Former Prime Minister Imran Khan and other incarcerated political figures exercise their voting rights through postal ballots; PTI urges public support in the ongoing elections.
Pakistan Elections 2024: former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, along with other prominent incarcerated political figures, has cast his vote through a postal ballot from Adiala Jail, according to sources. However, Imran Khan’s wife, Bushra Bibi, was unable to participate in the voting process as she was convicted and arrested after the completion of the postal voting procedure.
As Pakistan heads to the polls on Thursday, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has issued an appeal to the public, urging them to remember the party’s founding chairman, Imran Khan. The PTI emphasized that Khan, despite being incarcerated, is fighting to restore the country’s dignity, honor, sovereignty, and ensure the welfare of its people.
PTI Central Information Secretary Raoof Hasan, in a message, highlighted Khan’s dedication to the cause, stating, “As citizens of the country, we have a debt to pay. We must use our vote to change the face of Pakistan by dismantling a rotten system that has cast a vicious stranglehold on the country and its people.” Hasan made this appeal on social media, emphasizing the transformative power of voting.
The PTI’s call to action underscores the urgency and significance of the ongoing elections, with an emphasis on reshaping Pakistan’s political landscape. Raoof Hasan urged voters to bring back the PTI to power and free Imran Khan from captivity, presenting this moment as an opportunity to instigate positive change.
“Nothing should deter you from going to the polling station and using the power of your vote to change Pakistan so that it gets on course to realize the dream of its creation as was visualized by Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah,” Hasan urged, rallying the public to actively participate in shaping the country’s future.
