PAS Hadi “Fighting for Political Survival”

Oh No, PAS President is at it again. What will happen to PAS in GE14 is anyone’s guess.acawat1

It does seem that he is at his best when his back is at the wall as he makes this political statement to try to coax Barisan Nasional leaders to accept him and the party into the BN fold.

Will Sarawak leaders accept him and the party with open arms? He has yet to make amends on his “CAWAT” INSINUATION way back in 2009.

Even MP Salang and PRS Secretary General said this,””He pointed out that Sarawakian   MPs objected to the bill because it is an opposition bill tabled by Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, who has few fans in the state.

“During the Batang Ai by-election in 2009, he said we were still wearing cawat. Later, he accused Christians of converting Muslims. Things like that do not speak well of him as a person and a leader. So when he tabled a bill like this, how can I be certain that he meant well?” said Salang.

This is extracted from Rakan Best Nye Page: “Apologise first PAS President Hadi. We in Sarawak always live in peace,harmony, eat,shop, no segregation and enjoy together. 

We dont want PAS in Sarawak.
Don’t try to say this for your convenience. “PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang says Malaysians can learn from Sabah and Sarawak, where the two states’ diverse peoples have lived in harmony for so long.”

Is Hadi making the right calls or is he trying to get back the sympathy from the opposition front ,making PAS relevant while backstabbing the Barisan Nasional Coalition at the last minute?He has something up his sleeves and political parties within the BN are watching closely with hawks eye and waiting to  pounce.

BN Sarawak can do without PAS assistance as it goes to win the seats in Sarawak for GE14

P205 Saratok”One More Term”for Mawan

Ali Biju of  Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR )is waiting in the wings to wrestle this seat away from the noses of BN/SPDP.  In 2013 GE13 William Mawan won this seat and secured 11,600 votes against Ali’s 9,519 votes to score a majority of 2,081 votes.

pmawanEaster has come and gone and very soon it will be Ramadan,Hari Raya and the impending GE14. Najib as the ruling Prime Minister and the Barisan Nasional Commander in Chief is counting the seats and preserving all his winnable candidates to cross the line at 111 out of 222 Parliamentary seats.  Mawan is very much his best bet to have 1 in the bag for Barisan Nasional. He knows that Mawan journey still continues and he is very much a loyal and reliable Barisan member be it in the State or in the Federal level.

Najib always have this in his mind,”Think daily,deeply, and in a disciplined way about strategy, for on that alone is your throne of power preserved and strengthened.  Najib also take notes of  what Mawan has openly said,”there is no alternative to unity. Unity has always been the hallmark of my political crusade since i entered politics more than four decades and it is the foundational nucleus on which politics is premised.”

SPDP President Tiong King Sing is very much a ‘buddy and best friend” to William Mawan. Both of them have gone through many rivers,hills and mountains together since 2002 when the party was founded. Tiong himself will want his Political Elder William Mawan by his side as he sees through the storm of GE14 and win all the 4 seats the party contest. Tiong knows that its no point to have war-mongering factions in this battle and as the President he will need to master the strategy to deliver to Najib the BN commander the 4 seats which the party is assigned to.

All things in nature have an inherent cycle of spring,summer,winter birth,growth,maturity,decline and death. Political differences or war has also a cycle of psychological stages,the wait,preparation,clashes,regret and remorse. Politics is the art of agreement not disagreement and Mawan himself knows that very well.

He hears all the right noises coming from top hierarchy of the ruling party on his experience and patience in dealing with situations. He says to audie61 in this interview,”Don’t Package me out. My experience will be invaluable to the party and to the person who will eventually take over as MP Saratok from SPDP.” He says he needs one more term to ‘tidy it up” for the unity of all younger members who will be eventually join up in SPDP. He says there are many new members who are waiting for his next move and they will not need to wait too long to move to the HOME in SPDP.

There will be differences and distrusts for the new members but eventually political maturity will take the centre stage. With all the upheavels SPDP will come out stronger and more united to face any adversaries.

audie61 remembers a local journalist writing in 2013 on the battle of Saratok,”The fight for the seat will always be remembered as a race between BN and PKR, so fierce and so close till the finishing line. Those with faint hearts probably may not want to experience such excitement again”

Mawan ended the interview with the phrase “Unity” again pointing to the opposition on playing up the issue on Appointment of Hishammuddin as Special Functions Minister. He said even Zahid has consented to the appointment and this is roller coastered into an issue. Mawan said,” Najib is strengthening Barisan Nasional  and with this appointment it will make us stronger. It’s UNITY .”

Saratok P205 is ripe for Ali Biju to wrestle away from BN/SPDP.  Najib being the BN commander knows that President Tiong and Mawan will sit down together soon to sort it out and Look at the BIGGER PICTURE.

One More Term” is the call for Mawan and Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s( PKR) Ali Biju’s dream of being an MP after GE14 will also disappear into the clouds.

 

 

 

 

Shafie Apdal…WHY.??

ashafieIts very unusual for someone like audie61 to write about our Neighbours Sabah’s intention of changing their ruling State Government. We do understand that politics do take a lot of different forms like water to reach its intended end.

However as the above picture shows we do take it seriously when  Parti Warisan Sabah president says ,”“Unlike voters in Sarawak where BN has inculcated fear in them, Sabahans are risk-takers. They are saying: ‘Don’t take us for granted’.

The full text of the interview can be found here  http://www.malaysia-chronicle.com/sabah-will-fall-shafie-promises-najib-i-know-you-you-dont-dare-take-risks/

Seriously, Mr.President when did BN inculcate fear in the voters during the 11th Sarawak State Election wherby the late Adenan Satem was the Chief Minister. The late Chief Minister went to the areas where the opposition was strong and used his wit,charm and charisma to sway the voters to vote for Barisan Nasional. Did he use his iron fist and harsh words? No,No,No.

We followed him in his campaign trail throughout and we are very pleased that he was very much loved by the people and he served BN with commitment,responsibilty and we are very proud of him.

Today we have a Chief Minister in Abang Jo who is following the late Adenan’s footsteps in getting down to the people and serving their needs. Tell us Shafie Apdal,” Will Abang Jo also inculcate fear to the voters? He is afterall Sarawak State Barisan Nasional leader.

If you want to topple the BN Sabah Government please dont use Sarawak Voters as scape goats or trying to paint a bad picture of Sarawakians. We have weighed our options well and we will not throw away our stability,peace and harmonious living for the sake of disunity and uncertainty.

Our Sarawak State Government is a proven identity and you might learn a thing or two politically from us.

 Henceforth Mr. President of Warisan ,SARAWAK VOTERS WILL NOT BE  DRIVEN BY FEAR NOR INTIMIDATION.

BN Sarawak To lose “Fixed Deposit..?”

Extracted from Malaysiakini…

BN may lose Sarawak as its ‘fixed deposit’ in the coming state election if internal problems within Sarawak BN are not settled within the next 12 months, warned Parti Rakyat Sarawak president James Masing.

“The problems within SUPP and SPDP still persist and unless leaders within BN are willing to take the bull by the horns, the instability within Sarawak BN will create unnecessary headaches for the chief minister,” he said during the PRS 10th anniversary dinner in Kuching last night.

“It was most unfortunate and rather unnecessary that a new political party called Teras (Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak) was used by some disgruntled State Assemblymen just as Adenan Satem (Chief Minister of Sarawak) assumed the mantle of leadership.

“In fact, it was done as if orchestrated, on the very day Adenan (left) delivered his first winding up speech as the chief minister of Sarawak,” he added.

Masing, who is a senior minister and minister of land development, made it clear that PRS did not agree in the manner and the timing by which Teras was formed.

“And I assume that SUPP, SPDP and maybe some elements within PBB, also do not agree because it destabilises the newly appointed chief minister.

“Solutions to solve problems within SPDP and SUPP could have been handled in a manner which would have allowed the new chief minister time to adjust to his new position.

“It would have given him time to read the political landscape of Sarawak and then suggest the correct solutions,” he said.

“In trying to think of possible solutions, I recalled what Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said in his speech at the SUPP 23rd Delegates Conference in Kuching.

This is what he said: ‘You have gone through hell; I want you to come back stronger and ready to fight for BN. I believe in politics of principles’.

“The prime minister believed in politics of principles, and so does PRS. I also believe that the other BN component parties namely PBB, SUPP and SPDP also believe in this,” he said, pointing out that there are rules in BN which had over the years, bound the spirit of comradeship among BN component parties.

He added one of the rules, is that ‘admission to BN must be 100 percent consensus’.

“What this means is that if one party in BN objects, admission into BN family is impossible. This is the principle which Najib was talking about.

“I cannot see how UPP (United People’s Party) and Teras can get admitted to BN if we follow these principles.

“If admission of these two parties to BN is not possible, then another set of principles must apply in order to solve the current problem in Sarawak – that is principle of personal integrity.

“Among other things, All YBs concerned must look back to where they started and how did they got to where they are now,” he said.

‘Unity is strength’

Also saying unity is strength, Masing asserted that the four parties (PBB, PRS, SPDP and SUPP) must stand together.

“In order to win the 2016 state election, we must abide by BN rules. Thus this code of conduct among BN followers: you touch one you touch all’ must be practised with dedication and sincerity,” he added.

Masing said UPP which was formed by expelled SUPP leaders and Teras by expelled SPDP leaders, had been telling their supporters and members of the public that they are ‘already in BN’ by virtue of the fact that some of their leaders are in the state cabinet.

UPP is claiming 19 seats that SUPP is going to contest, while Teras is claiming eight seats which are allocated to SPDP.

“I believe all heads of BN component parties in Malaysia and in Sarawak think alike, sharing the same objectives, speaking from same page, sleep on the same bed and dream the same dreams,” he added.

“Unless we are humble enough to trim our egos, lean on and learn from each other, the 2016 state election and 2018 federal election will be worse – urban seats will go.

“The egos which have kept us apart will be dumped in the urban rubbish bins; we will be left with nothing but bruised pride. We will not be the administrators of this state,” he warned.
