The Supreme Court (SC) ordered the Election Commission of Pakistan on Friday to take action against former PPP MNA Amir Yar Waran for possessing a fake degree.
A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry heard the case.
When contacted, the Balochistan University registrar confirmed that Mr Waran's degree had been declared fake by the university's academic council.
Mr Waran resigned from the National Assembly after reports of his degree being fake surfaced.
In his remarks, the chief justice said that not all parliamentarians were bad and that their abilities should not be judged by a few black sheep.
