Sharif attempts to form a government in Pakistan

Pakistani cricketer, turned politician Imran Kahn has welcomed the solid turnout  in the country’s election as a step forward to democracy.

His public remarks come 17 hours after his main rival, and former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, declared victory.

Projections based on unofficial results suggest a big lead for Mr Sharif’s Muslim League and he has started work on putting together a government.

Mr Kahn has congratulated the entire nation for braving the polls, which were marred by violence and attacks from the Taliban.
