P212 Sibu May 16th 2010

The following article extracted from an internet portal

Sibu voters will go to the polls on May 16 after an eight-day campaign with nomination day being set for May 8, announced the Election Commission today.

This will be the 11th by-election in the country after the last general election in March 8, 2008.

azlanSUPP’s Robert Lau Hoi Chew, who was also the deputy transport minister, died on Apr 9 after losing in the battle with liver cancer.

At last count, Sibu has 53,679 voters with a Chinese majority of 60 per cent. There is also a large concentration of Melanau (20%), Iban (18%), Orang Ulu (1.1%) and other races (0.9%).

Lau, who had been Sibu MP under the Sarawak United People’s Party (Supp) flag for five terms since 1990, beat Sarawak DAP chief Wong Ho Leng and PKR’s Lim Chin Chuang in a three-cornered fight in the last general election.

Lau won by a majority of 3,235 votes with 19,138 votes against Wong’s 15,903 and Lim’s 812.

    Do not wait till May 08 to start campaigning. Between now and May 08 BN will as usual drop instant mee projects. The multi million projects supposedly planned and approved for Batang Ai long ago and announced just before the by-election in that constituency was yet again many of BN lies to fish for votes in the rural constituency. As of last week, no construction or development activites seemed to be happening in that area. In short, all Malaysians living in rural Sarawak will forever be at the mercy of BN government led by the white paramount pirate.

    Sibu voters must not leave their ill fate and future to BN anymore. We can see clearly why the tycoons or their sons want to participate in politics through SUPP. It is all because they want to expand their negotiated business empire and be Taib’s proxies.

    A few friends or their relatives are working under the KTS group of companies have been told to vote for SUPP’s Lau Hui Yew in return for special Gawai bonus. It is not surprising that some of the chairmans of petty traders or other associations will use their office to influence their members to vote for BN in return for cash reward.

    Education is the most powerful tool to change the world says Nelson Mandela. Yes, indeed Pakatan Rakyat should give top priority to educate the people and voters about real issues affecting all Malaysians. It is also the moral responsibility of parents, religious leaders, and school teachers and educators to preach to their children, congregations, students about the menace of government corruptions and a corrupted system in our country.

    Let’s work very hard for Pakatan Rakyat candidate in this by-election and the coming state election. Hidup Pakatan Rakyat. Hidup Malaysia.
