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.

Speaking to journalist after picking the form, Anyidoho said the decision by the EC to charge those amounts as filing fees are administrative.

He added, “The day you allow to begin to take administrative decisions for the Electoral Commission, you have messed up the whole process."
