At least three people have been injured at Asokore-Mampong in the Asawase Constituency of the Ashanti Region after violent clashes broke out between supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress and the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The incident happened on Friday at the precinct of the Electoral Commission’s (EC’s) office in the constituency during the ongoing limited registration exercise in the area.
In the course of the melee, windscreens of vehicles were smashed, while three people sustained injuries on the cheek, ear and hands.
All the injured were treated and discharged by the Manhyia Government Hospital on Friday shortly after the incident.
The constituency has a history of violence between the two major political parties NDC and the NPP competing for the parliamentary seat and votes.
On Thursday, a similar incident occurred over registration of some senior high school students for which the two parties were made to sign an undertaking to allow peace to prevail.
