ISLAMABAD: The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has emerged as the largest party in the Cantonment Board Elections 2021 by securing 63 seats, followed by the PML-N who came close and finished second place, bagging 59 seats from across the country, according to unofficial results.

As per the unofficial and unverified results, the independent candidates also won big in the election as they secured 52 seats in total.

Among other Opposition parties, the PPP won 17, the Jamaat-e-Islami seven and the Awami National Party (ANP) two. Of the allied parties, MQM won 10, whereas Balochistan Awami Party secured two.

PTI bags KP, PML-N wins most seats in Punjab

PML-N won big in Punjab, bagging 51 seats, managing only five in KP, three in Sindh and none in Balochistan.

PPP was surprisingly unable to defeat PTI in Sindh, instead tying with them for 14 seats. The remaining three seats were won in KP, meaning none were won in either Punjab or Balochistan.

Furthermore, 83 candidates of the banned Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan also contested the polls.

Of the candidates vying for the total 219 wards across 42 cantonment boards, seven candidates were already elected unopposed. Therefore, the race was held for 212 seats.

In addition, there was no competition in four wards of Kamra, none in one ward of Rawalpindi and none in one ward of Pano Aqil.
