Where do we start with these two political leaders?
This saying best describes both of them,”Good Friends are Hard to find, Harder to leave and IMPOSSIBLE to forget” Audie61 is not about to apple polish both of them but stating the facts which in a way is due to the significance of their year of birth of 1949 and 1961. One has to look at their strengths and weaknesses but we will not dwell too much on it.
They both have gone through many battles together since the SNAP days till today and have SCARS to show for their endeavors which have made them stronger and determine to ensure their own survival in today’s seemingly harsh political environment.
Both of them however have very strong Barisan Bond and the phrase below will see them through these most challenging of times and it will be sooner rather than later where you will both see them together for the better good of the rakyat of Sarawak.
“We must not allow such sense of emotional attachment to get the better of us until we take a compromising stand on SOME POLITICAL MATTERS and fail to see the bigger picture that concerns the health,unity and stability of the State Barisan Nasional. There is no problem that is too big or small to be taken to the Barisan discussion table and be resolved in the true spirit of the Barisan Nasional.”
Many attempts have been made to get these two political leaders to be together through various forums,press releases, discussions and very soon as they say,”SOONER RATHER THAN LATER” the parties will unite in the spirit of diplomacy of Barisan Nasional. Sun Tzu has made it clear that the “art of diplomacy is essential for the success in waging war,especially when alliances have to be forged”
The top Barisan Nasional leaders in PM Najib Razak and State BN Chairman CM Abang Jo are just waiting for them and they should not be further delay with the IMPENDING GENERAL ELECTION 14 around the corner. Negotiating parties are seen in deep discussion in the last few weeks and word has reached the ears of both the 2 top leaders.
Tiong in many of his press releases have been very gracious and kind to Mawan and they have met a number of times to talk on the issue likewise Mawan with Tiong. A very good indicator has come from the SG of SPDP Anthony Nogeh who said this,”“I have met up with Tan Sri off and on. It is very clear that he has shown the intention of returning to SPDP. And we welcome him with open arms,”
Mawan himself is very clear on this matter and he would be very happy and contented with the “Status Quo” on all the incumbents on the parties ticket for the upcoming GE14. He knows together with Tiong,Anyi,Nogeh and himself they will all be “Winnable” candidates for Barisan Nasional. This partnership of experience with youthful vigour ,determination and concensus on all members will benefit the party and BN in all totality.
Our earlier write up https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/04/17/p205-saratokone-more-termfor-mawan/ has caught the imagination not only by the top political leaders but also leaders in the constituency of Saratok.
They have come out in numbers and pledge that Mawan is very much in their radar as the peoples choice and voice of Saratok Parliamentary Constituency. The picture speaks for itself and PM Najib,CM Abang Jo and Party President Tiong will know that Mawan is still needed by them.
The stage is set for Tiong and Mawan who both will find “COMMON GROUND ” in their political journey and the Youthful Vigour of Tiong at 55 years old will look to his Friend of many years and experience Mawan to guide him through for many years to come.
It is without a doubt as many in the political field would want,”Inch Perfect Friendship and Partnership” where even the most turbulent of political crisis would see these two ‘GENTLEMAN’back together to give added strength to the Barisan Nasional diplomacy.
A former Assistant Minister in the State cabinet who relinquished his posts in the last state elections said to audie61,” Tiong and Mawan are the best of friends and he sees not much problems ahead for them and their faithful supporters to be back in One United Family which will augur well for the Barisan Spirit in view of GE14 around the corner.”
In all due respect the path is set for both Mawan and Tiong to be walking and working together to achieve the 100% for the party which in itself will not go unnoticed by the Barisan Nasional Leadership.
