THE office of the ANC chief whip said yesterday it would "reject" a proposed law by the DA that would guide the president on granting pardons to criminal offenders.

The DA proposed the bill on Wednesday after the Presidency confirmed it had received a request for a pardon from President Jacob Zuma's former financial adviser and convicted fraudster Schabir Shaik.

The proposed bill was tantamount to seeking to amend the Constitution, the office said. - Sapa
