Imran Khan: 'Pakistan will never be the same again'

Former Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif has claimed victory in general elections with projections based on partial results suggesting a big lead for his Muslim League party.

Former cricketer Imran Khan, leader of the Movement of Justice party, sent a message of congratulations to Mr Sharif.

Speaking from his hospital bed in Lahore, where he is recuperating following a fall during a campaign rally, he said: "The democratic process has moved forward."

Mr Khan looks to be on course to win a big victory in a constituency in the city of Peshawar, capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
