PAS Sarawak Leader leaves Party

pas utk semua(Extracted from internet portal)

Former Sarawak PAS election director Mohd Fidzuan Zaidi has confirmed that he left the Islamist party two days ago.

Although the outcome of the elections at the party’s muktamar last week- which saw the progressives camp being purged from the party – was not the main reason he left the party, Fidzuan did not deny that he was quite disappointed with the results.

“Yes, I’m a bit disappointed. But it’s normal, like when a team we support loses.

“Like football teams Manchester United and Liverpool, there’s dissatisfaction if they do not win. But it’s not my main reason for leaving PAS,” he told Malaysiakini when contacted.

Fidzuan said his main reason for leaving the party was because he wanted to focus on his career and to take a break from politics.

Fidzuan’s leaving comes after Santubong PAS commissioner Andri Zulkarnaen Hamden denied that party members were leaving the party.

“Many have asked me on the issue faced by the Sarawak PAS leadership as of late.

“I want to stress that all those speculations are just rumours,” Andri had said.

Could re-join the party in the future

Fidzuan who has been with PAS for 20 years explained that he was the type who could only focus on one thing at a time.

“I am a determined person, so when I do something, I do it wholeheartedly and one at a time.

He also denied that the conflict occurring between the party’s two camps was a reason why he had left the party.

“No, it’s just that if I am still a PAS member, I still have a responsibility in the party,” he said.

He was also open to the idea that he could re-join the party in the future as it all depends on his career.

Fidzuan has also yet to receive a response from the party’s top leadership over his actions.

“Maybe they will say ‘all the best’ to me,” he said

Candidates ready to rumble in Kuala Besut

 

By MUZLIZA MUSTAFA
July 11, 2013

One thing is certain over the next 12 days in Kuala Besut – PAS’ Azlan Yusof and Barisan Nasional’s  Tengku Zaihan Che Ku Abd Rahman will heap voters with loads of promises.

Both outlined their vision for voters at different times today for the Kuala Besut by-election campaign, which starts tomorrow.

Azlan, 48, wants to work on the improving the lot of the community if he tops the polls.

“I am to going to focus on three important areas namely the high poverty, the high unemployment rate and the social problems in the area,” he said at a press conference held at Kampung Baharu PAS headquarters this evening.

Che Long, as everyone fondly calls Azlan said his strategy during the campaign was simple.

“I am going door to door.  As it is Ramadan I will go to the many talks and other religious activities here during the campaign,” he said.

But it will be tough for Che Long.

Of the past 14 general elections, all were won by Barisan Nasionalexcept for 1959, 1969, 1974 dan 1999, which were won by PAS.

Over at the BN, engineer Tengku Zaihan Che Ku Abd Rahman, 37, ready to sacrifice family life for voters if he won.

“They understand that this is how things are now. I will get busy but this does not mean I do not think about them,” he said.

Zaihan who used to work as an engineer in Putrajaya now no longer has the luxury of the 9 to 5 job.

Since BN deputy chief Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced him as the party’s choice, he has been busier than a bee with endless meetings here.

The Universiti Sains Malaysia trained civil engineer is married with four children.

His rival Che Long who owned a string of businesses,  is married with six children.

Both are locals

PAS “Plot Thickens..!!”

The ground is shifting especially with the imminent General Elections around the corner. There are more than a few whispers amongst the grassroots of PBB that certain incumbents will have to forgo their seats for a new face.

IS PAS SO SIGNIFICANT THAT PBB IS TROUBLED..??

Murmurs of discontentment and lobbying for the seats are the order of the day as the grassroots will ensure their present Members of Parliament are picked to stand again. A journalists friend of mine said

 “PM will not only see their Credentials as a Winnable candidate but also VOTEABLE BY THE RAKYAT.”

PAS and not PKR Will capitalise if BN some of the present incumbents are not replaced. Smses are exchanged and some of them if published will immediately expose the whole plot. We will  give you more insights and tasty revelations when the time is right.

It’s does point to the fact that it is really getting really heaty in the corridors of power in Putrajaya but also at every available cafes/ coffehouses/lounges in Sarawak especially when it involves the PBB14.

ABU9 has thrown up an equation and have already created more than a stir:-https://audie61.wordpress.com/2012/02/06/pbb-infighting-with-abu-9/

Suffice to say the main stream media has added more flavours to an already volatile situation by using the article”Wooing Chinese Voters” to put more pressure on two areas of concern which have more than one occasion kick up a storm. Very soon teacups will fly as Federal leaders are already been fed the information.

This was frontpaged:-Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s office and BN information chief Ahmad Maslan was quoted to have said this,”the coastal seats of Batang Lupar and Sadong Jaya where PAS seemed to have made inroads to the Malay areas.

So there musts be some truths for PBB to be worried as these areas will certainly see some resistance and also a shift towards the Islamic Party PAS . Is PBB losing its grip?

The whole article can be read here:-http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/02/16/wooing-chinese-voters/

The incumbents will obviously be looking over their shoulders as they know their FATE lies not only as winnable but also VOTAEBLE against the PAS/PKR candidates. It’s more than a hearsay when reports filter up to the Prime Minister,Chief Minister and also President of PBB that certain issues are seen to be cropping up which needs immediate attention or to be addressed.

Its not only PBB grassroots who have voiced up but certainly seasoned PBB State ministers/assistants have also shown concern that PAS have made inroads and are also part of the plot.

The PAS machinery have shown to be delicately poised to bring some of the PBB14 incumbents down and to ensure that PBB does not make a clean sweep. It’s all part of the bigger picture which will ultimately see an end to the invincibility of the present PBB setup.

Whether PAS is part and parcel of the scheming and plotting of the PBB14 will remain a calculated guess until the results are announced on election day.

 Call it ABU9 or the Untouchables 5 which makes up PBB14 but PAS knows its facing a HERCULEAN TASKS.

GE13 “PAS 17th Feb Dissolved..??”

PAS has already predicted that the GE13 will be held in March next year with Parliament and State assemblies dissolved after the Chinese New Year on January 23rd and after Chap Goh Mei (15th Day) on 6th February 2012.

Several Chinese newspapars notably Sin Chew Jit Poh and China Press have speculated earlier and this musts have been noticed by the PAS hierarchy.

The SG Mustapha Ali claimed that his predictions have been based on media reports and preliminary forecasts of the nation’s economic status.

BN will also take the opportunity to endear itself with the Chinese Community as it is held after the  Chinese celebrations. PAS SG also mentioned that after the dissolution the election must be held within 60 days, and polling will be held in March.

Dissolved 17th February Polling 11th March 2012

The term of the current Parliament only ends in March 2013. Many dates have been thrown in and the latests which by passed us all was November 2011. The window is indeed closing in on the PM Najib to dissolve Parliament soonest. UMNO divisional elections will be held after May and General Assembly in November 2012.

However, Najib still has that window providing he is still elected to head UMNO with a mandate from the party grasssroot and head for GE13 with a new team. Will Najib wait for after UMNO elections?  

PAS is trying to tell BN they are ready but will BN fall for the dates?

ONLY PM Najib Razak KNOWS….

Tenang Over,Merlimau March 6th

After this weekends Johor Tenang by elections the focus will turn to Malacca.

The Election Commission decided tonight to hold the Merlimau by-election on March 6.

Nomination day for the Malacca state seat is February 26. It is the 15th by-election since Election 2008.The seat fell vacant after the incumbent, Barisan Nasional’s (BN) Datuk Mohamad Hidhir Abu Hasan, 54, died on January 20.

In the 1999, BN won with a majority of 2,252 votes, 2004 (5,087 votes) and 2008 with 2,154 votes.Mohamad Hidhir, who was also a state executive councillor, defeated PAS’s Jasme Tompang in the March 2008 general election.

Kickdefella “Calon BN N45 Galas..??”

Cindy of audie61 received a call from her former malaysiakini colleague,”Ada dengar tak,Calon BN N45 mungkin blogger. Tahu Siapa..?? Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz ” Kickdefella blog” Ada juga nama2 lain yang di sebut. OK .

The name of Kickdefella  is enough to send reverberations up the spine of PAS as lately his posting has been very critical of PAS. He was once a a close associate of Kelantan PAS Deputy Commissioner II Husam Musa – had a much-publicised fallout with PAS last year. There are also other names which have been mentioned.

The lists of potential candidates and names started cropping up when it was reported that MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah who himself was expected to be fielded as the BN candidate, he, as the BN and Umno election director, was believed to be inclined to choose another candidate.

Thus besides Kickdefella the others in the running are Gua Musang Umno secretary Abdul Aziz Yusof Gua Musang Umno Youth vice-chief Zamzani Harun Gua Musang Wanita and Youth wings Wan Hazani Mohd Nor and Bazlan Baharuddin.

It will be interesting to see whether UMNO will choose a Blogger to represent them instead of practising from the traditional and normal political platform. 

WILL THEY JUST DO IT THIS TIME AT N45..???

“PAS Sarawak 26 Seats…??”

Headlines yesterday,”All is not well in Pakatan Sarawak” audie61 asked a PKR Sarawak Executive member,” Is it a diversionary tactic..?” Where and who are the candidates? Where does this lead to as PKR and DAP will also be fighting head-on for some of the overlapping mixed seats?

If  this is not a diversionary tactic by PAS or the Pakatan Sarawak set up it will really put a ‘spanner in the works“. A Sarawak voter bluntly said to Natasha of audie61,” They need to see out this problem or else the momentum will never swing to the Pakatan. Why fight amongst themseves when the common enemy is BN..? ”  PAS needs to look at its strength in Sarawak  and dont throw the whole coalitions good work into the dumpsite.”

Today SNAP President Edwin Dundang even told PAS to be realistic and not to be arrogant in claiming seats for the next state elections. He said each party in Pakatan Rakyat(PR) must not be greedy for power in the fight against BN.Instead it must ensure that it has good candidates,enough resources,good ground support and not to be seen to be greedy. “I emphasis once again that PR must be very focussed in the allocation of seats to ensure one against one contests as far as possible.

In so far as SNAP is concerned the President said,”SNAP does not want any conflict with DAP,PKR and PAS over the seats distributution. Meanwhile in relation to the seats allocation in a PC the Sarawak State PKR youth announce the movements intention to contest in the 6 state seats of Satok,Semariang,Kedup,Bekenu,Katibas and Repok.

Clearly the signs are there that with the imminent dissolving of the state assembly the Pakatan and BN ground movements are evident.Those who can conjure enough support and resources are all putting their names to the respective parties for consideration. It seems that there will be also Independants who will try to join in the race as in any elections now a “SURE WIN IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE.”

Those who aspire to be candidates must be seen to be accepted by their respective parties as a Winnable candidate be it from BN or Pakatan. PAS and PKR Sarawak Youth have openly claimed stated their intentions and its up to the PAKATAN STATE ELECTION BUREAU to consider. BN will do likewise and of course they will also be “dissatisfaction amongst their ranks”

Will the elections be called soon….?? Only one person has the dates close to his chests and its up to him to have the INSPIRATION…………………

PAS..BN ENJOY WHILE IT LASTS..!!”

Joey received a call from a PAS sympathiser and the person said,” Tell the BN brothers to enjoy their stay at the TOP when they still have the time and not to try and paint PAS in the bad light. I am referring to what the Chinese Press exclusive interview with PAS President Abdul Hadi Awang.” Oooh alright said Joey and  we will check it up and a  number of phone call was made to relevant sources.

On the advice of our seniors in audie61 we posted this article from malaysiakini and let the reading public make their own judgements and to avoid controversies.

Top leaders of Pakatan Rakyat dismissed a news report which quoted PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang as saying that he is against the official registration of the coalition.

Instead, they suggested that Hadi may have been misquoted in an exclusive report front-paged by Chinese-language daily Sin Chew Daily.

pas seminar 071109 hadi awang“It is not the time for the three parties to register as a coalition, PAS does not want to make any rushed decision,” he was quoted as saying.

“Pakatan should put the registration on hold and focus on discussing cooperation among themselves first. It need not to be a party. More importantly, we must work at arriving at a common ground and work to settle our differences.”

Official news agency Bernama also carried a similar online news report quoting the PAS president.

Malaysiakini, after failing to get a response from Hadi today, spoke to his political secretary Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar, who shed light on the report.

Ahmad clarified that Hadi does not dispute Pakatan’s decision to register as a coalition.

barisan rakyat pas pkr dap“He agrees to the registration. There is no issue in terms of the three parties’ registration as a Pakatan Rakyat Party,” said Ahmad.

He added that Hadi maybe have been referring to how the three parties could move forward as a coalition although they each have a different political ideology.

“This did not mean he wants to suspend the registration. Pakatan Rakyat’s registration application has been submitted to Registrar of Societies (ROS) and is pending approval.”

‘No dispute’

DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang said he believes Hadi would not have made such a statement.

lim kit siang 201108“Any such statement is completely against what we have worked for. The news report is not correct,” said Lim.

He also said there is no dispute because top leaders of the three parties had agreed to submit the registration application to the ROS last month.

PKR director of strategy Tian Chua said had contacted PAS leaders after reading the news report and issued a clarification.

tian chua 03 240505Chua (right) said Hadi had spoken in the context of the huge responsibility on Pakatan’s shoulder – that, registered or not, the work is cut out for the coalition, including ironing out the ideology of each party.

“Hadi did not mean that Pakatan should not register. We are awaiting approval from ROS., Our focus right now is how to strengthen Pakatan,” he added.

PAS “Cawat..Enough Don’t you think so..??”

Any Dream Will Do: The final 10

( Joseph BBC1-Any dream will do Astro Channel 713 Sundays) Scott Matthewman wrote-we’re on to the loincloths. None of the boys look bad without their clothes — one or two look very good indeed, although I think I’d better keep my opinions to myself on that score)

The following below were posted by audie 61 on July 28th and we thought that this very sensitive issue should be put to rests. We also wrote an article on July 27th https://audie61.wordpress.com/2009/07/27/cawat-issue-stay-clear-wanitas/ to try to bring some senses and maturity to the highly volatile and sensitive issue.

A very good friend of mine let’s just called him Azman telephoned me from Semanjung Malaysia this morning and told me about a blogsite which is very instigative in nature and trying to pour oil in the already burning fire. He was not amused as his PAS friends took offence.

The observations from the writer in the blog,’Borneo-Warrior” in his observation was,”1. Pas supporters also worn the cawat during the Manek by-election. Instead of wearing the cawat in the pelvic area (as the so-called natives in Sarawak do), they wore the cawat in their heads.( cawat in their heads please, my friend he said and can you please tell him )

We know two wrongs don’t make a right and we have said our part by virtue these updates to our article:-

Updated 28th July :- Sms sent to Secretary General of PRS– Wilfred Nissom.Thank God and Glad there is no burning of PAS Flags.We are better than that.( A flag is revered symbol and burning it is profoundly offensive gesture towards the country/party/institution-Wikipedia)

Updated 28th July 9.30am- Headlines “Gathering to burn PAS flags put off,says PRS man. The full story can be seen in Todays Borneo Post Article page 12. Was this our timely intervention with our article and thus someone politically connected with the Prime Minister’s department raised the ALARM BELLS. Thank God or else all Hell would have broken loose.

We also know according to the blog that Politics is about twisting, carrying on..and on.. but this issue is more than that as it will aggravate it into a RACIAL ISSUE. DO we need that..??

We say as always,”There are many ways to generate political mileage and also playing politics but further aggravation of race,culture.colour,religion and sensitive issues shold be dealt accordingly with  the right way and methods.
