The EC is not accepting the filing fees yet because the Progressive People’s Party has sued the Commission over the ‘high’ filing fees for presidential and parliamentary aspirants.

So far 23 nominees, including seven independent aspirants, have picked forms to run for president. They are to start filing their nominations between today and Friday, September 30.
