Tick Tock! Tick Tock! The clock is indeed ticking down fast as Malaysia awaits for the GE14. There are many aspirants to the coveted seat and to be chosen as a candidate. It is no different for the BN candidacy of Saratok Parliament.
Has the 3 aspiring lobbyists done enough to win the peoples hearts,soul and minds?
There are some unpleasant reports from the ground that they are ‘not very much the flavour of the month“ when they try to make inroads into longhouses for their activities. This certainly is a very big blow to them and it does not auger well for PDP for giving them the democratic rights to ‘test the ground to unseat a BN incumbent for Saratok.
The lobbyists are obviously at each others throats trying to outdo each other but forgetting that the people are the ones who are watching their actions. Their movements and activities carried out are haphazardly planned and strategised which will only benefit the opposition.
One cannot point the finger to the Incumbent MP for their failures and rejection by the people in the constituency. He has clearly said this,’It is not our divine right for us 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. ”
Hmmm.”Isn’t it strange that the people have not given them a chance?
Its very awkward for BN as a whole. There seems to be no ‘convergence of thoughts” between them and the people see’s clearly that they are fighting not only an uphill battle but also rolling dices to try to convince the party PDP that they are strong favourites.
Will the people buy this? They also seem so ‘BLURRED OUT” in their target.
Even in their movements they have not ‘uttered anything significantly “bad against” or shown any malice to the opposition. One have to only check with the various organisations/authorities that have covered their ‘democratic lobbying movements”
They do however seem to be more interested in “barking at the incumbent” who is a Barisan Man and in Saratok the BN MP is holding the flag for the Barisan Nasional coalition.
That says it all doesn’t it?
Has Mawan’s activities and reaching out to the people blurred their vision? Mawan’s position is unassailable as his main aim is clearly defined to ensure that P205 remains a BN stronghold. The peoples interest and their needs are his main priorities and he trusts the people who put him there in the first place.
Mawan have reached out to to every sector of society in the Saratok constituency be it masjid,temple,churches ,various women, youth organisations and also to schools plus other establishments. He has toiled and laboured hard which would mean he has ‘put in the shift” That doesn’t come by accident and the 3 lobbyists are playing’catch up”
He truly puts his all for the people and he knows that the people are watching him and they too want Saratok to develop further with him at the helm.
Are there any other reasons to even contemplating of ‘elbowing the BN incumbent out?”
Mawan who subscribes to Sun Tzu knows that very well,”Foreknowledge must be obtained from men who know the enemy situation” He has outreached to the Saratok constituents for the last 5 years and he makes it his point to be there in person when activities are being organised by the people unless otherwise.
BN hierarchy know its crucial that the people remain with the incumbent and they will not rock the boat unnecessary for selfish and personal agendas.
Mawan has significantly paved the way for BN on a steady ‘PLATEAU”.
BN will want to keep it that way instead of having to scale a mountain of sharp edged rocks to win over the people of Saratok.
The people have put their trusts to Mawan as their Parliamentarian and he has delivered in his first term. It is not easy to win the hearts and minds of Saratok constituents and Mawan knows that.
He will do all he can to SUSTAIN THE TRUST that the people have in him and in the ruling BN coalition.
