PTI changes protest venue to F9 Park at 6 pm after govt seals red zone

Imran changes protest venue after Rana Sanaullah's warning

Former prime minister Imran Khan has given a “peaceful public protest” call at F9 Park around 6pm against the incumbent Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja and the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

In a tweet on Thursday, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman said he will be addressing the gathering between 7:00-7:30pm.

Imran maintained that the CEC and ECP are in cahoots with the “imported” government and tried a technical knockout against PTI after Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) got routed in the Punjab by-elections “despite support of state machinery and ECP shenanigans.”

The ex-premier highlighted how the coalition government, ECP and CEC are “cowering in fear” about the same happening to entire Pakistan Democratic Movement in the general elections.

It is pertinent to mention that Imran had given a protest call outside the ECP after the latter announced the verdict in the prohibited funding case. Shortly after, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah had said that no one will be allowed to enter the red zone and the security was beefed up around the ECP office with high barricades on Thursday morning.

Earlier on August 3, the PTI chief, during an interview with a private tv channel, had said the “neutrals” had assured him that CEC Raja will stay impartial, and therefore he agreed on the appointment.
