The election was over and the party secretaries were called upon to hand the National Lists of their respective parties to the Elections Commissioner.
By this time, the Compassionate One as the leader of the Betel leaf party had removed Betel leaf secretarial one from his post and appointed a professor in his place to function in an acting capacity.
This sudden development saw both former Secretarial one and the new appointee claiming the right to finalize the official Betel leaf National List and handing over it to the Elections Commissioner.
The Betel leaf leaders who held an emergency council over the unexpected development pressed the deposed secretarial one, the original custodian of the List to seek legal redress. They also decided that they should go to the Supreme Court and not to any lower court.
The Betel leaf secretarial one who was at the vanguard in the battle waged to bring the former strongman back to Diyawanna as the PM now appeared to have lost all his fighting spirit. He put his foot down saying he was not prepared to get involved in litigation over the issue.
“Instead of wasting time in courts, let us talk to the new big boss to reach a compromise solution. I think I can strike a deal to share the slots on the National List fifty-fifty,” he said.
