"Nawaz Sharif has made a decision to appear before the court in National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references in order to expose the targeted trial", Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said and added justice is being "compromised" in the case.

Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha, a leader of Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), told the media after the hearing that last for more than an hour that the indictment has been postponed.

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

The first meeting of the council would be held at the Islamabad Convention Centre on Oct 2 after a meeting of the Central Working Committee (CWC) earlier in the morning to amend the PML-N constitution that also barred a disqualified person from holding any party office.

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.
