GE13 “I’m Still Standing..!”

In 1983 Elton John had the hit single “I’m still standing”{listen to it click on you-tube] and in 1990 Billy Abit Joo won his first Parliamentary Elections as a BN direct candidate against Justine Jinggut and he continued his winning streak for 5 terms as the table below shows.

 
Year   Barisan Nasional Votes Pct   Opposition Votes Pct
1990   Justine Jinggut 4,200 54%   Billy Abit Joo (IND) 5,393 42%
1995   Billy Abit Joo 6,731 67%   Lucius Jimbun (IND) 3,084 31%
1999   Billy Abit Joo 6,884 70%   Kumbong Langit (IND) 2,751 28%
2004   Billy Abit Joo 6,949 67%   Bendindang Manjah (SNAP) 3,283 32%
2008   Billy Abit Joo 6,590 59%   George Lagong (IND) 4,426 25%

James Masing PRS President has already made it loud and clear that Ulu Rejang will see a new face. But MP Billy Abit is adamant to go for another term and his presence at mosts functions in his constituency is an indication that he is not going to be “BRUSHED OFF” “SWEPT AWAY” but it’s a message –

 I”M STILL STANDING…THE PM HAS THE FINAL SAY

In an earlier posting 22/8/11 he said “he was aware of a move by a small group in Kapit to come up with their own candidate to replace him.I am not stealing the seat from anybody but instead some peole are trying to steal it away from me” It seems the MP from Hulu Rejang is saying,”Come take it away from me,I am more than capable still to stand and defend the seat.’

Today the Star played an even more controversial article which seems to play into a race based candidate which is damaging in a sense pitting the Orang Ulus against the Ibans of Rajang Basin. This we extract from the newspaper article.

Penghulu Sagit Bit,in particular,said Ugakforcing himself into being accepted by the orang ulu people would break a long-haul peaceful understanding between the orang ulu and the Iban of Batang Rajang made in the 1800s.”we do not want peace ,which was built on respect,to be brokenjust because of the political aspiration of certain individuals”Sagit said. (see below)

This rallying cry sounds similar to another parliamentary seat in MAS GADING or even in the Mukah seat where the majority Christians are fighting for one of their own to be represented. PM Najib needs to thread this line very carefully as one step in the wrong direction will mean BN will lose the seat to an independant or the Pakatan coalition. He needs winnable and calibre candidates and as the saying goes,”If it aint broken why fix it

The lobbying will be intense and GE13 is already seen as the mother of all battles and PRS like all component BN parties will field the ones who will be accepted by the voters.

ARE THEY ANY OTHER DARK CLOUDS? WHO IS STANDING WHERE..??

  1. Grievances and unhappiness is normal when the candidates feels that they are going to be dropped.Billy is no different from SPDP5 Tiki Lafe. Soon James will also charge him for “Insubordination” Jangan lawan towkay” hahahaha

  2. Yang Penting sekali ya lah Pemimpin yang boleh buat kerja dan orang suka dia. Lain saya tak mahu cakap.

  3. George anak Lagong akan lawan sesiapa saja di kawasan ini. Ada dengar khabar angin yang besar sudah dia akan di bantu oleh Datuk Sng.

  4. Today Star report, Opang say,”If Hulu Rajang MP must be replaced, let him pick his Successor”. I strongly support openg statements. Masing your statement on jangan lawan rajang cannot be used Hulu Rajang. If you don’t believe go and used it in Hulu Rajang during this GE 13, and see who going to votes for you ?. It can only be apply in Sri Aman with Mong as a candidate. Masing ,what are going to do when all your yb allied to you dissociate with you???? your days are number to be voted out from PRS president???

  5. This really shows in politics” The goodies of the gravy train is just too difficult too miss.”

    Too many Kangtows and projects that enable them to amass wealth.

    As predicted,Billy Abit wouldn’t just simply gives way to anyone though with blessing og the pary head.

    His statement of Najib would have the final say reflects his strong wish to defend his seat though promised to give way before.

    Can you believe what politicians say,

    Their decisions are just like changeable weather and forgot what they said minutes later .

    All these happen in This Boleh Land .

  6. PRS opens one favorable battle field to opposition,whoever contest in Hulu Rajang as candidate will definitely benefit from the on going struggle between Abit and Ugak,

    Geroge Lagong who is expected to contest there might eventually ends up as victor.Thanks to BN PRS

  7. Now the battle begin for Hulu Rajang seat. On once side you have Billy and opang and the side you have ugat and james. It seen to me PRS has faction now. Why billy don’t kowtow to james? Did he know the golden rule,” jangan lawan Towkey”? . It Party PRS having internal struggle now? Did james become so arrogant and don’t listen to his yb now?? Your’s to comment..

  8. Hulu Rajang seat macam api, “James read the statement below” .

    Billy Abit Joo threatens James Masing and PRS

    Dalam suratkhabar theStar edisi Sarawak hari ini ahli parlimen Hulu Rejang Yang Berhormat Datuk Billy Abit Joo telah menyatakan, “I want to make sure Hulu Rejang will not suffer the fate of Pelagus (state seat)”. Pada pilihanraya negri tahun lepas penyandanf ahli Dewan Undangan Negri Pelagus Larry Sng tidak dipilih oleh PRS sebagai calon. Larry Sng telah meletakkan bapa saudaranya George Lagong untuk melawan calon BN. Dengan penyokong-penyokong dan duit Larry Sng George Lagong telah mengalahkan calon BN.

    Sekarang YB Datuk Billy Abit Joo ‘blackmail’ Presiden PRS YB Tan Sri Dr James Jemut Masing bahawa jika Masing tidak mencalonnya maka Datuk Billy Abit Joo akan merosakkan dan sabotaj calon BN.

    YB Datuk Billy Abit Joo juga mempersoalkan kuasa YB Tan Sri James Masing apabila menyatakan dalam suratkhabar thestar hari ini, “The PM has the final say,”. Kenyataan akhbar Datuk Billy Abit Joo ini menyindir YB Tan Sri James Masing bahawa dia tiada kuasa untuk tidak mencalonkan Datuk Billy bait Joo.

    Kenyataan-kenyataan YB Datuk Billy Abit Joo adalah didalam artikel, “Dark clouds envelop Hulu Rejang” dalam suratkhabar theStar hari ini. Adakah Barisan Nasional akan hilang kerusi ini kepada Pakatan Pembangkang kerana perbalahan dalam PRS?

    Adakah DAP dan PKR akan berjaya untuk mengeksploitasi kelemahan PRS ini?

    Re

    • PKR & DAP don’t have any candidate who has the potential to beat either of than. The only person who got chance to beat than is Yb Gerge Lagong.

  9. Akin to race of candidates for presidency election for Republican in US.

    Just weeks after after James uttered his Arrogant Slogan ” Jangan Lawan Towkey “, now it comes where his powers and influences as party president.

    Will Pelagus fate befallen on PRS again ,only time will tell.

  10. It,s durian runtuh in Peninsula from federal govt,PM dan DPM had at least splashed 800 million during their recent visits from the north to the south.

    What did the 2 poor states get ?.remember the national coffer key is with them.

  11. Najib tells Kapit Ibans, 42 years ago . my father Tun Razak came and promised you the road linked to other towns and today i am here to fulfill the promise.

    After another 20 years,perhaps this time is Najib son to tell them that i am here to fulufill my father promise.see how these Ibans are cheated ?

    • Our iban friends in kapit division, if you want to see road being built from kapit to kanowit, you need to voted out all your BN yb. susahlah?

  12. Malaysia university staff union” strongly rejects “outsiders for Top Posts in varsity even Top Professors from Havard or Oxford university.

    What are they to be afraid and hide after DPM claimed that our eduction quality and system are better than UK, US and Germany.

    One representative from UiTM even issues an hash warning not to destroy and downgrade our” world class standard “,” Jaguh kampung Syndrome Degrees” makes it a laughing stock to the world.
