‘Presidents’ Pay ¢100M 10/7/2012
PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES in the 2012 general elections are expected to pay GH¢10,000 or GH¢100 million as the nomination fee for the December 7 polls.
However, the nomination fee for parliamentary elections was GH¢1,000.
The Electoral Commission (EC) released the amounts in a statement signed and issued on Thursday by its Deputy Chairman in charge of operations, Kwadwo Sarfo Kantanka.
The statement said in accordance with regulations 4 and 5 of the Public Elections Regulations, 2012, the EC would receive nominations for the 2012 elections on October 17 and 18.
It said political parties desirous of sponsoring candidates for the parliamentary elections as well as individuals who were interested in contesting the said elections may obtain nomination forms from the Returning Officers in the respective constituencies or the regional offices of the commission.
Nomination forms for the presidential election, the statement added, may be obtained from the head office of the commission.
It reminded candidates to submit four copies of their recent photographs (bust) with red background showing the full face and both ears when submitting their nomination forms.
“Political Parties and individuals who want to contest the elections are advised to take note and act accordingly,” the statement concluded.
Political pundits have been wondering when the EC would open nominations for this year’s presidential and parliamentary elections, especially when the usual filing month of September has passed without a word from the election governing body.
