PML-N rejects the NAB Amendment Ordinance 2021

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has rejected the NAB Amendment Ordinance 2021, reported 24News HD TV channel. 

While reacting to the ordinance, PML-N spokesperson Mariyum Aurangzeb said that they strongly condemned the black law, saying that they would oppose it at every forum. The PML-N categorically rejects this ordinance as it is based on malice, she said and added that the law had been changed to advance the agenda of political revenge which would lead to anarchy, and chaos in the country. She said the party's legal experts were being consulted, and this draconian law would be challenged in every legal forum. 

Mariyum said the back law was an open attack on the independence of the judiciary and a disrespect to the parliament. This is not an ordinance, this is an NRO brought by Imran Khan to cover up three years of black deeds and thefts, she added.

The amendment regarding the appointment of the NAB chairman is the worst example of dishonesty, he further said. 

She said that the executives had taken over the appointment and transfer of the judges which was an open violation of Articles 175 and 203 of the Constitution regarding the principle of independence of the judiciary. 

The PML-N spokesperson said that they rejected Imran Khan’s conspiracy to take over the power of appointing judges across the country. “We categorically reject this illegal and blatant deviation from court decisions,” she said and added that specific amendments were made to prolong the NAB-Niazi Nexus. And, she said that the political opponents would be sentenced and no one would be granted bail. 

She said that the amount of money that will be charged is the same amount of money that will have to be bailed out in order to make the bail process of political opponents impossible.

On such a serious and sensitive issue, fundamental legal changes through the ordinances are illegal and we will strongly oppose them, he said.
