Lahore , Feb 19 (ANI): The President of the PML-Q, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, has accepted his partys defeat in the February 18 general elections and added that poll results would be accepted gracefully.

He asked PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif to fulfil his promise of restoring the judiciary.

Congratulating the winning candidates, Shujaat said the PML-Q is ready to sit in the opposition.

He also offered to extend the PML-Qs cooperation at the national level, but said allegations that President Pervez Musharraf had rigged the polls had proved to be baseless.
