ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has been granted permission to hold a rally in the federal capital on Saturday, however, it listed a plethora of conditions for holding the rally including warnings to stay away from the Red Zone and of turning the protest into a sit-in.

The permission was granted on Thursday evening by Islamabad District Magistrate Irfan Memon following a request filed by PTI’s Central Secretariat President Ali Nawaz Awan.

In the order, Memon notes that “the undersigned allows you to hold the gathering for one day only (2nd July, 2022) at Parade Ground, Islamabad (as mentioned in your application).”

Noting that the permission was granted in light of directives from the Supreme Court over holding public rallies, he stated that per the direction, a “mechanism may be worked out with the political parties as to holding rallies and the days and venues thereof.”
