Asarem ascended to the office after serving as Shakaar Edon's Second Minister throughout his five years in office. When Shakaar was assassinated just moments before the Republic of Bajor's formal induction into the United Federation of Planets, Asarem was hastily given the Bajoran oath of office; she demanded an immediate investigation, which found that Trill delegate Hiziki Gard had assassinated Shakaar upon discovering that Shakaar had been infested by a Bluegill parasite as part of a larger plan to infiltrate the Federation and wage war upon the Trill. Asarem's government cooperated with Federation personnel in neutralizing the threat, and Asarem later signed the papers inducting Bajor into the Federation on 29 September 2376.

Later that year, Asarem sought out the aid of her ex-husband, Krim Aldos, and appointed him Bajor's Federation Councillor when her first choice, Rava Mehwyn, died unexpectedly on Earth. This was a recess appointment that was unapproved by the Chamber of Ministers, Bajor's legislature; however, within a year, Krim had proven himself at the job and remained in office.
