Presidential nominee of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, has submitted her presidential nomination forms to the Electoral Commission to contest the presidency in the December 7 polls.

Other presidential candidates including, John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Nana Akufo Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP),  DankwaKofi Akpaloo of the Independent People’s Party (IPP), Agyenim Boateng of the United Front Party (UFP) and Hassan Ayariga of the All People's Congress (APC) have all submitted their nomination forms to the EC in a bid to contest for the mandate to rule the country.

The Electoral Commission (EC) is, however, not accepting the GHS50,000 filing fee that must be added to the forms to complete the process because the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has sued the EC in connection with the fee. The EC has taken such action so as not to be in contempt of court.

23 candidates including seven independent aspirants have picked forms to run for president.

Presidential and parliamentary aspirants are expected to submit their nomination forms by the end of Friday, September 30.
