The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has become the largest political party in the National Assembly, with its tally rising to 123 seats. This significant increase is due to the allocation of 19 reserved seats for women and one for minorities, which were previously denied to the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC).

The PML-N initially won 75 general seats and was joined by nine independents. With the allocation of 19 reserved seats for women and four reserved seats for minorities, the number of PML-N seats has now reached 123.

The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has also seen an increase in its tally, rising to 73 seats from 68. The PPP initially won 54 general seats and was allocated 12 seats reserved for minorities and two for women. After the allocation of four more seats reserved for women and one for minorities, the number of PPP lawmakers now comes to 73.

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) has 22 members in the National Assembly, while the Jamaat-e-Islami (JUI-F) has 11. The PML-Q has five, and Istehkam-i-Pakistan Party has four MNAs.The elections did not take place in one National Assembly constituency, while the result of one constituency has been withheld.

In the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, all three political parties clinched more reserved seats than general ones. The Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), which could get only seven general seats, has been allocated 10 reserved seats for women. Likewise, the PML-N, which won six general seats, has been given eight reserved seats. PPP, which bagged four general seats, has six reserved seats.

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has finally published key post-election documents, including Forms 45, 46, 48, and 49, on its website after a delay of around a month. Under the law, the ECP was supposed to release these documents within 14 days after the elections.
