The nomination and filing fees, however, remain the same.

The nomination forms will be picked at GH¢30,000 for presidential candidates and filed at GH¢500,000.

Parliamentary candidates will pick them at GH¢5,000 and file them at GH¢40,000.

The nominations will open from Monday, February 22 to Wednesday, February 24.

Interested aspirants will be given between Monday, March 20 and Wednesday, March 22 to file their forms.

Vetting is scheduled to take place from Monday, March 27 to Wednesday, March 29 after which results will be made known.

Aspirants with grievances will have up to Thursday, April 6 to appeal any decisions from the vetting committee after which the primaries will be held.
