Picture taken when Jawah(second left) former MP handed his membership form to PKR SG last year.
Its finally confirmed and DSAI has announced to reporters that he decided on Jawah after gathering various views and feedback from several longhouse elders.
We received our first confirmation from the PA to a PKR YB and its a simple sms,”Jawah” So all speculations and lobbying has ended and the fight to represent N29 will see two heavyweights BN-PRS vs Pakatan-PKR. Others might join in as independants and the nomination date is set for March 29th 2009 while polling will be on 7th April 2009 .
Meanwhile Nicholas Bawin has been appointed as Director Of Operations by DSAI. Many amongst the political fraternity has been saying,”Its a PBDS and also PRS fight“..Is it…??
Who stands to gain we shall see on the 7th of April. Don’t tell us that ‘old wounds would not resurface’..? That we will be very difficult as the rivalry goes a long way back and those on the fringes the ex-PBDS (Party Bangsa Dayak Sarawak) members will see this also as an opportunity to renew this battle.
It will be one heck of a battle and they will not be any stones left unturned. One of the “State Legal Advisor” and Stampin Divisional Chairman See Chee How when contacted by audie61 said,”Nicholas has taken the announcement like a true gentleman and he will be fighting hand in hand together with Jawah to wrestle the seat from BN-PRS” Afterall DSAI has placed his trusts on Bawin as our director of operations and we are “ONE TEAM.”
Don’t read too much into what the mainstream newspapers especially,”Cracks in PKR” says a senior Tupong PKR member. PKR has announced its candidate and it was only common that in any political parties there are people ‘lobbying for their own” This is Politics and it is only good for the party. The final decision rests on the top leadership and we are in unison in Sarawak to engage BN in the battle of Batang Ai.
We say as always,” Former PBDS or PRS vs PKR the choice lies with the VOTERS who will mark the X. Who represents N29 on 7th of April will be known when the results are known.
