The party of ex-Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif says it will not boycott the country's new parliament despite reservations over the election results.
 
Former cricketer Imran Khan, whose PTI party has a clear lead in results reported so far, has claimed victory.
 
On Friday, a senior leader of Sharif's PML-N party said the outcome of the parliamentary vote would be accepted for the sake of democracy.
 
The party alleged vote rigging had taken place during Wednesday's poll.
 
On Friday, a European Union monitoring team said the election campaign featured a "lack of equality".
 
"Although there were several legal provisions aimed at ensuring a level playing field, we have concluded that there was a lack of equality and opportunity," chief observer Michael Gahler told reporters.
 
"Candidates with large political appeal and financial means - the so-called 'electables' - often dominated the campaign."
 
Khan, 65, has faced accusations that his election challenge benefited from military interference, a claim both he and the army denied.
 
On Thursday the charismatic leader - who captained Pakistan to a World Cup victory in 1992 but has long since shed his celebrity playboy image - said the vote had been the "clearest, fairest election Pakistan has ever had".
