LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz chief Nawaz Sharif and brother Shahbaz claimed victory in general elections of Pakistan, announcing that the elder Sharif would stake claim for prime ministership.

His claim comes as PML-N  is set to emerge as the biggest party but still short of a clear majority.

Analysts say that PML-N will form the next government.

Speaking to their supporters outside their model town residence Nawaz Sharif thanked the nation for reposing trust in him.

The PML-N chief has so far won two National Assembly seats - NA-120 Lahore, NA-68 Sargodha.

Nawaz Sharif has remained prime minister two times in 1990 and 1997 but both of his government wre prematurely dismissed, once by then president Ghulam Ishaq Khan and then his second government was ousted in 1999 in a military coup by former military ruler Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf.
