PKR “Feeling Betrayed”

One can never predict what happens in politics.There are reasons on why certain things are done like this while others like that. We are often “fooled” into thinking and complacent about our positions and usually the obvious is not revealed until its thrown back at us.

Surely. one has to be dragged through MUD and sometimes the party or coalition does the unthinkable but still feels that their actions are necessary for reason only known to the select few. When this report of Dominique Ng hit the blogsphere: “I feel betrayed.”

“This announcement has taken me totally by surprise. DAP had announced that it had given up Padungan and Senadin, so how can this happen? It is incredible. I’m totally shocked.”
He even said,”Anwar was surprised..!!”

Burung Kenyalang 2011 said to audie61 ” Was Anwar surprised…? Did Anwar not see this AS perfect timing..?? Isn’t this a way of telling Ng your time is up..? Hasn’t Ng played too much politics for his own good?

Well maybe this move also took BN by surprise.It could also be done to see how far and true Dominique Ng will stick to party lines and discipline.

BN supporter Lim LC  from Padungan said,” This is indeed good news for Barisan National. Shows that the BN coalition has never wavered in its stand and eventhough SUPP losts the seat to PKR its still SUPP’s to regain back. How can we trusts the opposition when one of their own is even stabbed at the back. We will fight and get back the seat for SUPP.” 

The full report from the internet portal is copied here for you to make your own assessment.

In a surprise move, DAP and PKR will be swapping two seats they won in the 2006 Sarawak election.

At a press conference in Kuching tonight, the Sarawak PKR leadership said it will swap the Padungan seat it now holds for the Batu Lintang seat currently held by DAP.

NONEThis could mean incumbents Dominique Ng (Padungan) and Voon Li Shan (Batu Lintang) may be left without seats to contest.

Ng (left) and Voon are considered mavericks in their respective parties.

The press conference was attended by Sarawak DAP chairperson Wong Ho Leng, PKR state chief Baru Bian and PAS state commissioner Adam Ahid.

The last minute swap comes as a major surprise because Padungan is PKR’s first and only seat held in East Malaysia.

Moreover, Ng, a former DAP leader who fell out with the party in the 1990s, is well rooted in Padungan.

The move is potentially risky for DAP because Ng has a history of standing as an independent in three-cornered fights.

Voon, on the other hand, is believed to be a thorn in the current DAP leadership’s flesh.

Some see the move as attempts by both DAP and PKR to impede the political careers of Ng and Voon.

‘I feel betrayed’

When contacted by Malaysiakini, Ng said: “I feel betrayed.”

“This announcement has taken me totally by surprise. DAP had announced that it had given up Padungan and Senadin, so how can this happen? It is incredible. I’m totally shocked.”
He said that even Anwar was surprised about it when he called the de facto PKR leader after learning about the announcement.
“He (Anwar) is having a ceramah, so I will meet him afterwards.
“Baru did not even have the courtesy to inform me before making the announcement.”
Ng said he has made advance preparations for the election and that “even my posters have been printed”.
However he refused to comment on his next move, besides saying, “this is not the end”.
Voon: The people are important, not me
Voon, when contacted said, “I don’t know anything. I am watching football.”
Asked wheher he would will you contest in the April 16 state election even if his party does not niominate him for a seat, he said: “You should ask the leader what they will do with me.”
As to whether he would consider running as an independent, Voon said: “I don’t know anything at the moment… let them decide. Let it become that way.
“I am not important, the people are more important. The people and the country are more important than the party. Let the people decide, for they will know what to do.”
The three state Pakatan leaders also confirmed that PKR would be contesting at least 24 seats while DAP and PAS would be contesting 15 and five seats respectively.
PKR’s negotiations with Sarawak National Party (Snap) are still ongoing.
The full lists of Pakatan’s candidates are yet to be confirmed

    Malaysia memang boleh: MACC officer can relax cos of duress by watching PORN after quizzing Teoh in his office.
    With 1.2 million civil servants ,biggest in the world, i wonder how many are just receiving Gaji Buta without any productivity and merely seat warmers in highly renovated 5 star offices.
    It’s common too to see drivers of head of departments busy sending their children, relatives and wife here and there during office hours.
    What to do ,this is Malaysia lah,semua boleh.

    Ben Ali of Tunisia : All Lies.. Mubarak of Egypt : All Lies..Gadaffi of Libya : All Lies… Taib Mahmud of Sarawak : All lies and bloody lies. I gave my federal ministership gratuity money to my daughter to start business 30 years ago. Although she was in her early 20s then but she was very talented and was able to make RM100 million profit for me every year for the last 30 years. Ask George Chan, Wong Soon Koh and Alfred Jabu..they all know the truth and the capability of my daughter.

    Sarawak BN says that without the close cooperation of Putrajaya a Sarawak ruled by Pakatan Rakyat will collapse. Is that so? Can Nagypt’s administration aford not to cooperate with PR governed states in order for the ETP to succeed?

    Putrajaya, Penang join forces : KUALA LUMPUR, April 1 — Putrajaya and Penang will work together to develop a Greater Penang Transformation Programme to accelerate the northern state’s growth in an “inclusive, sustainable and holistic” manner, the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) has said.

    Pemandu’s statement today quoted Datuk Seri Najib Razak as saying Penang needed to “synergise” its RM17.9 billion investment under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) with the Economic Transformation Plan (ETP) to become a top urban centre in the Bay of Bengal and the Golden Triangle.

    10MP infrastructure projects for the state include the Penang Bridge, Penang International Airport, Penang Port expansion as well as the construction of a second Penang bridge, an electrified double-track and the Juru-Sungai Dua bypass.

    Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said his government fully backed the initiative as Penang was well-placed to “take a big leap” up the value-added chain due to its strategic location and leading position in manufacturing, logistics and services sectors.

    “As an act of commitment, we have now shelved our Penang Blueprint, which is an industrial development masterplan that we have completed for the next five years, from 2011-2015,” he said in the same statement, adding that Penang was prepared to cooperate fully with Putrajaya to ensure the programme’s success.

    I am definitely convinced and thousands of other Dayaks and fellow Sarawakians should be convinced beyond any reasonable doubts by now that SNAP no longer subscribes to the struggle of the Pakatan Rakyat to seek justice for NCR landowners and to fight the highly corrupted regime of Taib Mahmud.

    On behalf of all Sarawakians who are ready to vote for Change, I urge Baru Bian and the leaders of Pakatan Rakyat to officially and publicly announce that SNAP is no longer a partner in Pakatan Rakyat Sarawak and that SNAP is with UMNO controlled BN in this election.

    Inform all rural voters with immediate effect that SNAP is fighting this election for UMNO controlled BN. Sarawakians voting for change must reject any parties outside of Pakatan Rakyat. We must not be fooled by SNAP and must reject them outright.
