Judiciary of Pakistan Following allegations of massive vote-rigging in the general electioncricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan 's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf PTI tentatively accepted the election results and demanded a probe of election fraud in four constituencies as a litmus test for the rest of the election.
Although the party produced a 2,page white paper with evidence of vote-rigging, no action was taken by the government. According to Khan, in any democracy its supreme court would have nullified the results and called for a new election.
During the jalsas, Khan expressed disappointment at the lack of initiative by the country's judicial system and the treatment by the election commission of his charges.
On 22 Aprilthe PTI announced the start of their anti-corruption movement. The PTI chairman called the march the final phase and defining moment of his party's protest of electoral rigging of the elections. The PAT named their march " Inqilab march " to avoid confusion with the PTI protest, and it was speculated that the marches might merge.
Although Qadri initially refused to join Khan's protest and considered changing the date and venue of his march, he later announced that his march would proceed on the same day. The announcement of the informal alliance and parallel marches increased pressure on the PML-N government to restrict the parties.
The protests quickly turned violent quickly, and Khan and Tahir-ul-Qadri marched towards Parliament House and local news-channel offices late on 30 August. Violent clashes erupted in other cities, with as many as 13 protesters dead at the hands of police and several police officers injured.
The army issued a statement calling for restraint by the police. Four senior police officers three men and one woman resigned from the Islamabad and Punjab police, alleging police brutality. Khan announced plans for the Azadi march, calling it the final phase of his protest against electoral fraud in the general election.
He gave government a one-month dispensation because of Ramadan before opening an investigation of four constituencies, marked by his four jalsas. Although the marches were organised on different routes, mirroring each other, it became apparent that the parties had similar objectives but different strategies.
The announcement of parallel marches by opposition parties gave rise to speculation about a possible PTI-PAT coalition. The party never clearly stipulated a formal coalition, but an informal agreement to support each other was reached.
Demands[ edit ] Khan and the PTI had consistently asked the government to appoint tribunals and committees to investigate electoral fraud in four constituencies after the election. His primary four demands included investigation of  how Sharif declared victory prior to the official results; the role of former Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary in the election; the roles played by the caretaker government particularly Najam Sethi; and electoral fraud in 90 constituencies.

Over the next month, Khan's demand became more generalised and included the following: After Khan presented his demands, the government further ridiculed him.
This forced him to present the following ultimate demands: Moments later, the rally began marching towards Islamabad.
The delay resulted after the milestone destinations of Data Darbar, Bhatti Chowk, Azadi Chowk and Niazi Chowk were included in the rally route at a later time, after the march had begun.
The party posted pictures on Twitter of PML-N workers standing on a police van and throwing stones, alleging that the Gujranwala police were aware of the government workers' malicious intent.
Khattak's speech was followed by former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi 's speech at 3: Khan said that his party's protests would continue until "Nawaz Sharif [resigns] and announces [new] elections".
He ended his speech by promising to speak again at 3 pm. In his absence, Shah Mehmood Qureshi addressed the crowd at the rally venue and Pervez Khattak left for his province.
He added that he was amazed at Khan's demand for civil disobedience. PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira called the committees "a good step", but expressed concern that "it has been done late".
Khan asked his followers to "kick off a civil disobedience campaign" and not pay taxes or utility bills, and gave the government two days to meet his demands.
However, Qureshi stressed that PTI lawmakers in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assembly would only resign after talks with the party's coalition members in the provincial assembly. The protesters numbered several hundred thousand. According to Shah, he had unsuccessfully tried to meet the leaders until 3 am the previous night.
After a PTI core committee meeting, the party leadership decided "not to partake in any dialogue and to continue marching to the Red Zone".
This negated his earlier statement that the PTI demands were beyond government control: He said that the PTI was unable to live up to its promise to gather a million people, and Khan did not stand by his word to "not [move] into the Red Zone". Nisar described the three tiers of security in the Red Zone: The Islamabad police took up positions at the entrance to the barricaded zone.
