The parties were protesting against alleged rigging in the recently-held elections.

They termed the recent elections held as selection and sought ECP officials to step drown from their posts.

PPP leader Sherry Rehman, speaking earlier to reporters, said it was necessary to remain peaceful and also demanded resignation from the ECP officials.

Former interior minister and PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal warned that those who think protestors dissipate without getting their demand fulfilled are mistaken.

However, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leadership maintained that the opposition has the right to hold protest peacefully.
