Irena: #s 1 and 2 are grammatically correct, but these sentences are a little awkward, e.g. the season really has nothing to do with the election;-) #3--good, but you are missing a verb!

Richard: #1--OK, but there is a number error; 2--good, but maybe it will not turn out to be so propitious;-)#3--good, but note the difference between "few" and "a few".
