Javed Hashmi: [Introduced to the audience as the "cleanest politician" in Pakistan after Imran Khan. Was former senior vice president of PML-N before defecting to PTI]
Shafqat Mahmood: [Central Information Secretary for PTI]
- Says he had long envisioned the creation of a new party in the face of a corrupt system, corruption from which not one single department was untouched.
- Says he decided to join PTI after a near-death experience. Having faced a stroke and having had a dialogue with God, he decided to defect.
- A few people in the audience began chants in his favor which caught on "Eik Bahadur Adami: Hashmi, Hashmi" (One Couragous man: Hashmi, Hashmi) and "Baghi, Baghi" (Rebel, Rebel).
- Told of his amazement at the affluence of Pakistani-Americans who held major positions in local companies here in Seattle. Explained how he had previously witnessed the menial wage jobs performed by talented Pakistanis in many countries abroad, such as the Arab states, and that he was amazed at how successful the community had become here and what great potential they had to help not only America in her growth and development but also Pakistan.
- Mentioned how expatriates of other nations often abandoned their countries and burned bridges, while Pakistanis everywhere feel invested in Pakistan.
- Encouraged investment in Pakistan. Spoke of how somebody he knew had invested back home, and upon arriving there, found that somebody else had established property on his land. Upon going to the police, he himself was arrested. He said he envisions a Pakistan where outside investments can be made safely (which also implies that PTI is in favor of expanding foreign investment in Pakistan by presenting enhanced security for outsiders as well).Imran Khan: [The face of PTI, it's chairman and founder]
- Mentioned how some people wanted PTI to expand more on actual policies they would have (as much of the support, reminiscent to that of Barrack Obama here in the states, comes from people who blindly hope in change having been disillusioned by their other options). Argued that these people were just the elites without actually expanding on this criticism of the party.
- Spoke of how he envisioned that the masses of Pakistan would one day have the ability to elect all upper politicians democratically.
