“Stark Realities of Politics”

Call a spade is a spade. However,in politics this does not necessarily be the case. There are many factors to consider before a final decision of candidacy through consensus is reached by the top hierarchy in Barisan Nasional. These are the Stark Realities of Politics.

politicsThe Parliamentary Seat of Saratok is now being closely watched by both the Barisan and Opposition members who have an eye for the seat.

We are sure that most people have tried the three legged race. There must be synchronicity, communication and teamwork. If there are not in tandem,the end result is falling flat on their face

You must be wondering why this “three legged race is so significant? Its not just the three legged race but a BIGGER PICTURE.

Its already an open secret that Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) has three lobbyists for the Saratok Parliamentary Seat in entrepreneurs Subeng Mula , Basil Thomas, and medical practitioner Dr James Chella to unseat the incumbent and seting  BN/MP William Mawan.

BN election team is monitoring the whole situation and this posting will not be overlooked”a facebook user by the name Ru’yun Tirasag, who alleged that all the three PDP aspirants for Saratok were either members or supporters of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).”

Preparations for the party to announce the party’s “chosen candidate” is underway according to sources from the party. The man touted to be leading contender for the candidacy and to be announced by PDP in Saratok will be Subeng Mula.

There are obviously dissatisfaction already within the ranks as some prefer Dr.James Chella who they feel is more accomplished and a Saratok ‘elitists”

The age factor was used to go against Dr Chella even though his qualifications are a plus point. He is considered “old at 66 years” as per some of the information being shared in the cyber world which has hurt the feelings of his supporters.(will not want to expose them here..Hmmm)

What’s wrong with growing up and growing older? You learn more, is more caring and you will be more broad minded and will be more appreciative towards the people says Mawan in a telephone call when asked about “BEING OLD”.

James Chella could have certainly used the incumbent as a fine example where Mawan is not only accommodating in his service to the constituency but when called upon by the people to sing and dance he does so very much like a 48 year old instead of a 68 year old.

Age should not be used to determine the candidacy and we are pretty sure that these words by Mawan (extracted from a previous article https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/06/06/mawans-unquestionable-loyalty/  will be considered more by BN,”There is no winnability without loyalty. Everyone claims to be winnable. Barisan Nasional will need to pick the most winnable. It is of course UNQUESTIONABLE  LOYALTY. We must quell all these aspiring and lobbyists as Barisan spirit must reign supreme.”

He continued without Prime Minister Najib Razak and he as the President then fighting for the party SPDP today Saratok will have fallen to PKR.

Where were the ones and the rests of them who stakes a claim for PDP today when MAWAN needs them most at the time?

Who is going to take the “LION SHARE FOR THE MESS AND CONFUSION?” It’s not only the three legged race in Saratok that has open up the party to be scrutinized thoroughly by the BN Hierarchy but also the “margin of winnability “of the other 3 PDP seats.

SPDP in its inception years had 8 State assemblyman and 4 MP’s in its quota. The party was embroiled in a bitter infighting through the years and now it has only 3 state YB’s and 3 MPs in the party.

Mawan holds not only the Parliamentary Seat of Saratok but also the DUN seat of Pakan. Its another loss for PDP if Mawan so decides not to return to the fold but joins a party of his choice in due time. Surely,one would not expect the assemblyman of Bekenu and Batu Danau who joined PBB to return to PDP now.

PDP would want to contest that they still are the ‘rightful heir” to the above seats but in political reality the truth is that the seat is now lost together with the assemblyman choosing the party of their choice.

The “Big Picture Perception”goes beyond Saratok seat and many are saying that Mawan is not seated in any party.

Mawan himself at the moment does not belong to any or is joining any of those political parties but to those who knows Mawan well enough knows he is ‘sitting on a mountain”

Will BN in GE14 gamble with an’unknown entity‘ in Saratok and lose the seat to PKR? 

BN does not want to be in disarray and they want someone who can deliver them the seat. The Incumbent and sitting BN MP falls into the category as he has shown time and time again in his pursuit to deliver the promises to the people (see pic an example of project deliverance by Mawan).

pakanMawans enthusiasm is youthful in every sense in ensuring that covering the state seat and parliamentary seat.His 30 years in politics plus experience has put him in a commanding position to be considered.

Didn’t he also win the “Anugerah Membara Parlimen Terbaik for Sarawak” in only his first term?

He has also delivered in the Saratok Parliamentary Constituency. ( http://www.theborneopost.com/2014/12/10/award-for-saratok-kudos-for-mawan/ )

No matter what though, PDP will try their utmost to dislodge Mawan but the BN Hierarchy will not want to lose someone of Mawans calibre who puts his soul and heart to the job required of him to serve the constituency.

Thats the Stark Reality of Politics which PDP is faced with and they need to wake up to the fact that they are now very much smaller in numbers and declining from the days when they commanded 8 State seats and 4 Parliamentary seat.

The RECONCILIATION PROCESS with Mawan returning must therefore not be ruled out for the party. PDP stands more to win than to lose in the long haul.

That’s Politics not a Spade.

DAP “Speechless….ATHEIST OK Bah.!!”

The country’s civil servants are now taking the brunt of politicians and general public at large from trying to push their message across in terms of scholarships,race and religion.

Malaysians have grown up no doubt and while we grow up they will be many obstacles which the country will faced.  Some good laws, some obsolete laws while some needs to be revised and looked into by our parliamentarians and state legislators. 50 years for a country to put everything in order is indeed a very short time.

Not all things will be fair to the naked eye but obviously the people who implement and deliver what the policy holders deliberate must also know that there are a lot of ‘sensitive issues which must be dealt with amicably”.

Malaysia is a multi racial,multi cultural and multi religious country where Malays,Chinese,Indians,Kedazans,Ibans and other ethnic races live together and surely they will be differences but we accept that we need to live peacefully in accordance with the Federal constitution. If we move slightly away from its origin

“TROUBLE WILL ENSUE

We are not about to lecture the DAP on this issue but we need to address this issue by angling it correctly instead of politiking on it.  Yea,DAP is a political party we know and without a doubt its like scoring points 1 Up to the gallery. We all know too you are doing your job by publicising it but one must remember this is a highly sensitive issue.

Lets take up my case and see whether I make sense or not. We all were young once,brash,radical rebellious and at times uncontrollable. I do come from a staunch Catholic background and when we were young we followed everything our parents threw at us in accordance to our faith and the many no no’s which are ‘blasphemy’ if we break them. I confessed my sins every month without failed. If I did not I imagined I will be attacked by the “devil and his followers

Religious festivals,prayers were all kept in checked. Sunday Masses were a must and all attempts were made not to miss them. When the boy grew up thats me coming from overseas the boy changed to a man and started questioning. I stopped going to church on Sundays and even had a good ‘three hours session being lectured” with my uncle who was parish priest  of St Josephs at that time in 1984. He is still a Priest but now the Parish priest of Blessed Sacrement BDC in Kuching Sarawak. (you have my permission to asks him) At the end of the blistering and hard counselling I was given a chance to speak.

I said to him in front of my dad. Why should I go to Church? It doesn’t make me any holier than thou.? I also said Why was I not given a choice of religion? Why was I baptise to the faith? Then I could see the anger and the astonishment from their eyes.

My dad replied,” Oh Yeah, when you are born if we know you are going to be like that we might as well save the money spent on milk for a better purpose(Want to know the exact words.We might just as well KILL YOU or starve you and leave you for DEAD. no need to waste the duit susu  ).See whether you could be like what you are today” Today I see it. Our parents wants the bests for us. They can give us a religion to follow but in the end its up to us to CONTINUE PRACTISING IT. We have our own choices but its up to us.

As for the DAP Komtar assemblyman he is trying to do the bests for his child but it could be a genuine mistake and it also could be put right by seeing the officer in charge. We also do not know what really transpire between him and the NRD clerk on duty. Do you know what actually happen..?? Was the CCTV on??

I must say when I changed my IC earlier this year I tested the NRD lady. Of course I was cheeky and naughty and she took it. She was putting the RACE in my IC I said,” Rojak.. she said,”cannot ..how come I said mixed blood so I put Sino/Melanau.  She changed to Chinese so I took it eventhough my name had an extra name behind( ….. curious dbl click here)

{The only reason why I changed my old IC was that the immigration officer in Sabah when I entered say this is the last time we allow you to use the old IC and now we have Mycard.

I have a tendency to love to go against the system to tests it fully and I was reminded by the former Home Minister who said,”we can still use the old IC until such time it outlived its usage and will be obsolete. I remember telling the officer I am after all a Malaysian with or without a Mycard. He accepted and after trying my luck in and out of Sabah a number of times it I might just run out of LUCK and I could be turned back to Sarawak for reasons like being a ‘ bad element/hat“. So I became a good boy again. Really…!!!  :p

Next it came to Religion I put ATHEIST . { One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods} She said sure or not and I said alright. She doubled checked everything before she put into the system and I asks her NICELY AND COURTEOUSLY boleh kah repeat?

I said not Atheist but a Catholic. I have a choice to lie and should even have capitalised on the system if I wanted while the little girl had no choice.Parents up and down the country will no doubt look into this matter now more seriously and carefully.

To be Speechless I don’t think so. Stand up and be Corrected.Help and assists to put it right more like it YB. We have already told you that Malaysia is still very much a young country and we need to help our civil service at times too. The laws that govern the country can be put right through the proper channels and through the Legislative houses i.e in Parliament.  The laws might be outdated and thats why you are in position to asks your colleagues in Parliament to do something about it. We told Hannah Yeoh your Selangor DAP YB too and the same goes for you.

 NO USE TO BISING(shout) LIKE THIS

WE HEAR YOU…………..    

Below:-The internet portal article which has created a STIR  but the Bersih 2.0 rally on the 9th July 2011 seems to have overshadowed it all.

More cases of rejected attempts by parents to register their children with the National Registration Department as ‘Anak Malaysia’ have poured in.

NONEThe latest case is that of Komtar assemblyperson Ng Wei Aik (right), who was dealt the same fate as his counterpart in Kuala Lumpur Hannah Yeoh yesterday when he registered the birth of his second daughter Ng Caryn.

Caryn, born on June 11, was registered by her parents as “Anak Malaysia” for race and “Belum Ada (none yet)” for religion.

But when the official birth certificate was issued to Ng, the two sections were written as “Chinese” for race and “Buddha” for religion.

Ng, who is political secretary to the Penang chief minister, is “speechless” that the NRD, without consultation and without his approval, has chosen the race and religion of his own child.

Rather than blaming the officer, Ng targetted his complaint squarely at NRD’s rigid system, expressing disbelief that his child was “ordained” a Buddhist when he clearly stated that she does not yet have a religion.

He was equally upset that Chinese was chosen as the child’s race instead of Anak Malaysia.

“Why should she decide this for me? This is a serious matter…why we cannot have a choice for our own children, to register them as Anak Malaysia without a religion yet,” he said.

“This is the spirit of 1Malaysia and should be encouraged. Our future generation should have the liberty and freedom to decide their own race and religion,” he added.

Appealing against NRD’s ‘unethical act’

Responding to a Malaysiakini article yesterday highlighting that the NRD issued birth certificates without the ethnicity of the child between 1996 and 2000, Ng said it was not necessary to state those two elements.

The issue of ethnicity in birth certificate registration and other official forms was raised after Yeoh, Subang Jaya MP, failed to register her daughter’s race as ‘Anak Malaysia’ earlier this month.

Like in Ng’s case, the NRD officer rejected the parents’ request and chose ‘Chinese’ as the race of their daughter Shay Adora Ram.

The NRD has clarified that the race of the child must stem from either parent in a mixed marriage and that no ‘mixed-race’ registration is allowed.

Though he recognizes that he is ethnically Chinese, Ng still thinks he should be given the choice to select his own race as Anak Malaysia.

He said he was appealing against the “unethical act” of the NRD officer who, when asked, told him that a child must be registered according to the father’s or mother’s race and religion.

“Our system is outdated and corrupt until there is no flexibility for us to decide our own faith and religion,” he said.

“I do not want to force my future generation to follow my race and religion…I do not want them to be like (those) who did not have a choice before” he added.

SUPP “The sunset years No.1….?”

 We are in the process of compiling an overall true picture of what has happen to SUPP and why it has not got the “clear mandate” from the Chinese Community. There are more than a thousand “WHYS” and “IFS” but the truth is it has fallen from a giant to a mere mosquito party. The Chinese have rejected the party in droves and if the Dayak YBs did not deliver SUPP will have only 2 Assemblyman. Doesn’t that have similarities like the Peninsular based party “Gerakan..??”

audie61 had breakfast with a senior political veteran and he suggested that the independant candidate George Lagong be ‘roped” into SUPP as Pelagus has many SUPP members. It will be good for SUPP and maybe in the next State elections the urban seats can be exchanged with other component parties. This audie61 played up many ‘moons ago” and it was suggested even to give Pending seat to PRS Batu Lintang to  SPDP and Kota Sentosa to PBB in exchange for other safe seats for SUPP.

Who knows what might have happened? The allocation of seats is by concensus and as such no one should make full claim of the seats. (This should be seriously considered by the BN coalition as SUPP has losts the seats twice already. Other seats should also be looked into and a clear cut one would be Kidurong.

We would not be well loved by SUPP members but reality hurts and the members must know how to swallow their pride. James Masing  President of PRS swallowed his pride as told by CM Taib and look where he is now.The second largest component party in Sarawak. SPDP had some minor problems in infighting and this played a little paert in the loss of the two seats.”Krian and Ba’Kelalan”.The power sharing concept was losts in Krian as told by sources on the ground.

PBB remains solid eventhough there were minor skirmishes here and there. They were unafraid to seek assistance from other component parties in the areas which they had problems in and maybe SUPP needs to learn a thing or two from them. If SUPP does not pull up their socks we would not be be writing the “sunset years No.1.”

It would be SUPP “The Return of a GREAT PARTY” 

It’s up to the BN coalition to do an indepth research and come up with the realistic facts and figures on the fallen of SUPP. There is nothing more to hide and please the politicians in SUPP as the mandate from the people is clear and seemingly LOUD in the ballot boxes. We will on our part be truthful as we have collected the facts plus datas and as such some divisions are in for a good hiding from us at audie61. The sunset years No.2 will be no holds barred ,straight and cooked from the oven.  

SUPP remember we said “wake up in our earlier article………………….check it up..

“DAP Pamphlet Troopers On The Move.SUPP Wake Up.!!”

 

Having a morning breakfast surrounded by DAP pamphlet troopers is one thing. They are using very able and friendly,young and pretty canvassers to attract the people to receive. Wow! they can’t even wait for nomination day on the 6th April 2011 to start distributing. Any election rules broken may i ask the election commission.?? Are they afraid of SUPP?

What has SUPP got that they are worried of? Has SUPP reached out and called for the other component parties to assist in canvassing? Component parties are willing to help but it seems that SUPP is keeping operations “tightly knotted”

One component party member even said,”How can SUPP lose the chinese seats when their members already make up half the voting strength in the constituencies? They must be soemthing wrong with their “jentera” Maybe their director of operations have conveniently forgotten that within their midst they are three other parties within reach and has soldiers who are all ready to move for Barisan National.

Its not the right and appropriate time to make noise but they are 16 days for SUPP to put it right and wrestle the seats back with assistance from the other three remaining coalition partners in PRS,PBB and SPDP. The spirit of BN is ever willing to assist SUPP but if the respective constituencies feels that they can go it alone “its a fair game” Surely,one will not just be a “party pooper” and will also be given the “LOOKS.” You know what I mean..??

Some SUPP constituencies particularly the rural ones are using and maximising the coalitions party boys and girls to the full. Its about time SUPP wake up and know that in the urban areas they are the component parties to help you. In 2006 the machinery broke down and many within the coalition partners are still around 5 years on. They remember. “WOUNDS MIGHT HEAL SCAR REMAINS……..

http://www.confuseall.wordpress.com has all the photographs to prove what we mention will be an achilles heel for SUPP. Everyone is reading……grrrrrr.

So SUPP Please don’t repeat and make the same old mistakes. Open Up..

Taib”Yesterday,Today and Tomorrow…”

There was a lot of “hurrahs’ and ‘yeahs” when Larry Sng’s application to join BN direct candidate was turned down at the BN supreme Council Meeting. That was Yesterday as far as Taib Mahmud the CM was concerned. Yesterday Taib kept his lips to himself and he knows that the BN supreme council was not the avenue for him to be trapped.

Yesterday too the report was,”The decision not to accept him(Sng)was unanimous and his case was not even debated by all component parties “said the source. Many even questioned as to why Taib Kept quiet?

Simple,”just wait till we get back home to Sarawak guys”

Today:-meaning all “hell broke loose” even at the teh tarik and kolok mee stalls that Taib has given ‘lifeline” to the young man.The mass-media/newspapers throughout Sarawak published and Taib was quoted as saying ,”he plans to keep Assistant Minister Larry in the Chief minister’s office for some time. BN Sarawak chairman Taib said Sng is useful to the government and loyal to BN.

He went on to say,”I can still keep him because he’s a very useful fellow. He works very well and his loyalty to BN is unquestionable.”  

“The Headline Reads” CM to keep Pelagus rep

A political analysts said,”There is a very strong statement and a hidden message behind what Taib has done.” If reading it correctly Taib is sending a well meant statement that he is still the one holding the PEN in Sarawak. He oversees the candidates lists and he will make the final decision.No one disturbs and interferes in Sarawak candidates lists. Anyone can cry and try to lobby but he is the ultimate signatory when it involves BN Sarawak.

Tomorrow,”which CM has not decided yet as he has not reached his final decision many are saying Larry will be fielded in Pelagus and its a slap to the face of PRS.

Is it true.? No Way…

CM has been thinking what lies ahead for Larry TOMORROW but he has not decided just yet. An emeritus professor said,”we have jumped the gun as CM only said Sng is useful to the government and loyal to the BN.”

There are many possibilities and Tomorrow he might say,”let’s make Larry an  Ambassador to New Zealand or …………………..” and everyopne will be happy and there will be many more hurrahs and everyone will be too happy and forget about Larry Sng in this coming State Elections. Another feather in the cap for Taib as he balances his house very well. 

So goes the saying,”you win today,Tomorrow is another different day while Yesterday is justs history”

Let us not justs keep ourselves in the box and lets look forward and look beyond what lies ahead for Sarawak and its people.

An extract from an internet blog on similar subject” Now, back in Sarawak, Taib said that Larry Sng is still relevant and is needed as he is”a strong Barisan supporter and worked very hard”! What now then? Is Taib stance not a defiance to the ruling made in KL just 48 hours ago? Well, brace for it PRS! Its Taib territory and there is no messing around.Taib is not interested in what the top leader in BN KL had to say on Sarawak affair, period! Be very afraid!

Remember,’ The Pen is still here in BN Sarawak
