Dar had sought disqualification of Asif alleging that the foreign minister did not declare details of his employment contract with a UAE-based company and also concealed the salary details.

With the support of my leader Imran Khan, seniors, PTI workers, social media activists and lawyers, I have overcome this challenge and brought this fraudster under the long arms of Law.

A three-judge bench comprising Justice Athar Minallah, Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Kayani handed down this decision and ordered the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to immediately de-notify Asif as a member of the National Assembly. "The government must focus on more important issues such as appointing a new foreign minister immediately", she added. The PTI member accused Asif of concealing the facts about holding an Iqama [foreign work permit] of United Arab Emirates (UAE).
