The sources told Online that HEC has declared the degrees of those 254 parliamentarians suspicious which could not submit their degrees to HEC. If Election Commission would provide the required degrees, than HEC would evaluate their authenticity.
It is pertinent to mention here that HEC has declared some 60 degrees of members of parliament bogus whereas the verification of 254 degree were under process. The verification was discontinued temporarily due to the controversy that arose on the issue of devolution of HEC.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan has allowed HEC to carry on its routine functioning till any legislation is made in this connection.
