“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.

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

MP205 “Moderation and Solidarity through Golf”

tsmawan 18Its not only politics that drives Tan Sri William Mawan. He does know how to hit,swing and drive the golf balls to the required distance and thereby also sending the correct signals to his worthy opponents. He explores every angle for the people to come together as one.

In his vocabulary and outlook there are no malice in his intonation but mostly he has outreached to the Larger Mass of Sarawakians by preaching moderation and doing away with extremism,bigotry,fanaticism and militant thinking in whatever forms.

To quote him which he said on 4th November 2014,”Moderation is the only way that can guarantee our continued solidarity and well-being as a multi racial society.Extremism begets extremism and the unscrupulous  who engage in bigotry are playing dangerously with fire and discarding racial hormony”

We will not compromise on our commitment to racial and religious harmony and ours is a united platform that draws strength and support from all ethnic groups in Sarawak.

His involvement in the Inter Community Golf tournament goes way back 9 years and he has continued to “WALK THE TALK“. Within the teams that are participating there are malays,ibans bidayuhs,melanaus,chinese,orang ulus all joining in. This goes to show that the National Integration is very much alive which has dampen and unscrewed the evil works of those who try to practise SEGREGATION and also to confuse everyone with their ill intentions.

amawan18aIn his Saratok constituency he is encouraging the youths to participate in various activities like the 9 aside football tournament. Mawan as former Minister of Social Development Sarawak has been very instrumental in bridging the harmony and solidarity through all programmes and sports activities.

The present Minister and Mawans able assistant Abdul Karim Hamzah is now carrying out his good work by also encouraging many different cultural programmes to continue the good work laid out .

The recent “heat” on the event ‘Octoberfest” was also given a positive response by the Minister which Mawan himself should pat his own shoulder. Karim was also quoted,”“Down here (Sarawak), it has always been promoted as Oktoberfest. They don’t promote it as a beer festival. If it is Oktoberfest, I don’t see any problem with it because it is a celebration of culture. That is why when some extremists or some people claim this is a beer festival, I don’t really agree.

Mawan himself said this ,”while politics can be highly charged the attainment of political goal can be through also the golf swing.” Mawan reiterated that it is in this era of fast track digital information and technological advances that the harmony and solidarity of people must be protected.

To further enhance Mawans point,”the Conference of Malay Rulers has even expressed concern at the state of harmony and unity in the country, making reference to the Muslims-only laundrettes and other recent incidents.

Mawans politics has Shifted Gears from ensuring that the people in his constituency basic needs of water,roads,bridges,education,housing are all taken care off to another level where he outreaches to all. He has never stop imparting the significance and importance of moderation and solidarity to all Sarawakians.

Many in his constituency sees the good in him and are willing him on to continue to serve as their Saratok representative in Parliament. Their voices are been heard significantly by the top BN hierarchy.

This quote,”while we may have known Mawan well but there may be still much that we do not know about him. But one thing we all know about him for a long time is that he is a FIGHTER.” This basically sums it up on Mawan(at least according to BN Sarawak Secretary General and Minister Dr.Stephen Rundi)

Mawan knows there are no fixed rules to succeed to serve the Saratok people well but he uses his personal values,qualities and non confrontational approach to achieve a higher level of goodness.

The inter community golf serves the purpose to further enhance the solidarity and moderation which is crucial to safeguard the unity of all Sarawakians and shelter all from the howling Extremism and Fanaticism wind blowing across the world.

amawan18bIt might sound simplistic to be involve in an inter community golf tournament but the deeper significance is for all to see as the participants are very attuned to the principles of solidarity and moderation.

Mawan would want this interaction of participants to tee-off to its 10th Year but they all have to start driving it off the green first come the 21st of October 2017.

The Gears have Shifted and it has GONE BEYOND what one has perceived and it is here to stay.

 

SEKONGKOL POLITIK DAP DAN MAHATHIR

ajunaidi1SEKONGKOL POLITIK DAP DAN MAHATHIR : SARAWAK TIDAK LUAK

1. Saya sebenarnya tidak pernah berminat untuk membaca apatah lagi membalas coretan politik Aziz Isa dan Dr Kelvin Yii yang saya anggap selama ini hampas dan tidak memberi apa apa kesan kepada pencapaian cemerlang politik PBB di Sarawak. Namun kenyataan berani YB Dato Sri Wan Junaidi baru-baru ini mengenai idola DAP iaitu Tun Mahathir dan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim telah menyebabkan kedua dua Pembantu Politik YB Chong Chieng Jen meroyan tahap gaban dalam FB dan kenyataan di media sosial mereka. Atas dasar kasihan kepada kedua mereka yg jelas telah menunjukkan tahap pengetahuan politik yang amat terbatas dan cetek , maka saya terpanggil untuk menjernihkan kekusutan dan kecelaruan minda mereka.

2. Apa yang dimaksudkan oleh Dato Sri Wan Junaidi bahawa beliau berdiam diri selama 20 tahun adalah berdiam diri dari bercerita mengenai kejadian Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim membaling fail kepada beliau sewaktu dalam satu sesi perbincangan 20 tahun yang lepas di Putrajaya dimana Dato Sri Wan Junaidi memohon agar peruntukan MRP setiap Ahli Parlimen Sabah dan Sarawak ditambah kepada RM 500 ribu seorang. Namun Dato Sri Anwar Ibrahim terus berdiri dan membaling fail ke arah Datuk Sri Wan Junaidi dan berkata ‘ Saya tidak boleh membuang semua duit ke Sabah dan Sarawak ‘. Celarunya otak Aziz dan Dr Kelvin adalah mereka hanya fokus kepada bahagian cerita diamnya Dato Sri Wan Junaidi dari bercerita tentang kisah ini tetapi tidak melihat kepada keseluruhan cerita bahawa Dato Sri Wan Junaidi yang bersuara untuk kepentingan dan keperluan Sabah Sarawak . Aziz dan Dr Kelvin juga secara sengaja tidak melihat bahagian angkuhnya Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim menolak rintihan rakyat yang dibawa oleh Dato Sri Wan Junaidi. Budak Tadika Permata pun boleh faham rentetan cerita ini yang menggambarkan usaha Dato Wan Junaidi yang telah bertindak dan berjuang untuk kepentingan rakyat Sarawak manakala Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim adalah watak antagonis dalam cerita ini. Namun Dato Sri Wan Junaidi atas dasar semangat setiakawan BN tidak menceritakan mengenai insiden ini. Beliu juga percaya kepada perjuangan BN dan tetap terus berusaha sehingga akhirnya sewaktu Pak Lah dan Dato Sri Najib menjadi PM, maka barulah peruntukan pembangunan Ahli Parlimen Sabah dan Sarawak telah ditambah dan diganda seperti yang dipinta.

3. Saya jadi lucu melihat celoteh politik Aziz dan Dr Kelvin yang berulang ulang kali bertanya apa jasa Dato Sri Wan Junaidi kepada Sarawak. Lucu yang hampir membuat saya muntah hijau. Saya selaku pembantu dan Setiausaha Politik kepada Dato Sri Wan Junaidi sejak tahun 2005 sehingga kini amat mengetahui apa yang telah diusahakan oleh beliau untuk rakyat Sarawak. Kepada Aziz dan Dr Kelvin,sila rujuk buku tulisan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi bertajuk ‘A Policeman ‘ , sebelum anda lahir lagi iaitu pada tahun 1969 sehingga 1973 , Wan Junaidi sudah berperang di dalam hutan berhadapan dan menentang komunis. Beliau sewaktu itu berumur 22 tahun dan berpangkat Inspektor dalam Pasukan Polis Hutan telah mengetuai satu platun dan bertempur secara berhadapan dengan komunis dalam 5 operasi.

Beliau telah melihat sendiri bagaimana anak buah platun nya hancur kepala, terkeluar otak dan terburai perut sewaktu bertempur dengan komunis bahkan pernah sekali peluru komunis tersasar betul-betul di atas kepala beliau dan kini, Aziz Isa serta Dr Kalvin bertanya apakah jasa Dato Sri Wan Junaidi ? Aziz, sebesar manakah jasa yang telah anda pula taburkan untuk Sarawak sehingga anda layak untuk mempersoalkan apakah jasa Wan Juanidi kepada Sarawak????

4. Bagaimana mungkin Aziz dan Dr Kelvin boleh mengatakan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi berdiam diri selama 20 tahun sedangkan Wan Junaidi adalah antara Ahli Parlimen BN yang paling lantang dan keras bersuara di Parlimen Malaysia sepanjang tempoh beliau berkhidmat sebagai Yang Berhormat. Sila lah rujuk handsard Parlimen Malaysia anda pasti akan menemui Wan Junaidi dalam rekod hansard yang mana di dalam hampir setiap sidang parlimen beliau akan bercakap membawa isu-isu dari Sarawak. Oleh kerana terlalu lantang itulah maka Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim pernah menyenarai hitam nama Wan Junaidi untuk mewakili Malaysia ke luar Negara selama 6 tahun sehinggalah Pak Lah menjadi Timbalan Perdana Menteri.

5. Wan Junaidi jugalah Ahli Parlimen yang pertama yang menyuarakan dan mencadangkan kepada Parlimen dan Kerajaan Malaysia untuk penubuhan kampus Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) sewaktu sidang Parlimen pada tahun 1991 walaupun beliau telah mendapat amaran dari Anwar Ibrahim selaku TPM masa itu agar tidak membangkitkan isu ini. Wan Junaidi telah berulang ulang kali menbawa usul ini dengan nada yang keras dan turut dibantu oleh Ahli Ahli Parlimen BN Sarawak yang lain sehingga majalah Perempuan pada masa itu telah membuat liputan utama dalam majalah mereka dengan tajuk “ Wan Junaidi MP Batang Lupar Seganas Bujang Senang” sehingga akhirnya UNIMAS ditubuhkan secara rasmi pada tahun 1992. Layakkah Aziz Isa graduan dari UNIMAS mempersoalkan jasa-jasa perjuangan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi? Aziz Isa sebaliknya harus berterima kasih kepada Dato Sri Wan Junaidi…. Aziz Isa harus bertaubat.

6. Sewaktu dialog semua Ahli Yang Berhormat BN dari Sarawak bersama dengan Dato Sri Najib di Bangunan PWTC pada tahun 2012 , Dato Sri Wan Junaidi telah menyatakan kepada Dato Sri Najib mengenai keperluan pembinaan hospital baharu Sarawak dan dalam majlis itu Dato Sri Wan Junaidi telah menyerahkan surat rasmi mengenai cadangan dan permohonan beliau itu. Pada akhir 2012 , Setiausaha Sulit PM iaitu Dato Amir Haron telah menghubungi saya dan memaklumkan bahawa Dato Sri Najib Razak bersetuju untuk meluluskan RM 650 juta untuk pembinaan hospital baharu Sarawak seperti yang dipohon oleh Dato Sri Wan Junaidi. Walaupun projek hospital tersebut yang sekarang ini dinamakan sebagai Hospital Umum Petra Jaya terlewat dari jadual siap namun saya percaya projek ini akan siap jua nanti. Bila Aziz Isa dan Dr Kelvin datang membawa emak dan bapa mereka ke hospital itu nanti maka berterima kasihlah juga kepada Dato Sri Wan Junaidi.

7. Sebenarnya sepanjang pengalaman saya bekerja dengan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi, amat banyak peruntukan dan projek-projek pembangunan rakyat yang telah diluluskan oleh Dato Sri Najib hasil permohonan langsung Dato Sri Wan Junaidi kepada Dato Sri Najib termasuklah kelulusan RM 25 juta untuk membina SK Matu Baru bagi kemudahan pusat pendidikan anak-anak penduduk kampung Bintawa ( telah siap 2013 ), RM 60 juta untuk menyiapkan sekolah SMK Seni Kuching ( telah siap 2015 ), RM 20 juta untuk pembinaan tempat-tempat ibadah di Parlimen Santubong termasuklah masjid, gereja dan dewan masyarakat India, RM 125 juta untuk pembinaan jalan 2 hala Kampung Tanjung Bako ( siap pada 2015), RM 10 juta untuk membina jalan premix menggantikan titi kayu di Kampung Bintawa, RM 45 juta untuk jalan Bradek Semilang, RM 120 juta untuk projek sistem bekalan air Daerah Lundu, RM 300 juta untuk Projek Rancangan Tebatan Banjir Bandar Kuching dan seluruh Sarawak dan banyak lagi projek-projek yang langsung tidak dipedulikan oleh Tun Mahathir dulu tapi telah diluluskan dibawah pentadbiran Dato Sri Najib sebagai Perdana Menteri.

8. Tak perlulah saya nak jelaskan kepada Aziz Isa sumbangan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi di kawasan Parlimen Santubong. Peningkatan undi majoriti Dato Sri Wan Junaidi antara majoriti yang tertinggi dalam pilihanraya PRU 13 yang lepas sudah cukup menunjukkan perjuangan dan kerja-kerja pembangunan yang dilakukan oleh Wan Junaidi adalah diterima dan diktiraf oleh penduduk Parlimen Santubong sehingga kedua-dua calon pembangkang yang melawan Dato Sri Wan Junaidi telah hilang wang cengkeram. Aziz Isa harus menerima fakta bahawa Dato Sri Wan Junaidi is the darling of Parlimen Santubong.

9. Namun bukan budaya kerja BN untuk mengaku sebagai one man show. Sebab itulah , walaupun banyak sumbangan yang dibuat, namun Dato Sri Wan Junaidi tidak pernah mendabik dada berkata itu hasil kerja beliau seorang kerana beliau percaya kepada kejayaan pencapaian beliau adalah hasil kerja berkumpulan dari peringkat tertinggi BN Nasional dan Negeri sehinggalah ke pekerja parti. Semangat keutuhan setiakawan Barisan Nasional inilah yang memberi keyakinan kepada beliau bahawa sekongkol politik Tun Mahathir bersama dengan DAP Sarawak tidak akan memberi luak kepada BN Sarawak. Kalau 2013 kita dapat melihat gelombang crowd yg lebih besar di pentas politik Pakatan Rakyat di Sarawak namun akhirnya hampir semua calon BN Sarawak mendapat undi majoriti yang meningkat dan tinggi termasuklah Wan Junaidi, Fadillah Yusof, James Dawos,Nancy Shukri, Rohani Karim , Ahmad Lai, Wahab Dolah dan Norah Abdul Rahman dan lain lain.

Broader Support for MP205 Saratok..

amawan2345It’s absolutely clear for BN when Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister James Masing said that if the state assemblyman supports the Member of Parliament there is no reason to look further. This case of Kanowit MP Aaron where Machan seat is represented by a PBB assemblyman and Ngemah seat by a PRS assemblyman. He said it clearly as the party president he will follow what they both want and stop looking anywhere else.

This above scenario augers well for the Incumbents who will represent BN in GE14 besides the “WINNABILITY AND LOYALTY” factors which the Barisan Nasional Hierarchy have mentioned and addressed it to all aspiring lobbyists.

When it comes to the Saratok Seat where the incumbent is a BN independent sitting MP and an assemblyman the BN also needs to listen to the ground plus the assemblyman from the state seats of Kabong and Kalaka. The Krian State seat is a stronghold of PKR YB and there must not be even a “hint of a crack in the armour of BN” to let the opposition in.

Mawan have been seen in numerous functions,activities together with both the State Assemblyman in his Parliamentary constituency. His relationship is very cordial and their main aim is to ensure that “Saratok remains a Parliamentary stronghold for BN and to win this seat in GE14 and also to silent all critics once and for all.”

The Marker is already set and  there is no reason whatsoever to replace a “winnable,acceptable and loyal”MP who is not only seen criss-crossing his constituency but also a very approachable MP whose experience as a former State Senior Minister and nearly 30 years as assemblyman leaves little for his critics to “paint a black picture“. There has been too many wild accusations which without ‘solid evidence” does not deter the MP from carrying his work earnestly for the people and the voters of Saratok who wants him maintained and carrying out his duties.

Mawan has done tremendously well in his first term as Parliamentarian and his accomplishment to date is already an eye opener for many aspiring MP’s in the future. He is always doing his best and he himself “pushes it to the limit” and the people of Saratok have reciprocated.  The onslaught in recent times have simmered down and the State BN knows that Mawan is worth his place as a candidate for the upcoming GE14.

Besides being MP Saratok and ADUN for Pakan and added responsibilities as Chairman of Pepper Marketing board Mawan is also the President of Sarawak Dayak National Union (SDNU) in which he encourages them to reach out to all through social acitivities.

Mawan pointed out,”politics can be divisive. however these kind of activities have prove their ability in cutting across the differences in politics,ideology and background towards uniting the people.”  Mawan has never shy away in promoting unity and in his book “Reflections” there is so much to know that Mawan walks the talk and he is sincere in his approach to whatever the task that he sets out to accomplish.

He sees it as his BURDEN OF DUTY to help the change the mindset of the Bumiputeras in the rural areas,upgrade their knowledge and skills and ultimately usher them into the mainstream of development. He knows its a competitive environment and he remains resolute and focused to ensure that Saratok constituency will be elevated higher by the time his tenure is over to be handed over to the next Parliamentarian for Saratok.

Until then he is very much entrenched to serve Saratok for another term. Does he have the full support from his constituents?

indexMawan holds numerous consultations and dialogue with the local community leaders and is very much n sync with the youths and this approach will benefit greatly for the BN in the upcoming GE14. His support is there for everyone to see and even the State BN leaders are steadfastly with him (pictures above)

The BN hierarchy will have NO QUALMS whatsoever to even think of replacing him.

Barisan Nasional Sarawak under CM Abang Johari in his maiden general election as BN Sarawak Chairman will not even want to lose a single seat from the 25 which they hold. PM Najib will certainly take note of the BROADER SUPPORT that Incumbent MP Mawan has.

Mawan has worked the ground tirelessly and have won the hearts of many in his constituency and the people have all the faith in him to carry on as their Saratok Parliamentarian. The two assemblymen and his close colleagues in BN will prefer Mawan to continue. They are very comfortable with him as his track record speaks for itself.

The support for MP205 Mawan will not be EASILY DIMINISHED and he is still very much the choice of Barisan Nasional as the winnable candidate for GE14.

 

 

Aspiring Lobbyists”Missing the Target.?”

alobbyists

Strike 1..! Strike 2..!! Strike 3..!!! Ooops all.. MISSED.

Seriously, the 3 BN PDP lobbyists have not ‘done enough” to weaken the opposition PKR . Their tactics of incessant attack on BN’s Elected Incumbent MP 205 have not gone down too well within the BN Hierarchy Framework as its a ‘DIRECT SLAP ON THE FACES OF BARISAN NASIONAL COALITION

The Fact remains that the incumbent himself has not distanced himself from the constituency since the day he was elected in 2013. He has been working the ground providing and being with the constituents and being people-centric. Honestly, if he has Slackened or is an Absentee MP surely the main stream media,blogs and the internet portals will have ‘eaten him up for dinner and supper

Is there any need to have any onslaught on him who is very much a “Sitting Incumbent BN Member of Parliament”?

Why are the guns of the lobbyists not targeting the Opposition PKR?

Even the great SUN TZU would be rolling over his grave and wondering likewise.

The Lobbyists have concentrated mainly in the KRIAN area which without a doubt still remains a PKR seat held successfully for a 2nd term by Ali Biju who defeated Kilat Beriak (BN/SPDP) by 1640 votes. Did we get it wrong in our previous articles? Let’s refresh ourselves shall we.

  • Article 1. https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/07/12/lobbyistsbelittling-or-compromising-pdp-or-bn/
  • Article 2  https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/08/15/sympathiser-for-pkr-for-bn-p205-saratok/

We are indeed baffled to the extend that its very unbecoming for the President of the party to “still encourage” this lobbying exercise to continue. He is well advised but there seems to be a wool over his eyes especially when it comes to the Saratok Parliamentary Constituency. Of course, the party and the President will inform the BN hierarchy that all is well in the area? Is it?

Will it be wrong for the lobbyists to be praising the Incumbent BN MP on a job well done? Politically, for sure they would have scored ‘brownie points“if they will continue doing the same like the Incumbent if chosen on the BN ticket. This would certainly have gone down pretty well with the various government agencies on the ground covering their movements. Their communication with the people leaves much to be desired and a brief ‘internship‘ looks more likely for them.

Having said all that we are not in anyway belittling them but they have chosen the to focus on the wrong target and may have crossed the line once too often.

What have been seriously missing is that the lobbyists should have their guns blazing and focused on the weaknesses of the opposition parties in particular PKR instead of the BN incumbent. The fact remains on the lips and minds of the many hard core BN loyalists which simply is ,”

Will they be turncoats?”

Their “MISSING JABS AND BODY BLOWS” at the opposition party has not only created the uneasiness within the BN democratic framework but it could provide them with an Alternative and an Outlet to return to their former base. This is not unusual for politics .

Will that happen? 

We are not one to speculate on the future after the General elections but in time it will reveal the true colours of the aspiring lobbyists.

Are we being unfair to them? Surely,not..

Loyalty has been the mainstay and secret weapon for Barisan Nasional and its not just about to change. There is much concern and unease within the BN family that as the GE14 approaches many more skeletons in the closet will be unearthed on the lobbyists.

The Incumbent MP William Mawan is doing his duty calmly and diligently as a Parliamentarian in his constituency. His years of experience must not be overlooked and he has put it to good use. He has outreached to the people in his constituency in his first term and the BN coalition will put their trusts and their hope on retaining the seat through a winnable candidate.

Mawan has always been very magnanimous and he says this, “Don’t Pretend What You don’t know. If you Don’t know just ask

The Target is very wide open in P205 and it does seem that the Lobbyists have a lot to catch up before they finally hit the target. They still have much to learn from the Incumbent and BN Sitting MP in the experienced Tan Sri William Mawan. He is only a phone call away.

Until then the Barisan Nasional it seems will not be using them in the shop window just yet.

Are we wrong to say that? You will know better…..
