After running on vows to address Pakistan’s widespread poverty, confront rampant corruption, and pursue a more “balanced” foreign policy with the nation’s neighbors and the United States, the famous cricket-star-turned politician Imran Khan declared victory on Thursday as his Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party won a projected 120 of the 270 open seats in Pakistan’s parliamentary elections.

“I say this in front of you today… we will run Pakistan in a way in which it has never been run before, deliver the kind of governance never delivered before,” Khan declared in his victory speech.
