PML-N leader Khawaja Asif on Wednesday challenged the verdict of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) announced last week — that led to the now former foreign minister's disqualification as member of the parliament — in the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

A three-member special bench had disqualified Asif as a lawmaker under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution for not disclosing his employment in a UAE company as an occupation as well as the monthly salary he was receiving.

“Respondent [Khawaja Asif] was not qualified to contest the general election of 2013 from NA-110 as he did not fulfil the conditions described under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution, read with Section 99(1)(f) of the Act of 1976,” the IHC bench — comprising Justice Athar Minallah, Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani — had declared. Hours after the IHC verdict, the Election Commission of Pakistan had formally de-notified Asif as a member of the National Assembly.
