Spat on Sarawak’s Rights turns to #Fakenews

It’s gone Viral and “someone”has taken  this opportunity to capitalize” on the subject matter in hand. The Chief Minister’s office has issued a statement to stop the rumours and the #FAKENEWS.

This must have been the result of that”someone”using the “PALOI” issue (see below) to get  even with the Chief Minister. 

afake newsThe recent public spat between the controversial Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia and Chief Minister Abang Johari Abang Openg with regards to a public debate challenge on the “importance” of the Malaysian Agreement 1963 on the rightful status of Sabah and Sarawak.

The exchange got heated up and names were even thrown around, with the chief minister calling the speaker “paloi,” a local term for “stupid.

“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.

“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.

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.

 

SEKONGKOL POLITIK DAP DAN MAHATHIR

ajunaidi1SEKONGKOL POLITIK DAP DAN MAHATHIR : SARAWAK TIDAK LUAK

1. Saya sebenarnya tidak pernah berminat untuk membaca apatah lagi membalas coretan politik Aziz Isa dan Dr Kelvin Yii yang saya anggap selama ini hampas dan tidak memberi apa apa kesan kepada pencapaian cemerlang politik PBB di Sarawak. Namun kenyataan berani YB Dato Sri Wan Junaidi baru-baru ini mengenai idola DAP iaitu Tun Mahathir dan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim telah menyebabkan kedua dua Pembantu Politik YB Chong Chieng Jen meroyan tahap gaban dalam FB dan kenyataan di media sosial mereka. Atas dasar kasihan kepada kedua mereka yg jelas telah menunjukkan tahap pengetahuan politik yang amat terbatas dan cetek , maka saya terpanggil untuk menjernihkan kekusutan dan kecelaruan minda mereka.

2. Apa yang dimaksudkan oleh Dato Sri Wan Junaidi bahawa beliau berdiam diri selama 20 tahun adalah berdiam diri dari bercerita mengenai kejadian Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim membaling fail kepada beliau sewaktu dalam satu sesi perbincangan 20 tahun yang lepas di Putrajaya dimana Dato Sri Wan Junaidi memohon agar peruntukan MRP setiap Ahli Parlimen Sabah dan Sarawak ditambah kepada RM 500 ribu seorang. Namun Dato Sri Anwar Ibrahim terus berdiri dan membaling fail ke arah Datuk Sri Wan Junaidi dan berkata ‘ Saya tidak boleh membuang semua duit ke Sabah dan Sarawak ‘. Celarunya otak Aziz dan Dr Kelvin adalah mereka hanya fokus kepada bahagian cerita diamnya Dato Sri Wan Junaidi dari bercerita tentang kisah ini tetapi tidak melihat kepada keseluruhan cerita bahawa Dato Sri Wan Junaidi yang bersuara untuk kepentingan dan keperluan Sabah Sarawak . Aziz dan Dr Kelvin juga secara sengaja tidak melihat bahagian angkuhnya Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim menolak rintihan rakyat yang dibawa oleh Dato Sri Wan Junaidi. Budak Tadika Permata pun boleh faham rentetan cerita ini yang menggambarkan usaha Dato Wan Junaidi yang telah bertindak dan berjuang untuk kepentingan rakyat Sarawak manakala Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim adalah watak antagonis dalam cerita ini. Namun Dato Sri Wan Junaidi atas dasar semangat setiakawan BN tidak menceritakan mengenai insiden ini. Beliu juga percaya kepada perjuangan BN dan tetap terus berusaha sehingga akhirnya sewaktu Pak Lah dan Dato Sri Najib menjadi PM, maka barulah peruntukan pembangunan Ahli Parlimen Sabah dan Sarawak telah ditambah dan diganda seperti yang dipinta.

3. Saya jadi lucu melihat celoteh politik Aziz dan Dr Kelvin yang berulang ulang kali bertanya apa jasa Dato Sri Wan Junaidi kepada Sarawak. Lucu yang hampir membuat saya muntah hijau. Saya selaku pembantu dan Setiausaha Politik kepada Dato Sri Wan Junaidi sejak tahun 2005 sehingga kini amat mengetahui apa yang telah diusahakan oleh beliau untuk rakyat Sarawak. Kepada Aziz dan Dr Kelvin,sila rujuk buku tulisan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi bertajuk ‘A Policeman ‘ , sebelum anda lahir lagi iaitu pada tahun 1969 sehingga 1973 , Wan Junaidi sudah berperang di dalam hutan berhadapan dan menentang komunis. Beliau sewaktu itu berumur 22 tahun dan berpangkat Inspektor dalam Pasukan Polis Hutan telah mengetuai satu platun dan bertempur secara berhadapan dengan komunis dalam 5 operasi.

Beliau telah melihat sendiri bagaimana anak buah platun nya hancur kepala, terkeluar otak dan terburai perut sewaktu bertempur dengan komunis bahkan pernah sekali peluru komunis tersasar betul-betul di atas kepala beliau dan kini, Aziz Isa serta Dr Kalvin bertanya apakah jasa Dato Sri Wan Junaidi ? Aziz, sebesar manakah jasa yang telah anda pula taburkan untuk Sarawak sehingga anda layak untuk mempersoalkan apakah jasa Wan Juanidi kepada Sarawak????

4. Bagaimana mungkin Aziz dan Dr Kelvin boleh mengatakan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi berdiam diri selama 20 tahun sedangkan Wan Junaidi adalah antara Ahli Parlimen BN yang paling lantang dan keras bersuara di Parlimen Malaysia sepanjang tempoh beliau berkhidmat sebagai Yang Berhormat. Sila lah rujuk handsard Parlimen Malaysia anda pasti akan menemui Wan Junaidi dalam rekod hansard yang mana di dalam hampir setiap sidang parlimen beliau akan bercakap membawa isu-isu dari Sarawak. Oleh kerana terlalu lantang itulah maka Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim pernah menyenarai hitam nama Wan Junaidi untuk mewakili Malaysia ke luar Negara selama 6 tahun sehinggalah Pak Lah menjadi Timbalan Perdana Menteri.

5. Wan Junaidi jugalah Ahli Parlimen yang pertama yang menyuarakan dan mencadangkan kepada Parlimen dan Kerajaan Malaysia untuk penubuhan kampus Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) sewaktu sidang Parlimen pada tahun 1991 walaupun beliau telah mendapat amaran dari Anwar Ibrahim selaku TPM masa itu agar tidak membangkitkan isu ini. Wan Junaidi telah berulang ulang kali menbawa usul ini dengan nada yang keras dan turut dibantu oleh Ahli Ahli Parlimen BN Sarawak yang lain sehingga majalah Perempuan pada masa itu telah membuat liputan utama dalam majalah mereka dengan tajuk “ Wan Junaidi MP Batang Lupar Seganas Bujang Senang” sehingga akhirnya UNIMAS ditubuhkan secara rasmi pada tahun 1992. Layakkah Aziz Isa graduan dari UNIMAS mempersoalkan jasa-jasa perjuangan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi? Aziz Isa sebaliknya harus berterima kasih kepada Dato Sri Wan Junaidi…. Aziz Isa harus bertaubat.

6. Sewaktu dialog semua Ahli Yang Berhormat BN dari Sarawak bersama dengan Dato Sri Najib di Bangunan PWTC pada tahun 2012 , Dato Sri Wan Junaidi telah menyatakan kepada Dato Sri Najib mengenai keperluan pembinaan hospital baharu Sarawak dan dalam majlis itu Dato Sri Wan Junaidi telah menyerahkan surat rasmi mengenai cadangan dan permohonan beliau itu. Pada akhir 2012 , Setiausaha Sulit PM iaitu Dato Amir Haron telah menghubungi saya dan memaklumkan bahawa Dato Sri Najib Razak bersetuju untuk meluluskan RM 650 juta untuk pembinaan hospital baharu Sarawak seperti yang dipohon oleh Dato Sri Wan Junaidi. Walaupun projek hospital tersebut yang sekarang ini dinamakan sebagai Hospital Umum Petra Jaya terlewat dari jadual siap namun saya percaya projek ini akan siap jua nanti. Bila Aziz Isa dan Dr Kelvin datang membawa emak dan bapa mereka ke hospital itu nanti maka berterima kasihlah juga kepada Dato Sri Wan Junaidi.

7. Sebenarnya sepanjang pengalaman saya bekerja dengan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi, amat banyak peruntukan dan projek-projek pembangunan rakyat yang telah diluluskan oleh Dato Sri Najib hasil permohonan langsung Dato Sri Wan Junaidi kepada Dato Sri Najib termasuklah kelulusan RM 25 juta untuk membina SK Matu Baru bagi kemudahan pusat pendidikan anak-anak penduduk kampung Bintawa ( telah siap 2013 ), RM 60 juta untuk menyiapkan sekolah SMK Seni Kuching ( telah siap 2015 ), RM 20 juta untuk pembinaan tempat-tempat ibadah di Parlimen Santubong termasuklah masjid, gereja dan dewan masyarakat India, RM 125 juta untuk pembinaan jalan 2 hala Kampung Tanjung Bako ( siap pada 2015), RM 10 juta untuk membina jalan premix menggantikan titi kayu di Kampung Bintawa, RM 45 juta untuk jalan Bradek Semilang, RM 120 juta untuk projek sistem bekalan air Daerah Lundu, RM 300 juta untuk Projek Rancangan Tebatan Banjir Bandar Kuching dan seluruh Sarawak dan banyak lagi projek-projek yang langsung tidak dipedulikan oleh Tun Mahathir dulu tapi telah diluluskan dibawah pentadbiran Dato Sri Najib sebagai Perdana Menteri.

8. Tak perlulah saya nak jelaskan kepada Aziz Isa sumbangan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi di kawasan Parlimen Santubong. Peningkatan undi majoriti Dato Sri Wan Junaidi antara majoriti yang tertinggi dalam pilihanraya PRU 13 yang lepas sudah cukup menunjukkan perjuangan dan kerja-kerja pembangunan yang dilakukan oleh Wan Junaidi adalah diterima dan diktiraf oleh penduduk Parlimen Santubong sehingga kedua-dua calon pembangkang yang melawan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi telah hilang wang cengkeram. Aziz Isa harus menerima fakta bahawa Dato Sri Wan Junaidi is the darling of Parlimen Santubong.

9. Namun bukan budaya kerja BN untuk mengaku sebagai one man show. Sebab itulah , walaupun banyak sumbangan yang dibuat, namun Dato Sri Wan Junaidi tidak pernah mendabik dada berkata itu hasil kerja beliau seorang kerana beliau percaya kepada kejayaan pencapaian beliau adalah hasil kerja berkumpulan dari peringkat tertinggi BN Nasional dan Negeri sehinggalah ke pekerja parti. Semangat keutuhan setiakawan Barisan Nasional inilah yang memberi keyakinan kepada beliau bahawa sekongkol politik Tun Mahathir bersama dengan DAP Sarawak tidak akan memberi luak kepada BN Sarawak. Kalau 2013 kita dapat melihat gelombang crowd yg lebih besar di pentas politik Pakatan Rakyat di Sarawak namun akhirnya hampir semua calon BN Sarawak mendapat undi majoriti yang meningkat dan tinggi termasuklah Wan Junaidi, Fadillah Yusof, James Dawos,Nancy Shukri, Rohani Karim , Ahmad Lai, Wahab Dolah dan Norah Abdul Rahman dan lain lain.

The Truth is Out There!!

apdpThe 3 PDP Lobbyists are trying to convince the Barisan Nasional Hierarchy that they are more than capable of retaining the seat for the coalition. The Question remains how convincing have they been?

It does seem that every time they push their wagon up the hill it gets steeper. Their lobbying tactics have led to many voters who were unhappy and disgusted with their personal attacks on the Barisan Nasional elected sitting incumbent MP. They are now seeing the truth and with the many programmes and people-centric projects which are delivered by the MP they see no reason whatsoever to rock the boat.

THE TRUTH IS DEFINITELY OUT THERE and our June 17th article https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/06/17/mawan-exclusiveimbroglio-in-saratok/  did noticebly caught the attention of the lobbyists by the throat and cleared the controversy of Mawan being the ADUN and MP. We do not need to highlight further and PDP President himself is keeping his lips sealed. He too knows that the rumour that has been swirling on the ground and the lobbyists being ‘privately friendly” with the opposition PKR.

Lately,the State Barisan Nasional Secretary-General Dato Sr Dr Stephen Rundi have said this,”to be frank with you,we are ready for the General election if it is held tomorrow. We will field the most WINNABLE candidates for all the 31 seats.”

Don’t you think that this statement by the State BN SG sounds very familiar which is in line with the Barisan Nasional Chairman and Prime Minister?

BN SG even dodged on the seat held by the incumbent MP in Saratok,”we leave it to the top leadership to decide.” The situation on the ground is very much in favour of the sitting and Incumbent MP and the political statement mentioned clearly state the facts of the matter.

Moreover the PM at the BN Supreme Council meeting has stated very clearly on the lobbying of candidates,it’s the people’s choice,people’s will should be the prevailing consideration.

PM Najib knows that GE14 he must not compromise the “SAFE BN SEATS” by fielding candidates who are not tested and have linkages to the opposition. He has his ears on the ground and have sent his own team to check the ground on all the 222 Parliamentary seats. Najib knows that the Saratok seat was not won easily and he would want to keep it that way. There is indeed a line one should not cross and Mawan is keeping his cool especially with the lobbyists. Even the PDP Youth who had mentioned that there will be a new face in Saratok did not even lift an eyelid for Mawan. Would he be too worried ?

Surely not, as he is busy working the ground and keeping in constant touch with the voters who will ensure a win for BN and his return to the Parliament for a second term. Mawan has always practised the Sun Tzu tactical options,”he receives his commands from the top BN hierarchy,assembles his election machinery and mobilises the people to take care of the needs and wants of the Parliamentary constituency. He will not linger too much on the 3 lobbyists ,concentrate on critical areas and varies the tactics to win over the fence sitters to win the seat comfortably.

Would the 3 lobbyists be able to do that? 

They have been too much baggage to carry with them and the hill that they have trudged on have now become a mountain. They have forgotten the simple rules in politics and that is “Fight only the battles you can win and know yourself and know who the Incumbent is. ”

There has been too much information being sought by the many agencies on the ground and leaves many unanswered questions on them. Their one serious mistake have not only been not “RESPECTING AN INCUMBENT SITTING BN MP” but also being RUBBERSTAMPED as “Half PDP at best,Half PKR at worst

This will be a BIG MINUS POINT for PDP if they continue to use the 3 to engage the incumbent. The BN ADUNS in Kalaka,Kabong and Meluan plus MP Julau have stood by the MP Saratok and they are seen being very comfortable and have every intention to see their fellow BN colleague win in the next GE14. They certainly will not want to see instability and thus create a “backlash” to the ruling BN stranglehold in Saratok.

They too know very well the “masterplan” of PKR for the area and it goes without a doubt they will use all their resources to assist the incumbent to retain the seat for BN. If the lobbyists think that they can ride on the ADUNS back to score ‘brownie points” they are in for disappointment. The voters too will not be compromised.

BN is not about to sacrifice a safe seat to the opposition through the backdoor in P205 and the lobbyist will be kept at arms length. Mawan will continue to serve the constituency of Saratok and will leave the candidacy to the top BN hierarchy. They all want a piece of Mawan and have used all sorts of ways and methods to ensure he falls but Mawan as always says,” it’s a democratic right for any one to contest or lobby but please do not cross the line.

Saratok Parliamentary seat has been won by BN in GE13 and Mawan will defend this seat.He will not only bring the enemy to the battlefied but will inflict a more than painful plus damaging loss to the them and their INTENDED PLANS( which is Krian seat and Saratok Parliamentary seat under PKR ).

Mawan knows Saratok much better now as he has served them for the last 4 and half years and his actions on the ground are testament that Saratok is moving in the right direction in terms of further progress and development.

Will the 3 lobbyists do a much better job than what Mawan has done? The BN hierarchy will need more than 3 PDP party lobbying to ensure that the seat stays with Barisan Nasional.

The Truth remains that the BN leaders in Najib and CM Abang Jo knows what Mawan wants and they both value BN loyalty and a win for BN for Saratok in the upcoming GE14.

 

 

Aspiring Lobbyists”Missing the Target.?”

alobbyists

Strike 1..! Strike 2..!! Strike 3..!!! Ooops all.. MISSED.

Seriously, the 3 BN PDP lobbyists have not ‘done enough” to weaken the opposition PKR . Their tactics of incessant attack on BN’s Elected Incumbent MP 205 have not gone down too well within the BN Hierarchy Framework as its a ‘DIRECT SLAP ON THE FACES OF BARISAN NASIONAL COALITION

The Fact remains that the incumbent himself has not distanced himself from the constituency since the day he was elected in 2013. He has been working the ground providing and being with the constituents and being people-centric. Honestly, if he has Slackened or is an Absentee MP surely the main stream media,blogs and the internet portals will have ‘eaten him up for dinner and supper

Is there any need to have any onslaught on him who is very much a “Sitting Incumbent BN Member of Parliament”?

Why are the guns of the lobbyists not targeting the Opposition PKR?

Even the great SUN TZU would be rolling over his grave and wondering likewise.

The Lobbyists have concentrated mainly in the KRIAN area which without a doubt still remains a PKR seat held successfully for a 2nd term by Ali Biju who defeated Kilat Beriak (BN/SPDP) by 1640 votes. Did we get it wrong in our previous articles? Let’s refresh ourselves shall we.

  • Article 1. https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/07/12/lobbyistsbelittling-or-compromising-pdp-or-bn/
  • Article 2  https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/08/15/sympathiser-for-pkr-for-bn-p205-saratok/

We are indeed baffled to the extend that its very unbecoming for the President of the party to “still encourage” this lobbying exercise to continue. He is well advised but there seems to be a wool over his eyes especially when it comes to the Saratok Parliamentary Constituency. Of course, the party and the President will inform the BN hierarchy that all is well in the area? Is it?

Will it be wrong for the lobbyists to be praising the Incumbent BN MP on a job well done? Politically, for sure they would have scored ‘brownie points“if they will continue doing the same like the Incumbent if chosen on the BN ticket. This would certainly have gone down pretty well with the various government agencies on the ground covering their movements. Their communication with the people leaves much to be desired and a brief ‘internship‘ looks more likely for them.

Having said all that we are not in anyway belittling them but they have chosen the to focus on the wrong target and may have crossed the line once too often.

What have been seriously missing is that the lobbyists should have their guns blazing and focused on the weaknesses of the opposition parties in particular PKR instead of the BN incumbent. The fact remains on the lips and minds of the many hard core BN loyalists which simply is ,”

Will they be turncoats?”

Their “MISSING JABS AND BODY BLOWS” at the opposition party has not only created the uneasiness within the BN democratic framework but it could provide them with an Alternative and an Outlet to return to their former base. This is not unusual for politics .

Will that happen? 

We are not one to speculate on the future after the General elections but in time it will reveal the true colours of the aspiring lobbyists.

Are we being unfair to them? Surely,not..

Loyalty has been the mainstay and secret weapon for Barisan Nasional and its not just about to change. There is much concern and unease within the BN family that as the GE14 approaches many more skeletons in the closet will be unearthed on the lobbyists.

The Incumbent MP William Mawan is doing his duty calmly and diligently as a Parliamentarian in his constituency. His years of experience must not be overlooked and he has put it to good use. He has outreached to the people in his constituency in his first term and the BN coalition will put their trusts and their hope on retaining the seat through a winnable candidate.

Mawan has always been very magnanimous and he says this, “Don’t Pretend What You don’t know. If you Don’t know just ask

The Target is very wide open in P205 and it does seem that the Lobbyists have a lot to catch up before they finally hit the target. They still have much to learn from the Incumbent and BN Sitting MP in the experienced Tan Sri William Mawan. He is only a phone call away.

Until then the Barisan Nasional it seems will not be using them in the shop window just yet.

Are we wrong to say that? You will know better…..

Lobbyists’Belittling or Compromising PDP or BN..?”

Timely,Preplanned or has the same email (below) being dropped into the receipients ‘IN-BOX.” There are many unanswered questions within this political ‘imbroglio‘of Saratok which the Barisan National Hierarchy needs to addressed and to seek the HIDDEN TRUTH.

aacca.jpgPDP can be belittled but this Barisan Nasional Unity must not be compromised to preserve the seat from falling to the opposition in PKR. Isn’t the above called “strange bedfellows in English? meaning ( An unusual combination or political alliance “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.“)

This appeared in the local daily  but it was a denial by a senior vice president of PDP. The best part of it all is that it says,” Igai said it was quite a norm in politics that one could have been a member of another party, be it in the ruling or the opposition, before joining the present party.

“From what I know, Basil was once from the other side of the political divide, but it was over 10 years ago.

SURELY, this picture we received is not EXACTLY 10 YEARS AGO.  Could this be photoshopped by someone?

This is indeed a serious matter for BARISAN NASIONAL and the very reason that many seats were lost in the previous elections were partly due to internal sabotage and also leaders being led by ‘favouritism on the part of reports submission and integrity.

This ancient proverb holds some truth now,”The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” which suggests that two opposing parties can or should work together against a common enemy. Who is the PDP common enemy now? BN has an incumbent and sitting MP now unless there are very “WILD RUMOURS” he is not a Barisan Nasional Man.

However there are indeed swirling on the ground with reports,speculations and rumoured that the 3 lobbying candidates are being “USED TO CONVINCE” PDP that there are ‘worthy as the choice for the party and BN.”

Word from the opposition camp is that it will mean.”EASY PICKINGS FOR THE OPPOSITION PARTY TO SECURE THIS PARLIAMENTARIAN SAFE SEAT IF ANYONE OF THEM IS THE CANDIDATE.” 

Did PDP check this out?

BN knows that this seat must not be compromised and with the track record and impeccable service to the rakyat by the Incumbent they will find a solution and the CM and PM knows best what to do.

Aren’t they others in the PDP closet than these 3 which are already tainted even before GE is called?

BN will not have any sleepless night knowing that their Incumbent MP will not be “BULLIED INTO SUBMISSION” BN will stand by their loyal friend and maintain this safe seat.

BARISAN NASIONAL WILL SEEK THE TRUTH AND WILL NOT COMPROMISE A SAFE SEAT.

Paul,”Missed Opportunity” Mawan,”Effective Decision”

1spdp.jpgThe President of PDP Tiong have finally been ‘smoked out of his fox hole‘ by the interview conducted by Borneo Posts Peter Sibon.

Tiong as President, says a former youth member.”he has to come out with a statement or say something to appease the party loyalists and aspirants or they will all lost hope of their lobbying for their “traditional seats”for GE14.  Moreover he also touched on Anyi who needs to be work harder to improve his performance and this would not give motivation to yet another incumbent MP.Will Nogeh sail through that is another tricky question?

This is a political decision which PM Najib himself would and could easily advised Tiong,”the quality of  decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon..” However,Najib knows that Tiong is very much in a hurry to wrap up this “imbroglio” and informed his colleagues in BN that all is under control.

He himself is not 100% safe and looking over his shoulders in Bintulu or else he would not have talked about delineation exercise. We know that he won in 2013 with voters of 26458 against DAP John Brian Anthony garnering 19025.

Meanwhile audie61 made two separate phone calls one each to Paul Igai and William Mawan. Paul said its a ‘missed opportunity for reconciliation” as the momentum was there after the Pahang BN retreat. The PM had said in so many words that on Mawan’s case  it had to be done ‘fast”.

When questioned further on Tiong ‘s statement he gave a positive answer as ‘all is not lost” He also mentioned that Mawan would be welcome back with open arms and will not be dropped as an incumbent. Of course Paul knows very well what transpired too in the last state elections when Mawan was fielded as a direct BN candidate.  He also told us that there are too many ‘piranhas” swimming around and lurking around the President.

Before we said thank you for his inputs Paul said,’please read his statement which was published a few days ago.”

If we read it politically PDP would not want this seat to fall to another BN component party. They have every right to claim the traditional seat and the press release is a strong enough statement to justify .

We managed to track down Mawan who after coming back from Kuala Lumpur made his way to Kabong his MP constituency and now is on his way to Pakan for his DUN duties. audie61 asked him on the newspaper articles which PDP has made and he said ,”

‘I am serving both the people in my constituency and am more interested in getting down to the grassroots than doing petty politicking.

I have been elected to serve and am doing just that. The interest of Barisan Nasional is more important as we approach the GE14 and he said that he is so “entrenched in Saratok” that he will not take a step backward.

His main task is to consolidate all the groupings that exist in Saratok and to ensure that seat remains BN after GE14.

We were informed by our reliable sources that PDP President Tiong has been misinformed and illadvised on the situation on the ground. Mawan said ,’its up to Tiong to camp in Saratok for week or so and find out for himself instead of listening to hearsay’s which will do no good to Barisan Nasional.” He should come unnoticed quietly and he will know the real situation on the ground.

Mawan’s phone was breaking up as reception was not very clear he said,”in any elections, the product of information,analysis and critically the EFFECTIVE DECISION to act is important. This is a”bonus”safe seat for BN as he is the incumbent and he has worked hard to solidfy the seat for BN for GE14.”

Did Tiong make the effective decision and timing or will Tiong live to regret his actions?

Tiong knows the final say will rest with the State BN Chairman Abang Jo and PM Najib as the BN Chairman and for them to Sacrifice “WINNABILITY WITH LOYALTY” with a new and untested candidate is not exactly on their menu.

PM and CM will not want to go on the back foot and knows that Mawan will deliver the seat when called upon. PM himself  came down in 2013 when Mawan was at his lowest peak and he campaigned for Mawan to sail through against a “worthy opponent” in Ali Biju of PKR and other detractors who were hell bent of destroying and finishing off the then SPDP President.

PM Najib and CM Abang Jo will take all this factors into consideration and Paul could not have put it more nicely,”all is not lost

Mawan’s Unquestionable Loyalty.

amawan1.jpgIs the Prime Minister Najib Razak going to abandon Tan Sri Mawan as the winnable candidate for P205 Saratok?

Truthfully, Strategically and Politically we don’t think so. One can say its just our opinion but in this interview with Mawan he tells us some “liitle secrets” which will infact more than tickle PDP.

 PM Najib knows that Tan Sri Mawan in Saratok occupies the “High Ground” Najibs first rule as always is to occupy the heights which he has practised from the day he knows, reads and advised by those who also subsribe to this fundamental law of Sun Tzu which is” In battle and manoeuvring. all armies prefer high ground to low ground.”

Najib has the report and it was he in 2013 during GE13 who came to give full moral support as the Commander in Chief when all seems lost as PKR Ali Biju was gaining ground. It was not Ali Biju who was strong at that time but those SPDP members in the Jelaing’s and his group who turned against the party themselves. Mawan even remembers that he had to sought help from outside Saratok to fight and engage not only a common enemy in PKR but so called SPDP insiders within the party who were trying to dethrone the President to claim a memorable scalp for themselves.

Mawan himself quotes this,” 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 he needs them most at the time?

The SG and MP Mas Gading Anthony Nogeh should thank Mawan for his political ascension to be a candidate as he fought very hard for him to be there in 2013. Did he forget that Tiki Laffe was the choice? Mawan not only pleaded with the top BN leadership and was shown the ‘cold eyes” by the top man. The SPDP machinery was mobilised by those loyal to Mawan and of course Nogeh was elected.

Politically as SG he should be more subtle by following his President Tiong King Sing’s words who even said he would leave it to PM and CM to pick the candidate. He would have done himself a world of good by saying,” Mawan is welcomed back with Open Arms” Instead he harped and agreed to YB Harry Jinep who is very much Junior in hierarchy by fully supporting that the Saratok seat should go to PDP as it is traditionally a PDP seat.

Mawan knows that they are many aspiring and suitable candidates but they are Stacking their claims in front of his eyes as he is the incumbent? Nogeh and Jinep are jabbing and throwing punches to see how “his chin” will take it? Mawan will go the full 15 rounds with them as he still subscribes to UNITY  in Barisan Nasional.

He continued which fittingly are excerpts from his book,”there may be internal party matters or possibly some misunderstanding between members of component parties. If left unchecked,these may give rise to ill-feelings and suspicion,which are not healthy to Barisan Nasional.

Indeed,we cannot afford to have rivalry,competition and suspicion,in whatever sheds or modes and at whatever levels among us,especially when we are committed to pooling our resources and strenghts as people of Barisan nasional to advance the cause of DEVELOPMENT and stave off the opposition from standing in the way between us and the rakyat.

Mawan will not throw punches to give a knockout punch to those aspiring to be candidate for P205 yet as he knows that those behind them have “old scores to settle”and he wants to guide them through when it is time for him to call it a day. GE14 will be a tough battle for the PM Najib and Mawan knows he will not let the PM down and will deliver the seat to BN.

PM Najib will know that Saratok is not an easy seat to contain with and he needs an experienced hand and not someone who is “new plus a greenhorn‘ to stake a claim from the Incumbent Mawan.

PDP can stake the claim but it will regrettably be lost for the party in the long run if Mawan is not given the “CERTIFICATE” to stand as a BN appointed candidate. Afterall, all the 222 candidates for the upcoming GE14 are standing on Barisan Nasional ticket and not on individual party basis.

Mawans parting shot in this interview short of saying,” UNITY AND CONSENSUS” is the way for PDP and he sees himself as the bridge that can be connected back for the greater good of Barisan Nasional.

Unquestionably  President Tiong also knows that Mawan is very LOYAL to BN and he is very much a Certified Winnable candidate for his party and for BN. PM Najib and CM Abang Jo will use their political wisdom to ensure that P205 will stay as a stronghold for BN and they will not need to look further than to stick on with the Incumbent.
