Chong “You Said…..??”

In this statement in an internet portal Chong Chieng Jen MP/ADUN Sarawak said,”On seat allocation within Pakatan, Chong said a few glitches need to be ironed out.

19/2/2011 Latest From:-

“But I don’t think there will be any problem for DAP, PKR, PAS and Sarawak National Party to reach an agreement,”

We are taking our calculators out now. This should be EASY………

There are 71 seats available in Sarawak. PKR Sarawak earlier indicated 42 seats,DAP 18 seats which leaves PAS and SNAP to share the remaining spoils/seats. Did PAS say they want all the malay/majority seats..?? PAS VP Mahfuz Omar has already indicated..(source Star 17th feb.2011 SA5)

Ground zero cannot be wrong. PAS and SNAP are looking at getting more seats to remain relevant in the Pakatan Sarawak equation. This is because DAP has not made its stand as Chong has openly stated now,”He does not want to speculate on the number of seats the DAP will contest, as the final list will be decided by the Pakatan leadership.”

Isn’t this an Opening to stake claims for the SEATS..?? 

It has been stated by the   PKR strategy director, Rafizi Ramli that PKR Sarawak is eyeing only 30 winnable seats instead of the 42 which has been stated. Quote:- “We are looking to field PKR candidates in more or less 30 seats in the upcoming Sarawak elections..”


So whats the real figure. Don’t keep confusing us? 71-30-18=23 left.

PAS to tackle if the Pakatan leadership is genorous 5 seats which leaves 18 available for SNAP. (Mind you thats 10 short and 10 people will be fuming and very unhappy )

Now comes the big question SNAP as its now claiming for 28 dayak majority seats.

This is from an internet blog,” More worrying is the ever growing numbers of seats claimed by SNAP. First it was 7. Then it crept to 10. And the latest we hear is that SNAP is claiming a whopping 28 seats out of the 29 Dayak majority constituencies in the state! (We assume SNAP is not claiming Ba’ Kelalan, the seat that PKR state chief Baru Bian is eyeing.) Why is this trending by SNAP worrying? For the simple reason that SNAP is not able to back their claims with solid facts. How can it dream to contest in 28 seats when it cannot even find 28 suitable candidates? Even if, by some sheer Heaven-sent miracle, it manages to find 28 candidates, does it have the machinery to mobilise the grass-root in all 28 constituencies to back and support these candidates….

Is Pakatan Sarawak heading for a disintegration? Tell us something which has not been used to confuse the dayaks? Has there even been a vacuum left for PRS if it does pull out at the eleventh hour to contest? Not being naughty as this was disclosed to us that this might justs happen if the Larry Sng Saga continues to create controversies and displeasure.

The figures do not add up and our mathematician said,”Chong must know something is being planned to that effect and it will galvanise the dayaks to stand solidly with the Chinese DAP.”

 SUPP has somwhat losts its invincibility and its payback time as the Dayaks know under PBDS they won 15 seats while Permas had 5.  

This is an interesting read which we copied and makes sense to the timing of the Pelagus constituency saga:-(the players are still around but this time its taking place 24 years later.Mahathir-former PM,Masing-PRS/BN President Anwar Ibrahim-defacto PKR leader,Taib Mahmud-CM Sarawak for 30 years )

 Accept Reality, group tells CM
Sarawak Tribune, 12 March 1987

KUALA LUMPUR – The group of 28 elected representatives of Bersatu yesterday welcomed Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir’s advice to the Chief Minister, Datuk Patinggi Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud, that the present crisis be handled within the bounds of the State constitution.

Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir was reported as having told the Chief Minister this on Tuesday when he met a delegation of Barisan Nasional leaders from the state at Seri Perdana.

The group also described as “unwise” the calling of a snap state election to solve the crisis.

A spokeman for the group, Dr James Masing of Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS), said that “in the period of political turmoil, uncertainty and the emergence of polarisation in the state, there is no guarantee that issues detrimental to racial harmony and stability will not be brought forth during an election campaign

Dr Masing said this in a statement issued at a hotel here which is the group’s temporary base in the city.

The statement was issued after one of its delegations met Umno Youth head Anwar Ibrahim.

Dr Masing said the group wanted to “get down to the business of the government without delay, for any further delay is bound to afffect the welfare of the people.”

He said that since 28 of the 48 state assemblymen had expressed their loss of confidence in Datuk Patinggi Taib, the Chief Minister was constitutionally bound to tender his resignation and allow the group to form a new government.

He reminded the Chief Minister of the meaning of Article 7-1 of the State constitution which states: If the Chief Minister ceases to command the confidence of a majority of the members of Dewan Undangan Negeri, then unless at his request the Yang di-Pertua Negeri dissolves the Dewan Undangan Negeri, the Chief Minister shall tender the resignation of the members of Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri.”

Datuk Taib and company must accept this because this is what the State constitution provides. The Chief Minister should not cling to power when he knows for certain that he has ceased to command the majority support in Council Negeri. If Datuk Taib truly cares for the people of Sarawak, then he must resign forthwith,” he said.

“Bersatu does not wish to wash dirty linen in public nor involve in mud-slinging because this will only bring about bitter recriminations and will not help to solve the problem. We want to get down to the business of government without delay for any further is bound to affect the welfare of the people.” he added.

He said Tun Rahman has denied an allegation that Tengku Razaleigh and himself are the prime movers in the move by Bersatu. “This allegation is part of Datuk Taib’s effort to pit Bersatu against the Prime Minister,” he added.

The Bersatu group and Tun Rahman fully support the leadership of the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister, he said.

Chong has been very vocal of late and he knows that this is the bests opportunity for PR to stand united to win against BN. BN has already fixed their seat formula PBB-35 SUPP 19 PRS 9 and SPDP 8=71 seats.

BN Sarawak is watching very closely the developments which are being used to erode the coalitions fortress. Major players are jumping on board as they feel that the time is ripe and this is the bests opportunity for them to end the 30 years reign of the Chief Minister. 

What happens will be up to the Voters? PR or BN will put up their winnable candidates and its up to the voters in each of the 71 constituency to choose.

If its up to you and me to tick the winning candidates both of us will know what to do..

    DAP will stand in at least 18 seats. We will go all out against SUPP. This is one heavy battle and it will determine whether the Chinese have losts interests in SUPP.

    • Asri Rahman says:

      Any individuals and party in BN still in denial mode and openly or publicly believe that Taib should stay on to enrich himself and family will be our no1 enemy and shall be voted out. Do not tell us that you only support Taib to lead as a CM only and nothing more. We are not stupid and since you choose to be morons by living or hoping to live on his patronage, you shall be voted out.

      Sarawak for a clean, just and accountable government. No more second chance after 47 years of unconditional support.


  2. looes74 says:

    DAP would stand for 20 seats. Wong Ho Leng is the Sarawak DAP President. He has the final word. I do hope that DAP would leave Dominique alone while stacking claim on Batu Kawah. Frankly, Harris of MCLM would be in a shock when he actually has a hand on SNAP potential candidates. I am not happy with Azmin’s claiming 40 state seats….Rafizi claiming 30 seats would be more appropriate. With Mahfuz Omar saying of having 3 would be fine….In fact, PAS is actually ok with even 1…..Leaves to SNAP of having 18 seats…..A fair deal after all

  3. Bakrie says:

    I am happy that that the PR/SNAP and MCLM alliance and coalition are creating a lot of confusions for the BN. BN is likely to meet its waterloo in the coming state election and they will not know what hit them and where the fight will be most intensed. Good job PR, SNAP and MCLM and not forgeting MoCS.

  4. Mata Kuching says:

    Taib Mahmud the thief minister will soon be history with MCLM/PR/SNAP and other NGOs like MoCS breathing down his neck. If Larry Sng is a wise young man, he should join SNAP. SUPP is a forgone conclusion and Taib knows that. The Dayaks and a few Malays/Melanaus areas are getting grey and they are definitely restless. If Taib cannot deliver what they had expected in the last 47 years and only knew how to grab their lands and divide and rule over them the coming election is his waterloo. The parties that were working in cohort with him to plunder and rob the state and the rakyat will be the casualties as well. Its too late now unless SUPP, SPDP and PRS break away from PBB and fight for survival on their own. If they do and what are their chances of survival, after the poll we shall know and a new dawn for Sarawak.

  5. Lee Hui says:

    Taib believes he is the Pharaoh and party like SUPP has been pleading to the people especially the Chinese community to continue to recognise and support Taib as a Pharaoh by voting for SUPP’s useless candidates who are modified to be deaf, blind and dumb. All BN Lawmakers must abide by BN Government policy to be Deaf, Blind and Dumb to be on the wish list of Taib Mahmud…Quote Irene Kana

    Brilliant observation and it could not be more true. We agree with you Irene.

    Vote for pakatan is a vote for change, change to the worse. Taib will go, he won’t stay for another 30 years. BUT once you hand over the state to PR, that 5 years of suffering is nothing compare to that 30 years of BN’s ruling. Say NO to PAKATAN. I believe in the progress and development of Sarawak, something PAKATAN fear BN can really achieve by 2030.

    • NewHope says:

      Pakatan will win 63 seats this coming Sarawak state election. Sabah will follow Sarawak come the 13th GE and BN will be The End.

      2030 ? Only people like you can be con !

      New Dawn for Sarawak. New Government and New Hope !

    • Frederick Joseph says:

      An orang utang like you can be excused but I dont mind to enlighten you. Panang and Selangor together, attracted the highest FDI for 2010, more than all the BN ruled states,two years after defeating BN. Sarawak was the richest state in terms of natural resources in 1963, like a very rich landlord. Today Sarawak is the second poorest after Sabah BUT the thief minister of Sarawak who is your puppet master in PBB is one of the richest man in the world ! Hence I like to welcome you to the Semonggok Orang Utang santuary which has progressed by leaps and bound and shall be the best santuary in the world by 2030.

    wakakakaka BN are you now wondering why we are making your head PENING? Pakatan Sarawak will go all out to see the end of Taib Regime.

    This well written article is meant for BN Cybertroopers to defend their authoritarian and corrupted masters.

    People’s call for regime change — Part 1 — NH Chan (
    February 17, 2011

    FEB 17 — The uprising in Egypt, the uprising in Tunisia, the uprising in Yemen and even in Jordan there are rumblings in the kingdom. The message is clear. The people do not want their dictators.

    And what is the difference between kings, dictators and oligarchs? They are all totalitarian regimes — this means a system of government consisting of only one leader or party and having complete power and control over the people.

    But the people do not want that kind of government; they want democracy — this word means a form of government in which the people have a say in who should hold power; they do not want despotism. And this wish of the people could only mean that they want a government of the people, by the people and for the people which is what a true democracy actually is.

    In other words, they do not want repressive rule in any shape or form. They want human rights. They do not want draconian and oppressive laws.

    In short, they do not want to live under a perennial state of emergency because all emergency laws are only excuses for tyranny. They also want freedom of speech and a free press.

    In other words they want a government which is accountable to the people. They want change from authoritarian — this word, which is an adjective, means demanding strict obedience of authority — rule.

    And what is the antithesis of totalitarianism? It is democracy, which is what the people really want. In a democracy, the people can choose their own representatives in government. If the people’s choice did not perform up to their expectations they could be replaced by the people.

    In a true democracy, there will be no such thing as intervention from an illegitimate source to hijack the people’s choice of representatives in their government.

    The foreboding of a dictatorship

    What has happened in Egypt and in the Middle East was a people’s call for regime change. The dictators there who have clung to power should have seen the writing on the wall; it was time for them to leave. The people, especially the young people because they are educated and well informed, did not want them. They have overstayed their tenure.

    They became corrupted by power; there is a well-known adage which says power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Any dictatorship is tyrannical — the word means “using power in a cruel and oppressive way” — as was seen in Egypt under Hosni Mubarak who had clung to power for 30 years. In recent events there, we have seen water cannons and tear gas being used on peaceful protestors by the regime. Mubarak’s Gestapo-like police have tortured and killed dissenters: I saw a peaceful protestor exclaim on TV “They have shot me! What am I? The enemy?”

    In this country we have been governed by the Barisan Nasional (BN) for some 53 years. This country is supposed to be a democracy. But it is not. Guided democracy is nothing more than an excuse for tyranny. We still have draconian laws. People are still being incarcerated under the ISA which is detention without trial. There is police brutality which seems to be endemic in the force. The people’s fundamental freedoms have been muzzled; they have even used the Sedition Act against the country’s citizens.

    Respect cannot be forced. If you are good respect comes naturally. The people do not want their legitimately elected state government to be hijacked by the autocrats. What happened in Perak and in Selangor are the clearest examples of governmental wrongdoings. So that if these autocrats are not careful, the tyrannical happenings in this country could easily turn into a catalyst for change.

    But we do not want to follow the trend as played out in the Middle East. It is necessary, therefore, that we earnestly take steps to make the change from the BN regime at the next general election by replacing it with a democratic one.

    We do not want autocrats — the word means “rulers or persons with absolute power who expect obedience” — to tell us with supercilious arrogance what is good for us, for that is another excuse for tyranny.

    We want our rulers to be answerable to us, the people. Despots are not needed to run this country because they will always be corrupted by power — that is the reason why the prime minister and members of his Cabinet should not be allowed to stay in office for more than two terms. The same should apply to the mentris besar and the excos.

    Animal Farm

    If you have read “Animal Farm“ — a novel by George Orwell, published in 1945 — you will know what I mean. The book is a satire in fable form. The pigs (whose leader is Napoleon) become corrupted by power and a new tyranny replaces the old. The ultimate slogan runs “All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others”.

    The BN has been with us for 53 years and on each succession of the BN government a new tyranny replaces the old. I say this because nothing has changed since the BN came to power. We have the same repressive laws. But there is now a new tyranny. The new evil is the hijacking of a legitimately elected state government in Perak and this, in my estimation, is the last straw for the people of Perak to tolerate. For the rest of the country, remember this, if it can happen in Perak it could happen again elsewhere in this country.

    This was mainly the reason that made me change my mind from being apolitical to decide to vote for the underdogs because what the BN had done to Perak was wickedly unfair and unjustifiable.

    After reading the book “Perak: A State of Crisis“ I realised that these people do not even know right from wrong. They even gloat in their wrongdoings. We do not want the oligarchy — this word means a country governed by a small group of people — to be more equal than us.

    I don’t have to tell you who they are — even in the BN some “animals” are more equal than others. Look at their opulence.

    It is a good thing if every member of the Cabinet and every member of the Exco are investigated as to their financial status and assets before they can assume office. And when they leave office they are to be investigated again. They are to be accountable if they are found to be richer than what they could have earned while in office when they leave.

    That is why democracy requires the representatives of the people to be accountable to the people. Look at Lim Kit Siang, he has been in politics for as long as I can remember and his son is currently the chief minister of Penang. Another was the late Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu. The Perakians and the Penangites know that they are not rich.

    One should be in politics to serve the people, not to get rich. —

    Police in Simunjan, a quiet district town two hours’ drive from Kuching, showed exemplary caution when facing a crowd of 300 Iban villagers gathered in support of Numpang Suntai this Wednesday.

    Only 20 of the supporters were allowed into the courtroom in Simunjan, where Numpang was facing a charge of ‘criminal intimidation’ against Loyal Billion, a logging company contracted to extract timber for a wealthy conglomerate, Quality Concrete.

    The remainder of the crowd remained outside, braving the heavy rain.

    The Dayaks are finally fighting for their rights to their own NCR or ancestral lands. Soon their frustrations and anger will engulf the whole of Sarawak. There shall be no looking back or negotiations through the blind, deaf and dumb BN lawmakers. Businessmen who have been denied equal opportunities for the last 30 years are also venting their frustrations and anger at UMNO controlled BN government led by the paramount thief minister Taib Mahmud.

    The march to real liberation and a political tsunami is building up strongly across Sarawak. The end is definitely near for corrupted and abusive regime of Taib.
