Sarawak Trilogy~Road to 22nd Floor-(Final)”Whose My Boy..??

If I spell out his name now for the 22nd floor here your first reaction would be,”No,lah cannot be,Certainly not him.After convincing -{ you my friend you that is } – it will be followed with next,”Would he really.?Why CM Taib recommend him ho !”

A source revealed to us in so many words,”Has anyone ever thought of Michael Leo Toyad now that he has embraced Islam and is now known as Muhammad Leo Michael Toyad Abdullah. He is after all a Melanau and is the current MP for Mukah. He has served as deputy minister of foreign affairs in 2004 and as Minister of Tourism in 2006. Surely,he cannot be far off from CMs mind can he?

Dark horses are appearing and depending on who it is from and even politicians who have fallen by the wayside comes very highly recommended. I am sure if we asks anyone that this is the person….,” -Do you think so? There will be more yes and only a few murmurs of don’t know.”

Effendi Norwawi fits the bill and he has also served as Federal Minister in Agriculture (1999 – 2004 and also Minister in Prime Minister’s office in charge of economic planning. Well will he fit in again especially so when he doesn’t seem to have strong grassroots?

The mandate has already been achieved and CM Taib has already been sworned in despite saying that he will step down after the elections.Did he say he will? The successor as always has been a mystery while some have chosen to quietly postulate their own theories. Each will have his own whos and whys certain names and parties are in contention.Mosts of the time its thought-provoking.

We know very well that PBB by virtue of being the largest political party in Sarawak will have a major say in the successor to the Chair as it has been returned with a majority of 35 seats. The component parties in PRS,SUPP and SPDP will also be consulted as the CM is also the Chairman of the State Barisan National coalition.

The political wheel is spinning faster than ever now and CM Taib has indeed been busy lately  putting into place the rightful heir to the coveted chair. Its not a question of who and who should be says Assistant Minister Stephan Rundi and PBB SG but who will be able and capable to fill the vaccum left by him after helming for 30 years as Chief Minister of Sarawak. He has in mind who but knowing CM he will do so at the right and appropriate timing.

In part 2 we mentioned,””You can’t try to force him as he knows how to turn the tables on you, as he had done in the past. Some political hopefuls tried to force him out but in the end, they ended up in political oblivion.”

Cordial Federal and State relations in itself is a big tasks which musts be buttered well. It is not only harmonising influences of the leadership PM to CM vice vesra.One must have it in him to defuse delicate policy disagreements or conflict especially when there are differences which needs to be ironed out.

CM Taib has often pointed out that the ability and willingness of both leaders to learn from both ends to continually perceive each others strengths and weaknesses,and work towards a common front and in the interests of the nation. Taib knows that the present situation is critical and volotile.He knows that he or his man must not have any thoughts of confrontational approach and all matters must be solved through coordinated negotiations through consultative methods.

The GE13 will have a huge bearing on the outcome to see whether if CM Taib continues to lead Sarawak.  A SUPP appointed EXCO member said,”Look at the mathematics and tell me if I am wrong. 308 spelt it as 140-82 now Pakatan seemingly less with the frog-jumpers.

Sarawak with 29 out of 31 seats is and still will be BN stronghold. Do you believe that? Do you believe BN will be in power after GE13? The chinese have left in droves to support DAP as they see SUPP as a lame duck and with no more spine left.

We (SUPP) losts 13 out of 19 state seats but the CM has the mandate to lead Sarawak for another 5 years. He moved swiftly been sworn in the night at 10.30pm knowing that he has already achieved the mandate and the trusts by the people of Sarawak.

He does not want to be manipulated by the arms twisting of some Federal leaders. He was proven right and pushed back the movement against his on going rule as CM a few steps back.

Some of the Federal leaders knows that BN Sarawak will tilt if too much harressment and pressure is stepped up on CM to relinquish his chair.It does remain though the PM in office now needs to work closely with the State administration and the CM in office is of utmosts importance. Sarawak is not under UMNO rule and thus PBB knows that they have all the bargaining chips.


The Prime Minister knows that he still needs to cajole Taib as Sarawak BN has 29 seats and mosts of the members of parliament  if not all are with CM Taib in any decision making which is for the better good of the state. A “few” has been  tempted to betray with promises of positions and power but they were very soon found out.  

The leaders who have made their voices heard intentionally or by default are listed as Alfred Jabu,Abang Johari,Awang Tengah,Adenan Satem,Fadillah Yusof,Douglas Uggah,Effendy Norwawi,James Masing and William Mawan. Some of them are down in the lists but they are not necessarily out of the picture. CM is keeping their names in the drawer next to his bed.

CM has even now put the name of Muhammad Leo Toyad in the drawer. We cannot even rule out Stephan Rundi for that matter as he is young and also capable in his own right. In jest.he said Azahari Ali in the 22nd floor and that he is telling us that he has read part 1 and does not want to be ruled out.

Emeritus Professor meanwhile posted another mosts unlikely question,”Have we considered all options for CM Taib.? We can write here but knowing that you are as illusive as the Da Vinci Code mystery we need to look closely from all angles and in particular the edited picture in question.

 Am I correct said the Professor? The political situation is so fluid at the moment and CM Taib is in no hurry to step down. PM Najib himself is not about to gamble on losing an ally who will ensure he stays on and continues as PM.

PMs  next assignment will surely be the Parliamentary elections for CM Taib?  CM Taib delivers he benefits and he will continue to serve until he decides to let go . PM Najib has to abide with the warlords who are giving him a lot of heat.

UMNO’s message is clear to Sarawak.You deliver we stay out and if BN Sarawak garners less than 25 seats out of 31 it does and will affect the final tallying of who makes it to Putrajaya BN or Pakatan.

It has already started with whispers and words exchanged to Putrajaya that if Taib is still the CM when the nation goes for elections a number of Sarawak seats will suffer the consequences. The PM’s office are watching and closely guarding the sentiments on the ground and they will not chance it as every available seat won is important in the final tally.

Abang Johari’s cronies are working overtime and painting a very bleak picture of Sarawak if  Taib still remains as they enter the parliamentary elections. The political shift and movement of forces are anything but cordial amongst the many political rivals to the chair. They may appear as friends in front with their pleasantries but once the backs are turned all ‘hell’ is let out to wander.

CM Taib with over 48 years in the political arena is not just about to throw in the towel in the ring and cave in. He knows all is real the infighting and he is determined to see it through till he decides in totality to give it to the rightful heir apparent. Taib is the master,he plans well and will not want his plan to fail. He will ensure that whoever wants the coveted chair will need to adhere to the following:-







CM is a master chameleon and with his machiavelli ways he will ensure that the timing is so precise and he will not leave any thing to chance. Even his lists of new cabinet minister assuming he names them in SEPTEMBER he musts go through them at least seven(7) times before he endorses it fully.

In this day and age any false move by Taib will have detrimental consequences not only to him but also to Sarawak.The social media’s ability to pass information,fuelling,shaping and exchanging reactions have already drawn the perception of life without him at the helm. He knows it and his plans are surely falling into place.

A knot is being tied on the legs of the 3’A’s + 1 which we mentioned in part 1 and for CM to come down he needs all of them  in question to work harmoniously and tackle all issues together before he even dares to sleep with both eyes closed.

At the end the Federal leaders will try their bests to name their boy but from what has been circling around in the State Capital of Kuching this is CM’s strongest message yet. At the 23rd commemoration of Kuching city CM said ,’hopefully we meet again on the 25th anniversary of (Kuching)

    Looks like when Taib does give way its free for all. That is the final analysis. The new man will not be able to hold everyone together. Regime change its like that. Look at when Mahathir stepped down 4th floor boys rule.Now Rosmah rule.

    Meritocracy talk: Airasia swap share with Mas to save ailing National Carrier which was managed by all Malays except once under Idris Jala,a native from Sarawak.

    Airasia too was bought over by Tony from DRB Hicom which was managed by Ketuanan.

    Evaluate yourself the practice of Meritocracy in Bolehland.
