After the ruling of the Palestinian electoral commission, Asif will lose his qualification as a member of the national assembly. According to the law of the Pakistan, if Asif loses his qualifications as a member of the national assembly, he will no longer serve as Minister of foreign affairs. Pakistan media reported that the ruling of the high court of Islamabad believed that Asif was not faithful to the Constitution and did not report the whole situation of the personal assets and the source of income in accordance with the constitutional requirements. In an interview with local media, Asif said he refused to accept the ruling of the high court of Islamabad and will appeal to the Supreme Court of Palestine. In 2017, a leader of the justice movement of Pakistan accused Asif of the fact that he was concealing his office from a company based in the United Arab Emirates and gaining income. He accused Asif of not being qualified as a member of the national parliament in the 2013 general election. Asif is a veteran politician. He has served as a member of the Pakistani national assembly since 1993 and has held an important position in the government of former Prime Minister Sheriff. In August 2017, Asif was appointed Minister of foreign affairs of Pakistan. In view of Asifs important position in the ruling party, the Pakistan Muslim Alliance (Sheriff), there is an analysis that his departure will be another major blow to the party. In July 2017, the Supreme Court of Pakistan abolished Sheriffs qualification as prime minister on suspicion of corruption. In April 13th this year, the Supreme Court ruled again that Sheriff was not allowed to hold public office for life.
