In the initial round of the primaries Hon Kyerematen will still win by 30 per cent votes to 29 per cent for Dr Alhaji Bawumia. Assin Central MP, Kennedy Ohene Adjapong will take the third position with 23 per cent votes, the research said. The remainder will go to other contenders and those ‘undecided’.
