The Electoral Commission has disqualified five (5) persons from taking part in the 2020 Presidential elections after failing to meet the outlined requirements.

Among them are; Akwasi Addai Odike,  Marrick Kofi Gane and Agyenim Boateng while Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, John Dramani Mahama, Akua Donkor, Bridgette Dzobegnuku, Christian Kwabena Andrew, Alfred walker, Nana Konadu Agyeman, Hassan Ayariga, Ivor Greenstreet and  Henry Lartey have all been cleared to contest.

A week ago, The Electoral Commission of Ghana announced that seventeen persons put themselves up to contest for the Presidency in the 2020 election.

Out of the seventeen persons, the three of the aspirants were independent candidates whiles fourteen are persons belonging to the political parties.

The Electoral Commission (EC) subsequently set up two vetting teams to scrutinize the nomination forms of all the presidential aspirants in the 2020 election.

They were the Technical and IT teams, which scrutinized the forms to ensure that the aspirants meet the qualifications as set out in the law such as being over 40 years old and having satisfied all tax obligations among others.

The IT team for instance checked and verify whether candidates and supporters are indeed registered voters and at the end dropped 5 out of the 17.
