Pakatan “Daydreaming in Sarawak..?”

An exclusive Interview by Wong Ho Leng in the internet portal has drawn immediate response and flak from BN leaders. An sms was 1st received from a political observer which says,”WHL confident of denying BN 2/3rds in State.CM taib the reason.Any comments or inputs..??

Some of the  many responses which audie61 received

  •  WHL is daydreaming”

  • “Lets Meet at the Battleground’

  • “DAP overzealous and Overconfident”

  • “36 seats from where..??” 

  • WHL no holds barred after winning.,hmm”

A BN assemblyman who was not too amused by the “cockiness of WHL” responded with his own version Macam pepatah melayu

 ‘baru bertelur sebiji,sudah riuh satu kampung” 

The sms read,” no doubt DAP won Sibu by the slimmest of margin that is not the reflection of rakyat not supporting BN and Taib.Sarawak BN will come back strong after this to deny DAP,PKR and PAS in the next S’wak elections’

WHL can dream on.He can only win the heart of one community out of the 28 we have in S’wak.The balance of the 27 other ethnic group will not be hoodwinked

The whole article  which appeared in the internet portal is posted:-

EXCLUSIVE Sibu MP Wong Ho Leng (left) is riding high on confidence, declaring that Pakatan Rakyat has what it takes to claim Sarawak in the upcoming state elections.

The DAP Sarawak chief – who earned a place in Parliament on his fourth try in the May 16 Sibu by-election – believes the ‘Sibu Miracle’ will extend to the rest of the state.

“We are very confident going into the state elections,” he said in an exclusive interview.

“We are going for state power, but I must admit there are certain difficulties,” he said.

” In the event we do not win state power, we are going for 24 seats to deny the BN government a two-thirds majority.

“It will not be easy but still achievable, on both scores.”

He said that he does not expect long-serving Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud to be an obstacle.

“I think Taib will not be a problem for us. As a matter of fact, I think the Sarawak people have seen enough of Taib,” he said, referring to the chief minister’s near three-decade rule.

He said the Pakatan strategy of using simmering discontent against Taib as the central theme of the campaign had worked in Sibu.

As such, Wong expects as good a response from the rest of the electorate in the state elections, which must be held by July 2012 at the latest.

“We will have the same central theme. I think a lot of people would agree with us, we are not in a quandary.

“How unpopular is Taib? I myself saw a Taib poster hung under a tree in Sibu Jaya (during the Sibu by-election), which is not part of the Bandar Sibu area.

“It is in fact in Dudong (under the Lanang parliamentary constituency)… I don’t know why they hung it in Sibu Jaya.

“Something must be wrong somewhere if even campaigners or workers feel that his poster should not be up in Bandar Sibu.”

Taib’s ‘succession plan’

Wong hinted that rumours about Taib’s retirement and impending succession plan will play into the hands of the state’s fledgling Pakatan coalition, but refused to give anything away.

“I don’t think the people of Sarawak will take his succession plan lightly.

“We have been told there have been succession plans, but those thought able to succeed him were either dropped, or dropped (out) themselves.

“(Taib’s) succession (plan) is going to be a problem. I have one message for Taib – if he doesn’t know how to set out a succession plan, the people can help him in this coming state election. I think the message is very clear to him.”

On Taib’s alleged penchant for using Umno as the bogeyman for Sarawak voters, Wong said the politician is behind time.

“I don’t think that is right at all. Umno has made it very clear that it is not coming to Sarawak, and I don’t think they are not coming because of Taib,” said Wong.

“For me, since everybody agrees with the concept called 1Malaysia, I do not see that any success can be made of the scare tactic that Umno is coming to take over Sarawak.”

Wong admitted that the state Pakatan, which only formalised its ties the week before the Sibu by-election campaign, faces an uphill battle in convincing Sarawakians, particularly the Ibans, to support it.

He said language is one major hurdle in reaching out to the Ibans – the largest ethnic group in the state – because most are poor and uneducated.

“That’s the paradox there. It is most ironic. Not many top echelon leaders are fluent in Iban, including myself, I must admit.

“And to learn Iban you have to be patient, it takes time.

“And yet the election is coming. Probably the formation of Pakatan will help. As much as DAP isn’t totally Chinese-based, we must admit we have more Chinese than Iban and Malay in DAP Sarawak.

“So probably a division of labour between Pakatan parties – DAP, PKR, PAS and Snap – (and cooperation will) bring better results.”

azlanWong said that, in the Sibu by-election, DAP suffered a 2.6 percent drop in support from the Ibans mainly due to the BN’s lavish distribution of money and gifts at longhouses.

“The harder we campaigned in Iban areas, the less support we got. It was ironic. The more we campaigned, the more the money that came in – and the more SUPP and BN played the money game.

“We were not able to receive the amount of support we aimed to achieve (but) we will not give up. A decrease in support does not mean DAP should disown the Iban community.

“Since 1963 when Sarawak joined (the federation) to form Malaysia, Ibans have been poor – 47 years later, Ibans remain poor under the BN formula.

“47 years is a long time and yet how can they be kept poor?

“They must realise that in order for them to be brought out of the cocoon of poverty, (they) cannot depend on BN any more.”

  1. DAP is very confident BN needs to be careful. The groundswell is against BN especially in the urban areas and semi-rural. There might be some seats which in the rural area be a battleground.

  2. Sure WHL and DAP has every right to be confident. You go into battle not to lose but to win and if the general is weak the soldiers will run away. He must show the way and 2/3rd is not impossible. SUPP is considered a whitewash and with some others thrown in it is looking very good for PAKATAN. You better be worried BN YBS.

  3. Go for it,”“We are going for state power, but I must admit there are certain difficulties,” he said.

    ” In the event we do not win state power, we are going for 24 seats to deny the BN government a two-thirds majority.

    “It will not be easy but still achievable, on both scores.”

    WHL really confident and hopefully the balloon does not burst hahahaha

  4. OMG how can one turn so suddenly given the win.Imagine if Pakatan comes to power WHL will be even more proud. No way and BN will still rule Sarawak after the next state elections.

  5. Taib will have to go after the elections if the coalition disappoints. The feedback is that everyone wants him to go before he is forced out. Knowing Taib he will fight all the way. Good for Pakatan.

  6. Taib has over achieved and thats for sure.Cannot write it all here as too long. One thing though he has made himself tons and tons of $$$$$$$

  7. Mr Taib Mahmud had asked the voters in Balingian to continue to support BN although the people didn’t like him.

    Mr Taib Mahmud knows that with the demise of UMNO controlled BN all the corrupted UMNOputras and BN leaders in East Malaysian states will be investigated. When Pakatan Rakyat takes over Putrajaya all UMNOputras and BN leaders including Mr Taib Mahmud will lose their immunity and protections . The MACC, Judicial, PDRM , and the Executive will be revamped and strengthened.

    BN Sarawak reactions are understandable because they are running scared. PAS and PKR in Pakatan are not disuniting Muslims and the Malays nor compromising on the special rights of the poor Malays and Bumiputras who still need government assistance. Pakatan Raykat are against massive corruptions, power abuses, leakages and wastages of the UMNO controlled BN government. Malaysians who supported Pakatan Rakyat’s policies and governance are not anti-government. They are all for good governance and a corrupt free government.

    AS the power to rule a country and a state lies with the people and not with politicians, no Malaysians will want to be hook-winked by themselves. To label the Opposition as anti-government and only knowing how to spread lies and “bark” are insulting the intelligence of the very people who hold the power to vote a government of their own choice. UMNO controlled BN is losing itself as the people’s choice and Malaysians are not only voting against BN but they have PR to vote for now.

    UMNO controlled BN may actually be a good and effective Opposition party to offer check and balance on the Pakatan Rakyat government when the role has been reversed.

    After 52 years of mismanagement by UMNO controlled BN government Pakatan Rakyat has passed the test as a viable alternative and earns the right to be the government in waiting.

    It is no coincident that more than 60% of Sarawak are still undeveloped and more than 70% of the rural populations are living on less than RM700.00 income per month.

    It is no coincident that about 20% of sub-urban areas like Santubong, Bako, Batu Kawa, Matang, and Siburan, just to name a few are still deprived of basic electricity and treated water.

    Such is the direct results of mismanagement, corruptions and abuse of power of the UMNO controlled BN government in Sarawak led by the paramount pirate Mr Taib mahmud and all his stooges in the BN component.

    Malaysians in Sarawak and including our oppressed and helpless brothers and sisters living in remote and undeveloped parts of Sarawak can not only deny the highly corrupted regime 2/3 majority and YES, WE CAN CHANGE THIS CORRUPTED REGIME in the coming state election. Together with our brothers and sisters in Sabah, we can deny UMNO of its fixed deposits in East Malaysia.

    CHANGE WE CAN. SARAWAK4CHANGE. VOTE PAKATAN RAKYAT.

  8. Like you said before mata Kuching, Pakatan Rakyat government shall locate, freeze and confiscate all of Taib’s and cronies’ properties, money and all investments spanning the globe.

    Payback time Mr Taib!

  10. To all Malaysians including myself. An inspiring speech and appeal by Hannah Yeoh of DAP.

    So many people have been telling me just how frustrated they are with the current political situation in our country. Some have told me that they regretted voting for change because of the political instability now and would prefer returning to their old style of voting – vote for stability and forget about having a stronger opposition and greater check and balance. I shudder at the thought of this!

    One needs to remember the reason why we are seeing such great resistance for change is simply because there is much to lose for those who have been in power for so long. For decades there has been so much abuse of power, unchecked misuse of public funds and plain dirty corruption. With a stronger opposition now, they stand to lose their illegal sources of income and some may even be charged and sent to prison if they are found guilty. With this in mind, they will fight at all costs to reclaim back power and to ensure they can continue to steal public funds from the people for their own enrichment. We are not just dealing with differences in politics; we are combating evil forces who will not rest till they secure back their powers and illegal sources of income.

    Sometimes I feel equally frustrated and disillusioned about the political situation too. Sometimes I lie awake thinking of how to effect change in this land. Some days I cry while driving in between meetings thinking of what’s left for the future generation in this land if we give up now. I have endured much verbal attack from political enemies, accusation after accusation of me not doing anything for my constituents and etc. No one truly understands the resistance we face daily in discharging our duties except for my fellow PR assemblymen. Robert Kennedy once said *Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator and change has its enemies.*

    Our enemies are resisting change but we must stand firm and continue to push for a competent, accountable and transparent government. At the end of each day, as I lay myself to sleep, I ask God for strength, wisdom and protection to face the next. I look forward to the end of the term when I can tell the people of Subang Jaya that I have remained clean and have not stolen any of the taxpayers’ funds.

    As reminded by Raja Petra in his blog “*Please continue your struggle to make Malaysia a better place for our future generation. This country belongs to them and it is for them that we struggle.”

    All hope is not lost. Come the next election, vote out the corrupt once and for all. Hang in there supporters and friends, the best is yet to come!

    Hannah Yeoh

  11. Ho :idea: Ho :lol: Ho :lol:
    :idea: DARE TO DREAM n DREAM WILL SURELY COMES TRUE :idea: PR STILL n ALWAYS WILL BE MY NO 1 CHOICE WHETHER RAIN OR SHINE :idea:

  12. isnt that confidence breeds success. Imagine what will the responses be from the BN if DAP says that it will not be able to repeat its SIBU success. SOUP will be LOL.

  13. The only way Taib Mahmud might be able to save his own skin and protect his ill-gotten wealth is to pull Sarawak out of Malaysia and install himself the absolute Sultan of Sarawak!

  14. Day Dreaming you asked, Audie??

    Well, THE MAJORITY OF US ARE ALL DREAMING THE SAME DREAM then!

    What are we doing about it? Well, we are registered and getting people to register to vote!

    One person gets two others to register and in turn they do the same. U do the Math!

    So dreaming? Of course, we are dreaming the same dream as YB Wong Ho Leng for a better future for all Sarawakians and Malaysians!

    Time for change!

  15. Ho :idea: Ho :idea: Ho :idea:
    :lol: CHANGE A MUST :lol: FOR BETTER N BRIGHTHER FUTURE FOR ALL MALAYSIANS :lol:

    :idea: THINK POSITIVE THEN IT WILL BE POSITIVE :idea:

    :idea: THINK NEGATIVE THEN IT WILL BE NEGATIVE :idea:

    :lol: GOD BLESS ALL POSITIVE THINKING PAKATAN RAKYAT LEADERS N ALL MALAYSIANS TO LIVE IN PEACE N COMES TOGETHER AS ONE STRONG BIG TSUNAMI PEOPLES POWER FORCE TO KICK OUT THOSE CORRUPTED TO THE CORE N RACIST B-END LEADERS ONCE AND FOR ALL :lol:

  16. Ok lah WHL indeed one egg too noisy but why Taib just so worried unlike before any opposition noise he simply ignored couldn’t care less. Anyway, its fun to see EC being caught pants down in Sibu, really struggling to mix and match undi pos huh! Taib must worry for KM3 musuh dalam kelambu, not DAP or PKR. For now, let us all look forward for joyous happy SUPP funeral day!
