The commission said they failed to meet the requirements required for contesting the presidency.

The Commission also disqualified Madam Akua Donkor of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) and the flagbearers of 10 other parties, including United Progressive Party (UPP), Reformed Patriotic Democrats (RPD), Progressive People’s Party (PPP), and the Great Consolidated People’s Party (GCPP).

Others were the United Front Party (UFP), All People’s Congress (APC), National Democratic Party (NDP), and the Independent People’s Party (IPP).

At a press conference held in Accra on Monday, EC boss, Madam Charlotte Osei, essentially accused some of them of fraud, saying that the identities of some of the people who validated their forms were questionable.

She said she would forward all the relevant information to the attorney general's office for prosecution.
