“Loyalty to GPS Coalition,No Personal Agendas”

A PBB member said that it was crystal clear on Tan Sri Mawan’s stand when he was wrapping up his interview on TVS 2030 “Government of the day and there is no other choice”

Furthermore this he said,”People always think Tan Sri is easy meat (easy to be bullied). But his type of meat is hard. Iban said daging liat

It does seem that even though PBB has managed to garner over 6300 members in a little over 2 years from 989 members there is still the uneasiness of a component party claiming the seat.

They have even mentioned in published articles which appeared in the main stream media and on line portals and said,”IT’S THEIR TRADITIONAL SEAT”

Should we say too that SNAP (now defunct) had contested 19 seats and that includes those listed below:- Padungan,Pelagus,Machan,Engkilili,Dudong,Batang Ai,Tebakang,Ngemah,Lingga,Tatau,Telang Usan,Tasik Biru,Krian,Dudong,Pakan,Meluan,Baleh,Marudi and Limbang.

Does the component party want to take all their TRADITIONAL SEATS back from the others now besides PBB and that also includes PRS and SUPP seats says the PBB member.

Is there some”Sinister Political Move”been planned here?

PDP was formed after a fallout from SNAP and if the argument makes sense there must go all for it.

SHOULDN”T THEY DO SO?

For the past few months PDP has shaken the ground in making “intrusions’ into supposedly friendly component party areas which has irked some party leaders.

The party now with 3 State Seats in Meluan,Tasik Biru and Marudi are trying to gain more seats to stand instead of winning back lost seats in Krian (Ali Biju-Bersatu) Bakelalan { Baru Bian-PSB) both won by opposition parties.

There was an agreement after the State Elections with its delineation increased its seat from 71 to 82 and these involved a number of direct candidates. It was agreed in the presence of the Top Hierarchy Leaders that whoever wins the seat will have the choice to choose a party to whom they represent.

Mawan together with 6 other elected assemblyman had the choice of choosing the party they want to represent. {Picture attached}

Let’s do a recap so that everyone will have a fair understanding of the whole political strategy.

The Breakdown of Political Parties after PRN11

GABUNGAN PARTI SARAWAK

PBB- 47
PRS- 11
SUPP- 7
PDP – 3

PAKATAN HARAPAN
DAP -7
PKR -3

Independent Party

PSB -4

THIS WAS HOW SOME PARTIES HAVE INCREASED THEIR PARTY STRENGTH AND THEIR ASSEMBLYMAN AFTER PRN11.THE SO CALLED DIRECT CANDIDATE BY THE LATE CM ADENAN WAS TO ENSURE ALL PARTIES ARE REPRESENTED, STRENGTHENED AND MAINTAIN A CUTTING EDGE TO WIN THE SEATS IN PRN11.
EVERYONE WAS GIVEN A FAIR SHARE OF SEATS AND CANDIDATES TO WIN THE SEATS WHICH THEY STOOD IN. THERE WAS A CONSENSUS OF AGREEMENT THAT WHOEVER WINS HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE THE PARTY OF THEIR CHOICE. THEREAFTER THE RESULT WAS A FORGONE CONCLUSION.
THE DIRECT CANDIDATES CHOSE THE PARTIES OF THEIR CHOICE .

To have a better understanding of a bigger and better picture we made a phone call to see whether Tan Sri Mawan was available to give us some insights. As usual we managed to contact him on the phone as he is on the way to his constituency in Pakan.

The First words were simple and easy to understand ,”Loyalty to GPS,No Personal Agendas

He touched on the following 5 points

  • Firstly, Elections is anytime now and it’s a very crucial time.
  • Secondly, We must Win.
  • Thirdly,What it takes to Win.
  • Fourthly,a True Blue GPS Member Will Focus on winning the seat
  • Fifthly,GPS Interests first and No other Personal Agendas

He further elaborated by saying,”Traditional Seat is all about winning the Seat and not just Taking it back to make up the numbers and in the process losing it. There are many factors involved, the party machinery,the membership backup,consolidating of all forces to ensure GPS Wins.”

He continued by saying on the Traditional seat claim,”Right is One thing,Winning is Another

That was how Tan Sri answered and We just kept Quiet.

( The phone signal was out of reach and below in the final paragraph he concluded when he called us..)

The party member also mentioned that the component party is making use of the Pengerusi PBB Cawangan of Pakan in Cr.Jimbun Ak.Radin to help them in ousting an Incumbent PBB Yb.

Isn’t he burning down his own house by helping the other component parties?

This is complete opposite and contrary to the spirit of GPS and we should avoid it now. There should also not be REMOTE CONTROL from outsiders which will certainly drive GPS to their gallows.

We must all also take stock of what our PBB leaders have mentioned,” PBB Vice President and Tourism and Sports Minister in Abang Joharis cabinet said this in a recent interview with an Online Portal,”There should not be such things as “traditional seats” as all rights remains with the people of Sarawak.”

THINGS HAVE CHANGED. IN MOST DEMOCRACIES COALITION GOVERNMENT ARE DETERMINED AFTER ELECTIONS. IF YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING,YOU DON’T DESERVE TO BE A CANDIDATE THERE AND YOUR PARTY DON’T DESERVE TO BE THERE.

This echoes very well too for GPS as it will be CM Abang johari’s Maiden outing as the commander in chief for GPS and he needs all the help from the component parties instead of squabbling for “traditional seats”

This is GPS first ever political journey and to stay as the government of the day all need to consolidate themselves.

GPS knows extreme measures are required in extreme times and they will trust the judgement.

The PBB member concluded by saying that,”Mawan is battled hardened, exemplary track record and loyalty to the coalition is enough to signal to PBB that he is very much their man for N47 Pakan.

As Mawan rightly said, when he called us back as soon as the signal was clear ,”We need to check our conscience and we must stay loyal to GPS Coalition,No Second thoughts,No Second Agenda and No Deals outside
