    The current Sarawak state election is a God-sent opportunity for the Christians in Malaysia to unite and mobilize themselves to exercise their voting right to send a strong message to the Barisan Nasional regime that enough is enough.

    Christians need to unite in unceasing prayers and go all out to campaign and vote to preserve and protect their fundamental human, civil and constitutional rights to freedom of worship using the full vocabulary of their national language without restraints and limitation.

    Infact the Arab Christians had been praying in large numbers weekly for the corrupted regime of Mubarak to be overthrown a few years before it finally happened.

    Let’s pray for JUSTICE and VOTE for JUSTICE.

    “Better to do the right thing and lose in an election than to get elected and do the wrong thing.”

    Tony Blair on “Politics with a conscience”

    The above message is specially meant for all the new candidates in BN. As for the incumbents they have been buried by monetary gains and lost their conscience to know what are right and wrong.

    No significant impacts to campaign in urban Chinese majority areas as most of them have already make up their minds who to vote. T
    They will vote for equality and fair polices rather than few instant goodies like those in rural areas.
    Will they vote for a govt knowingly that its polices have long discriminated them and their children specially in business and educations.
    In the recent by election in Sibu,Lau Hui Yew was being challenged by a group of chinese voters during his campaign.They asked Lau ” We are very poor too,why is it we are not given 10-15% discount like our bumi friends in buying house ?.
    ” Why do our children need higher qualifications to study same courses with those bumi students in local universities ? ” Lau told them ” That is govt polices that nobody can question “.
    Angrily they asked Lau again, is that what 1 Malaysia mean ? ” Sorry, you can leave now and i can assure you that we only vote for equal and fair polices.

    SNAP deal with UMNO exposed in Sarawak Report. Over to you cyber troopers in BN Sarawak.

    Sarawak Report has decided instead to publish the information, so that the public can be aware of this plan to dupe voters. During lengthy discussions our informant explained that the BN strategy is based, as ever, on attempting to purchase a solution to its political problems by buying over SNAP and cheating the electorate into thinking it is voting for the opposition!

    While still posing as an anti-Taib/anti-BN party, SNAP’s initial job has been to disrupt the opposition by demanding all the winnable seats. In the wake of this disruption it is then planned to emerge as a separate opposition force on the eve of the election to confuse voters.

    The plotters hope that the division of the opposition will help the BN candidates win through, but they are also confident that with the injection of massive financial support from West Malaysia they can make SNAP the strongest opposition force so that it will win all the rural seats where Barisan support has collapsed. Sarawak Report was told that the plotters plan to exploit what they see as SNAP’s trump card, which is its claim to be a local Sarawak party, unlike other parties which also have branches in West Malaysia. “We are confident SNAP will win” our source explained, “because they can go to the longhouses – target the longhouses”. However, devastatingly he went on to say that after the election SNAP would switch sides:

    “SNAP and PKR have a problem. SNAP want all the rural seats, then SNAP will go to BN – it’s a game la!”

    Questioned over how a party which is supposed to be proudly Sarawakian could show such duplicity, our insider explained that it is no longer the same party that it had been years ago. Taib had broken it long ago by dividing it and paying bribes. “It is not the same party, you know, it is a different party”. Later he told us “They are the oldest party, but Taib played politics to divide and rule the party.. he paid money to buy people off”. However, demonstrating the viewpoint of a West Malaysian BN supporter, he concluded that the plan was a good way to get rid of Taib while keeping control of Sarawak. Adapting a quote that has often been used to describe the present Chief Minister he announced:

    “SNAP is now the safe deposit for the UMNO/BN government. The Federal Government wants to use SNAP as an entry into Sarawak”

    Part of a wider picture
    [najib kuching]

    Publicly together this weekend. But, behind Taib’s back the PM and DPM were desperately plotting over how to rid themselves of the discredited Chief Minister, who refuses to stpe down but is threatening to bring disaster in the elections.

    This information, which was offered as part of a wider interview conducted with Sarawak Report last weekend, corroborates a number of broader signals indicating that SNAP is no longer a genuine partner in the PR coalition.

    The party, which was only just revived as a political force last year after a suspension in 2002 by the Register of Societies, has acted as an increasingly disruptive force in the coalition, demanding far greater status than its limited membership and party reach should allow. It has gone from requesting that 3 seats be allocated to its candidates last year, to 10 then 28 and now 40 seats, which would squeeze the main rural opposition party, Baru Bian’s PKR, into a tiny minority of opposition seats.

    With only a handful of members and potential candidates at its disposal at the start of this year SNAP has meanwhile been desperately offering jobs and positions to anyone who would care to join and help build up the party as a credible political force. The incentive they have been offering is a mystery source of money, which they have been claiming is at their disposal.

    Later denied – Granda Aing was portrayed as joining SNAP at the weekend!

    We have learnt that nearly all PKR’s own candidates, including leader Baru Bian, have been approached by SNAP to join their party over the past months, with offers of immediate payment of as much as RM500,000, although none have so far accepted.

    An announcement last weekend that Granda Aing, who was recently disappointed over a failed leadership bid for PKR, had joined SNAP has also subsequently been denied. Baru Bian was even asked to withdraw to give way to a BN candidate in Ba Kelalan.

    To make up for the shortage of experienced candidates SNAP has recently moved on to canvassing non-political figures in order to publish an initial list of 16 proposed candidates yesterday – even a member of our team on Sarawak Report was approached (he turned the offer down).

    Admission by Stanley Jugol that SNAP is with BN
    [paul kadang liman Stanley jugol 3]

    Key players in SNAP – Stanley Jugol (right) shakes hands with Daniel Tajem.

    Sarawak Report has also been passed separate evidence that the Secretary General of SNAP privately acknowledged the deal between SNAP and BN to a local newspaper journalist last week.

    A source has told us that the newsman had asked Stanley why SNAP seemed hell-bent on attacking PKR but not the BN which was presumably its real “enemy”. Stanley replied that it was because SNAP ‘needed BN to deliver development to the rural native communities and that to attack the BN would only undermine delivery of development to these areas!’

    This BN-style talk surprised the journalist, who then asked if SNAP was planning to cross to BN if they won any seats in the election. To which Stanley Jugol then replied ”yes”. According to our source, the senior pressman concluded that the Federal Government was funding SNAP to destroy PKR.

    Meanwhile, Edwin Dundang, the President of SNAP has raised eyebrows with a recent display of new wealth. The former Shell worker, now retired, has just acquired a luxury Toyota Helix and he has been promising prospective candidates that they will have a budget of RM300,000 to fight each constituency.

    Speculation has raged for months as to what the source of this money could be. Till now it was assumed that a mystery businessman was involved, but it now seems certain that the source of the cash is in fact PR’s political enimies from BN and that this is an attempt to buy off electoral defeat by building up SNAP as a fake opposition party.!

    A top secret plot that is against Taib as well

    Sarawak Report’s BN source made clear in the interview that this federal plan is also directed against Taib Mahmud, who the government regard as having ‘too much baggage’ to continue as Chief Minister. They are angered that BN will lose seats because the deeply unpopular CM is refusing to step aside before the election and they plan not only to retrieve these seats by using SNAP, but they are also planning for current members of the BN coalition to also jump ship after the election.

    “If Taib tries to play around then these guys in the Federal Government know what to do”

    our Federal BN source explained. The plan would be to form a new BN coalition around another leader who would once again represent West Malaysian interests, just as Taib has done in the past. Among the individuals named as preparing to “jump ship” is William Mawan, who is hoping to be made the Dayak leader, However, in fact the intention is to continue business as usual with Abang Johari planned as the next Chief Minister under BN.

    Our source emphasised again that these manoeverings by Federal BN are regarded as a top secret plan to snatch victory in the election:

    “I am supposed to keep quiet, because the bottom line is we [Federal UMNO/BN] want to take Sarawak” he confided.

    Leo Moggie is behind the plot
    [leo moggie]

    Leo Moggie – key player in KL

    Our informant also detailed the management of the plot, explaining that the man behind it is the powerful and influential Leo Moggie, an Iban based in KL.

    “He is very influential and he is the one reaching out to SNAP. Najib is very close to him. They think they can bring SNAP to UMNO/BN”

    Moggie’s key role is his contact with revered Iban leaders such as Daniel Tajem. Tajem used to be part of PKR and continues to endorse Baru Bian as a moral and good leader for Sarawak’s Dayaks. However, our source says that Moggie is now “working it out” with Tajem and exploiting his concerns that PKR “cannot manage their own leaders in Malaysia and that the party is going down”. The informant summed up his information saying:

    “SNAP will leave PR and go to BN after the election.. they will do a deal with the other parties to make sure BN stays in power”

  7. BN Tsunami says:

    UMNO promised that:

    1. They will remove Taib after the election
    2. A new Iban will replace Jabu as DCM
    3. UMNO will rule Sarawak through their breeded hand, a changed form SNAP
    4. SNAP if winning, will be given important places in the new government, and this is the most pleasing

    If this is true and exposed, SNAP is heading to total damage while thinking to destroy others.

    Sadly, this is our Dayak politic

  8. Anti-Kleptocrats says:

    Dayaks especially Iban will never learn. No wonder they’re called Lakia and true to their own folklore stories – APAI SALOI enda badu-badu !!!
