The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) is planning to hold a rally in Rawalpindi on Friday, December 27, to commemorate the anniversary of the death of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

The rally, which has been approved by the Lahore High Court (LHC), is expected to take place in Liaquat Bagh.

A heightened security presence and localised transportation disruption are expected in the vicinity of the rally.

Context

Rawalpindi authorities had previously denied permission for the rally over alleged security concerns, prompting the PPP to file a petition in the Lahore High court (LHC).
