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

HADI “Syok” now “Dispel..?”

When BN Attack! Attack and Attack on how PAS President said sometimes it could be ‘syok’ (a thrill) to be proposed for the PM  post plus also individual calls from the Ulama Wing the PAS President must be considered ,the rebuttal was not too quick nor swift from PAS.

DAP Karpal ,PKR Tian Chua have taken immediate action to protect their man Anwar but PAS only today through their SG Mustafa Ali clarified that it is not the party’s official stance to endorse Abdul Hadi as Pakatan’s next premier.

It’s a little too late as the Ulama’s INTENTIONS have been split open like a sharp knife cutting through watermelons. SPDP President even reminded his fellow dayaks in a local english daily in which we tweeted”SPDP Prexy Mawan reminds Dayaks of Hadi”s remarks of “cawat”(loinclothes) as Ulama Wing of PAS calls for PM seat while Karim Hamzah YB Asajaya and Assistant Minister of Youth was quoted ““Isn’t this the chap who belittles the native of Sarawak as still backward,  still pakai ‘cawat’ or loin clothes and don’t know how to vote?”

Anwar himself knows Hadi will not pass on this chance if and when PAS wins 60 out of the 70 seats they are allocated. This equation on probabilty which we tweeted back “@limkitsiang RT what if PAS wins 60 DAP 35 PKR 28. Still ANWAR meh Kit Siang?

The main tussle might be between Najib V Anwar but PAS will think this is their best chance to be Top “TAIKO” instead of being playing second fiddle all the time to PKR or DAP.

The GE13 will not only see New Alliances and New Probabilites but there will also be a lot of surprises in which many would not even think would have surfaced. Politics we know is nothing short of IMPOSSIBILITY.

NAJIB AND ANWAR knows Hadi is now dispelling it through his SG but the obvious is there for all to say”I TOLD YOU SO…..

PAS “Only Now You Realise…?”

Does it take three (3) Mistakes to Make A Right? Bersih 1.0 to 2.0 to 3.0 PAS Participated but 4.o this comes out from the PAS Youth Murtamar….

“Delegates who spoke against the mooted protest when debating the motion, argued that party resources should be channeled towards facing looming polls rather than organising a mega protest”

January 12th 2013 the 4.0 Bersih, PAS youth unanimously now know that it was not in their bests interests as it will be seen as quoted from the internet portal” if we go ahead with this, people would say all we are capable of is going to the streets.”

So PAS now you know its Ambiga’s Bersih which has propelled her to NEW HEIGHTS and undisputedly a FACE which the authorities sees as person behind the protests on the streets. What’s more PAS should have known Anwar Ibrahim capitalised on this.

PAS who were making grounds and giving UMNO a run for their territory have realised their actions in joining the Bersih movement have in actual fact jeorpadised the party in more ways than one.

Even rebuttals like “But it is not our intent to frighten anyone but to continue our struggle for a clean general election ” was not entertained and unanimously the PAS Youth rejected to participate in 4.0 Bersih.

This report from a internet blog http://www.malaysiandigest.com which we extracted” Why break through the barricade? What would it have achieved? What was the objective of getting into the square?

Bersih 3.0 had already made its point – through the massive turnout. Its co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasen had by then called on everyone to disperse.

So why was there a group of people who still wanted to charge forward?

The reports on what actually happened have not been clear nor conclusive. Some say that PKR Deputy President Azmin incited the crowd to break the barricade. If it’s true, Azmin was behaving stupidly.

Some also say that members of PAS’s Unit Amal were among those who broke through. If it’s true, PAS needs to deal with them severely, because their action would have brought the unit a loss of respect

The party only need to consolidate and not to be UTILISED FOR SOMONE ELSE”S TARGET. Ambiga and Anwar achieved what they set out to do.

PAS A LITTLE TOO LATE AS DAMAGES ALREADY DONE…

“N5 By-Elections in Johor in 60days”

on behalf of audie61 management and crew we would like to express our condolences to the family of the late Tenang assemblyman Sulaiman Taha who was called back to the “Almighty Creator” this morning.

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rests in peace.

With his death, the Election Commission will have to call a by-election – the 14th since the 2008 general election – in 60 days. Umno secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor who was at the hospital told reporters that the Barisan Nasional was prepared to face another by-election

It is expected that the by-election will be held in January next year before Chinese New Year, which will fall on Feb 3.

Tenang is one of two state seats under the Labis parliamentary constituency. The other state seat, Bekok, has been consistently won by MCA’s Tan Kok Hong

Kickdefella “Calon BN N45 Galas..??”

Cindy of audie61 received a call from her former malaysiakini colleague,”Ada dengar tak,Calon BN N45 mungkin blogger. Tahu Siapa..?? Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz ” Kickdefella blog” Ada juga nama2 lain yang di sebut. OK .

The name of Kickdefella  is enough to send reverberations up the spine of PAS as lately his posting has been very critical of PAS. He was once a a close associate of Kelantan PAS Deputy Commissioner II Husam Musa – had a much-publicised fallout with PAS last year. There are also other names which have been mentioned.

The lists of potential candidates and names started cropping up when it was reported that MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah who himself was expected to be fielded as the BN candidate, he, as the BN and Umno election director, was believed to be inclined to choose another candidate.

Thus besides Kickdefella the others in the running are Gua Musang Umno secretary Abdul Aziz Yusof Gua Musang Umno Youth vice-chief Zamzani Harun Gua Musang Wanita and Youth wings Wan Hazani Mohd Nor and Bazlan Baharuddin.

It will be interesting to see whether UMNO will choose a Blogger to represent them instead of practising from the traditional and normal political platform. 

WILL THEY JUST DO IT THIS TIME AT N45..???

“Configuration of The New Sarawak Party”

We Tweeted earlier and BROKE NEWS:- Rumoured New Political Party in Sarawak launching on 7th of July. Elections soon more parties mushrooming.. 5:19 AM Jul 5th.

Mushrooming..?? Disgruntled..?? Open revolt..??

There are so many ways to read the whole political set up of the new party which will be launched on Saturday at the Grand Continental Hotel in Kuching at 9.30am. In 1987 there was the Maju group made up of Permas/PBDS which openly fought a bitter elections against the BN coalition.

 Seems that PERS is the new name for the new political group and the acronym has significance in that stands for Parti Ekonomi Rakyat Sarawak Bersatu.Moreover PERS says it is willing to talk to PR parties to forge an alliance.

Our  insider source called a  PBB Supreme Council member and an assemblyman when news filtered through and he said,”They are somewhat disgruntled and they are openly revolting and but this is their democratic right. This usually happens as elections are around the corner and these parties which mushrooms will die a natural death when they are severely trounced.”

He was non committal though on the PERS Protem Secretarys readiness in contesting in the 71 constituencies in Sarawak. The ultimate reason given by PERS is that they formed this party to fight for the Economic rights of the sarawakians and also to fight for those who have had their land taken away.

A Pakatan Spokesman said to audie61 when asked on the yet to be registered PERS party forging an alliance,” The platform is already there for them to join either SNAP,PKR,PAS and DAP. We do not need to complicate matters when we are facing a common enemy in BN. The battle royale will be between BN4 and Pakatan4. Joining forces and using the resources available and togetherness we will achieve more.”

No doubt we are open for talks and if need be we are willing to listen, hear and discuss it at the ROUNDTABLE  in front of all our other partners in Pakatan. Until such time we will just monitor their movements. 

A veteran political watcher said that it is ‘looking very murky and gloom for the mosts political parties in Sarawak and it will get darker with more courageous people heading for the battlefield.”

WHO SHALL WE PICK UP…??

“71 Seats Status Quo..??”

The question on everyones lips is how will the Sarawak Pakatan group comprising of PKR,DAP.SNAP and PAS divide the seats allocation. Its appears the State BN according to BN political strategists will be using the same “Status Quo” breakdown of seats to the 4 coalition partners. PBB will be allocated the 35 seats SUPP 19 PRS 9 and SPDP 8. No matter how SPDP or PRS feels that they are entitle for more seats (based on their track records) as SUPP has losts terribly in the 2006 state elections it will not be entertained. 

PBB will have its Triennal delegates Conference on the 28th Feb-2nd March at the newly completed Borneo Convention Centre and after that its PRS TDC in Bintulu in May. Once these two parties have completed their respective general assemblies all eyes will be focussed on the Chief Minister as he alone will determine when it is the right time for a FRESH MANDATE from the people of Sarawak.

Unlike previous elections where there was much political calm,electorate generally demonstrated confidence and optimism in the leadership and policies of the incumbent BN government. BN has the proven track records but now the groundswell is different as the Pakatan group which made inroads in the 308 General elections are better prepared to assist their Sarawak counterparts.

The niggling and obvious question for the Pakatan group would be the breakdown of seats for the opposition front. DAP has obviously sounded their bugle charge with placing interests in the urban constituencies plus two or three semi urban/rural areas. Even newly elected DAP Chairman Sarawak Wong Ho Leng has indicated no less than 20 seats given that they have 6 State assemblyman in the DUN.

The State BN needs to be reassured that its coalition partner SUPPs politiking internally must end or else the Chinese urban electorate will surely turn to DAP. Too much infighting will also determine how the party will fare in this coming State elections and with a new kid on the block PCM(Party Cinta Malaysia) playing spoilers with intentions of contesting 30 seats the electorate will certainly be given a CHOICE. But the obvious contests will be between BN and Pakatan while PCM candidates will just split the votes. PCM has already indicated that they are more relevant than PKR.

Eventhough the mandate CLOCK is ticking ,BN knows that it needs to be prepared for a full-scale electoral offensive,backed by a well organised election machineryand superior resources.It should be unmatched by the opposition and surely the electoral battles in each constituency will be fought entirely on issues which will be localised in nature. The string or supermaket lists of issues which will be brought up by the opposition will not reflect much as compared to the bread and butter issues facing the people in the constituencies. 

The BN will obviously pick the right time according to a school of thought where all goodies will be showered down to the people of Sarawak and leave it with no choice but to return the mandate to BN. But will the political landscape which has embedded in eversince 308 prove us all wrong according  a veteran politician..?

Who would have thought Sammy Vellu,Kho Tsu Koon was defeated badly and Gerakan almost wiped out together with MIC. Will the Sarawak electorate move away from their comfort zone and change all that.? We still have our reservations….

It is without a doubt says a number of political observers that  the element of  FEAR remains for the Sarawak BN. The same sentiments plus other newer issues especially the “Allah” controversy if  left unchecked,unaddressed and not properly resolved  may have a snowballing effect especially with the percentage of 47% Christians in Sarawak.

Its a highly sensitive issue and as such Najib as Prime Minister needs to thread this line very carefully as statistics of past elections will not even be able to help the BN if the electorate in Sarawak so decides otherwise. Its a very thin line for the Federal government as any false move will no doubt be a major factor or bearing in the ballot boxes in the next Sarawak elections.

The consensus for the continuity of the Status quo in seat allocations will be a telling factor for the State BN. If there are all unison in seeing a fresh mandate for the BN and the leadership of Taib and a test of whether the electorate still believes in this equilibrium. The Sarawak electorate has so far passed their political education easily for the past 50 years and it is up to the opposition to ratlle the status quo.

The State BN parties will not need to look further than the wise remarks of Chinese Philosopher Sun Tzu(The art of war)in that it said,” it would be better to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy’s not coming,but on our readiness to receive him: not on the chance of his not attacking,but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable.”

So is the BN ready?The status quo of the coalition partners in PBB ,SUPP,PRS and SPDP will remain and there are no reasons to uproot the tree which has steadily proven that it has kept its promises to the electorates. Only if and when the Pakatan group can move the  comfort zones of the electorates in Sarawak it is without a shadow of a doubt that BN will still call the shots. Sort out your seats fast Pakatan Sarawak or you will return as fast to the abyss with the same bullet train.  

DID THE STATUS QUO TICKLE YOUR MIND AND GOT YOU THINKING….???
