Shehla Raza has claimed that, under one of the provisions of NRO, it has been agreed among the stakeholders that martial law would not be imposed for at least 15 years. This fits in with what was decided under CoD, that PPP and PML-N would take turns winning the 2013 and 2018 elections. Benazir of course, must have insisted on one more turn for good measure, and couldn’t care less what happened after that – ‘after me the deluge’. A more calculating woman was never born she could have taught Machiavelli a thing or two!
