EC Rejects IPP’s Parliamentary Filing Fees, CPP Yet To Pay

The Electoral Commission has rejected the parliamentary filing fees of the Independent People’s Party (IPP), source has reported from the EC headquarters.

The money was rejected because the party chose to present bulk cash instead of a banker’s draft as advised by the commission. It, however, presented a banker’s draft for the Presidential fee.

Flagbearer of the party Kofi Akpaloo is livid over the development and is threatening to sue the electoral management body.

Meanwhile, radioxyzonline.com has learnt the CPP is yet to make payment for their presidential candidate. Officials of the party are reportedly at the bank trying to secure a banker’s draft for presentation at the EC.

So far, 15 out of the 17 parties that filed their nominations including the NDC and the NPP have paid the fees.

The EC has warned it will not accept any payment after 12.00 noon.

The Commission is expected to begin the vetting of the forms to determine who is credible to contest for the presidency on December 7.
