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 .

apaul

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.

“MENACING OR PASSIONATE” Wilfred Yap


Through the years audie61 have seen this menacing lawyer going through his work full of youthful zest and enthusiasm. Of course, his package doesn’t come across as Mr.Nice plus someone who is “Love to Hate him” but there is a catch,” He gets it done.”

In his first foray into the “elections world” in 2016 he stood on BN/SUPP ticket in the Kota Sentosa Seat against the “mighty” DAP Sarawak Chairman Chong Chieng Jen. The result as many have predicted that he would not stand a chance. The ground talk ,”Sacrificial lamb plus no wants loves him.” Is that so?

Many Kota Sentosa constituents are now regretting it by not putting him in as their “Voice” in the State assembly. Wilfred Yap is very menacing when you are first introduced to him. He is a six footer,walks very fast, his handshakes are firm plus his voice is not EXACTLY SOFT.

Many though would crave for his voice especially those in politics. He would have won a long time ago if he was a “DAP Candidate” during SUPP turbulent years. If he had taken a bite of the DAP’s cherry. Many young leaders left for greener pastures or retire early as they could not take the “losses” to once a strong party. He stood firm with the party and today he has been appointed as ” Public Complaints Bureau Chief” and also a Councillor of Padawan Council.

He has been working or as they say “turun padang” and criss crossing the constituency of Stampin. The President of the party Yb Dr.Professor Sim knows Wilfreds Potential and knows that the “people of Stampin constituency” will take him in as “their Stampin voice and adopted son” in Parliament for GE14.

Wilfred said on his walkabout,”its really a good feeling now that people are coming up to him,shaking his hands,tapping his shoulders and giving him encouragement for the Stampin Parliament Seat.” Previously in his first foray in the State elections he was all “gungho”to fight DAP but there wasnt the genuine warmth and sincerity from the people then unlike now when he is weekly attending to their needs.

The SPCB “Supp Public Complaints Bureau” seat has indeed been a blessing as this service is 24/7 and he is attending to all the needs of the people who ask for help or assistance. The “Hate”syndrome of this young lawyer is finally been tested to the fullest. He is seen daily in the media and in the social media world. There is no escape from the watchful hawks eye and it will very political disaster if he fails to deliver on his words.

His earlier  involvement in an NGO Jaycees International which has “service to humanity is the best work of life” is being realized. The President of the party Yb.Dr.Professor Sim knows that Wilfred will come good and to win over the Constituents he will have to put Wilfred through the “mill” with the most stringent test.

Of course when the road is already been build it will be easy for many in the party to want to be the party’s candidate too. Wilfred sees that “factional infighting or mere sabotaging” on his candidacy will be very incessant. He believes in his party that SUPP that they will make the right choice and will support whatever decision the top leadership makes.

Meanwhile he will continue to serve for the better good of the constituency and will reach out to all Sarawakians whatever race,religion,colour,culture or background.

The opposition will not only hear him now but if he is blessed with the Stampin Candidacy and elected he will not let the people and his party down. He knows too well the feeling of defeat after his first outing and he will not want to let the BN Chairman PM Najib Razak, State Chairman CM Abang Johari,President of SUPP Yb Dr.Professor Sim and his party go through the process of anguish and defeat. This time,he wants to do it more for the people of Stampin Constituency and let them be assured that they put the right man there.

The Stampin Parliamentary seat is a very “winnable seat” for Wilfred as he has his trump cards up his sleeves. The BN Strategic and election support team needs not look further than Wilfred and need to give him their “Fullest Support” to make it a resounding victory for BN and SUPP.

Wilfred was grilled and attacked mercilessly and directly from audie51 team and he felt the full brunt of our force.

We ended with this “if good men look on and do nothing the bad men need no better opportunity.” Wilfred smiled and said ,”He is ready for this next phase of challenge in his life and there are no inbetween.

His Party President, his party comrades plus those who sees his overall potential knows best. He is menacing yet very passionate towards his work for the people.

Wilfred Yap woud be a valuable asset to the incoming Parliament of Malaysia  

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.

 

 

 

 

Najib’s Isosceles Triangle For GE14

Wow! What a Hoo-Hah in the last 24 hours in Malaysian Political climate as we countdown to “GE14′ which is speculated to be held from September to June 2018. Why not earlier? Firstly,Ramadan is coming up (This year Ramadan will start on May 27 and will finish on June 24). Secondly ,SEA Games In Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia ( 19th to 31st August 2017) After that, its the prerogative of the PM to inform the King when he will dissolve his cabinet to pave the way for Malaysia’s 14th General Election.

Why the appointment of Hishammuddin ? In the corridors of power and for the better good ,it was discussed. Najib and Zahid had the final say and they both came to a common ground. Obviously, many other names were thrown in the hat but with Hishammuddin as the next most senior Vice President its only appropriate that he takes this task as Special Functions Minister.

pru14aaudie61 would like to call this the  isosceles triangle which has both sides of equal length. Its going to be the most difficult General Elections for the Prime Minister and he knows that all the BN component parties is under intense pressure. He is taking a leaf from the annals of history.

Najib needs 2 “Proven Field Marshalls” with him by his side and also who the other BN Component Party Generals will feel comfortable to work with.  Zahid and Hishammuddin are both calibre UMNO stalwarts and without question they have both been in the line of fire.

In their quest for the top posts Najib have to put both of them to the test and what better way than to hand over similar plus difficult assignment and tasks ahead of GE14. Historically and Politically, its not unusual for any leader to use this strategy and tactic to weigh the options available to them to choose his successor .

Najib is making use of all the resources he has in hand to ensure a comfortable or marginal victory.

He needs both Zahid and Hishammuddin to be put to their most stringent test. It is essential that this victory be won first. Whatever the outcome after the GE14, it would be up to both of them to win over their own party faithful in the upcoming UMNO General Assembly.

Their ascension to the prized throne will be completed once Najib calls it a day and this appointment would be seen as a catalyst  the date of “Thursday 12th of April 2017.”

The Isosceles is Najib’s Trump card and he will be ready to face the challenges ahead of GE14 with enthusiasm and confidence. The opposition,political analysis and critics will need to eat their words when the GE 14 results are announced.

Najib remembers audie61 as the 5 Rings and after GE14 he will always remind his political foes and friends always turn to and remember “ISOSCELES.”

Ooops “Debunking a Failed Spin”

images50FMM9JPOh No, Ooops I did it Again..

Collaquial terms such as ‘Orang Malaya’ must be understood in the right context.

People with a different frame of reference and the intellectual incapability to appreciate the social framework of such a term ‘Orang Malaya’ have no moral right to condemn me for my post on the “Orang Malaya’ tag.

The vile and baseless accusations is a deep reflection of their low-life mentality, ever ready to lash at their perceived enemies for anything which does not meet their royal agenda.

Having been in the political landscape for decades, I have deep insight as to the goings-on and naturally have immovable patriotic allegiance to my beloved country.

To associate me with Sarawak Report is another indication of the deep jealousy of my detractors, for their juvenile postings have never seen the light of day in mainstream media or top news sites.

My humble suggestion is for those writer/s to attend college and take Malaysia Negaraku 101 to be better acquainted with the nuances of geographical differences in semantics, pertaining to ‘Orang Malaya’.

But then again, for such servile creatures, this post is way above their heads.

Still I write from my heart with a clear conscience knowing I had none of those despicable intentions as maliciously alluded by those delinquent writers.

Regardless, my zest for GE 14 and the next state elections remains undaunted because I love Sarawak, my beloved state and Malaysia, my beloved nation.

No one trying to deride me can take that allegiance and love I have for my beloved country.
