Scores of Pakistani politicians could lose their seats in parliament after authorities opened an inquiry into claims 10 per cent of federal and provincial legislators had lied about their qualifications.
Up to 160 elected officials have been accused of faking their degrees in order to meet a requirement for holding office.
Critics said that the law was undemocratic because only 50 per cent of adults in the country of 180 million people are literate.
"A degree is a degree! Whether fake or genuine, it's a degree! It makes no difference!" Nawab Aslam Raisani, the chief minister from Baluchistan province who claims to have a master's degree in political science, shouted at reporters.
