The father of Pakistan's nuclear bomb, Abdul Qadeer Khan, has dissolved his political party after it failed to win a single seat in the May 11 elections.
Khan, 77, who is revered at home as a hero for building the Muslim world's first atomic bomb, had formed his party, Tehreek-e-Tahafuz Pakistan (TTP) or Save Pakistan Movement in July last year.
"Yes, I have dissolved my party," Khan told AFP.
His party, which fielded 111 candidates for different seats of the national and four provincial assemblies, failed to win even a single seat.
