Come April 1st the much talked about GST will come into force. (The 6% of Goods & Services Tax ) GST (Goods & Services Tax), which is also known as VAT or the value added tax in many countries is a multi-stage consumption tax on goods and services.
GST is levied on the supply of goods and services at each stages of the supply chain from the supplier up to the retail stage of the distribution. Even though GST is imposed at each level of the supply chain, the tax element does not become part of the cost of the product because GST paid on
The opposition front have been making a lot of loud noises inside and outside of Parliament to the extend of the people following blindly and believing. The government is implementing the GST after only a thorough breakdown and careful study of the effects and also to ensure the people and economy will not be badly affected.
In Sarawak the GST will initially be felt ‘minor tremors”but in our CM’s series 3 the GST comes into effect with the Acronym “Gago Sangat Tok”- Actually the article will be focus on the lobbying of seats available for the 11th Sarawak State Elections.
The Hudud issue have got to the Pakatan coalition front of DAP leaving the front as it feels that they have been backstabbed at the back. Their statement reads,: “DAP Sarawak regrets that PAS has deviated from their PR common policy framework by pursuing the implementation of HUDUD law in Malaysia. With PAS remaining as a component party in PR Sarawak, DAP Sarawak has resolved and made the painful decision to quit from PR Sarawak” SO DAP will not have much to worry about GAGO SANGAT TOK (GST). They will need not to bow down to the demands with PKR and they will be able to venture in their “IMPIAN SARAWAK” where the rural seats will be their priority.
They will be calling their own shots and even if they do come together with PKR and other local parties they will have the upper hand. After all they have 12 ADUNS with PKR only 3 and the other an Independent. The game played by the DAP hierarchy in Sarawak looks simple enough to draw first blood to ensure that their voters will continue to believe in them as they are genuinely serious in their political fight. It will be so different for DAP if the BN Chinese based parties are not still at each other necks.
The Chief Minister Adenan have listened and handed down grants to the Chinese Community on Education and have done his utmost in eradicating corrupted officers who have their hands in illegal logging and even made his stand on stopping the catcalls of PENDATANG.The Chief Ministers Men are trying their best but it seems the political parties involved are not heeding the calls. On the ground it does seem that it will still be very much an uphill tasks for the BN Chinese parties to regain lost ground.
LET US BE ABSOLUTELY TRUTHFUL ABOUT THE WHOLE SCENARIO. ITS THE ENEMY WITHIN WHO ARE KILLING THEMSELVES AND NOT ANY OUTSIDER.
SUPP and UPP have to understand that no other BN coalition parties are lobbying for the urban seats. Both of them at the time of writing cannot even be seen cordially at political functions.
DONT THE VOTERS KNOW …. ESPECIALLY THE URBAN ONES?
However in the rural bastion of safe seats for BN the scenario is very much dissimilar. The claims are more like what PBB Belaga Youth claims to contest in the New seats of Murum. This have also been counter claim by PRS who says that the seat is in their Parliamentary area of Ulu Rejang and their State seat of Belaga. It is no secret that the lobbying have been intensified to the extend that the ADUN of Katibas have even stepped in to ask all parties not to create the rift which will be of no benefit to the BN coalition. He is afterall a former Secretary general to PBB and he knows only too well the ultimate reaction from the top lleadership. ( This is not to be revealed here)
Lobbying of course in the rural areas comes in many forms and three or four days festivities at each constituency thrown by the aspiring candidates are not unusual. The Chief Ministers men have seen it too often in past campaigns and the signature campaigns are widely used as the Internet technology of Whatsapp (print screen) or Emails will have very little effect in this rural areas. The Chief Minister has already a list of potential candidates drawn up by his inner circles and he will have the final say no matter who GAGO SANGAT TOK (GST) The political parties will all have their own lists no doubt but the final say will be left to the BN Sarawak Chairman as he will be leading the team to the elections.
Our intelligence sources say that many veteran BN ADUNS are hopeful that their previous track record will get them considered or retained for the 71 seats. The 11 new seats will be divided amongst the BN coalition and here will be seen new, fresh faced and younger candidates.
The AIR OF RUMOURTISM has that they will be changes in a few constituency amongst them ARE YOU READY? These are the lists which are widely spoken as the election candidacy hots up:- Tamin ,Semop Jemoreng, Jepak, Muara Tuang Layar Bukit Begunan,Lingga Tupong Batu Danau.It does seem that GST ADUNS have got on the ground and worked hard and hopefully will not be dropped from the final lists.
Of course the Chief Ministers men have said its the AIR OF RUMOURTISM but CM Adenan will say YOU UU..( these are the reasons and here are the reports from JASA,SB and grassroots )
Chief minister men knows that the TEAM matters more than a few who thinks that they deserve the chances again when they are not seen to be politically motivated no more and they have also outlived their political lifeline. They might still be useful in other ways to the State administration and some will even be given government positions if BN are returned to power. Their experiences are much needed but to serve their constituencies is another matter.
GST will be implemented on April 1st but GAGO SANGAT TOK lobbying will be carried on till the final lists will be drawn. it does pay though to be close too the Chief Ministers Men and Series 4 to 13th will come sooner than expected. Until then just stay focus on your work which you have been assigned.”Don’t Over Over huh in your political ambitions as the…..
CM Sarawak will say this to all “YOU…UU”
