When people complained about excess votes, some in SLPP retorted that nobody stopped other areas from bringing ‘everybody’ out to vote. In other words, in SLPP areas, every “body” voted. The chickens voted, pussycats voted, puppy dogs voted and even the bush animals came out to vote; the monkeys voted, the baboons voted and the chimpanzees all voted for SLPP during the second rounds of 1996 elections. Every “body” voted. All human bodies and all animal bodies voted.
