Two years ago we wrote this,”This is a favourite phrase”mushrooming of parties especially elections are near“in reference to “Peace Party” on June 14 2010. After the approval of SWP(Sarawak Workers Party) there are strong indications that People’s Alliance for Justice and Peace Party (Peace Party)has also been approved by the ROS Malaysia.
These two parties are approved eventhough they are about 4 others who submitted and the only reason is that”The Political Master finds them a most valuable asset for the coming GE13 and they find the two persons fronting the parties daring and are mosts comfortable in territories where others dont even dare to venture.”
However, there might be another twists and the Home Ministry might approve the rests in Parti Ekonomi Rakyat Sarawak Bersatu (PERSB); Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBM); Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak Baru (PBDS Baru); and Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras).
This could be in line with putting pressure to CM who had indicated to PM and DPM that he will call it a day after the State elections. According to a veteran journalists the Federal Leaders have not forgotten the words spoken by CM Taib in a function in Serian. Peace Party is headed by Julian Petrus Jout (former PBB) and the party is strongly aligned to BN.
SO IT IS NOT ONLY SWP v PRS..??
According to State Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) vice-chairman See Chee How who is also Batu Lintang assemblyman through a telephone conversation he said the smaller parties will not have much effect on the outcome of the elections but it could also mean the floodgates would open for other BN Peninsular based parties especially so UMNO.
See Chee How continued and gave us approval to write this down,”UMNO because of its racists politics has no place in Sarawak” He also does not want to see UMNO in Sarawak for whatever reasons they can come out with.
The modus operandi of the mushrooming of parties in Sarawak can be similar to a trend which saw to the maiden entrance of UMNO to Sabah in the 1990s. The second echelon leaders in UMNO have already made their moves unintentionally but a number of local politicians have already seen the threat as real.
UMNO, we leave it to another day says former PRS strongman Tedewin Ngumbang. You justs look at the approval of SWP its a clear case of BULLY towards PRS.He said,” Isn’t PRS BN and SWP is approved BN-friendly and it will undermine the BN spirit in the state.
UMNO being the dominant party in Malaysian politics after 50 years very much wants their jigsaw puzzle completed with Sarawak missing says a political analysts.Its 31 divisions for anyone who aspires to helm UMNO Malaysia.
The Sarawak Carrot which is Dangling so Deliciously musts be taken seriously.
The online Bernama story (below) have also made a number of politicians making their intentions known and they called audie61.
- One BN Penghulu even said “SWP or PEACE win is a BN win “and BN Federal leaders are looking at a bigger picture to stop Pakatan.
- Another youth leader said,”CM’s hands are tied and what else could he say.”
- A BN YB said,”the top leaders knows better “
- Independant YB George Lagong said,”Thats Good news“
This is the extracted version,”The newly registered Sarawak Workers Party (SWP) is free to field their candidates in the coming general election, Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmudsaid.
The state Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman, who seemed nonchalant, said the registration of yet another political party was part of the political scene in Sarawak, where the people had embraced democracy.
“One more party coming in, why not? They are free to be there,” he told reporters after officiating at the opening of the 50th Multi District Lions Convention.
Asked to comment on a statement by SWP protem president Dr Ong Lark Sai that the party would be BN-friendly but might consider taking on the BN, especially in the six seats held by Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), Abdul Taib said: “It’s up to the rakyat.” Traditionally, Barisan allocates PRS six parliamentary seats, namely Hulu Rajang, Sri Aman, Lubok Antu, Kanowit, Julau and Selangau.
