The candidates were disqualified in October by the EC after anomalies were detected in their nomination forms.

An impasse between the PPP and the EC ended up in the Supreme Court after the commission disqualified Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom and 11 other presidential candidates over errors that were detected in their nomination forms.

The Supreme Court, however, affirmed an earlier High Court ruling that ordered the commission to allow the candidates correct their errors and be admitted into the December race.
