Naruto’s Strongest Force - Chapter 260
“I know. I’ll be there right away.”
Natsuki walked into the conference room and saw Jiraiya dressed as if he was going on a long trip.
“Yo yo yo, Master Jiraiya actually came to my little place.”
Xia Mu’s mouth was full of anger, and his face didn’t look good at all.
After all, Jiraiya had been an accomplice of the third generation before.
It would be strange to give him a good look.
Jiraiya was a little embarrassed. In fact, he didn’t want to do anything like that.
But he didn’t want Uchiha and Konoha to fight.
Xia Mu didn’t look good on the surface, but he was thinking secretly in his heart.
Tendo Pain has been showing off his power recently, and the Third Hokage may not be able to bear it any longer.
Jiraiya should have gone to Konan and the others. Now Jiraiya still regards Nagato as the son of the prophecy.
“Natsuki, you know the recent war situation in the Kingdom of Water, right?”
Xia Mu held his head high, not cooperating at all: “Do I know? Hey, I don’t know, I forgot.”
Jiraiya smiled bitterly: “Natsuki, please stop playing tricks on me. I want to ask you, do you know where Konan and the others are?”
Natsuki touched his chin, Jiraiya was indeed looking for the three of them.
But now Nagato Konan doesn’t want to see Jiraiya.
Xia Mu snorted coldly, paused for a few seconds, and then said impatiently:
“I’m not sure. Xiaonan took the initiative to contact me before.”
“After the last incident, they never contacted me again.”
“But what is certain is that Xiaonan and the others should be in Yuyin Village.”
“That’s all the information I know. You can listen to it if you want to, believe it or not.”
“I still have something to do, so I won’t accompany you.”
After saying that, Xia Mu walked out directly.
Jiraiya was shocked, but he was very thick-skinned and didn’t take it to heart.
And he felt that Xia Mu didn’t lie to him.
Natsuki had left, so Jiraiya had no choice but to leave.
Chapter 313 Nomination of the Fifth Generation
Except Fugaku who is doing eye cloning. The other elders have gathered together.
All the elders have received the news in advance.
Knowing that this meeting was probably due to the sudden end of the war between Kumogakure and Kirigakure.
And, some recent actions of the Uchiha clan.
I have to say that Uchiha has been winning lately.
Because of the war between Kumogakure and Kirigakure, the third generation did not want to fight with Uchiha at this juncture.
An honorary elder position was given to Uchiha Natsuki.
Natsuki also took advantage of the fact that the third generation didn’t want to start a head-on war and made trouble crazy.
Directly spend money to buy off various races.
Spend money to bribe Kakashi.
Even the Hyuga clan was bribed by him.
In recent days, rumors that are unfavorable to the third generation have spread throughout Konoha Village.
The third generation of Hokage also saw tricks.
He did not deny the rumors.
Instead, he pushed Orochimaru out directly.
Put Orochimaru’s cloning technology to the forefront.
Many years ago, everyone would take a detour when seeing Orochimaru.
At this time, everyone is begging to see Orochimaru.
There are so many crippled jonins, all hoping to have their limbs intact.
The family also hopes that these people can regain their fighting strength.
Contribute to the family.
Orochimaru was very enthusiastic when he saw these people now.
After all, these people voluntarily accepted cloning. If the cloned limbs mutated, they would pay Orochimaru to re-clone him.
It’s like paying Orochimaru to give him a guinea pig.
Although Orochimaru failed once, it would cost millions worth of materials.
But the value created by rescuing a disabled jounin must far exceed this number.
This resulted in a result that everyone was very satisfied with.
Orochimaru’s reputation in the village has been increasing recently.
Everyone is speculating that the three generations will take action again at this meeting.
The Third Hokage knocked on the table with his pipe:
“This war between Kumogakure and Kirigakure ended suddenly.”
“The ninja world should be at peace in the near future.”
“Some of the preparations we made before can also be stopped.”
The third generation looked at Uchiha Natsuki with playful eyes.
“In recent years, I feel that my energy is not as good as before, and I can’t deal with various government affairs in Konoha.”
“I have decided to officially elect the Fifth Hokage!”
The people below were in an uproar.
The elders all thought that the third generation held a high-level meeting because of the war between Kumogakure and Kirigakure, and even the appearance of the leader of the Akatsuki organization.
Unexpectedly, the Third Hokage mentioned the war in just one sentence.
The matter of the leader of the Akatsuki organization was not even mentioned.
The selection of a new Hokage can be proposed by someone below, or it can be decided by the current Hokage.
The current Hokage’s decision to elect the next Hokage represents his resignation.
Unexpectedly, the Third Hokage actually resigned on his own initiative.
Everyone looked at Xia Mu. Xia Mu narrowed his eyes slightly and didn’t know what he was thinking.
The Third Hokage pressed it with his hand.
Everyone fell silent.
Everyone was wondering when the confrontation between Uchiha and the Third Hokage would end.
Unexpectedly, the Third Hokage flipped the table over.
Don’t give Uchiha more time and opportunities to achieve political achievements.
The Third Hokage clearly knows what Natsuki is like. If Uchiha is allowed to continue his activities, maybe Natsuki can come up with more ideas.
Let the other elders vote for the new Hokage.
Instead of doing this, it is better to do it yourself and take the initiative in your own hands.
“Does anyone have any objections?”
The third generation scanned the entire audience, but everyone knew that the third generation was asking Uchiha Natsuki.
Sure enough, Uchiha Natsuki stood up.
“The Third Hokage has worked hard and made great contributions. He has worked hard over the years and made so many contributions to Konoha. It is indeed time to take care of himself.”
“I, the Uchiha clan, also feel that a new Hokage should lead us Konoha to a new level.”
“I, Uchiha Natsuki, believe that I can bring better development to the village.”
Xia Mu looked around and said in a clear and powerful voice:
“As the honorary elder of Konoha Village and the leader of the Uchiha clan, I declare my participation in the election of the Fifth Hokage.”
Everyone looked at each other. Uchiha was facing him head-on.
The Third Hokage seemed to have expected it: “According to regulations, the nomination of honorary elders requires voting. How many people agree that Uchiha Natsuki participates in the election?”
In the new Hokage election, the right to nominate lies with the Hokage and the advisory elders.
But as long as you have the position of honorary elder, you can also nominate.
But the nominees must go through a vote.
If the vote fails, the nomination fails.
Natsuki raised his hand: “Fugaku and I vote.”
Because Fugaku didn’t come, Natsuki said something.
Hizu and Hizashi looked at each other and raised their hands.
Five other elders raised their hands.
A total of only nine votes were cast in favor.
But there was no trace of disappointment on Xia Mu’s face.
Instead, he said with a smile: “I have received 9 votes for approval.”
The third generation frowned slightly: “Who are the next people who oppose Uchiha Natsuki’s participation in the election?”
Sitting on either side of the Hokage were Koharu, Mito Kaden, the Shimura family, and the Sarutobi family who voted against it.
The Nara, Akimichi, Yamazaka, and Inuzuka clans all remained silent. Not speaking out was tantamount to giving up.
Two other elders voted against it.
The total number of dissenting votes was only 6.
Xia Mu nodded with satisfaction and sat down.
The Third Hokage’s eyes swept over the various clans.
These are the people who have recently received Natsuki’s money. When it comes to voting for Hokage, whether or not to vote for Natsuki is a matter of two opinions.
If you vote against even the nomination, that would be a serious feud.
The third generation knew about Xia Mu’s investment (buying off) various clans.
Now that Xia Mu’s nomination was successful, he didn’t say much more.
“I nominate my disciple, Orochimaru, to run for the fifth generation of Hokage.”
