NRO is illegal & unconstitutional: Supreme Court

All political parties in Pakistan have welcomed
the supreme court verdict, saying it's the victory of the people.

Chief Justice of Pakistan read out a unanimous verdict by the 17-member bench, saying the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) under which President Zardari and more than 8,000 people including the main opposition party PML(N), Politicians and civil servants had their cases closed without prosecution, is illegal and unconstitutional. He said that all cases suspended under the NRO would now revert back to their status as of October 5, 2007 when the controversial ordinance was issued.

Opposition leaders called upon the president to immediately resign after the ruling against the NRO he has no right to rule the country anymore, while Babar Awan, said that government would complete his five year term and rebuffed immediate calls from opposition that President Zardari resign.

Government will come under pressure to step down on moral grounds, though there are no signs that this is likely to happen.
