NPP opens nominations for Ejisu by-election today

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has opened nominations for the upcoming Ejisu constituency by-election.
The nomination period, starting today, Tuesday, April 2, will conclude on Thursday, April 4.

The decision follows the death of the MP and Deputy Finance Minister, John Ampontuah Kumah last month.

The party in a statement signed by the General Secretary of the party Justin Kodua Frimpong announced that interested parliamentary hopefuls can purchase and file their nomination forms at the constituency party office.

According to the NPP, an aspiring parliamentary candidate shall procure Nomination Forms after the payment of a non-refundable application fee of GHȼ3,000 in bankers draft in favour of the New Patriotic Party National Headquarters, Accra.

An aspiring parliamentary candidate shall further pay a non-refundable filing fee of GHȼ35, 000 in bankers draft in favour of the New Patriotic Party National Headquarters, Accra.

The statement noted, however, that Women, Youth (persons aged between 18 and 40 years), and Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) will enjoy a 50% rebate on the filing fees. They thus will be required to pay a non-refundable filing fee of GHȼ17,500.
