K.T. Hammond, Member of Parliament for Adansi-Asokwa, has re-entered the NPP parliamentary primary, citing his desire to fill the void left by the choice of experienced NPP MPs not to return to the House.

Hammond, who is now serving his sixth term in Parliament after being elected in 2001, is up against three other candidates in Adansi-Asokwa.

Speaking upbeatly, Hammond justified his choice as a response to residents who were impressed by his track record.

He stressed the expected vacancy in Parliament as a result of the absence of seasoned MPs such as Joseph Osei Owusu, Dan Botwe, Samuel Atta Akyea, and Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, underlining the possible influence on the quality of work in the House.

Hammond addressed public concerns about the incident in which he was accused of hitting Majority Chief Whip Frank Annoh-Dompreh during parliamentary proceedings.

He stated that his motions had been misinterpreted and expressed irritation that they had been taken out of context.

Hammond highlighted his dedication to good debate in Parliament and denied being aggressive.

“I only made some gesticulations towards him to allow me to make my point regardless of the time constraints. Parliament had spent the whole day discussing other issues so why was I distracted from making my point to wind up the business of the day,” he said.
