“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.

“Anang Belaya….”

Many Congratulations to Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) on your name and logo change. We hope all is well within the party.We sincerely meant well with the felicitations to all of you in BN/PDP.

amawan2118.jpgHowever,we were very much taken aback together with many of Mawans staunchest BN supporters when these words were uttered,” “sama ada saya menunggu dia atau dia menuggu saya( untuk permohonan sebagai ahli),kalau benar-benar berminat..pohonlah.
Borang ada disana (ibu pejabat PDP) 

To put it very mildly, it was very ‘unnecessary‘ on the Presidents part. It’s creating an avenue for bad blood to be spilled within the ranks of both camps of supporters. It would have been more appropriate if he could have mention to the press media “Maybe I ask Captain Zai to come and collect on his behalf” (hehe)

That’s not his character we know as compared to Mawan who has always have a way with words even in the most testing of times and he will not let ’emotions’ get the better of all his political decisions. We say “Respek Sikit Tiong,Sik Bo Cam Ya,”

The matter of Mawan to be in PDP ‘new member’ does not arise in this situation to be chosen as a candidate. He was a former President of SPDP where he helmed for 10 years. He has left SPDP but he has stayed very loyal as a TRUE BLUE BARISAN MAN and has never wavered from the stance.

Rest assured we know, it is within the PDP democratic right to choose a candidate of their choice to represent the party in the forthcoming GE14 for P205. One can loudly claim that the ‘seat’ belongs to the party but one must not take out the fact that its the BN hierarchy that decides the winnable,loyal and can deliver the seat to BN.

In this Saratok seat one must be reminded that Mawan is still the sitting and incumbent BN MP.  PDP can lay claim to the seat and wanting the “quota” but one must take note that the BN Hierarchy is not about to give this seat “Saratok” away on a platter to the opposition.

Mawan has kept the BN “fortress” intact and has been very people-centric and for the opposition to penetrate and capture Saratok it only needs to dislodge Mawan from being named the BN candidate. The mountain would have being removed and it would be plain sailing against an untested potential PDP candidate.

One can argue that the so called “potential” is the rightful choice of the party but BN knows the implications of losing this “rural parliamentary seat” The state seat of Krian is an opposition PKR stronghold and BN knows that only too well.

PM Najib and DPM Zahid have echoed their wants to all political leaders and parties and the call must not be taken lightly. “its not business as usual unlike the previous elections for BN and selfish agendas must be left aside for the greater good.

Will BN chance it and give it to an untested potential candidate and lose the seat?

It certainly would not look good too on the CM on his maiden election outing. CM is in the know that Mawan has worked the ground tirelessly and is very well accepted by the people of Saratok.

The 2 BN ADUNS have worked closely together with Mawan and they are very comfortable and supportive towards him.

https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/10/05/the-winning-components-saratok-parliament/

PM himself was at Mawans first foray in Saratok when “all odds” were against Mawan.
Mawan delivered and is still carrying the BN flag serving the constituency well and PM will take all these into consideration. PM himself was on the ground morally and politically supporting Mawan to ensure that he pulls through in 2013.

“Saratok was deemed a BLACK AREA FOR BN and PKR knows very well and sees there were many sympathisers and dissatisfaction in the ranks of BN. PKR knows a GIANT KILLING ACT is very likely as were too many turncoats and desirable elements hampering Mawans quests for the seat and who also wanted to finish Mawan politically for good.”

The above was in 2013. Today, BN in Saratok is more than comfortable as they have made up much grounds in delivering to the people with Mawan at the helm. Mawan is very much the BN Incumbent and until the dissolution for the next GE14 he carries the BN Flag on his shoulders.

There are many factors in play in the “crucial”seats and BN HIERARCHY will obviously not leave everything to chance by disregarding Mawan’s contributions as a Parliamentarian.

It is understood that PDP is doing all these to raise the morale of party supporters. The feel good factor and big hoo-haa at the party level does not necessarily equal to winning the confidence of the people and the voters.

The party need to be realistic and listen to the ground and feel the pulse of the people.It is not wrong for any political party to stake claims on seats or quota. 

Ultimately the decision will be from the Prime Minister and Chief Minister of the State who will above all make sure BN wins all the seats they contest.

In Hindsight, “One must be respectful in their words and with wisdom one can only move forward to change for the benefit of the people”

There is still a chance as always in Reconciliation and BN hierarchy will find a COMMON GROUND for all parties concerned as they head into GE14.

Didn’t we say “Good Friends are Hard to find, Harder to leave and IMPOSSIBLE to forget” …Anang Belaya

“People’s Choice”

apeoplesTick Tock! Tick Tock! The clock is indeed ticking down fast as Malaysia awaits for the GE14. There are many aspirants to the coveted seat and to be chosen as a candidate. It is no different for the BN candidacy of Saratok Parliament.

Has the 3 aspiring lobbyists done enough to win the peoples hearts,soul and minds?

There are some unpleasant reports from the ground that they are ‘not very much the flavour of the month when they try to make inroads into longhouses for their activities. This certainly is a very big blow to them and it does not auger well for PDP for giving them the democratic rights to ‘test the ground to unseat a BN incumbent for Saratok.

The lobbyists are obviously at each others throats trying to outdo each other but forgetting that the people are the ones who are watching their actions. Their movements and activities carried out are haphazardly planned and strategised which will only benefit the opposition.

One cannot point the finger to the Incumbent MP for their failures and rejection by the people in the constituency. He has clearly said this,’It is not our divine right for us to divulge in details and morover it is also within their ‘democratic rights” to continue but they do need to know when they hit a road block.

Hmmm.”Isn’t it strange that the people have not given them a chance?

Its very awkward for BN as a whole. There seems to be no ‘convergence of thoughts” between them and the people see’s clearly that they are fighting not only an uphill battle but also rolling dices to try to convince the party PDP that they are strong favourites.

Will the people buy this? They also seem so ‘BLURRED OUT” in their target.

Even in their movements they have not ‘uttered anything significantly “bad against” or shown any malice to the opposition. One have to only check with the various organisations/authorities that have covered their ‘democratic lobbying movements

They do however seem to be more interested in “barking at the  incumbent” who is a Barisan Man and in Saratok the BN MP is holding the flag for the Barisan Nasional coalition.

That says it all doesn’t it?

Has Mawan’s activities and reaching out to the people blurred their vision? Mawan’s position is unassailable as his main aim is clearly defined to ensure that P205 remains a BN stronghold. The peoples interest and their needs are his main priorities and he trusts the people who put him there in the first place.apeop1.jpg

Mawan have reached out to to every sector of society in the Saratok constituency be it  masjid,temple,churches ,various women, youth organisations and also to schools plus other establishments. He has toiled and laboured hard which would mean he has ‘put in the shift” That doesn’t come by accident and the 3 lobbyists are playing’catch up”

He truly puts his all for the people and he knows that the people are watching him and they too want Saratok to develop further with him at the helm.

Are there any other reasons to even contemplating of ‘elbowing the BN incumbent out?”

Mawan who subscribes to Sun Tzu knows that very well,”Foreknowledge must be obtained from men who know the enemy situation” He has outreached to the Saratok constituents for the last 5 years and he makes it his point to be there in person when activities are being organised by the people unless otherwise.

BN hierarchy know its crucial that the people remain with the incumbent and they will not rock the boat unnecessary for selfish and personal agendas.

Mawan has significantly paved the way for BN on a steady ‘PLATEAU”.

BN will want to keep it that way instead of having to scale a mountain of sharp edged rocks to win over the people of Saratok.

The people have put their trusts to Mawan as their Parliamentarian and he has delivered in his first term. It is not easy to win the hearts and minds of Saratok constituents and Mawan knows that.

He will do all he can to SUSTAIN THE TRUST that the people have in him and in the ruling BN coalition.

 

 

 

Santubong MP 193 Mendapat Sokongan

Sarawakians at large are very proud of our Minister of Natural Resources and Environment (NRE) and MP Santubong. He has indeed fulfilled all the criteria to be renominated for another term in office. Those who know him well knows that he doesn’t mince his works and is a ‘doer
MP193In all his appointments in any department in the Federal cabinet be it previously as deputy speaker,deputy home minister and now Natural resources Minister he has performed above expectations.
One not only see him in the social media space but also see him literally on the ground visiting and listening to his constituents in Santubong Parliamentary constituency. Even his officers and party colleagues have to play ‘catch up” with him when he is on the ground and he moves like a man on a mission reaching out to everyone.
He has the charisma, a very loyal party man, hardworking and a very able professional Minister in the Federal cabinet.
It is without a doubt that many constituents in  P193 Santubong would want him to serve another term and to the ruling coalition Barisan Nasional he is indeed a very “Winnable Candidate”and will deliver the seat to them.

Let the people of P193 continue to benefit from the exemplary MP Junaidi and a man who ‘walks his talk” to everyone and delivers without much fanfare.

Below are Excerpts directly from Sarawakiana.net
Penyandang Parlimen Santubong, Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar mendapat sokongan untuk terus dicalonkan pada Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-14 (PRU14) mewakili Barisan Nasional (BN).
Terbaru, sayap wanita Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) di bawah Parlimen Santubong yang menyatakan sokongan untuk melihat Wan Junaidi sekali lagi mewakili kawasan tersebut.
Memetik laporan The Borneo Post, Ketua Wanita PBB Tanjong Datu, Fatimah Abdullah berkata, mesyuarat tertutup yang dijalankan sebelum ini membuat keputusan untuk menyokong Wan Junaidi mewakli BN.
“Banyak geran dan kerja keras beliau diterjemahkan dengan keputusan cemerlang di Santubong, dan menjadi permintaan kami untuk melihat kepimpinan BN terus menurunkan beliau pada pilihan raya umum akan datang,” katanya.
Ketua Wanita PBB Pantai Damai, Jamaiyah Sulaiman turut senada dengan Fatimah sambil menyifatkan kepimpinan Wan Junaidi masih diperlukan di Santubong.
“Penduduk Santubong masih memerlukan perkhidmatan beliau dan kita mahu melihat beliau mempertahankan Santubong sekali lagi,” ujarnya.
Sementara itu, Setiausa Politik Wan Junaidi, Datuk Seri Wan Hamzah Wan Paie berkata, bukan sahaja sayap wanita PBB mahukan Wan Junaidi bertanding tetapi setiap ahli parti.
“Saya bertugas sebagai setiausaha beliau dan melihat kerja keras beliau berkhidmat kepada rakyat. Semangat beliau berkhidmat lebih hebat berbanding generasi muda.
“Bagi saya, Wan Junaidi tidak berdepan isu untuk mempertahankan Santubong pada Pilihan Raya Umum akan datang,” jelasnya.-Sarawakiana

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.

 

 

Sympathiser for PKR for BN P205 Saratok?

subengLet’s not be mean ,”wolf in sheep’s skin?”. However in this day and age politics is such that one have to be judgemental and ensure that the worthy candidate fits the bill to stand as a candidate. Our sources have informed us that there were once closely associated with and have close ties with PKR the opposition camp in Saratok.

Do we need to be robot scientist to work out this out?

Surely, PDP hierarchy must have checked the background of all 3 lobbyists to be a candidate for Barisan Nasional ? A senior PDP even have to answer to a netcitizen claim which in itself does hold some political truth on the matter.  http://www.theborneopost.com/2017/07/12/igai-denies-saratok-aspirants-members-of-opposition-party/

On another note an Emeritus Professor said,”As a political party PDP seems to be “Deliberately Blinded” to create some political inconvenience so as to ensure that the seat belongs to PDP and not to other coalition partners or individuals.

The MP Incumbent is a former President of SPDP and he is still very much a BN Member of Parliament. He remains true to the concept of BN and has never wavered from his stand which the PM and DPM acknowledges as plus points for a candidade for BN in GE14.

Mawan himself  is consistent with his desire to step down at the end of the next parliamentary term. He even said that he as not interested in any position in the party he once led.

Do we need to polish it up more and add pepper plus other spices to it?

Meanwhile the President of PDP Tiong King Sing knows too well that he has a trump card if the need arises. Has he been playing with fire? Ali Biju PKR Assemblyman for Krian is so entrenched in the state seat and he will not have any hesitation to face off with anyone besides the Incumbent. This is extracted from Ali Biju’s twitter,“Official Twitter account for Ali Biju, PKR assemblyman for N.34 Krian and currently running for Parliament P.205 Saratok”

Let’s not deliberate further and its a known fact that there are many selfish individuals within PDP and President Tiong himself must stop this nonsensical lobbying for the sympathisers of PKR to have an upperhand in P205 for GE14.

The 4 Incumbents MP s in Tiong,Mawan,Anyi,Nogeh are all very winnable for BN. Mawan himself knows that its going to be a tough outing for BN in GE14 and has always practised the Principle of No.1 Party is BN System of Governance and N0.2 would be the party that he is in.

He does not hide behind the sheep skin and he has always put BN’s interest above self and he would not tarnish the image of BN in whatever manner. He has Saratok’s continuity in his heart and he plans to see it out till the end of the term for GE14.

Subeng with his 32 years of experience in corporate administration and management should wait for his chance to prove to the BN leadership and stay as an intern to Mawan and ready for GE15. The experience and youthful partnership which Mawan and Tiong has will benefit BN in totality and if Subeng Mula is willing to wait for the chance he will stand to handsomely impart from the tutelage of the incumbent MP with his years of experience.

Tiong would be seen as an outstanding President in the eyes of the Barisan leadership in the State and in Federal. He must be seen to have uncovered an unpolished diamond.  Mawan would also be instrumental to bring together the rival factions for the benefit of the constituency of Saratok.

Krian was lost to PKR and the defeated BN candidates of Peter Nyarok in 2011 and Kilat Beriak in 2016 was due to disunity in its rank and file. This was even highlighted by the local daily,”The reason Barisan Nasional (BN) lost in the Krian constituency in the previous two state elections was disunity within the ruling coalition which led to sabotage from among its own rank and not because it failed to deliver its promises as claimed by the opposition.”

One in the end has to prove his worth to BN and Subeng Mula knows very well that the BN leadership on this occasion of GE14 would only pick the winnable and loyal candidate. He stands a very good chance to be an MP after Mawan calls it a day in GE15 and only have to put up a BRAVE FACE and let BN find a ‘common ground” to win this seat instead of handing the seat on a platter to the opposition in PKR.

The wolf in sheep skin tag would be wiped clean of the slate if Subeng knows that politics is not only for today but its an ongoing process. Experience and wisdom is a forte in politics and Mawan would be most willing to share one of his favourite quote,”No leader should put troops into the field merely to gratify his own spleen; no leader should fight a battle simply out of pique. But a kingdom that has once been destroyed can never come again into being; nor can the dead ever be brought back to life. Hence the enlightened leader is heedful, and the good leader full of caution.
– Sun Tzu

BN Top Leadership would be very cautious and the winnable seats would not be sacrificed for any party or any individuals selfish needs.

SUPP all Set to “Wrestle P196 Stampin” from DAP in GE14

19990596_1561099923942532_6405914575135937879_nThe impossible seems now more probable as Minister in Prime Minister’s Deparment Nancy Shukri has found the “formula”

She will not be disclosing it publicly of course but apparently it has already send ‘some shivers‘ down the spine of DAP Leader and now only Sarawakian in Pakatan Harapan Vice President Chong Chieng Jen. Talks within DAP circles there is already a probability that a new face is to replace the incumbent DAP. What is the reason? Nancy would not have just made this statement if she has not been briefed in detail.

It does seem though, that with Batu Kawah and Batu Kitang already in the bag for BN after the winning in the last State Elections attention is now focussed on STAMPIN PARLIAMENTARY SEAT.

From 1999 to 2013 it was a seat for BN/SUPP  Yong Khoon Seng who won by majority of 8897 ( in 1999) 7731  ( in 2004 ) 3070 ( in 2008 ) and losts it to DAP  Julian Tan Kok Ping by 18670

The SUPP candidate hopefuls have been working the ground and with the President of SUPP and the Padawan Council Chairman as Assemblyman in Batu Kawah and Batu Kitang respectively there is much enthusiasm and in reality wrestling this seat back from DAP is within reach.

WHO WILL BE THE LIKELIEST BN/SUPP candidate? Surely, the Barisan Nasional leaders will scrutinise all potential candidates in order to regain back P196 STAMPIN.
