The flagbearer of the Convention People's Party Ivor Greenstreet has presented its presidential nomination forms to the Electoral Commission (EC) to enable him contest the December polls.

Presidential and parliamentary candidates are mandated to a filing fee of GH¢50,000 and GH¢10,000 respectively but several political parties have raised concerns with the pricing.

However, speaking on the EC’s request for an asset declaration, Mr Greenstreet said the CPP believed in transparency and, therefore, he did not see anything wrong with declaring his assets.

“We always wish to comply with orders of institutions of government and we are willing and hoping to be transparent about our affairs so we feel that is the right thing to do,” he said.
