The PML-N president also criticised PTI chief Imran Khan for "not producing enough electricity" in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province despite boastful claims before 2013 elections while the PML-N government in center produced thousands of megawatts and steered the country out of energy crisis. The PPP could emerge as a coalition kingmaker if no party wins a majority, as many expect.

"If we have to make a coalition with either of the two main parties, then it means we can't bring about any major reforms", said Khan, who as captain led Pakistan to victory in the 1992 Cricket World Cup.

Analysts say Khan, a famous former cricket player, enjoys the backing of military, which has ruled Pakistan directly and indirectly for most of its 71-year history. Benazir's 29-year-old son, PPP's Prime Ministerial face, is a first- timer, contesting from two seats, both in Sindh.

Khan is running on a platform that calls for creating more jobs and housing for poor, reducing chronic power outages, improving education and health, and cracking down on the rampant corruption.

According to the Election Commission, about 3,675 candidates are in the race for 272 National Assembly seats and about 8,895 for 577 general seats of the four provincial assemblies. After the results, 27 winning independent candidates joined Sharif's party to give it a majority.
