Election Commission secretary Babar Yaqoob on Thursday said that complete election results of the 2018 general elections will be announced today.

"We have received 82 percent of the result from across the country. It's being compiled and will hopefully be announced today," he told reporters.

He said that the election was held peacefully, with an "impressive" turnout and a good ratio of women voters.

"Most of the complaints we received were regarding procedural matters, not of rigging or vote manipulation," he said, while replying to a question about rigging claims.

The ECP secretary strongly rebutted a viral video showing bogus voting by some women.

"The video that has gone viral on social media is from the 2013 elections. The stamp and ballet shown in that video were not used in this election," he explained.

While the election has been marred by allegations of rigging, PTI chairman Imran Khan, in his address to the nation today, called the election the "most transparent" in the country's history.
