The major challenge in this regard involved the details provided by the political parties at the filing stage.

Cases that bother on allegations of forgery of signatures and manufacturing of endorsees will be forwarded to the Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for further probe. Meanwhile, the EC explained that the GHC100,000 filing fee will be refunded to the disqualified candidates in line with the rules surrounding the process.
