The flag-bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo today filed his nomination at the Electoral Commission (EC).

According to sources, the EC was however forced to  reject  the  filing fee of the flag-bearer of the NPP as a result of an interlocutory injunction filed by the Progressive People’s Party (PPP).

The Commission also rejected the party’s decision to pay  the filing fee of  all the 275 parliamentary candidates because of the injunction.

The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) had sued the Electoral Commission over the filing fees after the electoral body astronomically increased the filing fees for both presidential and parliamentary candidates.

Meanwhile, the United Progressive Party (UPP), United Front Party (UFP) and the All Progressive Congress (APC) have all successfully submitted their presidential nomination forms.
