Anwar,Najib,Nizar,Zambry..Oooooh Perak..NEXT.!!

Are we too good for this? It seems that Perak has once again jolted us with more plots which even the Peraknites don’t even know “What the hell is coming next..?” I was meeting a client from Perak who was here on a recruiting assignment. 

He said,”Just cannot keep up” Let’s just get on with what we are good at and let the Politicians sort it out” Did he really mean it..? Of course not as he was first of the blocks.

Two MBs what a joke for our State and he said even our former PM Dr.M said its hilarious as he read it at the Malaysiakini portal on his phone.

This cannot be happening can it? Whatever has become of our democratic system and governance? Doesn’t the people’s voice count for anything nowadays?

Please tell me and how can I ask local investors or recruit workers to Perak when it the government is not stable. Believe it or not just look at this,” WHAT..?’ This is Next..!! Ooooh no Perak…please save us someone as anger rage from his face and his fists clenched. You see and this was what it was headlined,”Pakatan Perak reps were offered millions to cross over”

Malaysiakini though has this,” Two Pakatan Rakyat state assemblypersons today filed a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) claiming that they were offered millions of ringgit to quit their respective parties and become Independents or join Barisan Nasional (BN).”

DAP’s Keshvinder Singh (Malim Nawar) said he was offered RM20 million while Abdul Yunus Jamsari of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (Kuala Kurau) said the amount offered to him was between RM3 million and RM8 million

Millions mine you,my Perak client said and thats not about it. Thrown into the hat were also appointed posts and logging concessions.Wonder what would I have done if I was given that if I am in the politician now he said.

Wow! a turnaround and that is why some people when they see the ‘COLOURS OF MONEY” or like Tom Cruise who says,”SHOW ME THE MONEY” anything can be compromised and for that.. principles too I suppose. 

I told my client  if only you are a politician cum businessman you could have brokered the deal. Millions and 20% brokerage fee is sufficient. It is a known fact that many HIDDEN HANDS are involved in Malaysian politics wheeling and dealing to get the best deals. This only happens as the country is in a state of insecurity and politicians are usually the “PRICED HIGHLY IN THE POLITICAL MARKET.  

He showed me another report which appeared in the Malaysiakini internet portal,” the offer was made by several agents comprising businessmen who claimed to be representing the Perak BN leadership.”

Wah..! Desperate times call for Desperate measures. It seems its a blame game now and both of Pakatan and BN are getting on at each other and we the Peraknites suffers in the end. We even have to come to Sarawak to look for business. Maybe if this continues close up shop in Perak and Open up shop in Sarawak. Oh Yea..hahaha

So we say as always,” Please BN and Pakatan whoever  it is put the house in order and let the people of Perak carry on with their daily lifes. The Malaysian economy is not exactly healthy and this Political uncertainty in the State of Perak has just got to end.

“Litmus, Acid or Test of Strength”..Its Battle of the 4

Malaysiakini,the Edge and Broken Shield all have headlines like,”Acid Test for Pakatan” “Batang-Ai: more than a litmus tests for support” and the Edge correspondent team posted in Malaysiatoday,”PKR sees Batang Ai as a tests of strength”

PM and BN Chairman Abdullah said already in the national tabloids that BN will certainly defend the Batang Ai N29 Sarawak state seat. He said,”we have to stand because it was a BN seat.How can we not defend the seat…?”

Its very ironic that March the 4th has been penned down as the date when the Election Commission will sit down and fix the nomination and election dates. The EC has received the notice on the vacancy of the Batang Ai state seat this morning.

Sarawak EC director Takun Sunggah was quoted as saying that the notice, signed by Sarawak state assembly speaker Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar, was faxed to the EC headquarters in Putrajaya.

So who amongst the Battle of the 4 will be the common candidate for either the Pakatan and BN.? What will be the determining factor? Who will power broker the choices? At the moment only 4 names are being thrown in the hat and with the EC making March 4 the date of reckoning for N29 Batang Ai there is still sufficient time for the LOBBYISTS

PKR seems to have shortlisted 2 names. PKR state assemblyperson Gabriel Adit told Malaysiakini that the party is“looking for a winnable candidate,” he said, adding that Bawin is among the frontrunners.

Bawin is former president of the Sarawak Dayak National Union (SDNU) as well as former vice-chairperson of the Majlis Adat Istiadat, a state government agency.

Another name mentioned as a likely candidate is popular local Iban politician Jawah Gerang, the former Lubok Antu MP who has not losts in 5 elections.

As for the BN candidate according to our sources there are also 2  in question.The frontrunners seems to be between former immigration officer Naga Alam and Personal Secretary to the late YB Dublin or senior civil servant Nelson Mujah Giri, currently the district officer of Lubok Antu.

A lot of “thoughts,differing opinions,board room party battles,skirmishes and lobbying” amongst the supporters of the 4 candidates will be held between now and the day of announcement of the candidates representing BN- PRS or PKR -Pakatan.

The 4 lobbying parties concerned will ensure that their candidates are chosen over the other as who ever is chosen it will determine who will represent N29 in the State Assembly.

Obviously the VOTERS will have the FINAL SAY but the candidate in question has to be acceptable before they mark X.

We say as always,” Whoever is chosen and wins for the party concern it should be an early GAWAI present.
