From some part of the country, the members of the New Patriotic Party are not just disagreeing among themselves over the primaries - they are attacking, insulting and fighting themselves.

The NPP's vetting of parliamentary aspirants ahead of the election itself, has turned violent.

Stones and plastic chairs became objects for attack on some aspirants and their supporters specifically in the Asante Akyem North Constituency, of the Ashanti Region.

One person was injured in the free for all fight as angry NPP youth armed with clubs and plastic chairs attacked constituency executives supervising the vetting process.

The monitoring team of Pulse.com.gh has been following these developments, and brings you a summary of some of the  unseemly incidents in these NPP-on-NPP conflicts.

Asante Akyem North constituency

The Member of Parliament for Asante Akyim North, Kwadjo Baah Agyemang, was the target of the attack on suspicion that he masterminded some secret recording of the minority leader in parliament.

The serial callers rejected appeals to remain calm until after a while.  The incumbent MP says he will lodge an official complaint with the police to deal with the case of assault.

Tema West constituency

Some delegates of the NPP in the constituency have threatened to vote skirt and blouse if incumbent MP, Irene Naa Torshie Addo wins.

According to the aggrieved delegates, Irene Naa Torshie-Addo has failed to live up to expectations as an MP for the area amid poor human relations.

The executives are waging a campaign against the re-election of the MP.

According to the executives, they will resist the attempt to disqualify any of the candidates contesting.
