“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.”
img-20151127-wa0005.jpgWhat 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.

BN PRS/SPDP/TERAS “Merger of Minds”

Does everything come a full circle? Not everything, but most of it. Well, are you going to dispel the fact that all the leaders of these three parties will go back to their beginning into ONE BIG ENTITY.

image

A senior SPDP politician Datuk Paul Igai was quoted,” he expected a “major development” to take place before state elections are called. TERAS Supreme Council member concurred and called it ,”merger of the minds” Tan Sri James Masing was cautious in his choice of words,”“Let’s see what are the reactions of our members first to the merger proposal”

At the recent PBB MKT meeting on the 16th August 2015 CM Adenan was asked a question,”Have you indicate to other parties to prepare for elections. I do that all the time he said.” But he added and “TO RESOLVE THEIR DIFFERENCES…..it could be seen that the Deputy President and Senior Vice President of PBB Abang Johari and Awang Tengah nodded with agreement with the CM Adenan.

An argument put forward by a BN sympathiser,”Will PBB allow this merger of minds to happen? The dayaks will all be housed in one big house and they will be a threat to PBB. Of course if you look at the political mathematics that would not even be a threat as PRS 9 Seats, SPDP 8 seats only totals to 17 seats, SUPP are by consensus allocated 19 seats while PBB 35 seats.

It must be noted though that politicians by and large will follow the flow of the river and will not try to go against the current to stay alive politically. PBB with 35 seats will of course be fearful of SUPP/PRS/SPDP combination but has the TERAS and UPP card at the moment to play with.

Adenan still requires a fresh MANDATE and he will need his executors to move and solve both issues and affecting the parties concerned or to come out with a BOLDER APPROACH OF “merger of minds entity in PRS/SPDP/TERAS. Solving the rural based parties problems would see PBB and the new entity winning,winning back losts seats and maintaining the grip for Barisan Nasional.

19 seats which are allocated to SUPP which the majority have been taken over by DAP will see the dominant Chinese Urban based parties slugging it out between SUPP/DAP/UPP/independants which according to a Chinese analyst ‘the bests man win”. Chinese voters are being enticed he said by Adenans call for greater control of Education for the state which is good no doubt. However this are just populists statements and one would wonder what DAP or the opposition pact would come out with come election day.

One clear indicator would be,” Will the BN Federal Government dare to answer the EDUCATION question?” if they are tight-lipped over the education issue, the analyst said the tables will not turn for the BN candidate to make much impact against the DAP. The issues at hand with the higher prices for goods, ringgit spiralling out of control and other factors will affect the urban cyber savvy voters.

As for the rural seats its not so much that the leaders of the political parties are at logger heads but the constant pushing, back biting and annoyance comes form those second echelon leaders. A senior leader said to us,”  if you look at SPDP/TERAS its people like Robert Ayu, Alexander Asing, Banyi Beriak who wants to stand and be a candidate and knows that with BN ticket in Sarawak chances of winning in the rural areas is 60%. Who doesn’t want to be BN Assemblyman? Mawan,Tiong have their own seats in ADUN and MP and they are comfortable in their own right”

So the question is who are making it impossible for the parties to merge or at bests to see the SPDP/TERAS combination back to its former glory? One political pundit remarked,” Did you know that Tiong and Mawan as friends had “cha kueh tiaw” together in KL after the Parliament sitting? Of course we would say,true or not which is commonly asked  plus are you trying to create a friction for Mawan and the other TERAS aasemblyman?”

It does seem that some Sarawak based Peninsular Bloggers up to no good again. Our political pundit says PBB/BN  knows who they are and they should not meddle in Sarawak affairs.Moreover they are not fine tuned to the local cultures even though some are married or have decided to live in Sarawak. Our political culture is now being tested to the fullest as the ‘minds have been bombarded with more lies, allegations, defamation and names selling.

He continued,”Truth can become Untruth while Rumours can become Truth” All these political movement are for the “BETTER GOOD OF BN SARAWAK” Some who yearn for political standing will need to wait for their turn as the road deviates and they need also to fine tune to the Sarawak political landscape.  

It’s not something new on the political mergers and we all are not too excited about it. Or are we? Even one of the executors from PBB  looks at it as a Unity of the Dayaks? Certainly if it happens we will witness the history of A FULL POLITICAL CIRCLE .{ chronology:- Sunday 16th August 2015 SPDP seriously talked about merger. PRS initiated the idea very much earlier in 2006 but was given cool reception (vice-versa). Today 20th Augusts 2015 its all splashed in the mass/media.}

Adenan would be saying to us all oooo ha, ooooha, ooooha U U…. Case solved...Thanks for giving me another 5 years as CM Sarawak”

Chief Ministers Men Series 3

GSTCome April 1st the much talked about GST will come into force. (The 6% of Goods & Services Tax ) GST (Goods & Services Tax), which is also known as VAT or the value added tax in many countries is a multi-stage consumption tax on goods and services.

GST is levied on the supply of goods and services at each stages of the supply chain from the supplier up to the retail stage of the distribution. Even though GST is imposed at each level of the supply chain, the tax element does not become part of the cost of the product because GST paid on

The opposition front have been making a lot of loud noises inside and outside of Parliament to the extend of the people following blindly and believing. The government is implementing the GST after only a thorough breakdown and careful study of the effects and also to ensure the people and economy will not be badly affected.

In Sarawak the GST will initially be felt ‘minor tremors”but in our CM’s series 3 the GST comes into effect with the Acronym “Gago Sangat Tok”- Actually the article will be focus on the lobbying of seats available for the 11th Sarawak State Elections.

The Hudud issue have got to the Pakatan coalition front of DAP leaving the front as it feels that they have been backstabbed at the back. Their statement reads,: “DAP Sarawak regrets that PAS has deviated from their PR common policy framework by pursuing the implementation of HUDUD law in Malaysia. With PAS remaining as a component party in PR Sarawak, DAP Sarawak has resolved and made the painful decision to quit from PR Sarawak” SO DAP will not have much to worry about GAGO SANGAT TOK (GST). They will need not to bow down to the demands with PKR and they will be able to venture in their “IMPIAN SARAWAK” where the rural seats will be their priority.

They will be calling their own shots and even if they do come together with PKR and other local parties they will have the upper hand. After all they have 12 ADUNS with PKR only 3 and the other an Independent. The game played by the DAP hierarchy in Sarawak looks simple enough to draw first blood to ensure that their voters will continue to believe in them as they are genuinely serious in their political fight. It will be so different for DAP if the BN Chinese based parties are not still at each other necks.

The Chief Minister Adenan have listened and handed down grants to the Chinese Community on Education and have done his utmost in eradicating corrupted officers who have their hands in illegal logging and even made his stand on stopping  the catcalls of PENDATANG.The Chief Ministers Men are trying their best but it seems the political parties involved are not heeding the calls. On the ground it does seem that it will still be very much an uphill tasks for the BN Chinese parties to regain lost ground.

LET US BE ABSOLUTELY TRUTHFUL ABOUT THE WHOLE SCENARIO. ITS THE ENEMY WITHIN WHO ARE KILLING THEMSELVES AND NOT ANY OUTSIDER.

SUPP and UPP have to understand that no other BN coalition parties are lobbying for the urban seats. Both of them at the time of writing cannot even be seen cordially at political functions.

DONT THE VOTERS KNOW …. ESPECIALLY THE URBAN ONES?

However in the rural bastion of safe seats for BN the scenario is very much dissimilar. The claims are more like what PBB Belaga Youth claims to contest in the New seats of Murum. This have also been counter claim by PRS who says that the seat is in their Parliamentary area of Ulu Rejang and their State seat  of Belaga. It is no secret that the lobbying have been intensified to the extend that the ADUN of Katibas  have even stepped in to ask all parties not to create the rift which will be of no benefit to the BN coalition. He is afterall a former Secretary general to PBB and he knows only too well the ultimate reaction from the top lleadership. ( This is not to be revealed here)

Lobbying of course in the rural areas comes in many forms and three or four days festivities at each constituency thrown by the aspiring candidates are not unusual. The Chief Ministers men have seen it too often in past campaigns and the signature campaigns are widely used as the Internet technology of Whatsapp  (print screen) or Emails will have very little effect in this rural areas. The Chief Minister has already a list of potential candidates drawn up by his inner circles and he will have the final say no matter who GAGO SANGAT TOK (GST) The political parties will all have their own lists no doubt but the final say will be left to the BN Sarawak Chairman as he will be leading the team to the elections.

Our intelligence sources say that many veteran BN ADUNS are hopeful that their previous track record will get them considered or retained for the 71 seats. The 11 new seats will be divided amongst the BN coalition and here will be seen new, fresh faced and younger candidates.

The AIR OF RUMOURTISM has that they will be changes in a few constituency amongst them ARE YOU READY? These are the lists which are widely spoken as the election candidacy hots up:- Tamin ,Semop Jemoreng, Jepak, Muara Tuang Layar Bukit Begunan,Lingga Tupong Batu Danau.It does seem that GST ADUNS have got on the ground and worked hard and hopefully will not be dropped from the final lists.

Of course the Chief Ministers men have said its the AIR OF RUMOURTISM but CM Adenan will say YOU UU..( these are the reasons and here are the reports from JASA,SB and grassroots )

Chief minister men knows that the TEAM matters more than a few who thinks that they deserve the chances again when they are not seen to be politically motivated no more and they have also outlived their political lifeline.  They might still be useful in other ways to the State administration and some will even be given government positions if BN are returned to power. Their experiences are much needed but to serve their constituencies is another matter.

GST will be implemented on April 1st but GAGO SANGAT TOK lobbying will be carried on till the final lists will be drawn. it does pay though to be close too the Chief Ministers Men and Series 4 to 13th will come sooner than expected. Until then just stay focus on your work which you have been assigned.”Don’t Over Over huh in your political ambitions as the…..

CM Sarawak will say this to all   “YOU…UU”

Bloggers to be Unmasked…??

secretbloggerWouldn’t it just be timely for MCMC to expose or unmask all the bloggers.? Should they….??  Remarkably,it does seem that ‘someone” is being hit right at the heart and the subject matter is nevertheless being debated in the corridors of power. Will Justice be served many asks?

Our and most blogger opinions in cyber space are being scrutinised and many in power are feeling the heat. No one will be left unattended to as and when the blogger in question digs up all the dirt and posts it on line. The truth hurts and we know that many will rather be on the “good-side ” of these bloggers rather than be on the WRONGSIDE.

Be prepared to face the wrath of the bloggers when they get their act together. The pen is mightier than the sword but they are ways to stop the bloggers but authorities would rather scrutinise their writings before acting. MCMC knows best and they would not just act as per what this extracted article have in mind.

The extracted article  

Umno leaders have described the anonymous bloggers who attacked Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and others as cowards and non-credible, saying it is unethical to hide behind unnamed postings to attack people.

Kedah Umno leader Datuk Othman Aziz said it was irresponsible of the anonymous bloggers to play up issues related to state investment firm 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) merely to split the country’s leadership.

“If we want to raise an issue, we have to be responsible and comment responsibly. We cannot try to confuse the readers or worse, exploit an issue until we pit one person against another,” said Othman, who is Jerlun MP.

Besides Dr Mahathir, The Edge publisher Tong Kooi Ong and CIMB Group chairman Datuk Seri Nazir Razak had also been attacked.

The Edge recently revealed that the blogger behind the malaysianexpose.wordpress.com which carried several accusations against the trio, is also behind other blogs which have published complimentary articles on businessman Low Taek Jho.

Low has since denied being part of attacks, saying he respected the trio for their professional achievements.

Othman said it looked as though the anonymous bloggers had the bad intention of seeing the country ruined.

“As a responsible citizen, Dr Mahathir will give his views if he feels there are mistakes that needed to be corrected.

“If such anonymous attacks continue, in the end it will affect our country’s economy. Will we be happy to see our economy become haphazard?” he asked.

He said it was pointless for the anonymous bloggers to succeed in their attempts when in the end, the ones who lose out are Malaysians themselves.

“His motive might be political and might be aimed at toppling the current government. He may succeed but what’s the point; in the end, the country might be in chaos.”

Sabah Umno leader Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin said the bloggers’ actions were aimed at seeing two of the country’s senior leaders clash.

This, he said, was evident in the actions of numerous bloggers who raised issues to provoke a clash between previous leaders like Dr Mahathir and former finance minister Tun Daim Zainuddin, with prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“This should be stopped because I don’t see any positive impact from such actions,” he said.

The Kinabatangan MP said bloggers must be ethical and responsible in their writings and not make any allegations without facts.

“As a responsible blogger, one cannot simply write without concrete facts to back it up,” he added.

Umno leader Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said while it is quite normal for writers to have pen-names, it is another thing entirely when one hides behind anonymity of the Internet to attack people.

“Being anonymous is something else. It is as if one is hiding from something, more so when you are attacking someone else. It is unethical to hide behind the anonymity of blogs to attack people,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

He suggested that those who have been maligned or wrongly accused by such bloggers lodge reports with either the police or the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said unethical bloggers who make a living as weapons of powerful people have abused the Internet.

“In this case, it’s clear that there is political motivation behind the actions of all the parties involved.

“But I think people are smart enough to know this is a game of vested interests,” he said.

Nur Jazlan, who is Umno’s Pulai MP, believed anonymous bloggers are on the payroll of individuals or parties to go around disparaging the reputations of others.

“What would be their motive to smear peoples’ reputations if not for money?”

However, he said it will be very difficult for MCMC to stop such acts as the Internet is an open platform, adding that Malaysians must be educated on such matters.

Pengerang MP Datuk Seri Azalina Othman said she was disgusted by such acts, describing them as “cowardly”.

“If you are championing a cause, why hide behind anonymity? If you are a blogger, put down your name… I think it’s a bit cowardly not to.

“You have the freedom to write whatever you want to write, you should put your name to your opinions,” said the former Puteri Umno chief.

Kelab Chedet exco member Mohd Ikhmal Abu Bakar said anonymous bloggers have no credibility, unlike those who put their names and face to their writings.

He cited the example of Dr Mahathir who he said takes responsibility over his blog postings.

“I ask that these anonymous bloggers come forward and show yourself. Do not attack and hide behind the anonymity of your blogs.

“If you are brave enough to criticise, you should be brave enough to put your name to it,” he said.

He said those who attack personalities but hide their identity have no “value”.

“These people have no credibility and to me, their writing has no impact. People do not know who he is.

“If The Malaysian Insider did not come up with the story, people will ignore the blogger,” he said, referring to the blogger who made accusations of currency speculation.

“The public should not believe in the writings by anonymous bloggers.” – February 4, 2015.

Adenan on Two Hard Hitting Fronts..

inteThis is what you see and this is what Adenan is and he is as real as the person who is CM of Sarawak today and a no nonsense style in administration has always been his trademark.

Adenan did not minced his words when he said,” no longer tolerate those who have eyes but are blind, have ears but are deaf and have mouths but are dumb”.

Also he continued, “Some (enforcement officers) have said they are afraid of gangsters, that they are afraid of receiving bullets in the mail. Well, you tell them, ‘Adenan told you to enforce the law’. No more excuses not to do anything.”
The 6 companies he requested earlier in March to sign an integrity pledge were KTS Group of Companies, Rimbunan Hijau, Samling, Shin Yang, Ta Ann and WTK Holdings Bhd.

No moves were forthcoming and it does seem that CM have to take the bull by its horn.

According to a political source Adenan can feel the under currents and it seems that there are forces going after his chair to destabilise his tenure and to shake him up. The source said,” The Rakyat are all for him with his frankness and his no nonsense approach and its a breadth of fresh air with him getting his fingers dirtied at the most crucial time of his administration.

The election is not too far away and Adenan is creating all the heat for the opposition. He needs to maintain it as such and he even calls for the Integrity pledge for his Ministers and Assistant Ministers.”

Our political source even went to the extend to say that the stern warning to the timber companies ,”not to mess with him” has send shivers amongst the people who are walking the corridors of power.

The tycoons will feel that they are in for “quite a ride” in the months ahead and they either have to toe the line or face the wrath of the Adenan’s administration.

Will they join the ride or ask for an “outside force ” or “enemy within”to ensure Adenan will not be so gung-ho and scoring direct hits to their vulnerable businesses?

The Pandora Box is opening and the key is still within reach of some who sees that their powers are slowly being sucked out from their very own eyes. The unknowing leaks from the state administration is beginning to show results and the powerful few are scratching their own faces with their finger nails. Ouch!!!

 

 

Adenan is doing it for a reason and it is going to be a surprise and those who are first in line to sign be it timber tycoons, ministers ,assistant ministers will have a good nights sleep.

Surely there is NO ENTRAPMENT here..? The Rakyat will applaud them for being True Sarawakian in spirit as they will uphold the State’s integrity and ready to fight corruption. This is a top notch move.

 

 
We are pretty sure that they will be more surprises in store for those walking the corridors of power and ensure that the opposition too will be caught off guard.
It has certainly started to ooze some blood from those walking the corridors of power and some are again looking over their shoulders.

More will come soon..Enjoy the ride

TERAS and UPP “Suitable Solution will be found..!!”

cm90SIBU, Aug 4 (Bernama) — Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem is still working out a suitable solution to solve the problems in the Sarawak Barisan Nasional (BN) caused by the emergence of new political parties, namely Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras) and the United People’s Party (UPP).

Teras and UPP existed as a result of internal leadership crisis in the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) and the Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) respectively.

Speaking at a Hari Raya do here on Sunday night, the chief minister said there was no doubt that the emergence of Teras and UPP had affected the Sarawak BN’s solidarity and strength to a certain extend.

“The opposition parties are cheering and may stand to gain, but I’m working out a solution.

“I cannot solve the problem there and then. Give me time, maybe one or two years to do so,” he said.

Both Teras and UPP are yet to be accepted into the BN. Teras is led by Tan Sri William Mawan, who is also the state’s Minister of Social Development and Urbanisation and former SPDP president, while UPP is helmed by Datuk Sri Wong Soon Koh, who is the state’s Minister of Local Government and Community Development and former SUPP assistant secretary general.

On the current state cabinet line-up, Adenan said he would maintain it without any changes and hence, keeping Mawan and Wong.

“I want an inclusive not an exclusive government. This is the policy for us to prosper and progress,” he added.
