Anwar “PKR Sarawak disintegrating..H1N1??”

It’s on ‘Overdrive”. This were the words used by one of the movers of seeing a new political party In Sarawak to emerge. It seems that all these has and is vey well connected with The Surrendering of Anwar as the State PKR chief. Our earlier article covered https://audie61.wordpress.com/2009/05/27/anwar-unthinkable-for-sarawak/.

Even a Senior PKR member said that he has been told that such a plan has been making the rounds in the Sarawak political arena. If Thanenthirran  Hindraf national coordinator can form a new party Parti Makkal Sakti Malaysia within a short notice after meeting the PM Najib there are no reasons to stop a New Sarawak Based Party. This new party will inevitably derail part of Anwars plans to get the dayaks on track to go against the BN government.

A veteran Bidayuh leader even said,”There are more problems in PKR Sarawak which spells doom for the ethnic origin members. There are no clear cut leaders who will be able to bring PKR to greater heights. Yes,Anwar is good at oratory skills but his action has brought more harm than good by appointing a much  junior EXCO member to sort out the problems faced by the Peninsular based party in Sarawak.

What if there is a new party inviting Sarawakians to join? Could this just be making up the numbers? In other democratic countries the mushrooming of new political parties are seen as a “Healthy sign for Democracy“.

Sarawak based parties will be seen as the the vital cog and a bargaining chip for either the BN or Pakatan in the tussle for WHO TAKES OVER THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. It is happening and Najib being a military trained man knows too well of the advantages of controlling his array of allies and supporters. 

Anwar is seen doing housecleaning acts in PKR while Najib focusses more on long term achievements. Najib does not want to be embroiled in a war of words with Anwar as he knows too well the proverb,”A quiet dog has a more deadly bite”. He lets his close aides do the works for him while he goes about moving the country out of economic turmoil and breaking newer grounds in International relations.

The group of politicians who are very much part of Anwars vision for the future  of Sarawak has where it hurts Anwar mosts. Propaganda and rheotorics aside the worms in PKR Sarawak will eventually turned into more than positive for influenza A (H1N1). Something drastic needs to be done Anwar. Will it be a little too late..??

If PPP is being investigated by the ROS immediatedly by the PM there are even chances that Sarawak based parties will be given the chance for a breakthrough. These statement by Najib which appeared in Malaysiakini,””I will verify PPP’s status with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) first (before deciding on whether to attend the assembly.”

Its an all out action stance by PM Najib and he wants clear cut answers. He is not about to sweep things under the carpet.As long as the parties are not extreme in ideology there shouldn’t be any reason for ROS not to entertain the submission,registration and new existence of a new Political Sarawak entity. We shall see….

We say as always,”The movers and shakers of the New political identity will soon be making arrangements to file their party name and may even drop in at the PM’s door….Would we know..??

Anwar “Unthinkable” for Sarawak

While Anwar is busy campaigning in Penang a storm is brewing up for PKR Sarawak.  Our informed source says all is not well as even the supremo and PKR de facto leader  has given up on Sarawak with all the infighting overflowing. He has also handed over the mantle to someone junior eventhough the person in question Mustpaha has proven qualities and a track record. Is Anwar really surrendering Sarawak? Is he taking all the wrap as even his choice of Jawah Gerang was a miscalculated move.

In todays political climate and culture we are taught never to give in and never give up. We dont hear much about surrendering. Najib surrendered Perak to Zambry but he took up the posts in Selangor as the Chief. Anwar surrendered but where is he heading too? Are both of them playing psychological mind games.? This is really taking two steps backwards instead of two steps forward. Winning is everything but Surrendering is Unthinakable.

Najib is succeeding,overcoming and conquering while Anwar is yielding,submitting and surrendering. It was supposed to be a meeting of minds and unlocking some puzzles but audie61 got more than what we have bargained for. There are tremors been felt eventhough many say its PKR Sarawaks housecleaning campaign. Does PKR Sarawak has the time? Even a longhouse folk in the interior does not know the PKR symbol. We quote ,”Its a HOSPITAL SIGN

The inroads and energy wasted especially in the ego infighting should be channelled to making the party more solid and  determining how the seats will be won. Besides,if i remember correctly didn’t Anwar propagandared that once Sarawak BN is wrestled the domino theory will follow?

It is barely two years before the next State elctions being called unless if and when the CM has got the magic inspirational  feeling it might be sooner. With Anwar surrendering and making less impact the appropriate time to go for the KILL and jugular would be very, very, very  near.

Will they be major movements of PKR members resigning enbloc. Nothing surprises us in Sarawak anymore and it seems some of the nuts are very loose now as PKR has hit the rough roads ahead. So whats the next bests thing for PKR members and supporters to think about. There are talks that a new political party is in the offing and steps are being taken to realise this. The name is already well thought of and cleverly masterminded.

 We would love to let the cat out of the bag but being citizens journalists we will abide to our informed sources wishes. Even a political consultant has been sought for and its only a matter of time when its all revealed. Anwar its ‘THINKABLE

 If Sabah and West Malaysia can have all these parties what is stopping Sarawakians from registering a new party? Good question but will the ROS bow down to the requests. Seems that there are HIDDEN HANDS at work in ROS especially when it involves setting up of political parties for Sarawak.

We say as always,”Anwar it points all to you for abandoning the people who they thought would breathe FRESH AIR for them. But the answer in fact lies in A SARAWAK BASED OPPOSITION party. Another Berjaya or PBS..but Sarawak style..???

“May 31st Polling Day”

Cindy received an sms,”Nomination day 23rd and Polling 31st May-Penanti State Seat. This was also confirmed by Malaysiakini breaking news:-

The by-election for the Penanti state seat in Penang will be held on May 31.

MCPX

The Election Commission, announcing the date this morning, has fixed May 23 for nominations.

EC chairperson Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof also dismissed claims by various quarters that the commission had delayed the announcement for political reasons.

Detractors have claimed that although the seat became vacant on April 16, the EC had waited for the Umno supreme council meeting to be convened last Friday before announcing the date for the polling.

“There is no delay at all. We postponed the announcement to make sure the arrangement of the returning officers and their assistance officers.

“Last Thursday we had to meet the political parties (on another matter). The delay has nothing to do with the supreme council meeting. I didn’t even know when it was held,” he said at a press conference held at the EC headquarters in Putrajaya.

“It is not related at all, it is not relevant. We have to announce the date within 10 days as provided by the law.

“Unless we announce it by the 12th day or so forth, then that’s a delay, it has nothing to do with Umno supreme council at all,” he stressed.

mohammad fairuz khairuddin mohammad fairus khairuddin The seat was vacated by PKR’s Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin, in the wake of corruption allegations linked to quarrying operations.

However, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission has since cleared him of any wrongdoing.

Will there be a contest?

PKR is expected to announce a candidate, but Barisan Nasional has yet to decide on contesting the by-election.

This will be the sixth by-election since the 12th general election last year, which saw the opposition Pakatan Rakyat alliance take control of Penang and four other states.

However, Perak has since fallen to the BN, with three representatives leaving the coalition – two from PKR and one from DAP.

Immediately after the seat became vacant, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had said that it was possible for the coalition to sit out for this by-election, pending the approval of all coalition partners.

Umno, which had previously contested in this seat, was expected to discuss if it should be contesting at the party’s supreme council meeting last Friday.

However the matter has now been passed to the party’s political bureau for a decision. The bureau is headed by Najib.

Umno division leaders in Penanti have called for the party to contest in the seat which falls within the Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat.

“N12 Penanti..??”

It was supposed to be announced this Friday but SPR has decided to make a statement on Monday 27th april 2009 on N12. This by election is called as  Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin former Deputy CM resigned due to personal grounds. He is currently being investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for alleged abuse of power.

We shall wait for the outcome of the official announcement on Monday. Both sides of the political divide has made their voices heard and its up to those who has an eye as a Legislator to represent the constituency of N12 to come forward. Will we see another Bukit Selambau lists of candidates..??The choice and the X will be up to the 15421 voters.

 We say as always,”Election fever in N12 will start cooking up if SPR sees a NEED TO CALL FOR A BY-Election.We shall never know will we, what happens next..??

“What’s cooking Malaysia..?”

These three inescapable topics have made Malaysians wake up at the breakfast tables talking and its carried with its rounds till dinner. Firstly,Tun Mahathir has come out with guns blazing.Secondly,speculations that MACC probing the CM Minister of Malacca and thirdly the MB of Terengganu fighting for his dear life as pressure piles on him to step down.

Wow! Isn’t this all very sudden? Two State CEO’s under attack and all the chilli padi’s put into the pot to cook up the soup. It seems that former PM Mahathir is holding on to the LADLE ( a large soup spoon) and turning it round to suit his political revenge after 5 years. Now he is also putting Najib at knives edge.

Dr Mahathir urged Najib to call off the idea of skipping the Penanti vote just a day after the new prime minister floated the idea. Not only that Tun now thinks that he is even ready and prepared to lead the BN machinery.He believes he can turn the tables against his arch enemy Anwar’s Pakatan and defeat PKR at its stronghold. Stop short of telling Najib, Mahathirs supporters have been made advances and communicate with Najibs Team of  BN leaders.

It is of course a way of telling Anwar too,don’t think that you have got one over me. The next one that is Penanti I will get you. Mahathir is getting very personal and Najib who says it is a wastage of funds for the country especially with fragile economy knows that whatever decision he makes will be for the better good for BN and the country. Is this really cooking up Malaysia?

Next, the Malacca CM Mohd Ali Rustam is being investigated which can be read in this Malaysiakini article http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/102715  and according to the sources, the veteran politician who was found guilty of money politics by the Umno disciplinary board, is being probed by the commission. Is this really happening too Malaysia as there were many smses sent out yesterday? Lets see how this develops….

Terengganu MB Ahmad Said had to cancel his official 10-day visit to Russia and Ukraine to sort out the mess in Terengganu.Ahmad has come under tremendous pressure from his own party members to relinquish the post.The number of Umno/BN state representatives who want Ahmad to step down now has increased to 18. Until last week the number of elected Umno representatives against Ahmad stood at 10.

So what did the PM Najib  do? PM Najib has given Ahmad one month to prove that he has the support to lead the state. Failing which you know what will happen..and then and then and then…So Malaysia isn’t this all simmering nicely in the NEW PM’s COOKING POT. He will have to solve all these and quell all disatisfaction from within UMNO quickly and chop, chop, chop and make sure it stays as a flavour only for the SOUP in the POT. ARE WE EXPECTING TOO MUCH TOO SOON..??

We say as always,”No one when he takes over the leadership of any country will have it easy and Najib will be the better of with problems first rather than later. Many before him has experiences to tell….So Malaysia its COOKING UP…. 

Penanti Seat “Dr.M Axe Wielder”

It’s very clear. Najib has played his cards on the Penanti seat while Anwar has gladly accepted and  he was happy if BN did not contest. But Dr.Mahathir seems to have his axe in between the throats of Najib and Anwar. Mahathir does not want UMNO to throw in the towel to Pakatan.

He could have taken it in if it was anyone else but he has a bone or two to pick with Anwar still. These words from Dr.M,”Barisan Nasional should not throw in the towel and withdraw from contesting the Penanti by-election as it would give the impression that the party is weak.

This would disappoint its supporters, especially those in the constituency, said former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir.He said Barisan should not surrender even if the seat was in the Opposition’s hands, adding that he was against the idea that the ruling coalition should only contest in areas where it was strong.

“If it (the Penanti state constituency) was in an Umno area, I am sure that we will contest. However, since it is in an Opposition area, we do not want to contest.

“But if we wait to contest only in Umno areas, then there would not be any Umno’s areas and we would not have to contest anywhere.

  • So where does this leave Najib?
  •  Is he just going to ignore Tun and make his own stand after consultation with the other BN partners?
  • Will this decision of not wasting public funds elevate his image ?
  • Will opting out make him playing second fiddle to Anwar’s political propaganda? 
  • Will Najib just ignore Mahathir?
  •  What happens next if Najib ignores Tun?

We say as always,”When the Grand Old man of Malaysian Politics makes a statement very few will survive if they go against him. Let’s see how Najib handles this to stay afloat…

Another By-Election “Bored Already..??”

Democracy does work in Malaysia. If the ADUN or MP dies in office a byelection will be called and held. When a political  party feels that their man has underperformed or tainted with corrupt practises he has to relinquish his posts and a by election is also the answer. If the MACC does its work without interferences there will certainly be YEAR LONG by elections till 2013 when its due. Will this happen..???

This is the HOME TRUTH now as Malaysia looks forward to be a developed nation by 2020. This is the new phenomena which will be used by all political parties and also the coalitions of BN or Pakatan. Why..?? Surely its another way of generating interests and also to STAY RELEVANT.

Political propaganda and momentum is always needed when the calvary is moving towards a focal destination. In this case Pakatan is all out to ensure that by 2013 whichever is earlier their forces are kept intact,ready to battle and also kept useful.

 These are the winter months for Pakatan as the country goes through the economic crisis.The government has promised stimulus packages which will keep those associated with  BN happy for the time being. Pakatan will find ways also to derail the momentum of the BN government as the new PM sells his concept of 1Malaysia.

PM Najib has the 1 Malaysia while Anwar as opposition leader has ‘A New Dawn in Malaysia”.Will the people or constituents of Penanti buy these concepts from these two gentleman? We know their election machineries will be down on the ground trying to WOO the voters to vote for their man. Will Penanti see  “maggi-mee” development and promises as usual? N29 Batang Ai saw the state government throwing down $70million as a carrot for the constituents. It seems the people are already “BORED” with the by elections unless its necesary.

audie61 did a political survey and we found some answers which are not new.

  • 1. Enough of wasting tax payers money.
  • 2. All this political games are just to egoistic for the parties concerned.
  • 3.Why can’t Pakatan wait for 2013 and realise their dreams?
  • 4. The economy is already bad and its not the appropriate time for by elections.
  • 5. Stop this! 6 byelections in one year! Laughing stock of the world lah!
  • 6. Who cares who wins”Boring already” 

Even Malaysiakini portal has already covered this subject with Najib saying too many by elections while Anwar hits back in this article http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/102620 In that case, give us a walkover. Will this end soon? Nope,it will carry on until the dusts settles after the Penanti state assemblyman is sworn in.

Whether the people who we have questioned are bored already it will be up to Penanti voters 15, 241 who will call the shots. Don’t tell me they will all protests and don’t come out to vote? If that does happen that will be a message to both BN and Pakatan? of course,it will be mosts unlikely but stranger things have happened in Malaysia.

It seems PKR has started early as they have identified a senior member for the Penanti by elections. BN will of course identify their own candidate and we shall even see independants joining in.

The country has expressed itself  that we have had enough of by elections and many are also saying its boring and the parties concerned should wait for General Election. This we say is a new phoenomena and we have to live and accept it. If we are looking towards the two party system this is nothing new. BN has been ruffled eversince 308 and they have to look over their shoulders now more than ever. Pakatan will play to the gallery obviously.

We must also realise that BN has been in power for over 50 years and to be jolted on 308 it takes time for them to recover. The opposition parties have tasted defeats many times and its easier for them to swallow unlike the BN parties. Bored or not Bored the democratic process has to be carried out and Penanti will see a by election.

We say as always,”Let the election commission fix the date for the byelection and lets see whether Malaysians are BORED or Not..?? That’s for sure that most conversations will have a little coverage of Penanti…hmmm
