Protesters gathered outside the Pakistan High Commission and held a three-hour demonstration in front of the building.
PTI staged a demonstration outside the Pakistan High Commission to make it known that they would not accept the "minus-one formula," which alludes to the party"s suspicion that efforts are being made to bar PTI Chairman Imran Khan from participating in electoral politics.
In response to a request from the party"s central office, the protest in London was timed to coincide with Imran Khan"s speech at a sizable gathering in Gujranwala, where he threatened to launch a new round of agitation if "neutrals" did not take action to hold early elections.
The newly elected PTI office holders, including PTI London President Waqas Sagar, Secretary-General Nabeel Qureshi, Senior-Vice President Taqweem Ahsan, and Youth Secretary Aurangzeb Khan, as well as PTI UK President Imran Khalil, General Secretary Rana Hamid Afzal, and Women Secretary Nasreen Memon, participated in the demonstration in London.
Participants at the demonstration heard remarks from Sahibzada Jahangir, Farzana Mukhtar, Maheen Faisal, Shahid Destageer, Amir Khan, and Adnan Shareef, the literary society"s co-president and membership organiser.
The speakers claimed that they had assembled to express their support for Khan and to make it clear that any attempt to disqualify or remove the PTI leader from the race would be detrimental to Pakistan"s democratic process.
They sang "minus-one formula na manzoor" for three hours outside the Pakistan High Commission while waving signs and placards endorsing their leader.
Khan, according to Waqas Sagar, is a well-liked leader who has consistently respected Pakistan"s legal system.
His track record demonstrates that he has dedicated his life to upholding the rule of law. He has advocated for judicial independence. He cannot possibly consider disrespecting the judiciary, Sagar added.
According to Nabeel Qureshi, Pakistanis rejected the PTI chairman"s ouster from office via a purported American conspiracy and supported him in the face of injustice. He claimed that some individuals had planned a wicked "minus one" scheme against Khan, but "such efforts will be destroyed."
Pakistan was released in 1947, according to Imran Khalil, but it never truly experienced true freedom. He claimed that Khan was now in charge of the "Haqeezi Azadi" movement and that the entire country supported him.
If the party"s leader was found to be ineligible in any of the cases brought against him, Sahibzada Jahangir declared that hunger strikes and demonstrations would take place all over the UK.
"We will go to any lengths to protest, and this will send the international community a very poor signal. Therefore, it"s crucial to avoid taking any action that disqualifies Imran Khan by means other than the electoral process, he stated.
According to Farzana Mukhtar, Pakistan is currently experiencing its worst crisis, and the only way out is through free and fair elections.
No one else will be accepted as the leader of Pakistan, according to Maheen Faisal.
Imran Khan has put up a fight, which is why certain individuals want to remove him from politics, but PTI workers won"t allow such an evil scheme to prevail, she said.
