EC’s Filing Fee Is To Separate Serious Candidates From Unserious Ones – Nana Akomea



Managing Director of State Transport Company (STC), Nana Akomea has defended the Electoral Commission’s decision to increase the Presidential filing fee to GHC100,000 and GHC10,000 for Parliamentary aspirants.

Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show, Nana Akomea noted that there are some unserious political parties and therefore the filing fee is the commissions’s own way of filtering those parties out.

“They want the people who will file their nomination to be people who are serious so that nobody wakes up to do just something and get 2 percent or 1 percent to waste time. I think the money is one way they’re using to seive in order to have serious candidates or serious political parties,” he said.

He, however, was of the view that the EC should have had a stakeholder meeting with all the political parties before coming out with the filing fee so as to have established a consensus with the parties.
