September 9, 2012 11 Comments
There is a popular phrase,”Don’t meddle too much or else you will pay the consequences“. We wonder if the next in line to be banned to enter Sarawak will be MP Lim Kit Siang Supremo of DAP.
Is he just trying his wits to meddle in Sarawak’s succession of CM to get the EXTRA POLITICAL MILEAGE needed for Pakatans much needed push for Putrajaya?
SEEMS YOU WILL BE BLAMING CM TAIB NEXT….
This is the article extracted from Malaysiakini portal
In a press release today, Lim noted that Taib had publicly said yesterday that there was no need for a leadership change as the people of Sarawak currently “enjoy peace, political stability and organised development”.Should Taib refuse to step down next April, Lim (left) warned that it would be a serious setback for Najib who revealed in April 2011 that he had brokered Taib’s retirement date.
“It would appear that Taib’s speech today is specially meant for Najib’s ears, with the unmistakable message that he is not going to honour his understanding with (Najib).
“A test of wills between Taib and Najib is currently underway, with Taib thumbing his nose at the Prime Minister, defying Najib to see who can last longer politically.
“Taib is confident that Najib is too weak politically to try to enforce their understanding before the Sarawak elections that he is to be chief minister for only two years,” said Lim.
Midway through the Sarawak election campaign, Najib flew in to provide reinforcement as it was increasingly apparent that BN was losing some ground. Pakatan Rakyat’s campaign had focussed on Taib’s 30 year reign as chief executive of Sarawak and allegations of him amassing an amazing fortune during his tenure at the expense of the environment and the people.
Throughout the campaign, Najib (right) said he had brokered a retirement deal with Taib and even exhorted Sarawakians to “believe“ him.
Under pressure, Taib said during the later stage of the campaign that he would step down in “two years”. But after being sworn-in, Taib became ambigous and said he would leave “mid-term“.
Lim said that come Sept 16, all eyes will be on how Najib handles the prickly subject.
Najib will be leading his entire cabinet to Bintulu, Sarawak for the Malaysia Day celebration on that day and Taib is certain to be present.
“This will also be the most appropriate occasion to clarify whether his understanding with Taib on the latter’s stepping down.. two years after the Sarawak elections, still stands,” he said.
