The government has planned to bulldoze the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) through Standing Committees on Law and Justice of the National Assembly and the Senate on the force of its majority.

“When we have a clear majority not only in the bodies but also in both the parliamentary chambers, we are not shy of pushing the NRO through the Senate and the National Assembly at a speed of our own choice,” a cabinet minister, who is part of the ongoing consultations at the Presidency about the passage of this crucial legislation, told The News on the condition of not being named.

He said it had been decided the NRO would earn parliamentary approval by Nov 28, the deadline of its 120 days life given by the July 31 Supreme Court verdict.
