPP refused to ally with them in the federal government. They, however, agreed to support Shehbaz Sharif for the premiership.

Capitalizing on this opportunity, PTI supports and voters trolled PMLN supporters mercilessly on social media. PTI claims PMLN has won only 17 seats of the National Assembly and claims that they lost many seats through rigging.

The losing candidates of the PTI have filed petitions on alleged rigging.  The National Assembly has a total of 336 seats, with 60 reserved for women and 10 for religious minorities.

These are proportionately distributed among parties according to their election performance. Any party that wants its leader as prime minister will need 169 votes in the House.

A party requires 169 seats to form the government with a simple majority, which is currently impossible for any of the mainstream parties without the support of smaller groups.

PTI has decided to ally with Majlis-e-Wahdat-ul-Muslimeen in the National Assembly. With the bat symbol taken away from them before elections, PTI-backed independent candidates need to gather under one party in the parliament.
