GE13 ” MP Hulu Rajang…A Darkhorse..?? “

GE13 cannot come sooner for those who after months of lobbying will be hoping that their name will be the “chosen one for their party” BN/PRS have three very “capable and winnable” candidates and each of them have their grassroot supporters.

Who will it be amongst them will be known come nomination day.

Wilson Ugak claims that he has the blessing of Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) president Tan Sri James Masing to stand as a Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate in Hulu Rajang in the coming general election.
Billy Abit says he is very much still confident and winnable as the incumbent and will be hoping that his more than “cordial” links with his long term association with the Federal leaders will be enough for him to be renominated.

Liwan Lagang says a source to audie61 must not be ruled out and might justs be the answer BN/PRS holding on to the parliamentary constituency.  A DARKHORSE..??

George Lagong who won as an independant in the lasts state elections in the Pelagus area remains a favourite to join in the fray. A phone call to him today on Ugaks statement he justs said,”Very Good.Let’s wait and see”

PKR and SNAP will be weighing their options and there will be not short of candidates as the parties feel this constituency will be up for grabs as there are many issues in their favour to be addressed.

WHO WILL BE THE WINNER AND CLAIM  P216..??

BN/SPDP “Supreme Council Meeting….Full Turnout..?”

The agenda has been sent out to all members of the Supreme Council of SPDP via fax and registered posts by the Secretary General of the party. There will also be follow up phone calls by the administrative staff of the party a day to the supreme council. This is our normal procedure and it has always been practised by the party says an aide to the President of SPDP.

There is enough quorum for the meeting which is scheduled for 13th of September 2011 at 1 p.m at the party headquarters. Many will be asking what is in the agenda and our source reiterated to us as at audie61,”Usual and its the normal agenda in political meetings. ”

When pressed further he added,”Hopefully all SC members will be available,present in the meeting ,we will be able to deliberate matters for the better good of the party and the BN coalition as a whole. If some are missing we will cross the bridge when we come to it.”

A SPDP member mentioned to us  and said,” they should know the time and the place of the meeting too ” Just remind them its at Badruddin road and show them the picture.

THEY MIGHT NEED TO BE GIVEN DIRECTIONS ...??

Pakatan/BN..”Berhati-Hati PRU13..!~!”

“Unholy conspiracy…”Dirtiest election in Malaysia’s history: These seems to be the words “suggested/uttered/used” by DAP and by MP Tony Pua who is their national publicity secretary to push their political message across.

The article can be read here but we extract this “The rumours have been swirling intensely for the past few months that BN is registering foreign workers and permanent residents as voters for the coming general election… However, it was the reports in Malaysiakini yesterday (that) provide hard evidence that foreign permanent residents have been granted voting rights in Malaysia.

And Malaysians seeking to achieve change in the next general election will have to work triply hard to convince those who are still in doubt over the need for change to overcome the uneven playing field (that is) in favour of BN,” Pua added.

WE WILL SAY ITS UP TO THE PEOPLE and they will vote for their own Members of Parliament.

Whoever works hard,hits the right note with the people will surely be voted in and in any election the bests PR and Propaganda will win the votes. The people are  not STUPID and they will access the situation.

THEY WILL VOTE WHO THEY WANT IN.

TONY SHOULD KNOW..!!

“Stop this Nonsense…!!

Islam is the official religion of Malaysia as enshrined in the Constitution. This is very clear and as a Malaysian citizens we fully subscribed to that. There should not be any questions asked on that and whoever is playing and fanning religious sentiments should be shown and thrown the book. The longer this is brought up and played to the Malaysian gallery it will be very detrimental to uphold the peace,religious and racial harmony.

We as strong believers in our own faith are indeed disturbed and angered and we strongly hope that the ruling government and the administrative powers that exists in the country should come down hard on the overzealous and overreactive reports that has surfaced.

We do not need to overelaborate on this subject as many has jumped on the bandwagon and criticize the enthusiastic over the top reporting. This has got to stop and this report we extract from the internet portal will be sufficient to inform the editors/writers that they have indeed crossed the line. Please get back on track and be more responsible to all Malaysians of all FAITHS.

We also ask Politicians and Political parties from both sides of the divide to use all the POWERS which has been bestowed to you by Malaysians of all races to protect the Country from all these religious bigots and curb all the sowers of hatred on religion and racial issues. This NONSENSE will be more harmful to the country than anyone can perceive.

Archbishop slams ‘irresponsible, baseless, provocative’ reporting

Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur, Murphy Nicholas Pakiam, has slammed reports alleging a conspiracy to turn the country into a Christian state.

endon funeral 201005 murphy pakiamDescribing the reports as “irresponsible, baseless and provocative”, Pakiam demanded that the authorities take action against what it said were quarters that seek to threaten the harmonious, multi-cultural and multi-religious make-up of the country.

A “thorough investigation” into the matter should be made to determine the source of these “insidious, provocative and malicious lies” and take action against those behind it, said Pakiam in a statement.

He was responding to the blog postings, on which an Utusan Malaysiareport was based, accusing DAP of colluding with Christian pastors to make Christianity the country’s official religion so that a Christian can become prime minister.

‘We’ve never been treasonous, hateful’

jeff ooi interview 111208Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi (left) was named in the blog postings as the DAP leader who attended the meeting and joined the prayer session with the pastors, who were reportedly attending a mega-ceramah at the Catholic Christian Centre in Penang on Saturday.

“On behalf of the Catholic Bishops of Malaysia, I would like to categorically refute the allegation that such a meeting had taken place or will take place in a Catholic venue in Penang,

“It is clear that this reporting is baseless and highly irresponsible as the reporters and editors of the above newspaper have not taken any reasonable steps whatsoever to verify the allegations made by anonymous bloggers.

“Furthermore, this report comes after the National Evangelical Christian Fellowship (NECF), one of the organizers of the above meeting, having refuted the claims of those bloggers and the same was carried on online media.

“The NECF has further clarified that this meeting only covered the topic of ethical leadership and had no treasonous agenda as alleged by the bloggers and news report,” said Pakiam.

Pakiam said Christian authorities teach the community to be God-fearing and law-abiding citizens and conscientious decision-makers “based on justice which is reflective of moral and divine laws.”

Even in the Al-Kitab issue over which the Christian Federation of Malaysia has been in dispute with the government, Church leaders had always reiterated their commitment and readiness “to dialogue and work together with the government” and all parties for a just and reasonable solution.

“It is clear that our position has never been treasonous nor have we advocated hatred, antagonism or animosity towards any religion or groups of persons,” said Pakiam.

“I continue to call upon all Catholics, Christians and all Malaysians to pray, dialogue and work together to strengthen national unity and harmony. May God bless our leaders with a firm vision and the courage and strength to uphold and realise it.”

‘Utusan playing with fire’

pas umno pemuda talks parliment 010709 nasrudin hassanLending his voice in support of Pakiam’s remarks, PAS Youth chief Nasrudin Hassan (right) also described the blog and Utusan reports over the alleged conspiracy as “irresponsible” and potentially destabilising.

“Other than potentially threatening the peace, such speculations are seen as a means of seeking cheap political publicity and (part of) continuous efforts to hide weaknesses and failure in protecting the sanctity of the (Islamic) religion,” said Nasrudin in a statement entitled ‘Utusan playing with fire’.

Nasrudin said it is a well-known fact that Islam is enshrined as the official religion of the federation, with Muslims making up the majority in Malaysia’s pluralistic population.

“For these reasons, Islam should not be in a position of being jeopardised and the Muslims would not allow Islam to be threatened,” he added.

If Islam is indeed perceived as getting weaker, said Nasruin, it was because of Umno’s failure to fulfil the mandate with which it had been entrusted to govern the nation, particularly in protecting religious practices and the people’s welfare.

“If Umno had taken care of (the practice of) Islam well and strengthened it, I believe and am convinced that such speculations (by Utusan) of moves to make Christianity the official religion of the nation would not have arisen.

“At the same time, Muslims would feel at peace and comfortable with practising their religion,” he added.

BN “Making it Safe for You….”

BN Making it safe for you….

The manifesto already has it

Rakyat di dahulukan,Pencapaian Di utamakan

  • Place your trust in BN,we will ensure more & better roads throughout Sarawak…
  • Yakinlah dan berikan kepercayaan anda pada BN,kami akan memastikan jalan raya yang lebih baik seluruh Sarawak….
  • Penggaika pengarap kita ba BN,ka,i deka nentuka mayuh agi jalai alun ti manah agi ke serata menua Sarawak!

Under the National Key Results Area initiatives,by the end of 2012 the Barisan Nasional Government will deliver to the people of sarawak….

750 km of additional rural roads.

PKR-DAP “Bang Bang..Lets Shoot ourselves”

The much touted Pakatan alliances are cracking at the seams and this statement which was released doesn’t offer much help either. At least BN are not seen or has a hand of ‘some sort” or “any” involved in Pakatan seats allocation.  

Bang ! Bang ! Chong Chieng Jen Kota Sentosa Assemblyman said  “I think there is a limit to DAP making concessions for the sake of Pakatan. We cannot be reduced to a negligible party…

I think that if there is such a demand, it should be reasonable. We give them an inch, but they want a foot. “As a result of such a demand, the negotiations have broken down,”

This is worse though and its really shooting at each other.”Sarawak PKR had made its position very clear that it had no authority to negotiate seats as the real power lay  with the PKR central committee, which made decisions. ”

According to a PKR source he said the clearer picture should be obtained by those who were at the negotiation table and that being from DAP in Lim Kit Siang,Richard Wong and Chris Tan while PKR were led by Azmin Ali,Zubaidah and Tian Chua.

The official stand from PKR Sarawak from See Chee How Sarawak  Information Chief is that,”The talks have not broken down and the PR Sarawak is not breaking up. There are some finer details to be ironed out still and both parties agree to negotiate further. We will be together and facing the BN.”   

It seems that Chong has pulled the trigger a wee… bit too soon. Could he be eating his own words up when asked during nomination day by the press..?? Wonder what he will say then..This might just help…

Bang..! Bang..! Bang..!

BN to Pakatan “Exchanging Places..??”

These two names Gobalakrishnan ( Padang Serai PKR MP) and Tedcwin Ngumbang (PRS deputy Information Chief) at the bests of times are very useful to their respective coalitions.

They both are at anytime politicians who will kick up a storm to create chaos which will benefit their parties and ensures it stays very relevant. Both are considered too very useful and are straight talkers and has no regrets in opening their mouths to lambast if they see that their CITIZENS RIGHTS are being suppressed.

However due to their characters and personalites many will not take kindly to their ways. It is with deep regret though that their leaders have to remain silent and to let them go to please the majority. Tedewin in an sms said,”I am only a mosquito and leaving PRS will not hamper them. However it a very big sacrifice for me.”

 A PKR sympathiser cheekily said,”Maybe now Gobala can go to Sarawak without much hindrance and meet his adopted Parents in Kapit. Surely leaving PKR opens his doors and the immigration will close an eye to him.”

Both of them leaving PKR and PRS respectively are breaking news and many will capitalise on it. The reports can be seen by clicking here:-

“Fire brewing in Pakatan Sarawak”

Someone,somewhere,somehow must have sold the idea to SNAP that former glory is achievable says a former Emeritus Professor. It was clearly seen that PRS in the Lubok Antu by election used “Sarawak for Sarawakians” which is a strong local propaganda in itself. PKR being a national based party was more or less totality brought to its knees eventhough they had a former 5 term MP as their local candidate.

The propaganda brings in itself a strong attachment and sentimentality that this land Sarawak must only be ruled and taken care by Sarawakians. SNAP through its trials and tribulations is seeking to address a local issue that their dayak leaders in BN component parties are too submissive and have losts their direction in preservation of their land and the ways of governance. This is not a new issue for the dayaks as subconsciously they know that their leaders are promised the highest of the heavens when they are in the BN coalition.

SNAP was in the BN coalition  and they know how the BN operates. Pakatan is not too dissimilar as the coalition too is trying to wrestle power and rule the State in their own way. SNAP knows the local terrain very well unlike their Pakatan partners in PKR,DAP and PAS especially in the dayak majority areas.

They are not only beginning to ruffle a few feathers here and there but ACTUALLY INJECTED A NEW VENOM in the BN circles but also their PKR partner. What they are actually saying,”the battleground is big enough to include SNAP in the picture.”

The 71 seats available must be justifiable allocated and divided fairly amongst the coalition partners or else they will be dissatisfaction in the rank and file. BN has also faced this baptism of fire but through the years the jigsaw has been fine tuned to accomodate each BN component party.

There are different opinions and different school of thoughts and we will not know how the people will welcome back a second coming of SNAP. Fans of Liverpool football club welcome with open arms and fresh enthusiasm for the second coming of King Kenny “Kenny Dalgish an irreplaceble icon and Liverpool favourite son”

Football too has its strategies and SNAP as a political party will need to rechart,reinvent and reenergise its machinery to be acceptable in the Pakatan coalition with its new members some of them were parked in PKR to remain relevant to the Sarawak political climate. 

The Fire will need to be doused before it engulfs further and negotiations within the ranks needs to be stepped up. The earlier the EGOS are thrown out the better it is for the coalition. BN will obviously love to see a breakup in the Pakatan Sarawak coalition as it will see opposition parties at war with each other.

SNAP is in our midst and BN and Pakatan like everyone else in the political playing fields that we must never ever write our enemies off.

TO DO SO WE DO IT AT OUR OWN PERIL.

PKR Candidate “Masuk Air Sekali Lagi..??”

What has happened to PKR candidate for P185 Ansari? He must have stepped on someones shoes and they have put a curse on him. Maybe the third time he should and must just jump into the sea to wash away all the ” EVIL WATER  SPIRITS ”  hik hik hik

Halloween just around the corner ..31st October just remind him

Ansari falls into the sea… again

BATU SAPI, Oct 29 — It was second time unlucky for PKR candidate Ansari Abdullah when he tumbled into seawater after a wooden walkway leading to a Kampung Gas home here gave way.

Ansari, who was on his campaign walkabout in the fishing village, fell several meters into murky seawater just as he was about to step into a villager’s home.

He had been trailing behind Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim who unlike him made it without wetting himself.

Ansari, in his attempt to break his fall, managed to cling on to the wooden platform’s edge before tumbling into the water.

Several other campaign assistants right behind him, followed him into the water. He was later rescued by villagers who used a ladder to help him climb to safety. Ansari, clearly shaken, left the village shortly after the incident for a medical check-up.

“I am fine but it is just for precaution,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

He added that this was proof of the decrepit conditions of Batu Sapi villages.

“Their walk to their home daily is like a walk through a field of land mines,” he said.

Two days ago, Ansari took his first tumble when he was visiting Api-Api island off the coast of Sandakan.

During that incident, Ansari fell after a wooden platform attached to the jetty gave way and collapsed into the sea.
