Pakistan media reports that unofficial results suggest that the wife of Pakistan's former prime minister who stepped down over a corruption inquiry has won a key seat in Lahore.

Kulsoom Nawaz stood in place of her husband Nawaz Sharif, who was disqualified from office in July.

Local media reports that she won 61,254 votes, 14,188 more than her nearest rival.

The vote was seen by both the ruling PML-N party and the opposition as a referendum on the Supreme Court's decision to disqualify Sharif.
