The timing cannot be better than this.The Federal government will see a reshuffle in a few days time and Sarawak after a thumping victory for BN Sarawak its almost PERFECT for Sarawak CM Taib.
Of course he will pick his time and we are here not to lobby for our YBs so that they can or will be considered.Those who are already in the cabinet will be wondering though whether they will be retained?
This time its for Real. Speculations were rife then that on 30th May 2008 and the other on August 3rd 2008 that the Sarawak cabinet will be reshuffled to bring in New Blood. It did not materialise.
We wrote then in the first instance,” When the CM was asked back then on the 8th of April when he would reshuffle his cabinet he said it will be after the State legislative assembly sitting.The meeting ended on 14th May 2008.’
The CM of Sarawak has the prerogrative on the final lists. It’s his choice if he adds to the present 24 member cabinet or make minor adjustments to bring in new blood or add in new faces.
Just as he was anticipated to make an announcement he was held up and he said,”“Sarawak is a very calm, nice place. (But) I see some foreign storms trying to be very funny, so you know we’ve got to keep our calm.”
Secondly,word was coming out from the CM’s office that there would be a major reshuffle. It did not materialise and it only involved SUPP Ministers changing roles. What happened then on August 3rd 2008? Could this issue (controversial 12 Dams) or the Anwars factor 916 that has got the better of Pehin Taib?
Now with Malcolm Mussem Lamoh as the newly elected PRS YB there is every chance that he will also be considered. He polled a convincing 3,907 votes against PKR’s Jawah Gerang’s 2,053. On behalf of audie61 and the crew we would like to congratulate him.
PRS has been allocated Two Assistant ministers posts and one is held by Larry Sng who has since remain partyless after the PRS internal crisis.Will he still be considered? I wouldn’t dare to say NO as stranger things has happened. There are also strong vibes that Snwodon Lawan and Mong Dagang are eyeing this appointment if CM does not reappoint Larry.
What about the other YB’s from other parties? Few names are already in the hat and its only a matter of time when they will be released. We were told that the CM that the CM will go through the lists at least 7 times even on the day of announcement.
We wrote on May 15th 2008 on the possibilities of those YB names who will make THE GRADE.Its an interesting puzzle and its always DESTINY and FATE of the person whether he makes it or not.
We say as always,”The days have started to countdown for some YB’s. Some are just hoping to hear the GOOD NEWS….
