Flagbearer of the All People’s Party (APC), Hassan Ayariga, has petitioned the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) over presidential and parliamentary filing fees.

He wants a 50 percent reduction of the GH₵100,000 and GH₵10,000 fee for presidential and parliamentary candidates respectively ahead of the December polls.

In a statement copied to Adomonline.com, Mr Ayariga cited how the COVID-19 pandemic had affected their ability to raise such huge sums to buttress his point.
