Uva council up for grabs!

The usual chess game in the provincial councils has begun in the wake of the changes in their power equation following the general poll. 



For instance, moves and counter-moves by interested parties to capture the power of the Uva council and to gain their own political goals are said to be raising the political temperature in the province. 

The balance of power in the Uva council tipped in favour of the Betel leaf party when several Green party councillors won Diyawanna seats. Meanwhile, a move was made by Betel leaf members of the council to promote their colleague Charming Chamara (CC) as the new Provincial Chief.  CC already elected to Diyawanna at the recent poll welcomed the move for he wished to be the provincial chief rather than an ordinary Diyawanna member!

The news about the move to make CC the provincial chief was sweet music to a certain former turncoat Ministerial one from Uva who lost the Diyawanna seat but headed the defeated ones on the district list. And he is to succeed CC as a Diyawanna member in the event of the former giving up his seat to become the provincial chief. So the former Ministerial one had thrown in his full political weight behind CC’s bid to become the provincial chief.

Meanwhile, the Green party stalwarts, determined not  to be outdone, are said to have clinched a secret deal with the King Rooster of the Cockerel  party  to retain the power equation in the council with the support  of the ‘cockerels’ in the council now backing the Betel leaf.

If the King Rooster decides to prop up the Green party administration of the council in Uva, it will shatter the dreams of both CC and the former Ministerial one. However, given the King Rooster’s unpredictable nature, political observers are wary of making a prediction either way
