Islamabad: PTI chairman Imran Khan has said his party would accept the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government if a judicial commission probe clears last year's general elections which he claims were rigged.

Delivering a speech in Islamabad Friday, the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief said he would shutdown Faisalabad Dec 8 unless a judicial commission is formed to look into the elections, Dawn online reported Saturday.

"If the government wants to avert the shutting down of the major cities as well as the country, it must form a judicial commission to probe rigging in the May 2013 elections," he said

"Unless the terms of references for the judicial commission are not finalised, Plan C (to shutdown Faisalabad) will remain intact," he added.

"If the judicial commission clears the government, I will accept it," he said. "But if rigging is proved, the government will have to go," the report quoted Khan as saying.
