National players' interest in it really shows Pakistan a flourishing democracy.

Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, who looks to emerge victorious after when the results are announced as per the Pakistan media reports, is finding support from his former teammates who have thrown their weight behind the PTI leader.

The prime minister-designate of Pakistan's Muslim League party pledges to emulate Mahathir in developing Pakistan.

Khan, however, is wary of governing with the established parties.

"It was in your leadership skip Imran Khan that we became world champions in 1992".

Many PML-N candidates have switched loyalties before the polls, either joining the PTI or running as independents.

Analysts say Khan, a famous former cricket player, enjoys the backing of military, which has ruled Pakistan directly and indirectly for most of its 71-year history.

The divisive campaign is likely to complicate any coalition negotiations after the vote, if they are necessary. Cricket legend Javed Miandad said, "Cast vote to someone who you trust to".

To gain a majority, a party needs 137 of the 272 elected National Assembly seats.

An additional 10 seats are reserved for minorities and 60 for women, which are filled based on proportional representation of the 272 general seats. All parties have claimed that they will grab most of the seats.

Sharif and daughter Maryam Nawaz, who was also found guilty, returned to face their prison sentences.

"It is not easy to predict which party will form the government".

"Even in this prison". He said he sat there for five hours but was not heard.

Others cited the improvements in infrastructure under the PML-N in the sprawling city in the east of the country, vowing to stick by the party hit by several corruption convictions ahead of the election.

"After the election, we will fight", said PML-N supporter Aftab Anjum, 67.

Sharif, 68, was removed by presidential decree in 1993, in a military coup in 1999, and past year by the Supreme Court, which ordered his corruption trial.

However in another poll, Sharif's party tops another poll with 26 percent compared to 25 percent for Khan's PTI.
