The release also added that women, youth and Persons With Disabilities(PWDs) who want to aspire to a higher political office will enjoy a 50 percent rebate on the filing fees.

"This means they will be required to pay a non-refundable filing fee of seventeen thousand and five hundred Ghana Cedis (GHC17,500.00).
