Islamabad, Pakistan

What:

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has scheduled a protest rally against the alleged rigging of general elections on 06 April in Islamabad.

Why:

The PTI alleges that the government led by Shehbaz Sharif unfairly acquired their electoral mandate in the February 8th polls, suggesting that the results were manipulated to benefit the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

So What:

  • Heightened security measures are expected at government buildings, transport hubs, offices of political parties, and public squares. Prohibitory measures like imposition of section 144, traffic restrictions, and suspension of internet and mobile connectivity can be expected in case of escalation of protests.
  • Transport disruptions and delays can be anticipated due to protestors gathering on the roads.
  • Escalation of protests between PTI supporters and police authorities cannot be ruled out.

Outlook:

A significant turnout is anticipated for the upcoming public gathering organized by the PTI party. The PTI has been staging a series of protests against the outcomes of the general election and the coalition between the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). Clashes and arrests occurred during nationwide protests by the PTI on March 10th. Further demonstrations by the PTI are expected to persist, focusing on alleged electoral irregularities and demanding the release of PTI founder Imran Khan. Organizations are advised to stay informed about the political landscape and planned protests, and to develop appropriate contingency plans.
