Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Shehla Raza claimed on Wednesday that martial law could not be imposed in the country until three general elections were held in the country since the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) was issued.

Speaking to a private TV channel, the PPP leader said that the agreement was reached under a clause in the NRO, adding that the United States, Britain, the UAE as well as then ISI chief Ashfaq Pervez Kayani had guaranteed this.

Shehla said former president Asif Ali Zardari has also travelled to the US to remind world powers of their past promises. The PPP has disassociated itself from Shehla’s statement which the party has declared ‘misleading’ and ‘contrary to facts’.

According to a PPP spokesperson, Shehla’s stance on the matter did not correspond with the party’s approach. — Online
