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.

“PKR East Malaysia…In total Disarray.”

 

Updated and Breaking News 5.08pm :- Zaid is going on leave ONLY as he has completed his first tasks in PKR as the prime mover in getting the parties on a Common Footing. He will not leave PKR if thats what everyone is speculating..Seems someone else Azmin is getting more wrath especially with his not SO SECRET dealings with Sng according to a reliable source.

Updated and Breaking News from Malaysiakini at 3.53pm :-PKR leader and former minister Zaid Ibrahim today announced that he will be going on a six-month leave, strengthening rumours that all is not well in the opposition party

A grassroot PKR member told audie 61 that ,” In East Malaysia at the moment there are too much infighting within the party and this is bad news. Only the man himself meaning Anwar can save PKR in East Malaysia from engulfing into flames. There was a lot of hope and believe when Anwar was the PKR Liason Chief in Sabah and Sarawak but as soon as he relinquished his posts to Azmin and Mustaffa respectively the CEMENTED CRACKS appeared again.”

audie61 was informed that we have been covering too many BN articles(personalities in BN) and we are going on a lopsided trail.  Just going throught the internet blogs we can see for ourselves that all is not too well in PKR and there is a cause for concern.

  1.  Malaysiakini report -Sabah Chief throws tantrum
  2.  The People’s Parliament-New Sabah PKR Chief Ahoy
  3. The Malaysianinsider– Discord In PKR over Zaid.
  4. Zorro-Unmasked-Rumble a LA West side story

Has Anwar losts the plot in the two states in East Malaysia..? There have been too many NEGATIVE  reports and we reposts it here for all to evaluate,discuss,digress and to recheck the direction of the party and its struggles. Have you joined the party to be embroilled in all this petty squabbling?

From Sabah in Malaysikini report,” Yes, we are unhappy that Azmin seems to be in the pocket of Sng Chee Hwa of Sarawak,” confirmed both divisional chiefs. He turns up at Anwar’s house every time with Sng in tow. We don’t know what kind of hold Azmin has over Anwar and that disturbs us. Something is just not right here.”

PKR headquarters,”Several PKR leaders here believe that by going to Sabah and Sarawak, Zaid would be sending the wrong signal and not showing solidarity with party headquarters.

Mustaffa on Sarawak Liason Chief,”It is up to Anwar and PKR president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to appoint someone who they think can lead the party in Sarawak. I know that they have found somebody. It is a matter of time when they will announce the name of the person.”

On Gabriel Adit PKR YB in Sarawak,”is already going around the longhouses bragging that he will soon be talking to Anwar as an equal” once his new party is set up.

A veteran politician told audie61 that it is indeed a timely reminder to all those who aspire to reach the pinnacle of their chosen profession in politicst o follow the age old statement,”Good Man Will Never make it in Politics and One has to be RUTHLESS PLUS BEING SELFISH  to achieve your dream.” History does not lie too he said.

What is happening in PKR or for that matter in Pakatan is indeed not healthy but its a political process of reengineering itself. UMNO went through that process and with Najib in the helm now there seems to be some sort of Light at the end of the Tunnel as UMNO was basking and flickering through past glories without any direction.

Najib seems to be able to get a grib of things with his hands on attitude and Anwar will need also to keep a tight leash or the breakup of PKR In East Malaysia will be sooner rather than later. In simpler terms the “INFIGHTING AND NONSENSICAL ATTITUDES have to STOP or we might just ready a TOMBSTONE with “BORN …..and DIED………”

PKR in East Malaysia needs to be CRUEL TO BE KINDin order to realise Anwars slogan,” A New Dawn”  or else you and I would be saying to our grandchildren in 15 years time ,” IF ONLY……………..”

{ Now Pakatan YBs also Arrogant..????}

                                                    

A political watcher hinted to Natasha of audie 61 to view the report in Malaysiakini in which it said{ Jeff Ooi should apologise} and in it Halim said{ Jeff Ooi is known for his arrogance}. Surely apologising is not one of his trait. But he must learn that JIM is an organisation that he cannot just trample on and nothing happens. If he wants to be a politician in multiracial and multicultural society than he has to learn humility. Insulting organisations is not as the same as insulting individuals     

 DOES IT MEAN THAT ….  { It really goes to show now that once the individual ascends the so called throne of Yang Berhormats their mentality,character,personality and intellectual levels are up one notch and they SUDDENLY have got their feet off the ground..} But it must be noted that one bad apple does affect the whole bunch and this is what BN or Pakatan leaders needs to CHECK THE ARROGANCE THERMOMETERS of their respective YBs or else in this day and age they will be blown away in the NEXT ELECTIONS.

 THE Voters nowaways are TOO STREET SMART with the availability and advancement of superior technological savvy tools at a touch of a button. 

audie 61 says  ( AT THE END OF IT ALL ITS YOUR CALL WITH A MARK AT WHICH SYMBOL TO PICK YOUR YBs or MPs…………………………) Are we correct,correct,correct…?

‘Cawat” Issue..Stay Clear Wanita’s??

Updated 28th July :- Sms sent to Secretary General of PRS– Wilfred Nissom.Thank God and Glad there is no burning of PAS Flags.We are better than that.

Updated 28th July 9.30am- Headlines “Gathering to burn PAS flags put off,says PRS man. The full story can be seen in Todays Borneo Post Article page 12. Was this our timely intervention with our article and thus someone politically connected with the Prime Minister’s department raised the ALARM BELLS. Thank God or else all Hell would have broken loose. 

Last Friday before I posted the article on ” Wanita PKR Sarawak- A New Dawn” I asked PRS Batu Lintang Wanita Chief and Treasurer are they ready if chosen at an instant to stand for the coming elections. Of course, they said we are in politics not only to serve and fight for the party but also groomed to take over. In my article I mentioned ,” PRS has yet to field any wanita candidate but it is speculated by PRS members that the current Wanita chief Doris Brodie is being groomed to be a candidate. How ironic it is today she seems to grab the headlines and suddenly appears? Something is brewing and are they any connections to the New Dawn?

This is what she said in the Sunday Borneo Posts,’

Expressing anger over Hadi’s remarks about Batang Ai voters recently, Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) women chief Doris Sophia Brodie said yesterday the remarks reflected the type of leaders PAS and PR have.

“Obviously, PAS and Pakatan are not ethnic-sensitive, thus they can forget about making their existence felt in Sarawak especially in Dayak dominant areas. On top of that, it is such remarks that stir racial tension,” she said.

“I think what Hadi said should hit the nail squarely for Dayak opposition leaders. Clearly, Pakatan and PAS do not have them or the Dayak at heart, to them the Dayaks are just to make the numbers and their laughing stock.

In this respect, she said the PRS women of Batang Ai, Simanggang and Bukit Begunan divisions would come out in full force to support PRS Batang Ai youth in its plan to burn PAS flags in Engkilili town todayk.

We are at bests trying to STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM THIS ISSUE AS POSSIBLE. However,we know that a fire would not have started  if the sparks are not lighted.Sarawak Wanita Chiefs from PKR/DAP/PAS/SNAP should not only stay silent on this issue as the Wanita Chief from PRS  has already lashed out. Recently joined PKR former MCA leader Chua Jui Meng would be telling you all,” A Politician is not a Politician if she/he keeps quiet.”

We received a number of smses but this from a senior a dayak leader and a former high ranking civil officer which will be open to your interpretations ,”Mrng bro.what Hadi meant was,dyks hv cawat political mentality.f u say dyks r well clothed 2 refer 2 hadi’s statement,once again hadi n d rest will laugh at n deride even phd educated dyk pol leaders ENDA NEMU RETI JAKO SINDIR” 

Burning FLAGS please,please,please I don’t buy that. It’s like Hooliganism in football where rival Fans taunt each other by burning flags on the terraces. Who has come out with this idea.? This is POLITICS AND NOT FOOTBALL.The person who has even initiated this idea let alone carry it out should be TAKEN AWAY and PUT IN JAIL AS THIS IS NOTORIOUSLY EVIL THOUGHT.

audie61 seriously take this as an attempt to instigate a TRULY EXPLOSIVE situation. It’s uncalled for even by PRS Batang Ai Youth. PM ‘s department and the authorities concerned should seriously look into this very  MINDLESS AND THOUGHTLESS  POLITICAL ACT. 

IN Malaysia we have enough problems with death and we do not need our political strategists from any political party be it BN/PAKATAN to even think of this. This will eventually lead to  even worse scenario. It only takes someone to singlehandedly take it a step higher,”TORCH PAS HEADQUARTERS” Then what will happen?

PM Najib we do not need to be reminded of the Brixton,Guildford,Manchester nor Liverpool riots where cities just burn through the night for seven to ten nights in the 80’s. (150 buildings damaged,30 burned down)

We say as always,”Politics is politics, but do not take it overboard and it will turn ugly and the whole country suffers. The country is already suffering economically and we do not need another FLAG BURNING THOUGHT to aggravate the precarious and fluid political situation.

“Wanita PKR Sarawak A New Dawn”

Your Vote Counts!

The State elections for Sarawak is not due till 2011 but the Pakatan Sarawak machinery is well underway with discussions amongst the opposition component parties in reaching a common ground. Wanita PKR Sarawak had their meeting in the evening and they were also caught up in the “frenzy” of the state elections. The mainstream media /internet portal malaysiakini covered the first “fruitful” meeting between the leaders of DAP/PKR.

According to sources it was the first “official” meeting and in subsequent meetings Sarawak PAS and SNAP leaders will not be left out. Of course the main issue remains,” Straight Fight against BN Sarawak” where all parties will agree on a single candidate from Pakatan against BN. Great says PKR Wanita Exco Voon S.N  ( lawyer by profession)

She gave her views when interviewed by audie61 on the current allocation of seats amongst the Pakatan group. They will be intense lobbying of course she says as most “eligible and aspiring” candidates lobbyists will be trying to push for their own. It will be no different for Wanita PKR she says.

“Don’t get me wrong,I am not pushing for myself” DAP has Violet and Ting as candidates and they pulled through. Of course  PKR Wanita Sarawak would be grateful if at least 2 or more of our capable/winnable Wanita candidates are considered. We will try to push for the national quota but we have to face the realities  that we will be facing the “might of BN”

Unless we are given that platform we will not be certain that we will not win. We will not go into a battle that we will not win she says. It must be noted too that at least 50% of the voters in some constituencies are women folks and with the current political situation in the country,anything can happen we obviously will stand a chance,”Don’t you think so audie61 she asks?”

We just nodded and we got in touch with a number of BN Wanita members who said,”we will not underestimate the might of our enemies and we will ensure that they will not have it easy.” Are they going to do battle with our BN Wanita YBS at their constituencies.?”

 Its only PBB,SPDP who are the current YBs. SUPP fielded Lily Yong and she was defeated by PKR Dominique Ng who was the first PKR State YB for the country. PRS has yet to field any wanita candidate but it is speculated by PRS members that the current Wanita chief Doris Brodie is being groomed to be a candidate.

Will it be a New Dawn for Wanita PKR Sarawak? This question will only be answered if the national and state leaders in PKR gives them just that “flicker of hope” and a CHANGE for Sarawak. Another PKR lady member Rosie said,’ In politics there is always a chance. Times have changed and BN will need to work doubly hard to face us.It’s all calm now.Don’t you feel it?”

Of course she was saying,”There is a storm coming and BN be ready or else you will be swept away.

20081215_aliran_ambanner

We say as always,”There will not be any stones unturned as all political parties head towards the 2011 State elections. Will we see PKR wanita candidates..Im sure Dr.Wan Azizah PKR President would give them her stamp of approval..

IMO-“Senior Sng must have had Tantrums”

jmasing

“Happier times-“The last 25 minutes Supreme Council meeting before the Pre-Emptive Move”

I.M.O.– In my opinion and nobody’s I would imagine this scenario.Dato Sng Chee Hua must have thrown out a tantrum and at worse cursed so many times that its bests to avoid him. A person who is kind at heart at the bests of times.

However  Senior Sng has a way in pushing his ideas and thoughts across and one would not be able to know what hit him. This Borneo Posts article,”Time to fill vacant assistant minister posts:Masing” would not exactly make his food go down well in his early breakfast. Wouldn’t you be ANGRY as a Parent like Senior Sng when you see this column…

According to Masing,PRS now has two vacant assistant ministers posts-one,made vacant following the demise of former Assistant Minister of Agriculture and Sport and two,because Assistant Minister In Chief Minister’s Department Larry Sng being ‘partyless’

Whats more James is using the cover of the CM to push his political statement through with saying this,” he agreed with Chief Minister’s recent statement that the next cabinet reshuffle would be to prepare BN to face the next election. He said this to reporters that it was crucial for BN to gain the support of the people and to use the resources available by filling the vacant assistant minister’s posts.

Many PRS members and sympathisers have their own version of James Masings statements and we compile what has been said in the market talk in Sarawak eventhough today sees the DUN Manek Urai by elections in Kelantan.

  • Could they be more than what meets the eyes..?
  • Could this be a body blow to the Hidden Hands ?
  • Could this be done to nullify the damage that the Puppet Masters are doing to create a wedge between President Masing and his deputy Entulu?
  • Could this be also telling the CM Taib that in PRS Masing is very much in charge?
  • Could the political strategists in PRS be telling the lobbyists that Masing has the final say eventhough the CM has the prerogative?
  • Could Masing be pushing the envelope to CM Taib a bit too far?
  • Could Masing be justs telling CM Taib that he is the President of PRS and he is only informing the CM of his members intentions and views. 
  • Could this statement be more harmful to the already deteriorating relationship of CM and Masing?
  • Could Senior Sng just let it go?
  • Could Masing be facing a tidal wave very soon?

Many senior PRS members were tight lipped as they were reminded that there is a“gag’ order in place and that disciplinary actions will be taken by the party. Of course some former  PBDS members were just clapping their hands as it seems that James suddenly has got the LION HEART and telling the BOSS indirectly through the mass media. Doesn’t this even lenghten the already strained realtionship?

 Some political observers are likening this situation very much like what PBS did to Tun Mahathir in the eleventh hour. There is just that  possibility as many have not forgotten how Taib and Tun embrace each other which many political figures were angered by this Sandiwara. It will not be a surprise if it REALLY HAPPENS.

That is also one of the many reasons that CM sees the need for a merger of SPDP/PRS and it will be better controlled. The window doesn’t just close there. There is a lot of dissatisfaction amongst PRS members in being overlooked in certain GLC positions and other business opportunities. CM and his advisors are closely monitoring the situation and does not need PRS to create more problems as the State prepares to face DAP/PAS/PKR/SNAP opposition parties.

 Of course James needs to weigh his options well as he is not getting any younger and at 60 it might  just be the perfect time in politics to go for BROKE. In 1983 when he first joined Politics he was a fresh face and now 26 years later being overlooked and considered a dayak leader he has every chance to move ahead. He also knows that getting Senior Sng hot at the collar will in fact push his political ambitions a step further. In other words its just bluntly put,”Don’t think I am afraid of the CM Taib..?” A lot of dayak people wished he has the guts to say that and JUST maybe be on his side. You know what they say when the leader is beaten all the soldiers will run helter- skelter.

We say as always,”There will be a lot of soul searching for PAS in Manek Urai after securing a tissue thin majority of 65 and BN will be questioning what could have been too? James has open up the PANDORA Box and he would have ANTICIPATED that Senior Sng will not let him go of the HOOK so easily.

Pakatan/BN “Failed Engagement”

Hype up it was. Everyone in every state from every corner of the street and villages/longhouses were talking about PAS/UMNO getting together in an engagement party. It was to lead to a Marriage of Convenience where many BN leaders are so fond of using this political term. Alas, the fear has been erased and it has brought many smiles back to mosts spindoctors/strategists. What if it has materialised?

This is the report from Malaysiakini Internet portal

Pakatan Rakyat leaders today took a uniform stand to reject the formation of a unity government with Umno or Barisan Nasional.

MCPX

The PKR, DAP and PAS leaders reiterated their commitment to the opposition coalition with the aim of forming the federal government someday.

The joint statement was signed by Opposition Leader and PKR supremo Anwar Ibrahim, DAP’s Lim Kit Siang and PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang.

“The Pakatan council of leaders has reaffirmed our rejection of the idea of forming a unity government with Umno/BN which is clearly a malicious and desperate attempt to compromise the integrity of the increasingly popular Pakatan Rakyat.

“Pakatan agrees to adopt an open approach and is willing to hold discussions with the leaders of BN on issues of national interests,” read the statement.

The statement dispelled rumours of a break-up in Pakatan over the issue of PAS and Umno holding unity talks.
We say as always,”Next–Manek Urai and Onwards to GE13…!!!!
