Benazir Bhutto says Pervez Musharraf not offering a “level playing-field”.
In the two houses of parliament, Musharraf won 252 of 257 votes, and also won the most votes in three of four provincial assemblies, officials said.
Ahmad told Al Jazeera that there was a good chance the supreme court would not endorse Musharraf’s victory.
Musharraf has been in conflict with the supreme court since he attempted to sack Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, the chief justice.
Earlier, anti-government protests, led by lawyers, who have spearheaded a campaign against Musharraf in recent months, took place in Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Quetta.

Police fired tear gas to disperse lawyers pelting rocks at the North West Frontier Province assembly, and the lawyers also threw a burning effigy of the president on top of an armoured police vehicle.
Before election officials announced the result, Wajiha Mehdi, a lawyer and associate of Chaudhry, told Al Jazeera she believed that any win for Musharraf would be unconstitutional.
“The people of Pakistan are now going to speak. They have had enough.”
However, Amir said it was unlikely that the supreme court would overturn Musharraf’s victory.
If his re-election is confirmed, the president has promised to leave his position as head of the army by November 15 and be sworn in as a civilian leader.
“Pakistan needs a military leader who can control both civil and possible military extremism”

Opposition parties have vowed to stage protests over Musharraf’s decision not to step down from his army post ahead of the election.
But Musharraf had averted a walk-out by Bhutto’s PPP by granting her amnesty from corruption charges, paving the way for a power-sharing deal between the two politicians.
