Opposition parties in Pakistan reject result of just concluded elections & demand free, fair re-election

Opposition parties in Pakistan have unanimously rejected the results of the just-concluded elections and demanded a transparent and free and fair re-election. 

An all party meeting said the general elections were massively rigged and the results were manipulated. The conference, chaired by PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif and Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA) President Maulana Fazlur Rehman, called to devise a joint strategy over alleged rigging. 

Addressing the media after the meeting in Islamabad, Rehman said, political parties do not consider this election to be the mandate of the people. Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) did not to attend the meeting saying its leadership will devise its own strategy regarding alleged poll irregularities. However, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari demanded the resignation of the chief election commissioner over failure to conduct transparent polls.

The United States has expressed concern over the participation of terrorist-affiliated people in Pakistan's elections. In a statement, State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said the US has deep reservations over the participation of terrorist-affiliated individuals in the elections. 

About the conduct of the election, she said that Washington shared the concerns of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan on freedoms of expression and association during the campaign period.
