Be it by phone call or smses or whatsapp a threat by anyone should not be taken lightly. The person directed at will be emotionally aggravated and he will be subjected to political stress. This is the life where many in the political field are facing and we cannot blame them for having “security” surrounding them. Political foes can get very EMOTIONAL and they will unleashed all their political muscle to achieve their aims.
We do feel ever so sorry for many political boys but that’s the PATH they choose. Will Churchill Edward be able to withstand the pressure and stress after what he has spoken to the press.?
We wouldn’t dare to say yes or no…

Decision to readmit sacked assemblymen endorsed by SPDP supreme council
Those questioning the re-admission of the four assemblymen into SPDP may have an ulterior motive, according to party’s deputy information chief Churchill Edward. He says these dissenting voices were in the party’s supreme council that unanimously agreed to the re-admission not once but twice — on Feb 23 and March 6. KUCHING: The decision to re-admit the four sacked assemblymen into SPDP was a unanimous decision by the party’s supreme council.
Its deputy information chief Churchill Edward Drem in a statement said it was totally wrong to say their admission was done solely by party president Tan Sri William Mawan.
“The decision to re-admit the G4 was made by the supreme council on Feb 2, which was subsequently relayed to Chief Minister (Tan Sri Adenan Satem) on March 6 at his office in Petra Jaya where Deputy Chief Minister (Tan Sri Alfred Jabu) and Housing Minister (Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg) were also present.
“During that meeting, the supreme council members had reaffirmed their earlier decision to re-admit the G4 before the Chief Minister,” he pointed out.
Churchill, who is also Muara Tuang SPDP secretary, issued the statement to rebut the call by “anonymous group” calling for Mawan to explain why and how he re-admitted the sacked assemblymen into the party.
According to Churchill, the supreme council members kept silent when asked, first by Mawan and secondly by Adenan, whether there was any objection.
Mawan and Adenan took the silence as consent to the re-admission of the G4 assemblymen, comprising Datuk Peter Nansian Ngusie (Tasik Biru), Datuk Sylvester Entrie (Marudi), Rosey Yunus (Bekenu) and Paulus Palu Ngumbang (Batu Danau).
Following the unanimous decision, Adenan then witnessed the official re-admission of the four as SPDP ordinary members at another meeting at his office on March 19, he added.
Churchill said almost all the supreme council members were present at the Chief Minister’s Office to re-affirm their decision.
“All of them also clapped their hands as sign of approval at the end of the session with the Chief Minister.”
Given the solid approval by the party’s supreme council members, Churchill said the anonymous group should demand the supreme council and not Mawan for the explanation.
“In fact, the anonymous group also owes party members an explanation on why they demanded the president to explain what had been decided by the supreme council,” he suggested.
Churchill also said that Mawan had duly explained the re-admission issue to party members through subsequent forums including his chairman’s address during the supreme council meeting on Feb 23.
“I find (the demand by the anonymous group) illogical, ridiculous and an attempt to embarrass the party, the president and Chief Minister.
“I also think they are probably having an ulterior agenda as I could not see any other reason for their persistence in demanding the president to explain what had already been explained.”
Churchill also questioned the group’s motive in calling for an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) just for the president to explain the re-admission when they (members of the anonymous group) were probably part of the supreme council that made the decision.
With the Feb 23 supreme council and quorum being established as proper, it was beyond reasonable doubt that the re-admission was fully endorsed by the supreme council, Churchill said.
“That was why we all went to meet the Chief Minister to re-affirm and re-confirm that there was indeed a discussion on the reconciliation issue.
“We were not there to bluff the Chief Minister. If they (dissenting group) said the president had acted alone, then why were all of them at the Chief Minister’s office on March 6 and also on March 19?” he said, adding that Mawan ought not respond to the anonymous group because its identity was suspect.
On a separate issue involving attempts to put a wedge between Mawan and his deputy Datuk Tiong King Sing, Churchill said he believed it would be futile because at the end of the day, both would remain as friends and comrades in SPDP and Barisan Nasional’s fold.
