Islamabad: Former Pakistani cricketer Imran Khan on Thursday claimed victory in his country's parliamentary elections, promising a new Pakistan following a vote that was marred by allegations of fraud and militant violence.

The first reaction came in from none other than his ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith who took to twitter to sing praises of the father of her kids. "22 years later, after humiliations, hurdles and sacrifices, my sons’ father is Pakistan’s next PM. It’s an incredible lesson in tenacity, belief & refusal to accept defeat. The challenge now is to remember why he entered politics in the 1st place. Congratulations @ImranKhanPTI," she wrote on her Twitter handle.
