He also showed to Journalists the corrected nomination forms and signed them to confirm the EC's acceptance and satisfaction with the papers.

Speaking on behalf of the Coalition, Mr Gabriel Pwamang, General Secretary of the PNC, expressed satisfaction for being able to complete their papers and said the problem mainly emanated from the branches in some regions.
