The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has said it will file a contempt case against the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana on Monday for accepting the filing fee of the party.

The PPP has filed a suit against the EC in connection with the GHS50,000 filing fee for presidential nominees, leading to an injunction placed on some aspects of the filing process.

The PPP is seeking a declaration that Regulation 45 of C.I. 94 is discriminatory, arbitrary, capricious, and unreasonable. “That the entire C.I. 94 does not contain the appropriate relevant provisions that meet the intendment of Article 296 of the 1992 Constitution.”
