The Council of Elders of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will today meet disgruntled Flagbearer aspirants who petitioned the Council for a review of the filing fees and timetable for next months primaries.

The Functional Executive Committee of the party has reduced the filing fee from GHC400,000 to GHC300,000 based on the advice of the Council of Elders.

Aspirants who missed the deadline for picking of forms have been given another opportunity to do so by Saturday.

As at the close of the deadline on Tuesday evening, only four of the aspirants had picked their nomination forms in their bid to lead the party into the 2020 election, leaving eight others including Dr Spio Garbrah, Kojo Bonsu and Alban Bagbin vowing not to participate in the process arguing it will amount to an illegality.
