SPDP/BN got it faults…but here ‘s the news,so have PKR/Pakatan. Let us remind ourselves that NO ONE IS INVULNERABLE.
The ground and written reports have painted this SPDP seat as Greyish/Black and some whispers put it worse than Charcoal Black. That is bad for the morale of the party after going through an internal cleaning up process where the “traitors” have been sacked and new leaders have emerged from within.
There seems to be a hive of activity of leaders lobbying to be chosen to replace the “incumbent Jelaing Mersat” and be the BN candidate eventhough they know it’s an uphill struggle. Why? This is politics some say and Perception plays an important factor more than facts.
Amongst the new leaders who have put their names in the hat are Chambai Lindong, Enturan Luta, Jasmy Sadan Sagi, Dr James Chela, and Barbara Mawan. ( However ground sources have even said that none are throwing their own time FULLY and resources i.e. money to lobby hard unlike the PKR likely candidate Ali Biju.
How true the team of lobbyists they themselves need to ask themselves in the mirror. Have I done enough to deserve the seat? No Need to pint the INDEX FINGERS at me again…
Mawan as an experienced leader needs to make a swift and decisive move and he needs to take the measures which will ensure that the seat remains an SPDP/BN seat come what may.
His trump card will fall back on PKR and Pakatan cannot afford any slip ups as they will feel the rebounds would be greater than just mere words.
This which was written on 17th August 2011,”Word has got to the ears of an aide close to the PKR assemblyman. He said,”any other persons nominated by SPDP our YB will not stand in the parliamentary seat but if SPDP was to renominate Jelaing or put in Nyarok, there is every chance that he will seriously have to reconsider.”
Two of them are are on the way out Ali , and today this for good measure from BorneoPosts on line”There is also talk that Ali, who is from neighbouring Nanga Budu, might withdraw if Mawan is fielded in Saratok.
Ali Biju the Krian ADUN can deny all he can till the cows come home but his words and his ‘gentlemanly political image“ would be swept away in an instant. Let PKR tell him that and you must stand for the party or the coalition will not be able to go to Putrajaya..!!
Mawan himself needs to lead from the front and to stop the lobbyists from “spoiling the party’s chances” he needs to make that Tough decision.
There is a reason that leaders are given that name. It’s because they lead and Mawan Leads his party members and this will Inspire All to drop the negativeness of Saratok P205 as a greyish/black area.
