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.
DAP Violet “Oh Please … Flood”
If the Sarawak State Government have not done anything or lifted a finger DAP Pending Assemblyman have every right to issue the statement above. The last few days 18th to 21st February 2016 the amount of rain that has fallen in the Kuching Division even the best drainage system will not be able to contain the gallons of water the rain brought .
The rain waters came down “mercilessly” and the DID engineers had their hands full. The operations centre was “bombarded’ with calls of help and all relevant government departments were working overtime.
During times like these we do hope that COMMON SENSE prevails instead of politicising this matter. Kuchingnites and for that matter Sarawakians are appalled by this statement attached. (Surely, soon we will be hearing that its not my statement and my FB was hacked)
DAP Nga Kor Ming…For Real..???
When Lim Sian See posted the article below he must have his reasons. Well, truth be told if DAP Member of Parliament Nga Kor Ming said that he will certainly be banned to enter the State of Sarawak as CM Adenan does not like bigots,extremists and troublemakers.
Our CM Adenan will ensure that he thoroughly check the facts first as we know he practises,”I always believe that a man is guilty until proven so,if you believe that a man who is guilty the moment he is accused there will be PROBLEM..
Let us all check our facts and stop all the HATRED by being rationale.
The extracted article from the Facebooker…Lim Sian See ( a shoe profile)
” I seldom get angry – especially over online stuff – but i am furious about this.
The most useless MP from DAP strikes again. The page bearing his name which he claims is run by unnamed fans and not by him or DAP, has completely slandered Sarawak CM with a juvenile RBA-level edit to scold Chinese.
MCMC and PDRM should call the MP in and investigate him. The MP must either give up the names of those people running it or report to FB that someone had misused YB Nga’s “good” name to hasut and ask FB to shut down the page.
Actually, many people already have evidence on who is running that page. A certain Chong from Taiping is the culprit and many people know that – so no point to hide.
In any case, the cowardly MP also shared this picture on his personal FB page – thus he can no longer deny that he does not know about this:https://www.facebook.com/ngakorming/posts/10205717980012162
DAP people are a bunch of racist idiots who will also use race issues to incite anger and hate.
Why are these idiots still free to keep inciting hatred among the people? What is MCMC and PDRM doing?
Don’t be surprised or act in mock surprise if Sarawak also bans your sorry ass for going to their state.
I hope the Chinese in Sarawak can see this and reject DAP for their continuous racist politicking and teach them a lesson.
WE CHINESE SARAWAKIANS WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO IF MCMC AND PDRM TAKE THE NECESSARY ACTION AND PUNISH THE CULPRIT.
DO YOU HONESTLY THINK WE WILL LET DAP NGA KOP MING GET AWAY WITH IT FOR THE HATRED AND RACIAL POSTER?
WE SARAWAKIANS ARE PEACE LOVING AND LIVE HARMONIOUSLY AMONGST ALL THE RACES. WE DETEST TROUBLEMAKERS,BIGOTS AND EXTREMISTS TOO VERY MUCH LIKE CM ADENAN.
Open Up,Masing Tells Ibans
Article extracted from Borneo Posts on line
Ibans should not remain parochial but instead be more open.
Land Development Minister Tan Sri Datuk Amar Dr James Masing, who is also Baleh assemblyman, said they should open up so as not to put restrictions on themselves.
“The Iban mentality which only allows for a candidate from their respective constituency to contest restricts Iban human resource from being fully harnessed in politics.
“For example, only an Iban from Baleh is tolerated to stand as candidate for Baleh state constituency. This strong regionalistic feeling restricts good lban or Dayak leaders from contesting in other areas,” he pointed out.
He gave this advice when launching ‘Persatuan Warga Emas Kapit’ and ‘Leaders with the people’ programme organised by the Welfare Department that was held at Rumah Ngiang, Nanga Sepako, Sungai Majau, Baleh recently.
The two-day programme was to launch the association and encourage those above 55 years old to take up a healthy lifestyle.
“The Malays or Chinese voters don’t put such restriction on themselves. Thus, mobility in politics exists among them and their leaders are fully used. Any good leader from these groups can stand in any constituency and win.
“For example, Lim Kit Siang, DAP member of Parliament, stood in Johor, away from his home area. He could also win,” he pointed out.
“Until the Dayaks reduce their strong regionalistic feelings, we as communities, will not be able to tap fully into our political human resources. The Dayaks in general, haven’t learnt to abide by leaders’ decision.
“The tendency to question and later go against their leaders’ decision, to prove their point, becomes a hindrance to Dayak political cohesiveness. The element of trust to those in authority is not there yet among the Dayaks,” he added.
Marudi…”Very Intense Lobbying”
“The incumbent Marudi assemblyman will be the Barisan Nasional ( BN) candidate in the next election as there has been no changes so far in the announcement by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Adenan Satem in Marudi on two occasions last year.”
The above statement came from Vice-President of PBB and a Senior Minister in Adenan’s Administation in Awang Tengah. Our political analyst says that.” it does seem a losts cause for Dr Penguang Manggil, the former permanent secretary to Local Government and Community Development Ministry,”
He has been identified by SPDP as their candidate to represent the party. The lobbyists for SPDP have been active in the cyberspace and they have concentrated their aims at TERAS/UPP seats for fear that the incumbents are the wants picked by CM Sarawak Adenan.
Adenan himself have made it clear,”It’s all about WINNABILITY for BN and precisely what that means it is the candidate must be acceptable,responsible and reliable to the coalitions cause of the WINNING THE SEAT .
It is not wrong to lobby but sometimes the reports that filter back to the CM’s department have been very “gung-ho” and to make matters worse the noises that comes from the ceramahs are very disturbing. The lobbyists who speaks at the ceramahs knows what have been said and they know some of their words used will come back to haunt their lobbied candidate. Continue reading
All Will be Settled
Much have been said about seat distribution. Only CM Sarawak and the BN hierarchy can settle it at the “Round Table”. There has been too much slagging and dirty linens thrown at each other between Barisan Component parties and their BN friendly counterparts. Certainly it does not look “HEALTHY” as sporadic infighting will only jeopardize the preparations.
The Bigger picture is getting a FRESH mandate for Barisan Nasional Sarawak under the New Man on top and that is Adenan Satem. The enemy is not within and a senior political leader have echoed this sentiment as he is doing his utmost to keep the “warring factions” on a leash or else all hell will break loose. This will be very detrimental to the Barisan Nasional and the saying.”CRISIS means OPPORTUNITIES must not be ignored and it iwill be capitalised and cashed in by the Opposition Fronts.
Adenan will be RUTHLESS at the best of times when he needs to be and he will not let it get out of hand. He has been harping on “GIVE ME 5 MORE YEARS” which in itself is a double edged sword. He is after all the appointed Chief Minister until he has the FRESH MANDATE he is still under the rule of the thumb from the former boss.
This is the truth and nothing will stop Adenan from moving his Political Road Map to suit his next 5 years and the way his administration on how Sarawak will be governed.
Whatever and Whoever stands in his way as he battles through will be dropped or realigned. His inner circles will whisper sweet nothings to his ears but he will carefully go through the lists until he is certain of the peoples representative candidates who have the “Winnability/Credibility and Likebility” to win their respective seats. Remember Adenan was the Chief Hatchet Men under the former CM and as such he knows the way to SCORE A GOAL and win instead of kicking into an own goal.
It will be SETTLED sooner rather than later and Adenan will see to that. Believe Me and all the BN Component leaders will sleep easy soon as Adenan has the final jigsaw …
Your Guess is as Good as Mine
The gloves are now coming off as the lobbying intensifies for all aspiring candidates. Both BN Sarawak and the opposition parties camps are leaving no stones upturned. Only when the CM Sarawak makes an official visit to the Governor we will all still be unsure of the dissolution of the DUN.
We live in interesting times dont we ?
“ENCROACHMENT into BN/SUPP Designated Seat. ?”
UPP have no choice whatsoever but to create a ” hoo-haa” and a “huge wave” in order to wrestle the candidacy from BN/SUPP says a popular political figure familiar with the Batu Kawa constituency.
What was however very disturbing was the statement put up by Jerip Susil,”admitting that winning Batu Kawah state constituency would be a challenging task for UPP in the coming state elections, that as time goes by the people would believe the sincerity and struggle that is for all races and religion.”
What was he trying to say? Why are you still saying challenging task? If he was a hardworking PEMANCA surely the people would not blink an eye but to vote him against the DAP incumbent Christina?
Even UPP President has outlined 4 qualities which outlines him to be a good leader and candidate for the state constituency of Batu Kawa. Wong even spoke on what Liu has done over the years, the party was very confident that he would be one of the most winnable candidate. Hold on here, says our political figure,” didn’t Liu say this,”I remember when I was entrusted with this difficult task of setting up this branch.I was not confident at all and I was worried.”
Wasn’t he an SUPP Pemanca? Such contradictory statements?
This will be one of the points which the State Barisan Nasional committee would have to look into.
SUPP does have a “winnable candidate” in current Chairman of Padawan Municipal Council in Lo Khere Chiang who have been serving the area of jurisdiction since 2008.
There have been hardly any complaints of his sloppiness, high handedness or arrogance. He has been quietly working into the hearts and minds of the people in the area which he was entrusted to look into. He is very much a party man and a true loyalists to the party even though many are “pouring oil to the fire” and saying he is not ‘cut to withstand the DAP onslaught unlike Liu who will be able to fight tooth and nail against DAP.
The political figure even said,”Liu has resigned as a Pemanca and now going full time and on what grounds will he use now for the next few months to go about assisting the people of Batu Kawa? Will he be using the party to force his way with the authorities? Surely, he has jumped the gun thinking that he is the most winnable candidate? What’s more the CM Adenan has mentioned most winnable incumbents didn’t he? Is Liu an incumbent for that matter and moreover the party is outside the Barisan Nasional?
UPP candidates of Wong Soon Koh, Jerip Susil, Johnnicol Rayong, Ranum Mina should concentrate on their seats instead of Encroaching into SUPP designated areas. UPP Vice Chairman and Youth Chief Johnicol Rayong on April 13th 2015 said,”said it was state BN chairman cum Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem who broke the news about retaining them as BN candidates in the next state polls”.
It does seem that UPP is going after all the 19 seats which SUPP has laid claimed upon. Its going to be a war zone as the other 3 BN parties have gone for “one for all and all for one”
Lo Khere Chiang will let his actions do the talking and he will not be deterred by all the politicking that his surrounding his quests for the most winnable candidate. He knows that CM Adenan wants to win Batu Kawa as DAP only scrapped through in the last elections after an Assistant Minister Tan Joo Pooi losts to a first timer Christina Chiew by 543 votes. Batu Kawa used to be a stronghold for SUPP and Adenan knows that the winnable candidate he has in mind does need to weave the magic wand from his hand.
The battle lines are drawn and Lo will need Tan Joo Pooi and the SUPP hierarchy on his side if he is picked. Liu for all his keeness and “hoo-hahs” will need to sit back and give a helping hand to BN SUPP or he will say ‘goodbye” to his political dreams of being a YB or an MP. Adenan will not minced his words when the time comes and he will pick his most winnable,suitable and credible candidate for this Batu Kawa State seat.
Adenan knows to unseat DAP he will need all the factions to compromise for the better good of BN. He will not let this chance slip from his grasps and he would very much want Batu Kawa to be taken back by BN and in the main stream politics.
SPDP or just PDP soon?
A source told audie61 that very soon SPDP will be doing away with ‘S” in front. We asked what’s the reason for that? “Oh, the party is rebranding and its going national. The new symbol will be similar to the shaking hands image. ” Further conversation on SPDP revealed that there are uncertainties and this rebranding process could propel the party to have more prominent politicians joining the bandwagon.
Could the Alexander Asing rumour be true then? Surely, if the party loses its “Sarawak” the Division Chief and his supporters from the hinterland of Marudi would not want to be involved or be associated with bringing a Peninsular entity into the state when the “Sarawak for Sarawakians” passion is so strong at the moment. Moreover, why must SPDP be involved in following PBS a Sabah party extending its wings nationally. Could the party be playing into a political agenda?
Of course, SPDP will deny all this but one must remember,”if there is no wind, the leaves on the trees will not move.” They will also argue , we are united in one mind and heart with the other BN parties going into the state elections and we are also looking into a merger entity with PRS.
Surely, we all know that in politics anything is possible and the most common statement would be “we are doing it for the nation and the people” Isn’t that familiar? Keep informed and our source said if it doesn’t materialise that will only mean ‘its not the right time”
SPDP or PDP its here to stay……
Tussling Begins for the 11 New State Seats
All eyes will be on the 11 New delineated seats when the 11th Sarawak State Elections is called. Both BN and Pakatan Harapan parties will put their cases to their respective coalitions on why their parties should or be allowed to stake a claim for the seats.
It will be politically interesting no doubt but at the end of the day the Rakyat will need to know who will represent them besides the designated party . They will need to weigh all the options as for the next 5 years when they affix their X to the person of their choice. Whoever sits as their representative must know the sentiments, culture, terrain, breakdown, wants, needs and many other factors of the local constituency.
The tussling and lobbying will be on going until the elections are called. Last minute changes have also taken place previously. Until the day of nominations we will still be wondering who and which party stakes the claim for the seats.
Extracted from Bernama
When the parliamentary sitting concludes next month, the 11 new Sarawak state seats are expected to be finalised, and the political parties in the ‘Land of the Hornbills’ can begin talks on whom should best contest in these constituencies.
Out of the 11 seats, three are Malay/Melanau majority areas (Gedong, Kabong and Telian), three Iban majority (Stakan, Selirik and Samalaju), two Orang Ulu majority (Murum and Long Lama), two majority Bidayuh (Serembu and Triboh), and one Chinese majority (Batu Kitang).
Chief Minister Adenan Satem has earlier announced five out of the new seats would be contested by the state Barisan National (BN) component party led by Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu, including the three seats which are predominantly Melayu/Melanau who never failed to give their full support to PBB and BN at every past state election.
Batu Kitang will be a testing ground to see if the “Adenan charismatic factor’ can draw the support of the Chinese given that the problem faced by BN is its component, Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) – the predominantly Chinese party that faced an internal crisis which resulted in the formation of the splinter United People’s Party (UPP).
As Batu Kitang is an area created out of Kota Sentosa and Batu Kawah, which are currently under DAP, the opposition party is expected to make it a battlefield.Maybe unlikely.
This is because another of the opposition pact, PKR has already stake a claim in Batu Kitang and has even submitted several names who are likely to fielded as a candidate there.
Sarawak PKR chairman Baru Bian when contacted said Gerakan Harapan Baru would hold talks to reach a consensus on the distribution of seats when the time comes.He said it was still too early to say which seats would be contested by PKR but it would be in areas that they had worked hard to consolidate support.
In the last state election in 2011, PKR contested in 49 seats but only won three, namely Ba’Kelalan, Batu Lintang and Krian. Previously PKR only has one seat.In the state legislative assembly at present, PBB has 35 seats, SUPP six, Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) six and Sarawak Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) eight. The opposition – DAP has 12 seats and PKR three. There is one Independent.
A piece of the pie
Among the state BN leaders, PRS president James Jemut Masing has voiced his hope to get the Bukit Goram (Selirik) and Murum seats from the 11 new seats.
SPDP senior vice president Paul Igai, when contacted, said the party was eyeing the two Iban majority seats but hastened to add that it was still up to the state BN top leadership to decide.If a consensus is reached, it means that PRS is almost certainly to get Bukit Goram (Selirik), while two other Iban majority seats, Stakan and Samalaju, can be ‘booked’ by SPDP.
That leaves the Orang Ulu majority seat of Long Lama (Mulu), and Bidayuh majority seats of Serembu and Triboh.After PBB is expected to get the three Melayu/Melanau majority seats, it is also eyeing another two seats with Triboh and Serembu being their best bets.
PBB is also highly likely to get Triboh, which is carved from the two existing state seats of Tebedu and Kedup, which are represented by PBB.Serembu, on the other hand, is created from a portion of Bengoh seat, which is represented by SUPP, as well as the Tarat seat, being represented by PBB.
The 11th new seat, Long Lama (Mulu) is created from the Marudi, which is represented by SPDP (now with the new Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras)) and Telang Usan, which is under PBB.With PBB claiming five out of the 11 new seats, SPDP or PRS can now eye Long Lama (Mulu).In terms of estimated figures, the opposition is viewed as not likely to pose a big challenge to the state leadership.
Redelineation favourable to BN
However, it is well-known that the support for a party in a particular constituency can swing due to factors such as protest votes, selection of candidates who are not ‘voter-friendly’ or internal disputes.
This new redelineation can be considered as favourable to the BN as almost all the new seats involved rural areas in which the BN has proven to receive a lot of support.
Prior to this, these places involved rural state constituencies that are huge, prompting the Election Commission to conduct the electoral redelineation.
As soon as the Federal Court approved the redelineation process middle of last month, Sarawak DAP secretary Alan Ling claimed that the state BN required an additional 11 seats to address a split in two of the BN component parties.
All this assumption, however, was made without any consideration to the two splinter parties, namely UPP and Teras, which have declared themselves as ‘BN-friendly’.Now the onus is on Adenan to use his good sense and experience in dealing with their application to join the state BN fold.- Bernama
