Smaller political parties badly thrashed in the elections turned up for the meeting; However, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Pakistan did not attend it
A multi-party meeting which included the Pakistan Muslims League-Nawaz (PML-N) today rejected the result of the general polls alleging rigging and demanded a "transparent" re-election, threatening country-wide protests.
PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazal chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman jointly presided here the 'All Parties Conference', called to devise a joint strategy over the alleged rigging in the July 25 polls.
Mostly smaller political parties badly thrashed in the elections turned up for the meeting. The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Pakistan did not attend it.
Rehman told media after the meeting that it was "not an election but selection" and the results were unanimously rejected by the parties attending the moot.
"It has been decided to reject the elections of July 25 because these elections are not based on the mandate of the people but the people have been robbed of their mandate," he said.
