The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has sued the Electoral Commission over the presidential and parliamentary filing fees.
The opposition party joined the government through the Attorney General to the suit filed on Monday, September 19. The EC has eight days from today to respond to the suit.
The action by the PPP comes weeks after the EC increased the filing fees for Presidential Candidates by 500 percent from 10,000 Cedis to 50,000 Cedis.
The filing fees for Parliamentary Candidates have also been increased from 1,000 Cedis to 10,000 Cedis.
