With general elections round the corner, a series of revolutionary changes in the main political parties are taking shape these days. The new leaders of the Blue party have vowed to field under their symbol only impeccably clean candidates at the coming elections and this announcement has created ripples among a powerful section of the party, they say.
A number of politicos blacklisted for their past bad record are to be denied party nomination. Most black sheep about to come under the party guillotine hail from Kelaniya, Kalutara, Ratnapura, Gampaha, Kurunegala, Matale and Rajarata.
Figuring prominently on the black list are once powerful politicos whose names have been linked to large scale corruption, drug and ethanol mafia, acts of thuggary and brazen abuse of political power and authority as seen in instances like subjecting a public official to ridicule and humiliation by tying him to a tree in the presence of the Police. A foul-mouthed woman politician is among those already identified for good riddance as bad rubbish.
Not prepared to be outdone, those to be denied party nomination have already formed a new political alignment which is expected to have the blessings of the deposed Big Boss.
