Hide & Seek
There has been high drama at Kotha that is Siri, following the
Elephant Party's humiliating defeat at Uva. Stating that the party has
been rejected wholesale by the people in Jaffna and Vavuniya too, the
Green Party rebels have launched a fresh move to oust Ra-Blue, this time
"Are you going to be our Presidential candidate?" Lucky Sene
questioned Ra-Blue at the Wok Com meeting of the Elephant Party. "Put
your hands on if you believe that our leader could win at least third
time?" the Em Pee posed a question. Not a single member raised a hand as
Ra-Blue looked down with a sorrowful face.
Kind-Siri in tears
Doc Hand-Pattu and Walapane Renu were unkind to Kind-Siri who broke
into tears after complaining about the Elephant party's controversial
method of nominating an Em Pee to Kool-Ya-Pitiya Saba that is Pradeshiya.
Kind-Siri alleged that the party has appointed Ah-Killar Vee-Raj's
catcher, who has a lesser number of preferential votes.
Retired Big Lady
Run-jeet Middle-Bandara querried Ra-Blue whether the party is going
to accommodate the Retired Big Lady from the list that is national at a
future election. But Ra-Blue said it would be done only with the consent
of the Wok Com. "You have no shame, if you bring that shameless person I
will resign from the party," he threatened.
Ten per cent
Tree-Man has predicted a ten per cent voting for the Elephant Party
at the forthcoming Southern PC elections. "Our party was a giant tree in
the past with a heavy vote base. It became a mango plant at Uva with
only 15 per cent.
Very soon it would turn into buffalo grass as we could muster less
than 10 per cent in the South," he told the WoK Com.
Amidst speculation of an election that is general, two Green Party Em
Pees have given a firm guarantee to the governing types of a crossover
during the next Bud-Jet. The names would be kept a secret until the last
moment to keep their party leaders guessing.
