The New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate in the Klottey Korle constituency, Philip Addison, has confessed that he would never have ventured into politics if he knew how "tortuous" it would be for him.
In an interview with Citi FM, the renowned lawyer confesses of having been shocked by some of the things he had come to know about politics.
Mr. Addison, who was the lead lawyer for NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo during the 2012 Election Petition case, expressed interest in representing the party in Parliament in the Klottey Korle constituency.
His main contender in the primary, Nii Noi Nortey, once an NPP constituency chairman in the area, is contesting as an independent candidate because he was aggrieved by the process that got Mr. Addison elected over him.
The Klottey Korle constituency is been contested by Zanetor Rawlings of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Eva Lokko of the Progressive People's Party (PPP).
