Jamil Awan, there is actually a procedure to vote as an expat, its called mail in vote, the same way imran khan himself voted from his prison cell, and nobody has excluded you or said you cant vote, elections are held every 5 years, so once every 5 years you can come visit during election and cast your vote yourself too!

All countries around the world facilitate their citizens living abroad to vote in their respective Embassies and Consulates. It is ironic Pakistan doesn't provide this facility.
