In 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.
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.
