The High Court has suspended the law requiring Members of Parliament to have degrees.
A ruling made on Thursday stayed the law until the case opposing it is heard and determined.
The ruling comes just a day after the Senate passed a law exempting Kenyans from having degrees as a requirement to vie for the MP seat.
The move serves as a reprieve to several Kenyans who are yet to acquire degrees but have ambitions to be MPs.
IEBC had said the directive to have a degree was still in place save for MCAs.
The electoral body said it was also waiting for a court case ruling to know its fate.
In a letter responding to UDA Secretary-general Veronica Maina, IEBC chief executive Marjan Hussein said the law requiring MPs to have degrees is still in force.
"Unless declared unconstitutional by the Court, the degree requirement for Members of Parliament is in force and is trite law," he said.
"Section 22 of the Elections Act, 2011 speaks to the requirement of Members of Parliament and Members of the County Assembly to possess a degree from a university recognized in Kenya. This law is in force for purposes of the General Election 2022."
