“Tanda Permulaan Perang”

Dum!Dum!Dumm! …. The Drums of War beats out from a distance.

aaamaIn the rural enclave where the Parliamentary Seat of Saratok is situated the battle of “potential” candidates rages on. It has got to a stage where the party PDP seems to have lost the bolt and nut that holds the”steering wheel” because bad blood, bad vibes, bad mouthing is being spilled by supporters of the lobbyists in question.

Moreover,the lobbyists are not supportive of each other but are at “ODDS” with each other.     ( https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/09/10/the-truth-is-out-there/  )
Barisan Nasional have seriously taken note of the situation and with their incumbent and sitting MP at the helm the opposition is also playing a waiting game.Have they infiltrated the ‘fortress of Saratok’ with “spies” using the network of the lobbyists?

The momentum to defend and maintain Saratok in spite of PKR lurking behind under the command of William Mawan is tremendous. However,we shudder to think otherwise.

We were made to understand by some insiders that it does seem that”the lobbyists are all ‘fishing in troubled waters” Moreover, by their actions it will be totally suicidal to the ruling coalition as their supporters are throwing spanner in the works where the Incumbent BN/MP has worked the ground for the past five years.

The sitting MP has manoeuvred the enemy in “PKR/Pakatan” into a false front and even guided them into the desired position for a final onslaught. Mawan knows his enemy well enough as he is not just a ‘green horn MP” but one who has been tried and tested even in the most unsavory circumstances.

The whole process and derailment would be felt for BN if the PDP lobbyists ‘plays into the hands of the opposition” The lobbyists tagline ultimately is to dislodge and ‘get rid of the incumbent MP” at all costs but doing absolutely nothing to even speak foul of the opposition PKR.

BN cannot afford this luxury and they need to stick to one who knows the ‘terrain’well enough to win the war for them. The ruling government machinery is working very well with the seating and incumbent MP and his activities are very well engaged as they are very people-centric. The battle that the 3 lobbyists are engaging are skirmishes which the party PDP needs to address.

The BN incumbent MP when contacted on this subject had this to say,So far,so good. The war has just started,”the best” is yet to come. The size of the battle would be the General Elections. Nobody should underestimate PKR  who is in the Pakatan Coalition. They too have the resources and manpower to match. Individual interest should be left aside. Don’t over simplify things.”

In summary, the incumbent Barisan Nasional MP Mawan is well verse of the tasks ahead. Barisan Nasional knows that they will need the right person to retain the seat.

THE VICTORIOUS PERSON CREATES THE CONDITIONS FOR CERTAIN VICTORY AND THEN DOES BATTLE WITH THE ENEMY.

Wah!!!!! Sik ada lain isu ka?

As GE14 draws near “macam-macam” unhealthy statements from the opposition front appears and they seem to be doing only one thing

They have not been able to penetrate the heart and soul of the constituencies mentioned and they will pick up ‘only the ones” they think can score them political and ‘brownie” points.

Is there another agenda being played by someone who is eyeing the seat? Will not want to get into “the matter for now and we leave that to another day if the need arises.

For the information of the general public at large the facts and statistics below don”t lie.

d9817284-987b-40b8-8f7e-c318bdcbec49

The opposition put up at No.7 which is so irrelevant and in actual fact does not require us to rebuke it. (extracted below)

7.Aku yakin Cikgu Ani hanya berani berkata2 sedemikian dihadapan penduduk kampung semarang dan di kawasannya sahaja.cuba Cikgu Ani mengulangi kata2 ini di hadapan penduduk Shah Alam ataupun di kawasan elite.cuba tengok.”

For the information of the opposition front every constituency have different demographics and the mentality of the people also focus on other needs and wants.

We must be fair in our political statements and to be honest the Minister from Sarawak helming the Women,Community and Development Ministry is doing an exceptional work and her presence is felt not only in Malaysia but throughout the World.

Shouldn’t we be proud of our fellow Sarawakian instead of knocking her down unnecessarily?

The people of her constituency has no reason whatsoever not to give her a fresh mandate and the PM plus the CM Sarawak will consider her to continue.

Iboh bante sesuka hati jak!!!

 

 

“Ambil Hati”..Touching the pulse of the People

There is nothing stopping the man when he is on the move. One would be penny wise and pound foolish to even mention the name of the MP Santubong if he is sitting and lazying around in the comfort of his office and doesn’t care about his constituency.

ajunaid1118.jpgWhat makes the MP Santubong and MInister of NRE special in the eyes of the people of Santubong? Besides the height and the looks he has a special charisma of they say,”ambil hati” (touching the pulse of the people)  

He belongs to the “old school” where he ensures that there are no stones left unturned and he will always be very proactive and he passionately tries to find a solution be it for his constituency or the Ministry he serves. It goes without saying that he has taken all the training from being in the Police Force and impart it upon his public and official life.

He is refined and in his advancing years he is ” like a fine wine. which gets better with age and obviously the best is yet to come.’ He is giving back to the people who have put trust in him and even his colleagues in the cabinet and his ministry officials can vouch for that.

With all these credentials and his election winning margins logically do you think there is a need to change or replace him? (table of his records)

ajunaid111Looking at the bigger picture it would certainly be a big ‘vacuum‘ to fill up. He does have a few good years ahead of him. The people of Santubong constituency will certainly benefit from him.
Even now the 3 State Assemblymans of Tanjong Datu,Pantai Damai and Demak Laut are putting their trusts and support for him to carry on for another term as their Member of Parliament.

The Chief Minister of Sarawak and the Prime Minister of Malaysia knows how professionally the Minister carries out his duties be it in his own constituency or his ministerial duties.

The pulse of the people is very much in his blood and they do likewise supports him unashamedly. He is always on the ground listening and caring for the people.

Nya pandey ngambik hati orang.

Mawan”Only To Legitimize…”

Every political parties main aim when they enter the Elections Fray are to win. It is no exception even to the coalition partners of Barisan Nasional ,Pakatan Harapan,other  non aligned political parties and independent candidates for GE14 Malaysia. There are so many factors and criteria’s to meet and be considered before a final decision is reached.

mawan1181There are a lot of horse trading involved too and unless the names appear on the nomination forms to be submitted for now one can only speculate. There are “many instances” too when names are changed even at the last minute before entering the election halls and affixing the signatures in front of the nomination officer.

The thousands of individuals involved in, prior to the GE14 are all ‘HOPEFULS” to be State Assemblyman or Members of Parliament. Every constituency have their obstacles and also their challenges to win.

It is no different to Mawan? Has he done enough? 

To his ardent supporters and the constituents in the Parliamentary seat of Saratok he has done more than his fair share in working the ground.meeting the peoples expectations and being their voice for the Greater Good of Saratok constituency.

He is the only BN Direct Parliamentarian and State Assemblyman who is very much aligned to the Barisan Nasional Coalition. He doesn’t come as a package of being a ‘greenhorn‘ in politics but with a bagful of experience under his resume having served as Sarawak State Senior Minister plus being a former President of BN/SPDP which he helmed from 2002 to 2015 for 12years. He resigned as President of TERAS (BN friendly party) as he was chosen as a BN direct candidate prior to the state elections in 2016.

When audie61 wrote ‘Don’t Destroy the Fort 205 ” https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/08/25/dont-destroy-the-fort-p205/  Mawan  did not minced his words in informing the BN Hierarchy that the “THREAT” was real from the opposition. Does he need to score “Brownie Points?” Obviously, one would not let him  bow down to that level to just ‘shout from the mountain top” and even cry wolf.

The PM and CM Sarawak knows the level of commitment,dedication and loyalty that Mawan has portrayed to BN and the following extracted words below are very significant in the final decision for BN to legitimize the candidacy.

“The Incumbent MP knows that the party PDP has the 3 lobbyists making their presence felt in the area and he ‘wished them well,encourages them as it is their democratic right but he reminded them that there is line that they should not cross.They must not elbow out the incumbent in this BN stronghold and on top of that not even WEAKENING the opposition. The lobbyists must also not play in the hands of the opposition.”

Mawan is very entrenched,fully anchored and has the winnability momentum for BN in Saratok and his legitimate candidacy will go down well with both the BN ADUNS and the majority support to fend off the opposition making any inroads to this BN Parliamentarian stronghold.

This upcoming election eventhough in Saratok must not be taken lightly and the Chairman of BN knows it is “not business as usual” and  BN needs to consolidate all component parties,fine tune the election machinery and ensure winnability for BN.

The two state seats in Saratok “Kalaka,Kabong are under BN while Krian is under PKR”. Much have been written about the PKR assemblyman and he would have his wish fulfilled if Incumbent Mawan is not even in the election fray.

His formidable ‘ego” was dented as he was beaten by Mawan. Statistics doesn’t lie and Mawan secured 11,600 votes against Ali’s 9,519 votes to score a majority of 2,081 votes. Ali polled 5388 votes when he defeated the BN/SPDP Kilat Beriak candidate in the state election 2016 by 1,640 votes.

It will not be difficult for PKR to defeat anyone else besides Mawan and Ali would be the first to celebrate. Clearly, Ali is waiting for that chance and he will ensure that without Mawan in the picture he will secure for PKR a much awaited a ‘Rural Sarawak Parliamentary seat

Mawan knows its only a formality when the time comes and it could be done through any component party. It’s anyone’s guess which party will Mawan be heading to and we are sure that its anyone of the 13 BN component parties of which more favourable towards a Sarawak based party.”

PKR or Pakatan Harapan would love to have him in their stable but to those who knows Mawan well enough they know he is indeed a BN loyalist. Even the deputy BN Chairman and DPM Zahid in our previous article “New Yardstick” have indicated clearly in support of the PM and Barisan Nasional Chairman.

AyardstickHaving said that, Mawan will ultimately pen his signature according to the wishes of the BN hierarchy to ensure that Saratok will remain a BN stronghold for now and for the Foreseeable Future.

PDP President Tiong would want the FIRST BITE OF THE CHERRY and he himself would welcome Mawan back with open arms if BN so decides that “Winnability and Loyalty” has given Mawan the right to be renominated as BN candidate to win the parliamentary seat for BN.

The words of the late CM Sarawak in his foreword in “REFLECTIONS”said that Mawan has “earned a rightful place in the mainstream politics of Barisan Nasional. He also displays a LEADERSHIP that is moderate and accommodating and is able to rise above intrigues to relate to the picture of good politics.

Barisan Nasional knows its Loyal members and Legitimising Mawans candidacy should be formalised when all due intelligence and accounts have been thoroughly scrutinised and considered.

 

Santubong MP 193 Mendapat Sokongan

Sarawakians at large are very proud of our Minister of Natural Resources and Environment (NRE) and MP Santubong. He has indeed fulfilled all the criteria to be renominated for another term in office. Those who know him well knows that he doesn’t mince his works and is a ‘doer
MP193In all his appointments in any department in the Federal cabinet be it previously as deputy speaker,deputy home minister and now Natural resources Minister he has performed above expectations.
One not only see him in the social media space but also see him literally on the ground visiting and listening to his constituents in Santubong Parliamentary constituency. Even his officers and party colleagues have to play ‘catch up” with him when he is on the ground and he moves like a man on a mission reaching out to everyone.
He has the charisma, a very loyal party man, hardworking and a very able professional Minister in the Federal cabinet.
It is without a doubt that many constituents in  P193 Santubong would want him to serve another term and to the ruling coalition Barisan Nasional he is indeed a very “Winnable Candidate”and will deliver the seat to them.

Let the people of P193 continue to benefit from the exemplary MP Junaidi and a man who ‘walks his talk” to everyone and delivers without much fanfare.

MP205 “Moderation and Solidarity through Golf”

tsmawan 18Its not only politics that drives Tan Sri William Mawan. He does know how to hit,swing and drive the golf balls to the required distance and thereby also sending the correct signals to his worthy opponents. He explores every angle for the people to come together as one.

In his vocabulary and outlook there are no malice in his intonation but mostly he has outreached to the Larger Mass of Sarawakians by preaching moderation and doing away with extremism,bigotry,fanaticism and militant thinking in whatever forms.

To quote him which he said on 4th November 2014,”Moderation is the only way that can guarantee our continued solidarity and well-being as a multi racial society.Extremism begets extremism and the unscrupulous  who engage in bigotry are playing dangerously with fire and discarding racial hormony”

We will not compromise on our commitment to racial and religious harmony and ours is a united platform that draws strength and support from all ethnic groups in Sarawak.

His involvement in the Inter Community Golf tournament goes way back 9 years and he has continued to “WALK THE TALK“. Within the teams that are participating there are malays,ibans bidayuhs,melanaus,chinese,orang ulus all joining in. This goes to show that the National Integration is very much alive which has dampen and unscrewed the evil works of those who try to practise SEGREGATION and also to confuse everyone with their ill intentions.

amawan18aIn his Saratok constituency he is encouraging the youths to participate in various activities like the 9 aside football tournament. Mawan as former Minister of Social Development Sarawak has been very instrumental in bridging the harmony and solidarity through all programmes and sports activities.

The present Minister and Mawans able assistant Abdul Karim Hamzah is now carrying out his good work by also encouraging many different cultural programmes to continue the good work laid out .

The recent “heat” on the event ‘Octoberfest” was also given a positive response by the Minister which Mawan himself should pat his own shoulder. Karim was also quoted,”“Down here (Sarawak), it has always been promoted as Oktoberfest. They don’t promote it as a beer festival. If it is Oktoberfest, I don’t see any problem with it because it is a celebration of culture. That is why when some extremists or some people claim this is a beer festival, I don’t really agree.

Mawan himself said this ,”while politics can be highly charged the attainment of political goal can be through also the golf swing.” Mawan reiterated that it is in this era of fast track digital information and technological advances that the harmony and solidarity of people must be protected.

To further enhance Mawans point,”the Conference of Malay Rulers has even expressed concern at the state of harmony and unity in the country, making reference to the Muslims-only laundrettes and other recent incidents.

Mawans politics has Shifted Gears from ensuring that the people in his constituency basic needs of water,roads,bridges,education,housing are all taken care off to another level where he outreaches to all. He has never stop imparting the significance and importance of moderation and solidarity to all Sarawakians.

Many in his constituency sees the good in him and are willing him on to continue to serve as their Saratok representative in Parliament. Their voices are been heard significantly by the top BN hierarchy.

This quote,”while we may have known Mawan well but there may be still much that we do not know about him. But one thing we all know about him for a long time is that he is a FIGHTER.” This basically sums it up on Mawan(at least according to BN Sarawak Secretary General and Minister Dr.Stephen Rundi)

Mawan knows there are no fixed rules to succeed to serve the Saratok people well but he uses his personal values,qualities and non confrontational approach to achieve a higher level of goodness.

The inter community golf serves the purpose to further enhance the solidarity and moderation which is crucial to safeguard the unity of all Sarawakians and shelter all from the howling Extremism and Fanaticism wind blowing across the world.

amawan18bIt might sound simplistic to be involve in an inter community golf tournament but the deeper significance is for all to see as the participants are very attuned to the principles of solidarity and moderation.

Mawan would want this interaction of participants to tee-off to its 10th Year but they all have to start driving it off the green first come the 21st of October 2017.

The Gears have Shifted and it has GONE BEYOND what one has perceived and it is here to stay.
