Chief of the Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has reportedly alleged rigging in the elections after accepting defeat while also indicating that his party would sit in the opposition benches of the National Assembly.

Khan held the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) responsible for failing to stop the alleged rigging of polls in certain areas.

Moreover, PTI's spokesperson, Dr Shireen Mazari, told media personnel after meeting Imran Khan that he had authorised his party to issue a white paper on the alleged rigging of polls in some constituencies.

Khan has also said his party would form the next government in Khyber Paktunkhwa province after being elected into parliament, where his main opponent conceded defeat.
