PTI, Independent candidates dominate historic KP-FATA elections
Peshawar: Ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf clinched four while Independent candidates grabbed five seats in the first-ever elections for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial assembly from the merged tribal areas, the Election Commission of Pakistan stated on Sunday.

Historic scenes were witnessed in the merged tribal districts on Saturday as millions of voters headed to polling stations to vote for their favourite candidates.
