An Accra high court will today hear the suit filed by the Progressive People’s Party over the EC’s astronomical filing fees.

The PPP in a writ filed at the high court prayed the court to stop the EC from increasing the filing fees astronomically. It describes the 500 percent hike in the presidential filing fee as arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable.

The EC however consequently restrained itself last week from collecting the banker’s draft of presidential aspirants who submitted their nomination forms on Thursday September 29, in respect of the pendency of the lawsuit.

The PPP has also cited the EC Boss, Charlotte Osei for contempt after it accepted the filing fees from the party during the filing of nominations.
