MMA chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the religious parties’ alliance will not accept a martial law in the guise of a civilian ruler.

The MMA has given a call for countrywide protests on Friday (today). The religious parties’ alliance has also summoned an All Parties Conference in Islamabad. Other parties such as the PML-N, PPP and MQM have also expressed reservations over the election results.

“We will organise a movement after convincing all the parties,” said Maulana Fazlur Rehman at a press conference. “How can we accept such a mandate and rule? We have never accepted the rule of tyranny.”

Maulana Fazl said he will not fall for sweet talk. “We have heard many such speeches,” he said. “But principles remain the same and will be the basis for decisions. This is a martial law in the guise of a civilian ruler.”

The PML-N will decide on its future strategy at the All Parties Conference while the PPP has summoned a session at Bilawal House on Friday. MQM’s Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui congratulated the PTI chief but demanded an inquiry into rigging.

“Why were polling agents driven out?” asked PML-N leader Marriyum Aurangzeb at a press conference in Lahore. “We will make an important announcement regarding protests at the All Parties Conference.”

On the other hand, Imran Khan offered in his first speech after the election that his government will help initiate inquiries in all the constituencies where rigging is feared. The Election Commission, meanwhile, said that it received no major complaints regarding rigging.

The PTI has emerged victorious on 122 NA seats, according to unofficial results. In Karachi, PTI bagged the Azizabad and Lyari seats in a major blow to the MQM and PPP. The PTI has bagged 14 out of 21 NA seats in Karachi while the MQM and PPP have secured four and three seats, respectively. Mustafa Kamal’s PSP was unable to win on any seat.
