YOUR CHOICE OF PARLIAMENTARIANS IN 222 CONSTITUENCIES
Over the long Gawai weekend it was not only a time of celebration,exchanging pleasantries but also many political gossips especially from the grassroot and voters from the constituencies. One particular area which is basically a semi rural seat where the local flavour/winnable,humble and acceptable candidate is very much the order of day is none other than Mas Gading 192 Parliamentary seat.
Its also an understanding between the Jagoi/Singai group that in 1996 they drew out an agreement that one of the clauses stated that when the MP is from the Jagoi community then the assemblyman has to be from the Singai group.
One voter even said,” you just look at the list which is being drawn up by the holding party SPDP here Rayan Narong, Anthony Nogeh, William Jinep, Henry Jinep and Ik Pahon Joyik. After much
politiking it is now SPDP’s choice which is Salcra deputy general manager Anthony Nogeh as their pick for Mas Gading in the coming 13th general election.
OK they say to keep the peace as per agreement,Henry Jinep will have to contain with a state seat in the next elections replacing Tasik Biru incumbent Peter Nansian while Nogeh will be the replacement for Tiki Laffe.
Its not about the state elections now this is about the Parliamentary seat where DAP/PKR are in direct tussle,STAR and other independants are also eyeing this seat.
But to the many who were randomly asked and spoken to many still feel “Tiki is very much still the man to beat. He is HARMLESS as he doesn’t care too much about politiking but still does his job efficently especially though in the lasts 6 months.(hehehe)
He does however look arrogant but in actual fact he is approachable and has a listening ear to his constituents. Many feels that the Federal leaders are still very much in favour of Tiki as they have extended his tenure as NSTC(national service training camp) Chairman.
Brother they said,”Isn’t it better to know the devil who you are familiar with than to know a Saint who will turn out to be worst than you can imagine..?.”
SPDP will have their hands full this time round unless Tiki tells us otherwise.
|1999||Tiki Lafe (SPDP)||10,684||60%||Patau Rubis (STAR)||6,664||25%|
|2004||Tiki Lafe (SPDP)||10,579||56%||Patau Rubis (SNAP)||7,867||42%|
|2008||Tiki Lafe (SPDP)||8,551||58%||Patau Rubis (SNAP)||4,250||29%|
We came across this statement from an internet portal and this bests describe what we meant by picking 1 is difficult whatmore 222 candidates for Malaysia Parliament.
Malaysians should choose their leaders without fear or favour and support those who can deliver the goods. Candidates with tainted background should be removed. Only those willing to sacrifice and serve the people should command the respect and recognition of Malaysians to safeguard and strengthen the future of the nation.
