EC’s 100K filing fee is peanut -Akua Donkor


The founder and leader of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Madam Akua Donkor says she is to pay and file to contest in the presidential election.

The unlettered candidate told Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, the amount is not bigger than she is or her finances.

The farmer says the resources that she used in establishing her party cannot be compared to the GHc100,000 charged by the Electoral Commission (EC).

According to her, persons who have questioned where she would get the resources from are not serious and jokers.

In her view, those who have lamented and described the figure as outrageous are entitled top their her opinions.

Madam Donkor said the EC must be commended for the figure because the presidential race is not for jokers.

To those who cannot get the figure she stated are not serious, adding her political party is not a minor party as some have described it.

She admonished Ghanaians to vote for the Ghana Freedom Party because she has the best policies to transform Ghana.

Presidential candidates who have expressed interest in contesting the national election will be required to pay a GH¢100,000 for nominations forms.

Parliamentary candidates on the other hand will pay GH¢10,000. Both forms are to be accessed on the Electoral Commission website.

The Commission at a press conference on Monday stated that the candidates after purchasing their forms are required to submit them from October 5 to 9 between 9-1pm and 2-5pm each day.

My gov’t will operate free port system, run partyless parliament – Akua Donkor promises

She burst onto the political scene about 8 years ago. Many touted her as a nine-day wonder probably because she was a woman and one who was not literate in Ghana’s official language English.

Founder and Leader of the Ghana Freedom Party, Akua Donkor, says despite the naysayers she is bent on annexing power come December 7.

In an interview with GBC’s Radio Ghana, she said her government will operate a free port system as well as run a partyless parliament.

Madam Donkor said as the first proponent of free education under the fourth republic, she still stands by her promise to run it from kindergarten to the tertiary level. She said funds from the country’s natural resources will go to fund all the free services she intends to roll out.
