Digital Surge: Imran Khan’s Platforms Hit 18.4M Voter Searches; expected 31.8M voter impact

Unprecedented digital engagement on Imran Khan's platforms projects a historic voter turnout, showcasing PTI's transformative role and the democratic spirit amidst governmental challenges.

In a remarkable show of strength and support, over 18.4 million searches related to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidates and their electoral symbols have been recorded across Imran Khan’s Facebook Page, the Voter Parchi Raabta App, and the official web portal. Through comprehensive statistical analysis, accounting for potential error margins, this projects an anticipated PTI voter turnout ranging from 28.8 to 34.9 million, equivalent to between 2 crore 88 lakhs to 3 crore 49 lakhs voters; with an expected vote of 31.8 million.

The impact of 31.8 million voters results from a rigorous statistical analysis, which maps an average family voting rate of 3.3 among voters aged 18 to 60. With a presumed 70% inclination towards PTI, the analysis adjusts to an effective family voting rate of 2.26. The net engagement of over 14.1 million unique searches in unparalleled search of voting details on Imran Khan’s digital platforms underscores the significant mobilization and massive engagement.
