Pakistani ex-PM Nawaz Sharif has been holding talks with party colleagues on forming a government, after claiming victory in parliamentary elections.

 

Unofficial results suggest a big lead for Sharif's Muslim League, though he may need support to govern.

 

Former cricketer Imran Khan, who could be the main opposition leader, said he was pleased with the high turnout but disappointed about reports of rigging.

 

US President Barack Obama and India's prime minister congratulated Sharif.
