On Friday, chaos erupted in Bekwai, Ashanti Region, during the confirmation of Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) nominee Kwaku Kyei Baffour.
Some Assembly members are said to have been beaten for voting against Mr Baffour.
The nominee, who is seeking re-election for a second term, received 33 YES votes out of 48 total votes cast, sparking the brawl.
A video that went viral on the internet showed some people at the confirmation exchanging blows in front of the hall where the election is thought to have taken place.
Though the identities of the victims are unknown at this time, witnesses’ attempts to separate them proved futile.
It took the intervention of the police to bring the situation to a close.
Okatakyie, born Kingsley Opoku Agyemang, has since been identified as the Assembly member of Dedease Electoral Area.
