According the the exit polls, two main parties the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) are heading to win equal number of vote share hinting a hung assembly making the next government unstable and too weak to work for the development of the country.

A exit poll conducted by Herald magazine pointed at the PML-N party will emerge as the single largest party but ill fall short of majority.

The Imran Khan led Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) was close behind with the poll pointing an upset for the ruling Pakistan People’s Party, whose leader is President Asif Ali Zardari.
