ECP on its knees?

This refers to the news item ‘ECP surrenders on fake-degree issue’ (Feb 22). I don’t think anyone will believe that the Election Commission is a truly independent body if it does not disqualify all those parliamentarians who cannot prove that their degrees are genuine.

Such lawmakers (law-breakers, in fact) should be prevented from contesting all future elections (if not sentenced to prison terms).
