916 is supposed to be the “GREATEST EVENT” for some in Malaysia’s history when the Federal government changes “SHIRT”. Short of saying,”Taken over.” Anwar who seems to be throwing stones at the window frames of Putra Jaya and has also added in the ‘kitchen sink’ wants to negotiate now. When there is a call for a meeting of top officials as reported by Malaysiakini portal http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/89660 and agreed by Pakatan Rakyat leadership council which requested Anwar to meet the Prime Minister it augurs well for the country.
I have often said that the country does not need uncertainty and unstability. We have legislators from both houses and there are all,”Peoples Representatives” and Malaysia needs you to chart her future instead of too much politiking. 916 was conceptualise by the opposition to rattle the government and as much as they want to deny it,”It worked” To me 916 was a cleverly thought out “POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT” like COCA COLA’S 1969 slogan inplanted in ones brain “IT’S THE REAL THING”
These two statements by Anwar if its to be dissected and analyse carries with it a strong political message,”
- It’s about the future direction of this country without specifically speaking about the transition.”
- The priority is political stability. It’s not an issue of deferring, we have the number to move and we will move according to the mandate.
To us its the Aftermath of 916 which everyone will turn to. That window of oppurtunity which Yong Teck Lee likes to call it closes and I couldn’t agree more. Aftermath is an agricultural term meaning the grass growing after the first cut of hay. No wonder the BN MPs were shipped of to “Taiwan” says my niece of 12 years old as she interjected in our conversation of the agricultural study trip. Must be Aftermath..! Yea Aftermath..! You are correct,you are correct. It is very clear that even at dinner table this “916” is being discussed.
Abdullah did say a couple of weeks ago that the BN will not just crumble under the onslaught of opposition calls for a change and peoples power to take over during September 16th 2008. If I may quote from a local daily in which Datuk Amar James Wong as a delegate to the Malaysia Solidarity Consultative Committee that this is the date ‘SARAWAK gain independence” Anwar uses this date to entice the people of Sarawak and Sabah to say,”this is the day MALAYSIA was formed.” It has been politicised says the former Sarawak Cabinet Minister who is now 86 years of age but he played a pioneering role in Malaysia’s formation and placing the nation in the eyes of the world. With his wittiness and bagful of useful phrases and proverbs he sees 916 as a stepping stone where the line is being drawn for a Equitable Malaysia.
If and when Anwar does meet PM it will obviously be after 916. Imagine this scenario and it might just happen,” I’m sure PM will say to Anwar “916” was brilliant and you had me working overtime.I’m still here and lets see what you have to say now that its the Aftermath. You still want to come out with another concept and programme. ” Ada Lagi Kah..? ”
Abdullah might suggest this to Anwar ” GE 13″ Stabilty is ensured and the ISA arrests is stopped and we are both happy. You are afterall like you say Anwar “Prime Minister In Waiting” -Tunggu lah GE13″. All is well for Malaysia and lets shake on that and you play your role as opposition to check and balance the government while I administer the country to the bests of my ability. Fair Anwar and Lets take a picture for the Press boys. Headlines,”Malaysia Political Uncertainty Lifted”
This will be good for the country and foreign investors,stock exchange,tourists cancellations to Malaysia will be renegotiated, the effect to the economy will be tremendous and the confidence and morale of the people will be noticeable. UMNO,GERAKAN,MCA, will have their General assemblies and all political parties will engineer their houses together for only one thing,”WIN THE PEOPLE OVER TO PUT THEM AS PARLIAMENTARIANS OR LEGISLATORS IN THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTIONS”
If its so simple I will not be writing this article for you. Politics is afterall the “ART OF INFLUENCING OTHERS.” It’s never been less interesting in Malaysian politics and also so called local Sarawak scene.
Take Parti Rakyat Sarawak. my party for that matter. We have been embroiled in POWER STRUGGLES for over 2years and though the ROS as stated in Malaysiakini’s report,” the Masing faction has claimed victory over the rival faction, and a recent Registrar of Societies’ official reply in response to the department’s show-cause letter has given the party the reprieve.” Meanwhile Larry Sng 29-year-old assistant minister still maintains his position of not recognising rival Dr James Masing as the party leader but he also wants his supporters to carry on their struggle until victory is achieved.
Where is this heading too? What is the aftermath of all this? Obviously there are many who want to say enough and we want a “HOME”. They are so “Afraid” and ‘Selfish” if they can’t even compromise and get to the Bottom of the TRUTH. I want to write but it will be a whole book. Its a simple message to me.
ROS recognises,the State and Federal government recognises what else is there? The truth James is the President as all adminstative matters concerning party matters from the State and Federal are channelled through him and we need to instill in our minds that the battle we went into has been won by James. Even Taib CM and his uncle Tun Abdul Rahman Yaakub after 20 years of not seeing eye to eye hugged and made up. Why..? It’s for political stability and its very matured politiking which ” Harvard ” doesn’t even teach.
Now Anwar wants to meet Abdullah. Good signs don’t you think. Even my 27 year PRS Batu Lintang Divisional Secretary Priscilla ak.June ( picture orange shawl far left) said to me last night,”Bila Boss kita balik rumah.? She added ,”PRS belongs to the people who joins the party for its aims and objectives as much as DAP,PKR ,UMNO,PAS,MCA,PBS,LDP,Gerakan,PBB etc to their followers.”
Political situation has won over adminstrative and constitutional matters and ROS will not want to prolong this case but will hope the parties concern just take it for now and if there is a COURT CASE to be taken up by the injured party it will take years.
I always say there is a cut off period and the aftermath to some is the hardest thing to swallow and it will be like a lump on their throats. Anwar would point to a whole lot of events that has happened which has derailed his “916 Concept” Abdullah has also made his defence and Anwar will just have to lick his wounds and soldier on to the next battle that is”GE13″
