Incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Adansi-Asokwa Constituency in the Ashanti region, K.T Hammond, will not be seeking re-election.
His decision follows reports that the incumbent MP returned his nomination forms after two others picked forms to challenge him.
The first one is a 52-year-old Chartered Accountant, Sammy Binfo Darkwa, who has vowed to give the incumbent a run for his money.
This is the first time in over 20 years, KT Hammond is being challenged for his seat since he was elected MP in 2001.
The outspoken MP has always been selected through popular acclamation.
However, KT Hammond’s 6th attempt is being impeded with the coming of Mr Sammy Darkwa who has been tipped to win the seat.
Sensing danger, the Adansi Asokwa MP returned his forms to the Constituency chairman, Kwame Owusu – an indication that he has pulled out of the race.
