Presidential Staffer Charles Bissue has a swollen face after he was involved in a brawl with the New Patriotic Party(NPP) Member of Parliament for Tarkwa-Nsuaem MP George Mireku Duker.
The widely circulated photos show Mr. Bissue’s eye being forced open for examination by another person.
The fight occurred at the Kingston Hotel in Takoradi during a workshop for Regional executives and Parliamentary Candidates.
Reports say there has been a frosty relationship between the two after Mr Bissue allegedly supported an independent candidate over Mr Duker during the parliamentary primaries.
The report further indicates that during the meeting, there was a misunderstanding between the MP and the regional party executive.
Eyewitnesses say Mr. Bissue who is also the Regional Secretary for the Party, amid the confusion grabbed the hands of Mr. Duker and bit it several times causing the MP to bleed profusely.
The development is believed to have led to the exchange of punches between the duo.
Although Mr. Bissue had refused to talk to journalists about the fight, the MP has confirmed the incident.
He is said to be nursing some wounds at the hospital following a finger injury, media reports say.
The Western Regional sect of the party is expected to summon the two to resolve the matter.
