Anwar and Zaid”Significant Announcements..?”

Natasha received a message from her former colleague telling her that “Tomorrow there might see some fireworks in PKR. Anwar will address a rally while Zaid will have a PC. Article will be up later.” 


We reposts the article for the benefit of all:-

PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim is scheduled to hold a rally at the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) auditorium tomorrow where he is expected to speak on the latest developments in the party.

NONEAccording to one of his aides, Anwar (right) is expected to touch on the need to close ranks, on the eve of the final round of voting by party divisions.

“The party has undergone a lot of criticism. I believe he will address this and the need for the party to strengthen itself,” said the aide.

Last week, PKR vice-president Azmin Ali announced that Anwar will be delivering a “special address” at tomorrow’s event to explain the latest developments within the party.

The party has been in a state of disquiet and assaulted by public criticism over the tussle for the party deputy presidency, involving Azmin, Mustaffa Kamil Ayub and Zaid Ibrahim.

Even before accepting nominations, Zaid has been accusing party leaders of conspiring against him and being a victim of their smear campaign.

After two weekends of polling Zaid was just a tad behind Azmin but declared his withdrawal from the contest because of widespread “malpractise and electoral fraud”, without formally writing in on the decision.

He also placed the blame for the situation on Anwar and Azmin and urged them to step down.

Zaid to explain resignation from PKR

Anwar had mostly stayed away from the fray until today, when he insinuated that Zaid had failed to serve the party despite the amount of special privileges heaped on him as a new member.

NONEZaid’s (left) theatrics have attracted strong criticism against the PKR which has repeatedly denied malpractices in the elections while urging detractors to back their allegations with proof.

Meanwhile, Zaid is scheduled to hold a press conference tomorrow at 10.30am at his residence to explain his decision to quit PKR.

Over the next few weeks, he is expected to hold a series of private meetings with supporters across the country.


N43 Ngemah”Will BN outboxed Pakatan and PCM..??”

N43 will not only see three parties fighting it out to be the “Peoples Representative for the area’. The word on the ground is that there will also be a number of independants who will play the role of spoilers.

A voter from the Ngemah who requests anonymity said,” Gabriel Adit won as independant candidate during the last election and now as head of  PCM Sarawak he will much stronger.THIS WILL SURELY BE A GOOD TESTS FOR THE PARTIES INVOLVED.”

Love or Loathe Him Gabriel Adit knows how to position himself and must not be taken lightly.

 We have earlier wrote a comprehensive article and it received an overwhelming response from readers:- 

NGEMAH N43 will be a Very Interesting and Bitterly Contested Seat.

Pakatan Sarawak”NO MORE ONE WAY TRAFFIC..”

When in doubt the common basic instinct of a human being is TO ASK. It seems that BN Sarawak knows where its weakness lies and before they get trounced in this particular field they SEEK HELP AND ASSISTANCE.

So what have they come up with?

This is what they have to say to the Pakatan cybermachinery who clearly has led but recent efforts has seen BN catching up and gaining tremendously.


Umno Youth New Media Unit chairman Tun Faisal Ismail Aziz said the party, together with the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera (PBB) Youth New Media Unit, would work closely to come up with an aggressive strategy to counter baseless allegations which might be posted over the internet.

“Specifically, we will coordinate any information with the PBB Youth New Media Unit so that any national issue that has bearing with Sarawak could be handled and explained very quickly ,” he told reporters after a meeting chaired by PBB Youth Media Unit chief Abdul Aziz Tan Sri Adenan here Sunday.

“For us, at national level, we must explain the real issue and disseminate it very quickly so that the people will not be easily influenced by baseless allegations,” he said, adding that apart from national issues, Umno would assist in disseminating information on issues affecting Sarawak, such as that of the Penan.

He said the March 2008 general election had given the Barisan Nasional component party a valueable lesson on the need to effectively tackle the cyber war campaign.

Abdul Aziz, who is also PBB Youth Information chief, said one of the strategies being adopted would involve answering or explaining any issue without resorting to personal attacks.



Anwar “Macam Tok Kah Zaid..??”

Oooh la la ,” TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.?”

 Zaid could not have described any better on Anwar Ibrahim. This was what was said about Anwar,”“I do not know whether he tolerates (dissent) or not, but only his views count,”

Zaid when on to say this,” Anwar made changes that he could not accept, and eventually discovered that it was difficult to work with the de facto party leader.”

It’s not so much on the article of Zaid Forming a new party but on Anwars way of governance which will be detrimental in so far as patching up the already leaked holes from within. True, every political party does have their own BLACK DAYS especially when it comes to internal party elections.


The internet portals article:-

It appears inevitable that former Federal Territories PKR chief Zaid Ibrahim will leave the party and set up his own, judging from interviews with two pro-Umno dailies published today.

NONEZaid (right) had previously announced during a dialogue in Kedah that he plans to form a “Keadilan baru” should he be sacked from PKR.

“I have announced this and I will do it on a small scale. No problems. I don’t want politics that is meant just for power which adopts methods that are not beneficial to the people.

“The new party will be based on a struggle for democracy and a government that is accountable and transparent. If I win one or two seats, God willing, I will be very grateful,” Zaid told Umno-owned Mingguan Malaysia today.

In the same breath, Zaid said that he has no major plans for politics and concedes that there are concerns that the new party would benefit the BN and weaken the opposition.

He claimed that the opposition now was no different from the BN and thus the new party has a role to encourage both sides to reform and transform.

“I am not interested in determining who rules the country, but how it is being run. If what I am doing will weaken the opposition, I don’t know lah.

“But if the opposition is already weak and there is no cooperation or real struggle, then they really weak,” he said.

He said that he has always based his politics on issues and policies and stressed that he has no intention of becoming prime minister or opposition leader.

‘I want to be in Parliament by 2012’

In another interview with New Straits Times, Zaid said that he will leave PKR if the options present themselves, and said that he might even be sacked.

He stressed that he will continue to speak up for the public as long as his views are considered relevant, and that he will voice what he thinks the country needs.

“If can, I want to go back to Parliament in 2012. I will have to find a seat somewhere. If I have to form my own party, I will do it. Maybe not a big party. I will do what I feel,” he said.

Zaid added that he will support Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak on certain issues based on their merit, and that he was also free to criticise both the BN and the opposition.

Asked if he would consider contesting for Parliament as an independent, Zaid skirted the question and instead hinted that he may be following the footsteps of Labour Party founder Tan Chee Khoon.

“I remember Tan Chee Khoon, who was a respected parliamentarian. He was Mr Opposition because the opposition then was very small.

“But I will have my style if there is a place for that role in Parliament,” he said.

‘I don’t see myself in PKR’

Zaid dismissed Mingguan Malaysia‘s question if he was interested in joining Pakatan Rakyat allies PAS and DAP instead of forming a new party.

“With my image now, no one wants to take me in. They will say that Zaid is a troublemaker. I don’t want to join either party; moreover, I am old.

“I want my political career to end in a party which reflects my idealism. Whether this will come to fruition is another story.

“I would prefer that one day, I am seen as a reformist who tried to help bring maturity to the process of democracy in this country,” he said.

To another question by NST, Zaid concurred when suggested that his days in PKR are numbered.

“Of course. I don’t think I can work with (PKR de facto leader) Anwar (Ibrahim). That is why I suggested the solution; Anwar must go. But in reality, it is not possible.

“But I don’t see myself in PKR. I just don’t want to leave now because I want to see my friends around,” he said.

‘Anwar doesn’t tolerate dissent’

Commenting on Anwar, Zaid said that the former deputy premier was not a factor in his decision last year to join PKR.

NONE“If I was mistaken about Anwar (left), so was (former premier) Dr Mahathir (Mohamad) and many other people, so you cannot fault me by that. I was just an ordinary Umno member.

“I did not join PKR because of Anwar, I joined a political party that suited my political beliefs and ideals. I thought PKR is the vehicle but I never joined with my eyes closed.

“It takes a while for you to be convinced of a person. I did not want to be hasty as well. I have heard a lot about him before and when you do not know the person, you give him the benefit of the doubt,” he said.

Zaid said that he had never had a close relationship with Anwar, even during their Umno days.

While in PKR, Zaid said that he and Anwar used to discuss the direction of the party.

However, he said, Anwar made changes that he could not accept, and eventually discovered that it was difficult to work with the de facto party leader.

“I do not know whether he tolerates (dissent) or not, but only his views count,” said Zaid.



Rumours/speculations will just take centrestage when a party after going through a minor crisis seems all calm. It seems some spin doctors are trying to find the achilles heel of SPDP and rock it towards submission. We knew about this a couple of weeks ago but does not want to be an accomplice nor to shake the foundations for the benefit of some selfish few.

Frantic phone calls were abuzz and today its on everyone’s lips. The Borneo Posts story headlined “Rumours of Balang quitting SPDP’s sec-gen post quashed.The article can be read HERE:

SG On behalf of SPDP Pending Division we would like to stand behind you and dedicate this song to you. We are sure the whole SPDP party from the President,Supreme council down to the grassroots of each division are steadfastly and fully saying,” You’ll never walk alone ”     

“From Caning Son to Father’s Issue..??”

An old schoolmate from overseas called me and said,”What is really happening in Malaysia now? In our younger schooldays we used to eat together from different religious backgrounds in school canteens and there are no segregation. Are we going backwards or what? Next they will be HALAL Canteen Certificates  i presume for schools? Is it because of politics and the little napoleans that our children are now suffering the religious and disharmony that is in our schools? Its rather unfortunate and this has got to stop.

Do something was his final message. Can we..??

We have covered it in detail and there was also an apology from the senior assistant of St. Thomas’ Primary School, Iskander Fadeli. The full article can be read here .

Our earlier article :- However that is not the question now. It is getting political and the can of worms might just start creeping out.

Now Independent MP Zulkifli Noordin wants the Home Ministry to investigate Beginda Minda @ Noor Azman, whose 10-year-old son was caned for bringing pork to a school in Sarawak, whom he now claims has dual identities – that of a Muslim and a non-Muslim. The full article can be read HERE…

audie61 called up Beginda Minda at 9.31am this morning and we needed him to clear a few grey areas. He said that the documents are with him and a certain Datuk Misnu from Majlis Islam Sarawak was the signatory in his letter. He even sms later at 10.01am ,”Yes 100 PERCENT BRO

We honestly thought that events have overtaken us and did not want to pursue this matter until my schoolmate called 19.49 pm. This is something which each and everyone of us can play a part by telling the person next to us that we live in a multiracial,multiethnic,multi religious country and we must not compromise the PEACE and SECURITY of our country.

We are born here and we must TAKE CARE OF MALAYSIA. Religious extremism and fanatism must not rear its uglyhead or else this country will go to the DUMPS.



In politics Nothing is Impossible. A WIN IS WIN.

BN Sarawak will go all out to protect the candidates that will bring them success. Our SPDP Privelege source said to audie61,”You see N45(O00ps N54 sorry..reader informed tks) might just be swapped with  N66. Both are Assistant Ministers and it might just work for both parties concerned since SUPP has declared in a PC today that they have not considered Larry Sng to contest in the 19 seats allocated to SUPP”

Even in the Borneo Posts for the last few days this issue has been played up where the SPDP President William Mawan said,”We have the areas but we don’t mind swapping or exchanging areas so long a Barisan wins. That is the most important thing,”

Meanwhile PRS President James Masing has said,”

‘Pelagus not open for talks’

The floodgates opened when the Chief Minister last weekend at a function in Miri in his speech put it out openly,“(Even) if they are not party members, as long as they support the government, as long as they got something to contribute, bring them in (and) get them to be candidates,”

There will be a solution and it might just be this N54 and N66 Swapping symbols and seats.

Can we rule this out ?

Our Privilege source insists that when CM Taib calls it during the BN meeting for the winnable candidates no one would even dare to challenge him unless they are prepared to face the consequences.

 Then again at that particular time BN might just LISTEN or….
