It seems the prediction made by Lim Guan Eng CM Penang on penetrating the bastion of Sarawak BN of 12 seats might justs come true now. Previously he could have justs based it on the troubles within SPDP and SUPP. But now it does seem the infection is about to be spread to PRS.
Did it take SPDP or SUPP insider to make sure that PRS does not become complacent or overwhelming confident? Did they know that PRS has some weak achilles heel? Surely not, as James Masing is confident and bold enough to predict that the opposition will lose all the 6 seats they contests against BN/PRS which has appeared consistently in the main stream media.
Now the game plan has changed. Former PRS youth exco and now DAP Branch chairman Leon Jimat Donald has indeed got back at his former boss in Youth Chief Mong Dagang. The case of the disabled man Frusis Lebi being given a letter signed by Assistant Minister of Agriculture Mong Dagang as directive to his officer to stop all subsidies and welfare allowance as Frusis had supported the opposition.
This has indeed propelled Leons rating and his willingness to fight all out for Frusis has indeed won him many new friends in Facebook,social media blogs and even amongst BN leaders. BN leaders and grassroots are indeed puzzled as to why the Minister should have used a letterhead of the department to inform the assistant director. Could he justs have not called him to the office?
Strange but damage has been done.
But we justs hope that BN members would not all call for the assistant minister to step down. In other countries the minister would have hung his head in shame and leave office without much fanfare. The people will defend no doubt that its the prerogative of the Chief Minister as far as minster appointments are concerned.
Doesn’t this give the CM a chance to promote someone else and use this as a punishment for misusing the office. The CM will be commended by the people and no less Najib who uses the slogan,”People first,Performce now”
There are many in the BN who have come out to condone the action by Mong Dagang and below are few of the quotes:-
- Kota Belud MP Abdul Rahman Dahlan, who initially suspected the directive signed by Mong was fake, said on microblogging site Twitter today that the act was “old politics” and “wrong .Aid to the poor and OKUs must be beyond political affiliations
- Gerakan Youth chief Liew Pok Boon expressed “shock” over Mong’s directive.
- Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Koh Tsu Koon said the government would not allow similar incidents to happen.”I believe the federal government will not do things like this.
Now it has gotten worse with James Masing coming to the rescue of his Youth Chief and assistant minister.Masings was quoted by the media,”Masing told voters to “follow a rule of life – jangan lawan towkay [don’t fight the bosses]” following Dagang’s directive to cancel the aid to the disabled man.
Isn’t this music to the ears of the opposition?
Surely, CM Penang LGE who was in Sibu musts have have a big smile when these news broke out. His prediction did not include PRS safe seats. Now in his little black book he musts be penning another ‘winnable seat” in Sri Aman which is being held by BN/PRS MP Masir Kudat.
Could James Masings statement come back and haunt him as he now has to battle the negative perception of the voters in his 6 seats. This news will filter through to all the 6 seats as the opposition are now even more determined to battle against PRS.
Even PKR YB See Chee How was stunned whatmore DAP CM LGE,”“One would have expected Masing, as a senior minister, to control the damage inflicted on the Barisan Nasional government in the wake of Dagang’s action.”
There are a number of seats which are termed 50/50 and winnable by the opposition. Is there an underlining message from CM Taib that the Fedral needs him more than ever to deliver the seats as 12 or more might justs fall if he is not at the helm. CM Taib lead the coalition to winning the State Elections by winning 55 over 16 losed seats.
We do not want to be called soothsayers/clairvoyants in predicting losses for BN or else we might justs have our computers taken away with directive from you know who…hik hik hik. Our reporting is based on groundswell,JASA,Federal government agencies,SB and party members who are talking only about the 31 parliamentary seats.
Some of the BN grey/black seats belongs to:-
1.P192-Mas Gading Tiki Lafe SPDP(Party Infighting)
2.P196-Stampin Yong Khoon Seng SUPP( Party infighting-Chinese voters)
3.P199-Serian Richard Riot SUPP (Party Infighting)
4.P120 Batang Sadong-Nancy Shukri PBB(candidate infighting)
5.P201 Batang Lupar-Rohani Abdul Karim PBB (candidate infighting)
6.P202 Sri Aman-Masir Kujat PRS(voters anger)
7. P203 Lubok Antu -William Ngallau Badak PRS (voters anger)
8. P205-Saratok Jelaing Mersait SPDP (party infighting)
9. P208 Sarikei-Ding Kuong Hing SUPP (party infighting-chinese voters)
10.P211 -Lanang Tiong Thai King (Party infighting-Chinese voters )
11.P213 Mukah-Leo Toyad PBB(candidate infighting)
12.P216 Ulu Rejang Billy Abit PRS (candidate infighting-voters anger)
13.P219 Miri Peter Chin Fah Kui (Party infighting -chinese voters)
14. P220 Baram Jacob Sagan SPDP(Party infighting)
15.P221 Limbang Hasbi Habibolah PBB(Candidate infighting)
It counts as breakdown for the BN party as PBB 4 seats,SUPP 5 seats,PRS 3 seats and SPDP 3 seats. This is not very healthy and if Najib sees this figures he musts be realistic enough to know all is not well in Sarawak. The opposition DAP at present time has 2 seats in P195 Kuching Chong Chieng Jen and P212 Wong Ho Leng.
Najib will be overly worried as it looks very fragile for BN in general going to the GE13. The opposition calls UBAH,No more PEK MOH meaning down with CM Taib in urban areas have won them 12 seats for DAP 1 PKR in the last state elections,2 rural for PKR and 1 independant.Will Najib not be concerned of Taibs administration now with even his senior Minister James Masing shattering the BN glass house.
It is of a very deep concern and CM Taib musts be overly worried looking over his shoulders and wondering what is next. Action and Ruthless actions musts be taken in order to secure his own position. It seems PRS has now given him a new headache and the normal medications prescribed will not be enough if he does not go for some antibiotics.
A quick injection would and might see an end to Mongs political career but a big face saving exercise for Taibs adminstration.
Najib would use it as “WE BN do take actions when necessary to ensure our legislators follow the rule of democracy and LIM GUAN ENG will be silenced at the polls”
