The power of the absorbing storm before the election
[Refers to the attempts to absorb MPs and their groupings before the coming elections. Many parties are trying to attract well-known and famous politicians to join their team, particularly the junta. These MPs are powers in their region and will win one way or another. The critical factor is what party they will be a part of and who they will support as PM.
This is also referred to as political vacuum cleaners.]
