On August 3, the NAB asked Khan to appear before it for questioning.

The election commission halted the notification for Khan's victory from two major constituencies - Lahore and Islamabad - but notification for his success from Mianwali, Bannu, and Karachi was issued "conditionally". However, it was later clarified that the ECP held back notifications of only two constituencies, The News reported. Mehru Hayat, daughter of Imran's wife Bushra Maneka, and her friend Farah Khan congratulated the prime minister designate for the win in elections and expressed contentment over the party's leadership and manifesto.

However, the notification of Mr Khan's success has been withheld as a case pertaining to violation to ECP's code of conduct is being heard against him.

Pakistan went to polls on July 25 and the counting of votes began soon thereafter in the evening, which was marred by tedious counting and allegations of rigging by major political parties, including the PML-N and PPP.
