Forty-nine polling stations in Pakistan achieved the impossible -- the votes polled were more than the total number of voters.

Data gathered by Free and Fair Election Network (FAFEN) observers at polling stations have shown voter turnout greater than 100 percent, reported News International.

Pakistan went to the hustings Saturday and unofficial election results show that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz is way ahead of its rivals. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf stood second while the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party is a poor third.

FAFEN called on the Election Commission of Pakistan to put up all polling station data on its website before certifying any final election results in any constituency.

The voter turnout was over 100 percent in at least 49 polling stations out of 8,119 polling stations sampled by FAFEN across Pakistan.

Of these, 32 polling stations with greater than 100 percent turnout were in Punjab, 10 in Sindh, six in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and one in Balochistan.
