Its nothing unusual when elections are upon us. There will be intense lobbying by all concern to push for their favoured candidates. The two Bukits and one Batang byelections will see many Warlords and HIDDEN HANDS at odds with each other.
Even the parties within the respective coalitions will try to meddle and try their party’s luck by pushing one or two suitable names for consideration. They say ,”the star will shine on those who try hard enough”
This is also WHY so many HIDDEN HANDS are ready to get their reputations and hands dirty. A YB and MP in the house is like winning a lottery for them be it an opposition or within the ruling government.
audie 61 made a few phone calls to the respective parties involved in Bukit Selambau,Bukit Gantang and Batang Ai. The common answer,”Its really intense lobbying and we cannot even have time for proper meals.” That’s the usual recommendations/cover letters and you know the MUMBO-JAMBO of Malaysian Politics.
But one thing is that the political runners and HIDDEN HANDS involved said,”If Hillary Clinton can close ranks and ensure Obama wins we are sure to be able to do that.”
Will Malaysians be able to do that? Its the usual excuse when the partys anointed hopeful candidate loses and talks of infighting and sabotaging emerges. This is Politics or else it will be darn boring.
Of course,there will be some disappointed faces who has spent so much time and effort to assist the power players in this rather fluid political game. Even lawyers reputations are double checked by the respective parties just in case they are needed for some clarifications during nomination time. No stones are left unturned.
There is also the standby candidate just in case at the eleventh hour the chosen candidate does a U-TURN for some unknown reasons. I’m sure thats why the Sarawak CM Pehin Taib has requested for a few names to be considered for Batang Ai. There has been too much speculations that the PRS candidate is not the one favoured and PRS will be helpless again.
Informed sources from Kedah and Perak also said this is the usual tactic practised by their respective parties. Sarawak should be no different from the both the other states.
So much speculations or gossips are only done by the spin doctors as diversionary measures. It gets TOO HOT most times and loud,rude and over the top voices are heard from the politicians concerned. Intense lobbying I’m sure says a party faithful..??
We say as always,” The WARLORDS and HIDDEN HANDS will throw down the gauntlet and its up to the parties concerned to consider and approve their favoured CANDIDATES. Need we know more OF WHAT ELSE is involved..??
