The move comes as each presidential hopeful needs to collect 100,000 signatures in order to register their candidacy.

Korwin-Mikke is the first presidential runner to announce that he has collected the necessary signatures required.

Korwin-Mikke, along with his supporters, handed over the signatures on Monday morning. The State Electoral Commission is expected to register Korwin-Mikke as a candidate once the signatures have been verified.

The deadline for submitting the necessary 100,000 signatures is billed for 16 March, while the presidential elections are slated for 10 May. (jb)
