Speaking in a parliamentary committee to review NAB laws, he said that government does not plan to close any NAB case or inquiry. Hamid said that as NAB laws were too strict, a new accountability commission is being set up. "All major political parties are supporting the new accountability commission," he said. In August, The leaders of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) agreed to form a new body to replace the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). The parties agreed to form National Accountability Commission in place of NAB during a parliamentary session on Tuesday. However, the two parties agreed that the commission will only have the authority to investigate federal institutions. The bill for the commission comprises 55 clauses, of which the two parties have agreed on 53 clauses. On the other hand, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders called the new commission ?toothless? and raised their voice against it.
