Information available to YEN.com.gh suggests that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has set its fees for aspiring Members of Parliament (MPs) at GHC27,000.
The decision also affects sitting parliamentarians who wish to recontest their seats during the 2020 elections.
The amount reportedly covers nomination forms fees, which is GHC2000, and filing fees fixed at GHC25,000.
The decision represents a sharp increase from the fees set for the 2016 elections, which was fixed at GHC10,000.
The then presidential aspirant however paid an amount of GHC50,000; this shot up to GHC320,000 during the 2019 flagbearership contest.
Per a report by Dailyguidenetwork.com, the GH¢27,000 was set during the NDC’s National Executive Committee (NEC’s) meeting held on Saturday, April 6, 2019.
The NEC has reportedly given the party’s Functional Executive Committee (FEC) the mandate to determine dates for the conduct of parliamentary primaries after all the necessary consultations have been done.
Unnamed sources have disclosed that the FEC is expected to fix the dates anytime from now but must not go beyond August 2019.
