This order is for life.

The decision, read out by justice Umar Ata Bandial of a five-member bench, stated that the disqualification of any member of Parliament or a public servant under Article 62 (1) (f) of the Constitution in the future will be permanent. The ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) of Sharif rejected the verdict and said the former Prime Minister was "punished for eliminating terrorism and carrying out development projects".

Following the verdict, both Sharif and Tareen have become ineligible to ever hold public office.

The country's apex court had asked the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to file references against the Sharif family, in connection with the corruption cases against them.

Nawaz Sharif is a billionaire Pakistani businessman and the longest-serving prime minister of the country until he was disqualified for life from office.

Aurangzeb termed those who were behind the verdict as "innocent and cowardly" people who believed that disqualification can end a politician's political career.

Despite not being party leader, Sharif has considerable sway over the workings of the PML-N and enjoys the support of its core leadership. The ruling is believed to change the course of Pakistan's political history.
