Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, the frontrunner in the country's landmark elections, was on Saturday elected to parliament in a town in his Punjab heartland, his party spokesman said.

"Nawaz Sharif has won his seat from a constitency in Sargodha," Pakistan Muslim League-N spokesman Siddiqul Farooq told AFP by telephone.
