A statement signed by the Deputy Chairman of the EC in charge of operations, Amadu Sulley said interested persons can only contest either the District Assembly Election or the Unit Committee Election but not both elections.

He added that ?no fee shall be paid for obtaining the forms or for filing to contest the elections.?
Mr. Sulley however clarified that the elections will not cover electoral areas in the Lower Manya Krobo District in the Eastern Region.

Nomination forms can be obtained at the District Office of the Commission or from the Deputy Returning Officers (Special Duties) in the respective electoral areas.
The Commission has therefore directed that all completed nomination forms should be submitted to the Deputy Returning Officers on the dates set aside as nomination days.
