A senior aide to Pakistan’s jailed former Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Saturday their party would try to form a government as it had won the most seats in Thursday’s general election.

Interim party chief Gohar Ali Khan called on all institutions in Pakistan to respect the party’s mandate, telling a press conference in Islamabad that if complete results were not released by Saturday night, the party would hold a peaceful protest on Sunday.
