“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

Saratok “Spirit of Acceptance and Tolerance”

aspiritIn all the Parliamentary seats there will be intensified lobbying by the respective party and the lobbyists for the right and the ticket to stand on behalf of the Barisan Nasional coalition. Its only natural as its democracy being practised but there must be certain rules to adhere and RESPECT must be shown at all times.

The BN Chairman has talked earnestly about Loyalty and Winnability for the candidates to be chosen for GE14. At the recent press conference after chairing the Barisan Nasional Supreme Council another important criteria which he said and must be added in was the”Peoples choice and the Peoples Will” should be the prevailing consideration.

Saratok Parliamentary seat has been a very hot topic as the incumbent is an Independant BN Parliamentarian and also an ADUN for Pakan.

Mawan was President of SPDP party which he represented on behalf of BN and stood as candidate in GE13 defeating the PKR’s “heavy weight and giant killer” YB N39 Krian in Ali Biju. Many were pessimistic in his prospects in 2013 when he took on Ali Biju as Mawan went to “uncharted territory” as a Parliamentarian Candidate even though he was a State Full Minister and won numerous state elections. Winning for Mawan doesn’t guarantee anything as SPDP has now reiterate that the seat belongs to them.

Does SPDP now (PDP) have a choice now with all the truth surfacing on their Lobbyists?

BN will quietly whisper sweet nothings in the ear of President Tiong and inform him in the ‘nicest possible way’ that Mawan still holds the key to retain Saratok for the ruling coalition.

Truth be told, until recently it was very much SPDP but now the party has since changed its stand from a Sarawak based party and now its a National party with its membership open to all “Malaysians’ and also now has taken “Sarawak” out from its name to be rebranded as Progressive Democratic Party (PDP)

With the upcoming GE14 there are 3 PDP individuals named by the party to carry the fight for the party to retain Saratok.

HAVE THEY DONE A GOOD JOB ON THE GROUND?

If they have there would certainly be “Silent Treatment” from all staunch BN supporters,the YB’s in the area of Saratok and the related ruling government agencies towards the MP205 William Mawan.

One might want to recall some earlier articles which was covered and certainly they will not only dampen the spirit of the lobbyists but also make the people on the ground having second thoughts on their intentions and selfish needs.

Will BN let the lobbyists continue their movements or put a stop to it ?

It is not our divine right for to divulge in details and morover it is also within their ‘democratic rights” to continue but they do need to know when they hit a road block. BN will not be easily deceived though and for them to gain sympathy through the party leaves a lot to be desired.

Mawan has been quoted in 2015 “There is a possibility for us to be reunited with SPDP.But there is a possibility for us to be united with PRS and PBB. There will be options.”

By the looks of it Mawan is fighting very much to consolidate all his efforts for BN to retain the Parliamentary seat of Saratok. He doesn’t even hide behind the cloak and even have mentioned,”if I am not around for some reason or another he sees that the 2 present YBs as much better prospect in YB Wahab Aziz or YB Mohamad Chee bin Kadir as more loyal and winnable than the 3 lobbyists.”

The 2 YBs have been seen in many official functions together with their Member of Parliament and its very healthy for the BN spirit of acceptance and tolerance.

amawan12

Mawan has consistently been harping the same tune to the voters of Saratok and his momentum is being seen and applauded by the top BN hierarchy. He has always puts Barisan Nasional first and his fight is not for any political parties but for all. He knows and understand the consequences of BN seat falling in the hands of the opposition and the people of Saratok will inevitably suffer silently in the wilderness.

Mawan himself practises multi racialism and though his constituency has over 70 percent dayak voters he doesn’t leave any race behind. They voted me in and as voters of Saratok and he wants to ensure that everyone will ‘work together“.The spirit must be there he said and it surpasses all “RACIAL BOUNDARIES

Mawan has instill the BN Spirit and Unity at the grass root level and it has reflected well in the eyes of the local Saratok peole who will no doubt put their trust and confidence in him to carry on for another term in Parliament.

MAWAN HAS  EARNED THEIR RESPECT

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.

 

 

Sympathiser for PKR for BN P205 Saratok?

subengLet’s not be mean ,”wolf in sheep’s skin?”. However in this day and age politics is such that one have to be judgemental and ensure that the worthy candidate fits the bill to stand as a candidate. Our sources have informed us that there were once closely associated with and have close ties with PKR the opposition camp in Saratok.

Do we need to be robot scientist to work out this out?

Surely, PDP hierarchy must have checked the background of all 3 lobbyists to be a candidate for Barisan Nasional ? A senior PDP even have to answer to a netcitizen claim which in itself does hold some political truth on the matter.  http://www.theborneopost.com/2017/07/12/igai-denies-saratok-aspirants-members-of-opposition-party/

On another note an Emeritus Professor said,”As a political party PDP seems to be “Deliberately Blinded” to create some political inconvenience so as to ensure that the seat belongs to PDP and not to other coalition partners or individuals.

The MP Incumbent is a former President of SPDP and he is still very much a BN Member of Parliament. He remains true to the concept of BN and has never wavered from his stand which the PM and DPM acknowledges as plus points for a candidade for BN in GE14.

Mawan himself  is consistent with his desire to step down at the end of the next parliamentary term. He even said that he as not interested in any position in the party he once led.

Do we need to polish it up more and add pepper plus other spices to it?

Meanwhile the President of PDP Tiong King Sing knows too well that he has a trump card if the need arises. Has he been playing with fire? Ali Biju PKR Assemblyman for Krian is so entrenched in the state seat and he will not have any hesitation to face off with anyone besides the Incumbent. This is extracted from Ali Biju’s twitter,“Official Twitter account for Ali Biju, PKR assemblyman for N.34 Krian and currently running for Parliament P.205 Saratok”

Let’s not deliberate further and its a known fact that there are many selfish individuals within PDP and President Tiong himself must stop this nonsensical lobbying for the sympathisers of PKR to have an upperhand in P205 for GE14.

The 4 Incumbents MP s in Tiong,Mawan,Anyi,Nogeh are all very winnable for BN. Mawan himself knows that its going to be a tough outing for BN in GE14 and has always practised the Principle of No.1 Party is BN System of Governance and N0.2 would be the party that he is in.

He does not hide behind the sheep skin and he has always put BN’s interest above self and he would not tarnish the image of BN in whatever manner. He has Saratok’s continuity in his heart and he plans to see it out till the end of the term for GE14.

Subeng with his 32 years of experience in corporate administration and management should wait for his chance to prove to the BN leadership and stay as an intern to Mawan and ready for GE15. The experience and youthful partnership which Mawan and Tiong has will benefit BN in totality and if Subeng Mula is willing to wait for the chance he will stand to handsomely impart from the tutelage of the incumbent MP with his years of experience.

Tiong would be seen as an outstanding President in the eyes of the Barisan leadership in the State and in Federal. He must be seen to have uncovered an unpolished diamond.  Mawan would also be instrumental to bring together the rival factions for the benefit of the constituency of Saratok.

Krian was lost to PKR and the defeated BN candidates of Peter Nyarok in 2011 and Kilat Beriak in 2016 was due to disunity in its rank and file. This was even highlighted by the local daily,”The reason Barisan Nasional (BN) lost in the Krian constituency in the previous two state elections was disunity within the ruling coalition which led to sabotage from among its own rank and not because it failed to deliver its promises as claimed by the opposition.”

One in the end has to prove his worth to BN and Subeng Mula knows very well that the BN leadership on this occasion of GE14 would only pick the winnable and loyal candidate. He stands a very good chance to be an MP after Mawan calls it a day in GE15 and only have to put up a BRAVE FACE and let BN find a ‘common ground” to win this seat instead of handing the seat on a platter to the opposition in PKR.

The wolf in sheep skin tag would be wiped clean of the slate if Subeng knows that politics is not only for today but its an ongoing process. Experience and wisdom is a forte in politics and Mawan would be most willing to share one of his favourite quote,”No leader should put troops into the field merely to gratify his own spleen; no leader should fight a battle simply out of pique. But a kingdom that has once been destroyed can never come again into being; nor can the dead ever be brought back to life. Hence the enlightened leader is heedful, and the good leader full of caution.
– Sun Tzu

BN Top Leadership would be very cautious and the winnable seats would not be sacrificed for any party or any individuals selfish needs.

“New Yardstick”-BN Zahid Hamidi

The Message is Clear and Precise. No Hidden Agenda.

AyardstickWas it an “Inspired and a Motivational call“? Many, though will conveniently termed it as a “War Cry” by Zahid who is (acting)Deputy President of UMNO to his party. It is however very clear in the BN organisational structure he automatically takes the helm as the Deputy Barisan Nasional Chairman. As such, Zahid is now Echoing and Standing Firm behind his President on the above subject.

What is significantly of utmost important to Barisan Nasional Chairman Najib and his Deputy Zahid are the seats that are Winnable and Secured are not being destroyed by personal and party selfishness which will cause more harm than good to the overall margin of BN seats.

In the last Parliamentary elections Sarawak garnered 25 out of 31 seats. PBB,PRS and SPDP all scored 100% wins and SUPP paid the price for their “infighting” and the voters turned against the party in the urban areas. They lost miserably garnering only 1  seat out of a possible 7.

Its now a game changer for Sarawak BN.

SUPP and UPP are still  very much seen “publicly” as feuding even though their top leaders are trying their political best to be embracing each other for the better good of BN. The strong message by Zahid has started to trickle down and the Deputy BN Chairman will want to ensure that BN Sarawak remains a fortress. BN/SUPP and BN friendly UPP need to work out a formula or else it would be up to the hierarchy of BN to put their foot down and resolve this issue. audie61 does not want to dwell too much on this matter as there will be calls of “outside interference”    

However, we are well informed on the subject matter of SPDP. There has been too many   niggling disagreements and petty mistrust which has seen the party veered and broken up into a number of disjointed groups. The Party President Tiong is doing his best to lead the charge but he is sometimes and still very “misinformed” by the ground swell.

Tiong P217 (Bintulu) himself is kept well aware of the many programmes being held in the other 3 Parliamentary seats of P192( Mas Gading) P205 (Saratok) and P220 (Baram). Lately,there have been very clear noises of the incumbents being dropped which has literally hurt many of the supporters who worked hard for SPDP during GE13. The incumbents have been working the ground and are relentless to maintain the stranglehold for Barisan Nasional and not to fulfill their selfish ends.

The moral of the party is important and Najib and Zahid are trying their level best to ensure that the spirit of BN will be intact when GE14 is called.  Both Najib and Zahid will not want to see a dysfunctional party where ‘infighting” will go overboard and cause BN the seats. Likewise the New CM Abang Johari  in his maiden parliamentary election charge for BN Sarawak will also want a comfortable win.

We have written earlier (https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/06/05/a-formidable-and-winnable-bn-quartet/ )  that the 4 incumbents are a formidable and winnable quartet and we have not wavered from our assessment.anajibjo

The words by two incumbents below are as solid for Tiong to digress and not even stop to consider “Who else can be better than them?

Mawan’s words ,” I am fully Entrenched in Servicing Saratok and I am not taking a step backward. I have moved so far and therefore it is almost impossible to make a RETREAT.”

Anyi’s words,”called on his supporters to be patient and wait for the announcement on whether he would get to defend the Baram seat for Barisan Nasional (BN) in the coming 14th general election. He said it is necessary that they should wait for the ‘green light’ from the prime minister, who is the national BN chairman.

Of course there will be a number of aspirants and also ‘backed up lobbyists” for the 3 seats which Tiong as President himself knows too well. This is “fully expected” in the run up to any elections but for GE14 the BN top leaders would want ‘minimum damage” to the coalition within BN.

The words written down,extracted and posted here by a contributor in FB James Joshua also have defining meaning to winning an election.

“Tan Sri William Mawan Ikom execute his desktop planning well and the other lobbyists needs to do a lot of catching up to determine the most winnable and likeable candidate for Saratok.

Pre-election head count is crucial for all the lobbyists including the incumbent, to determine their winnability; because head count is one of the yardstick to the number of votes that the candidate will get on polling day.

Tiong as President will want the BN to win the 4 seats which Najib, Zahid,Abang Jo has entrusted him to oversee and politically he will DEFINITELY STAND TALL if he agrees to the name list of maintaining the 4 Winnable and Formidable Quartet.

In Politics nothing is impossible and all disagreements can be solved with political tact and negotiations.

There are some disgruntled BN members who have crossed the red line and are now fighting BN from the opposite side. The Yardstick portrayed  by the BN leaders in Najib,Zahid and Abang Jo is now is stick to the principles of winnability and to venture too far adrift it will have serious consequences.

Mawan does put it nicely at times to budding politicians who called upon him for advise,’whether in good or bad times,our support for the BN must remain unwavering and our loyalty to the BN leadership solidly entrenched.”

Tiong will want to make the right effective decision and will not want to waver too far from the BN leaders yardstick or he might just live to regret the actions he took.

Paul,”Missed Opportunity” Mawan,”Effective Decision”

1spdp.jpgThe President of PDP Tiong have finally been ‘smoked out of his fox hole‘ by the interview conducted by Borneo Posts Peter Sibon.

Tiong as President, says a former youth member.”he has to come out with a statement or say something to appease the party loyalists and aspirants or they will all lost hope of their lobbying for their “traditional seats”for GE14.  Moreover he also touched on Anyi who needs to be work harder to improve his performance and this would not give motivation to yet another incumbent MP.Will Nogeh sail through that is another tricky question?

This is a political decision which PM Najib himself would and could easily advised Tiong,”the quality of  decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon..” However,Najib knows that Tiong is very much in a hurry to wrap up this “imbroglio” and informed his colleagues in BN that all is under control.

He himself is not 100% safe and looking over his shoulders in Bintulu or else he would not have talked about delineation exercise. We know that he won in 2013 with voters of 26458 against DAP John Brian Anthony garnering 19025.

Meanwhile audie61 made two separate phone calls one each to Paul Igai and William Mawan. Paul said its a ‘missed opportunity for reconciliation” as the momentum was there after the Pahang BN retreat. The PM had said in so many words that on Mawan’s case  it had to be done ‘fast”.

When questioned further on Tiong ‘s statement he gave a positive answer as ‘all is not lost” He also mentioned that Mawan would be welcome back with open arms and will not be dropped as an incumbent. Of course Paul knows very well what transpired too in the last state elections when Mawan was fielded as a direct BN candidate.  He also told us that there are too many ‘piranhas” swimming around and lurking around the President.

Before we said thank you for his inputs Paul said,’please read his statement which was published a few days ago.”

If we read it politically PDP would not want this seat to fall to another BN component party. They have every right to claim the traditional seat and the press release is a strong enough statement to justify .

apaul

We managed to track down Mawan who after coming back from Kuala Lumpur made his way to Kabong his MP constituency and now is on his way to Pakan for his DUN duties. audie61 asked him on the newspaper articles which PDP has made and he said ,”

‘I am serving both the people in my constituency and am more interested in getting down to the grassroots than doing petty politicking.

I have been elected to serve and am doing just that. The interest of Barisan Nasional is more important as we approach the GE14 and he said that he is so “entrenched in Saratok” that he will not take a step backward.

His main task is to consolidate all the groupings that exist in Saratok and to ensure that seat remains BN after GE14.

We were informed by our reliable sources that PDP President Tiong has been misinformed and illadvised on the situation on the ground. Mawan said ,’its up to Tiong to camp in Saratok for week or so and find out for himself instead of listening to hearsay’s which will do no good to Barisan Nasional.” He should come unnoticed quietly and he will know the real situation on the ground.

Mawan’s phone was breaking up as reception was not very clear he said,”in any elections, the product of information,analysis and critically the EFFECTIVE DECISION to act is important. This is a”bonus”safe seat for BN as he is the incumbent and he has worked hard to solidfy the seat for BN for GE14.”

Did Tiong make the effective decision and timing or will Tiong live to regret his actions?

Tiong knows the final say will rest with the State BN Chairman Abang Jo and PM Najib as the BN Chairman and for them to Sacrifice “WINNABILITY WITH LOYALTY” with a new and untested candidate is not exactly on their menu.

PM and CM will not want to go on the back foot and knows that Mawan will deliver the seat when called upon. PM himself  came down in 2013 when Mawan was at his lowest peak and he campaigned for Mawan to sail through against a “worthy opponent” in Ali Biju of PKR and other detractors who were hell bent of destroying and finishing off the then SPDP President.

PM Najib and CM Abang Jo will take all this factors into consideration and Paul could not have put it more nicely,”all is not lost

P205 Saratok”One More Term”for Mawan

Ali Biju of  Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR )is waiting in the wings to wrestle this seat away from the noses of BN/SPDP.  In 2013 GE13 William Mawan won this seat and secured 11,600 votes against Ali’s 9,519 votes to score a majority of 2,081 votes.

pmawanEaster has come and gone and very soon it will be Ramadan,Hari Raya and the impending GE14. Najib as the ruling Prime Minister and the Barisan Nasional Commander in Chief is counting the seats and preserving all his winnable candidates to cross the line at 111 out of 222 Parliamentary seats.  Mawan is very much his best bet to have 1 in the bag for Barisan Nasional. He knows that Mawan journey still continues and he is very much a loyal and reliable Barisan member be it in the State or in the Federal level.

Najib always have this in his mind,”Think daily,deeply, and in a disciplined way about strategy, for on that alone is your throne of power preserved and strengthened.  Najib also take notes of  what Mawan has openly said,”there is no alternative to unity. Unity has always been the hallmark of my political crusade since i entered politics more than four decades and it is the foundational nucleus on which politics is premised.”

SPDP President Tiong King Sing is very much a ‘buddy and best friend” to William Mawan. Both of them have gone through many rivers,hills and mountains together since 2002 when the party was founded. Tiong himself will want his Political Elder William Mawan by his side as he sees through the storm of GE14 and win all the 4 seats the party contest. Tiong knows that its no point to have war-mongering factions in this battle and as the President he will need to master the strategy to deliver to Najib the BN commander the 4 seats which the party is assigned to.

All things in nature have an inherent cycle of spring,summer,winter birth,growth,maturity,decline and death. Political differences or war has also a cycle of psychological stages,the wait,preparation,clashes,regret and remorse. Politics is the art of agreement not disagreement and Mawan himself knows that very well.

He hears all the right noises coming from top hierarchy of the ruling party on his experience and patience in dealing with situations. He says to audie61 in this interview,”Don’t Package me out. My experience will be invaluable to the party and to the person who will eventually take over as MP Saratok from SPDP.” He says he needs one more term to ‘tidy it up” for the unity of all younger members who will be eventually join up in SPDP. He says there are many new members who are waiting for his next move and they will not need to wait too long to move to the HOME in SPDP.

There will be differences and distrusts for the new members but eventually political maturity will take the centre stage. With all the upheavels SPDP will come out stronger and more united to face any adversaries.

audie61 remembers a local journalist writing in 2013 on the battle of Saratok,”The fight for the seat will always be remembered as a race between BN and PKR, so fierce and so close till the finishing line. Those with faint hearts probably may not want to experience such excitement again”

Mawan ended the interview with the phrase “Unity” again pointing to the opposition on playing up the issue on Appointment of Hishammuddin as Special Functions Minister. He said even Zahid has consented to the appointment and this is roller coastered into an issue. Mawan said,” Najib is strengthening Barisan Nasional  and with this appointment it will make us stronger. It’s UNITY .”

Saratok P205 is ripe for Ali Biju to wrestle away from BN/SPDP.  Najib being the BN commander knows that President Tiong and Mawan will sit down together soon to sort it out and Look at the BIGGER PICTURE.

One More Term” is the call for Mawan and Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s( PKR) Ali Biju’s dream of being an MP after GE14 will also disappear into the clouds.
