The opposition has attempted to clip the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) wings by proposing amendments in the NAB Ordinance, however, the federal government rejected to accept it.
Shahzad Akbar said in a statement that the expectations of the opposition side for the NAB amendments against its support of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) could not be fulfilled.
The federal government has recommended for extension of its chairman, deputy chairman and prosecutor general.
There have been proposals for the government to strike a deal in return of supporting changes in 18th constitutional amendment, claims Babar Awan.
Powers of the accountability watchdog are not curtailed under the new NAB ordinance, said Shahzad Akbar.
The new ordinance is likely to grant special powers to the accountability courts subordinate to the NAB to decide about the fate of the persons' bail accused in corruption cases.
Fawad Chaudhry said that opposition parties are the biggest hindrance in bringing any changes to the NAB law.
The federal government has formed a three-member committee to reach out to the coalition and opposition parties over amendment in NAB ordinance.
A number key politicians and former bureaucrats have sought disposal of corruption cases against them in petitions filed in courts, according to a list, a copy of which is available with ARY News.
Former prime minister Raja Pervez Ashraf and former finance minister Shaukat Tareen are among applicants
