The Electoral Commission has announced that Presidential Candidates in the upcoming elections will pay a filing fee of GHC100,000 while Parliamentary candidates will pay GHC10,000.

This was announced by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Jean Mensa Monday, September 14, 2020. She also announced that filing will be opened to the candidates from October 5 to October 9, 2020.

Reacting to the announcement, Deputy General Secretary of the NDC Peter Boamah Otukornor told Starr News: “I don’t know the thinking that went in the charge. I think it is the highest in recent times and I think the EC will have to take a second look at it. This is an attack on our democracy and there is no justification of this hundred per cent increment from the last one”.

Also commenting on the development, the Communications Director of the Progressive People’s Party Felix Mantey said the Commission is being arbitrary with the charge.

“This is outrageous and we cannot accept it. We will meet the other political parties over it and then decide the next approach to handle this matter. The amount is just too high”.

Meanwhile, the Presidential candidate of the All People’s Party Hassan Ayariga said he will be able to afford the amount but institutions must work.
