The exchange of fisticuffs coupled with physical showmanship of vigour has brought the NPP primaries at the Bantama Cultural Centre to a halt as delegates fight dirty.
According to a Joy News report, the agent representing current Member of Parliament for the Constituency, Daniel Okyem Aboagye prevented the Constituency Treasurer from voting because his status as an official of the Foreign Affairs Ministry does not qualify him to vote, even though his name was found in the album being used for the election.
The situation led to a scuffle which witnessed some blows and slaps being dished out at the polling station.
The reporter, however, indicated that security personnel in the constituency were quick to resolve the situation which could have escalated allowing the treasurer to finally cast his ballot.
The video was shared on Twitter by Evans Mensah, Head of Political Desk at Joy News.
The New Patriotic Party is today, June 20, 2020, holding parliamentary primaries in some 101 constituencies across the country. Polls opened at 7:00 am and is expected to close at 1:00 pm.
