A highly placed source in Barisan Nasional Sarawak says that the ruling BN Sarawak Coalition will be discussing the mechanism on the 71 seats on offer soon in the New Year 2014. The BN Coalition will take into consideration a number of factors and are seriously looking at all options even to the extend of fielding younger and capable candidates to ensure “FRESHNESS AND WHO WILL BE WITHOUT EXCESS BAGGAGE.”
The Pakatan are slowly making inroads into the rural enclave and have a stranglehold of the urban areas. They nearly made a clean sweep of all SUPP Urban seats except Bawang Assan and Senadin. DAP have managed to “hookwink” mosts of the urban voters to vote for them as alternative as SUPP is very much embroiled in fighting amongst themselves. This has not gone down very well with the voters in all the 19 seats SUPP was given to field their candidates. The semi-rural areas of SUPP withstood the “tsunami” as the rural areas have steadfastly stood behind the BN Coalition.
The NO.1 Priority will be the losts seats to the opposition and BN are seriously restrategising their machinery and thoughts towards the possiblity of “SEAT SWAPPING” . Of course they will be many “unhappy members at the grassroot levels” but the main objective of any coalition is to take back what they have losts. The POSSIBILITIES which is on offer is too good to be missed. It will be a good headache for the BN coalition and the Pakatan coalition will also be in for a surprise or two.
Surely, not all can be discussed in the blogsite and a lot of other strategies will come into play. The highly placed source said,”IT”S UP TO THE INCUMBENTS TO SAFEGUARD THEIR SEATS”. BN and Pakatan will have their hands full and they will take into accounts all political possibilities before they execute it fully.
