N54 “Winner has not taken all the Spoils”

It seems that N54 Pelagus will remain in the news for sometime to come. A battle won today might not bring the victor much peace as long as the enemy thinks that the “war” is not over yet. The bad blood spilled between the Sngs and Masings has even spilled so far as words coming out from Masings camp as”very good reason to believe that money politics was involved there in the state election”.

The full article can be read below from an English Daily which we have extracted. The point when George Lagong who returned called was very simple,” I am a God fearing man and I am a Poor man eventhough they perceive George is very Rich and can afford to buy votes.As my name initials the acronym is simple either its  George Lagong as G.L. is “GOOD LUCK or GODS LOVE ”

PRS can file the petition and even if they force a by election they will not win the seat again. Its very simple and try they can. Its not even about CM Taib in this seat but the fight is very clear its between you know who.I dont need to spell it out,do I.?

George Lagong won against BN,PKR in a three cornered fight and he has proven to hold his own. He was defeated in the Ulu Rajang Parliamentary seat in 2008 where the “capsized boat carrying the ballot boxes” was headline news. The Petition made by PRS is again giving him the ‘publicity which he did not himself seek.

Sources told us that PRS was even asked to consider Larry Sng at the very last minute as this will be a BN sure seat.{BN independant candidate} However it was turned down eventhough “persuasive powers” were used and there was also a written agreement to the PM from PRS.

Could this Petition be used to ask George to join PRS..?

N54 Pelagus was a very hot issue before the elections and this petition will not stop the ‘fire” that is still burning between the parties concerned. PRS will do well not to publicly issue statements which might come back to haunt them especially ‘money politics” 

The extracted article below:-

SIBU: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) has filed an election petition to nulify the result of the contest for the Pelagus seat in the April 16 state election.PRS Pelagus division chief Philimon Nuing accompanied by party Information chief Wilson Nyabong and lawyer Sim Hoi Chuan filed the petition at the Sibu High Court today.

According to Nyabong, who is the Pelagus seat director of operations, the party had “very good reason to believe that money politics was involved there in the state election”.

The petition was filed before senior assistant registrar Suhailla Selag.

In the election, PRS/BN candidate Stanley Nyitar @ Unja ak Malang was involved in a three-cornered fight with Edward Sumbang of Parti Keadilan Rakyat and George Lagong who stood as an independent.

George won the election with a 2,837-vote majority.

He garnered 5,740 votes against 2,903 obtained by Stanley and the 1,171 obtained by Edward.

The voter turnout was 9,986. This is the first petition filed after the election. – Bernama

    Court decisions is dont waste our time and rakyat money cos it is already a norm in sawak all candidates practise money politics.

    There are more BN affordable candidates than opposition or independent candidates who are normally weak in finance .

    How about alleged RM 400 balance for each election worker paid by Wong Soon Koh in Bawang Assan in Sibu.

    How many constituency only spend 200K as stated during election ?.some might have spent millions as you know most,Audie61.

    Perhaps James Masing has his own coffer drier too.

    James Masing first invite George two days after elections to join PRS. Now after 1 month no response he bring him to court citing money politics. If same scenario given DCM Sarawak after one month he will ask Taib to step down too.hahahaha
    Beware Taib as the momentum is getting stronger and Masing will be used against you.

    Uncle George was elected by the people of Pelagus. James Masing should have stood against him. Maybe he thinks he is safer in Baleh. He also scared of George Lagong his one time personal operations and campaign manager.PRS sudah kalah next time saja lah.Enough of politiking like Awang Tengah said.

  4. dayang says:

    George will not join PRS/He has 5 years to think about his political future. Why worry the people of Pelagus is with him.PRS really said to PM they can deliver 5 seats.Well elections over they won 8 losts 1. How ???

  5. phyllis says:

    James Masing losts the batttle of Pelagus against Sng. Now one to take George to court through Reddi and Co. Is he trying to corner CM by using the law firm? There are other law firms to us and why just use this law firm. Trying to tests CM’s loyalty to PRS?
