He also accused the ‘trio’ of the Election Commission of Pakistan, Pakistan Army and caretaker government of keeping Pakhtun leaders out of the National Assembly and said they all would sit together afterwards to finalise future course of action.

Workers of religio-political parties also took to the streets in Peshawar and other parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Friday to protest against alleged rigging in the general elections held on July 25.

Rallies were organised on the appeal of Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the president of Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA), an alliance of five religio-political parties.
