Imran Khan accepts JC report over 2013 poll rigging


CHITRAL: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan has said he accepts the Judicial Commission report into allegations of election rigging but he would be able to comment on Friday after reading the finding of the panel.


Speaking to media on Thursday, Khan said he had from day one said he would accept the report of the commission whatever conclusion it comes to.

“I would now see the report as it has been issued on the internet,” said Khan, adding that Mian Nawaz Sharif was “a lucky man to have read the commission report”.

The PTI chairman, who camped outside the parliament house with thousands of protesters last year against what he said poll rigging in the general election of 2013, said the report should have been sent to both the parties at the same time.

The former cricket hero further said though as many as 21 political parties had spoken of election rigging, PTI was the single party that fought the case.
