PMLN, MMA to discuss 'electoral rigging' in APC meetings today
ISLAMABAD  - Rejecting the results of recently concluded elections, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) have called an All Parties Conference (APC) later today.

The provisional poll results projected Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leading the race with the cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan easily becoming the Prime Minister of the country.

"This result is not the public's mandate, in fact, the nation's mandate was robbed," Rehman said.

Moreover, PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif had alleged that the election was rigged and his party will strongly protest the results in the National Assembly.

'PML-N would also take up legal proceedings against the poll results as we reserve the right to challenge the election results,' he said in a hurriedly called press conference.

On the other hand, the PM-in-waiting, Imran Khan had expressed in his victory speech that he would welcome any scrutiny regarding the allegations of rigging.
