Coincidentally, last week the Power Team was preparing to field Polling officers, training was planned etc. etc.

And on the other hand, on the supposed polling day, another event was being considered for cancellation, but another "power team" told the event can carry on.

Seems some knew something, or expected some outcome confidently, and some didn't :D
