Mawan”Only To Legitimize…”

Every political parties main aim when they enter the Elections Fray are to win. It is no exception even to the coalition partners of Barisan Nasional ,Pakatan Harapan,other  non aligned political parties and independent candidates for GE14 Malaysia. There are so many factors and criteria’s to meet and be considered before a final decision is reached.

mawan1181There are a lot of horse trading involved too and unless the names appear on the nomination forms to be submitted for now one can only speculate. There are “many instances” too when names are changed even at the last minute before entering the election halls and affixing the signatures in front of the nomination officer.

The thousands of individuals involved in, prior to the GE14 are all ‘HOPEFULS” to be State Assemblyman or Members of Parliament. Every constituency have their obstacles and also their challenges to win.

It is no different to Mawan? Has he done enough? 

To his ardent supporters and the constituents in the Parliamentary seat of Saratok he has done more than his fair share in working the ground.meeting the peoples expectations and being their voice for the Greater Good of Saratok constituency.

He is the only BN Direct Parliamentarian and State Assemblyman who is very much aligned to the Barisan Nasional Coalition. He doesn’t come as a package of being a ‘greenhorn‘ in politics but with a bagful of experience under his resume having served as Sarawak State Senior Minister plus being a former President of BN/SPDP which he helmed from 2002 to 2015 for 12years. He resigned as President of TERAS (BN friendly party) as he was chosen as a BN direct candidate prior to the state elections in 2016.

When audie61 wrote ‘Don’t Destroy the Fort 205 ” https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/08/25/dont-destroy-the-fort-p205/  Mawan  did not minced his words in informing the BN Hierarchy that the “THREAT” was real from the opposition. Does he need to score “Brownie Points?” Obviously, one would not let him  bow down to that level to just ‘shout from the mountain top” and even cry wolf.

The PM and CM Sarawak knows the level of commitment,dedication and loyalty that Mawan has portrayed to BN and the following extracted words below are very significant in the final decision for BN to legitimize the candidacy.

“The Incumbent MP knows that the party PDP has the 3 lobbyists making their presence felt in the area and he ‘wished them well,encourages them as it is their democratic right but he reminded them that there is line that they should not cross.They must not elbow out the incumbent in this BN stronghold and on top of that not even WEAKENING the opposition. The lobbyists must also not play in the hands of the opposition.”

Mawan is very entrenched,fully anchored and has the winnability momentum for BN in Saratok and his legitimate candidacy will go down well with both the BN ADUNS and the majority support to fend off the opposition making any inroads to this BN Parliamentarian stronghold.

This upcoming election eventhough in Saratok must not be taken lightly and the Chairman of BN knows it is “not business as usual” and  BN needs to consolidate all component parties,fine tune the election machinery and ensure winnability for BN.

The two state seats in Saratok “Kalaka,Kabong are under BN while Krian is under PKR”. Much have been written about the PKR assemblyman and he would have his wish fulfilled if Incumbent Mawan is not even in the election fray.

His formidable ‘ego” was dented as he was beaten by Mawan. Statistics doesn’t lie and Mawan secured 11,600 votes against Ali’s 9,519 votes to score a majority of 2,081 votes. Ali polled 5388 votes when he defeated the BN/SPDP Kilat Beriak candidate in the state election 2016 by 1,640 votes.

It will not be difficult for PKR to defeat anyone else besides Mawan and Ali would be the first to celebrate. Clearly, Ali is waiting for that chance and he will ensure that without Mawan in the picture he will secure for PKR a much awaited a ‘Rural Sarawak Parliamentary seat

Mawan knows its only a formality when the time comes and it could be done through any component party. It’s anyone’s guess which party will Mawan be heading to and we are sure that its anyone of the 13 BN component parties of which more favourable towards a Sarawak based party.”

PKR or Pakatan Harapan would love to have him in their stable but to those who knows Mawan well enough they know he is indeed a BN loyalist. Even the deputy BN Chairman and DPM Zahid in our previous article “New Yardstick” have indicated clearly in support of the PM and Barisan Nasional Chairman.

AyardstickHaving said that, Mawan will ultimately pen his signature according to the wishes of the BN hierarchy to ensure that Saratok will remain a BN stronghold for now and for the Foreseeable Future.

PDP President Tiong would want the FIRST BITE OF THE CHERRY and he himself would welcome Mawan back with open arms if BN so decides that “Winnability and Loyalty” has given Mawan the right to be renominated as BN candidate to win the parliamentary seat for BN.

The words of the late CM Sarawak in his foreword in “REFLECTIONS”said that Mawan has “earned a rightful place in the mainstream politics of Barisan Nasional. He also displays a LEADERSHIP that is moderate and accommodating and is able to rise above intrigues to relate to the picture of good politics.

Barisan Nasional knows its Loyal members and Legitimising Mawans candidacy should be formalised when all due intelligence and accounts have been thoroughly scrutinised and considered.

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.

“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.

 

“The Winning Components Saratok Parliament”

amawan182011 Ali Biju of PKR won Krian against an Assistant Minister by 2090 votes and sent a shiver through and down the spine of BN. It was a wake up call for BN.

The Parliamentary election of 2013 was a testing time for the candidate who was going to be fielded. BN was in sixes and sevens and the intelligence gathered knew that Saratok Parliamentary seat would fall in the hands of PKR if nothing concrete is done.

Mawan was chosen above all other aspiring and the incumbent from SPDP by the Top BN hierarchy. Mawan was the President of SPDP and Assemblyman from Pakan and one would have thought the party machinery and component party members would be strongly behind him. It was otherwise.

Mawan had to import forces from outside  Saratok to campaign for and fight alongside him. The Components and Functionality was not in place to run an election and to win against the opposition. There was so much missing.

Kabong was not even delineated and Kalaka was also unconvinced and sceptical of a Pakan assemblyman going for a Parliamentary seat. All sorts of multiple factors rumour mongering ,backstabbing ,infighting plus BN unfulfilled promises were the order of the day. It’s a completely different ball game against a Krian PKR assemblyman who was on a “high” after defeating a state assistant minister in Peter Nyarok.

Election 2013 Mawan had to match-up and also play catch up with Ali Biju with all the Giant Billborads that PKR have erected to swing the voters to PKR side. The amount of PKR paraphernalia was substantial in a supposedly BN stronghold.

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.

All done and dusted and Mawan 11,600 votes against Ali’s 9,519 votes to score a majority of 2,081 votes. Mawan knows his tasks had just begun.

He said: “I have to start working right away as the people of Saratok have given me the mandate. The victory for BN also means that the majority of the people want uninterrupted development.”

Has Mawan fulfilled all his promises to date? Where are his Missing components?

Mawan have worked tirelessly and reached out to the people of Saratok and has won the peoples hearts and has the TRUSTS OF BOTH the assemblyman of Kabong and Kalaka. The components were not in place and he too knows that Krian remains a very sore spot for BN.

Mawan knows that he has to win the hearts and minds of the community leaders,wanita and youth of the area. His man on the ground have worked extensively in the opposition dominated State area of Krian

amawan19It is beginning to bear fruit and in one of the functions recently at Rumah Junaidee ak Melina the presence of many community leaders and the speeches which they delivered were music to the ears not only to Mawan but also to his supporters.

Mawan with his inborn charisma ,tirelessly working the ground,non confrontational.non hatred and no animosity towards his detractors have captivated the minds and hearts of the larger Saratok people.

The Krian Saratok community leaders present for the record that day were

  • Penghulu Ali ak.Bin (Awik)
  • Penghulu Anyom ak. Kinyeh (Ulu Krian)
  • Penghulu Latan ak.Ambau (Kabo)
  • Penghulu Isa ak.Geng (Sebetan)
  • Penghulu Garan Chunggot (Krian Tengah)

Also present was Penghulu Empetie from the Kalaka Area. The speech by Janang Ensiring ( a research officer from Tun Jugah Foundation) was very inspiring and he has made Mawan all the more geared up to serve another term as a Saratok Parliamentarian.

Mawan will not take anything forgranted and he knows that Ali Biju will want another shot at this parliamentary seat sooner rather than later. Ali knows that Mawan has a great team now.

Mawan did not have it right away but he build the forces around him and developed it. Mawan has managed to motivate,reinforced and made the team support each other in the Saratok Parliamentary connstituency.

Mawan is hands on,resilient,has a never-say-die attitude and his charm plus charisma has won many in the Saratok area to continue to vote for him.

The CHEMISTRY is there for all to see and Mawan’s WINNING COMPONENTS are collectively standing side by side and practically behind him all the way to retain the Saratok seat

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.

 

 

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.
