The amendment will pave the way for sacked premier Nawaz Sharif to again become PML-N president

Meanwhile, Sharif is expected to be reinstated as the chief of his party- Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) today after a scheduled party leadeship meet.

The leaders also agreed to amend the party's Constitution so that any person could assume the presidency even if that person did not hold public office, Dawn newspaper reported.

The intra-party election is being held after the National Assembly on Monday passed the Elections Bill 2017, paving way for former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to regain chairmanship of the ruling party. Sharif could be jailed after the indictment.

The Representation of Peoples Act 1976 bars anyone who is ineligible to become a member of parliament from holding office in a political party.

The amendment was made unanimously at a meeting chaired by party's interim president Senator Sardar Yaqub Nasir at Punjab House after it was moved by Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, who is also the general-secretary of the party. He said the former premier's indictment has been deferred to October 9, the next date of hearing.

The bill will be later sent to President Mamnoon Hussain and it will be a part of the law after his approval. During the hearing, the PML-N (Pakistan Muslim League) lawyer argued that all of the accused in the case have to appear in court before an indictment takes place.

The court has issued non-bailable arrest warrants for the men and a bailable warrant for Maryam, likely keeping in mind that she may need to stay with her ailing mother in London.

The re-election of Nawaz Sharif as PML-N chief is coinciding with the day when the National Assembly will pass the amendments made by the Senate in the Electoral Reforms Bill 2017.

During his first appearance in the accountability court on September 26 in connection with three corruption references filed by the NAB against him and his family members, it declined Sharif's request for exemption from personal attendance.

While talking to media outside the accountability court, Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha said the court was informed that Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar could not appear before the court due to illness of Kulsoom Nawaz.
