N to re-elect Nawaz as party president today

Nawaz's re-election as party head Election Bill 2017 to be tabled in NA on Monday

The court also decided that it will separate the proceeding against Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on next date of hearing if his children would again fail to appear before it.

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's indictment on charges of corruption has been deferred by a National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court till October 9.

The central working committee of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz on Monday amended the party constitution, paving way for a disqualified legislator to lead the party.

The bill was presented by Minister for Law and Justice Zahid Hamid in the parliament where it was smoothly passed by the lawmakers.

The bar is, however, being removed through the Electoral Reforms Bill 2017 passed by the National Assembly on Aug 22 and the Senate, with some amendments, a month later on Sept 22.

Their stance was that Mohammad Nawaz Sharif has been disqualified by the Supreme Court, hence he is not eligible for the Presidentship of the party.

The bill will be later sent to President Mamnoon Hussain and it will be a part of the law after his approval.
