in thread System() in list mode?

So replace WHAT with PATH and your script will see $PATH just fine. I used WHAT because the name of the variable does not matter since you are not using a shell in LIST mode, and PATH has no more special meaning than WHAT does.

Beyond that, the only problem I see in your posted code is that you don't give a full path to /bin/bash (and $path isn't defined, but maybe you did that elsewhere).
