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.”

awang1The 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

Your Guess is as Good as Mine

aselectionsThe 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 ?

Urang Ngenak Cawat Enda Nemu Ngundi

pas2Article first published in April 5th 2011. As long as  Abdul Hadi Awang  is still the President of PAS, he should not be allowed into Sarawak for his words which are downgrading the Dayaks. BN Sarawak supporters have not forgotten about it.

It will be good for the State Government to also enforce the ban for him not to step foot into Sarawak too says a Senior Dayak leader.

 

BALA KABAN URANG BA SARAWAK, ANANG KTAI MUDAH LUPA ngau nama di sebut President PAS maya sida parti pembangkang alah bak pilihanraya mit Batang Ai taun 2010. Tu dipadah iya…….

“Semua pilihanraya mit sebedau tu keputusan ia nuju ngagai ktai. Semina di Batang Ai aja ktai alah laban sidak ia ndak nemu reti ka ngundi, ngena cawat agi. Aku ukai ka ngenyaik ke cdak ya tapi bak ditok tempat ke lebih manah gamal agi, ngundi PAS.”

Tuk kumen ari siko urang ke dipadah ahli ulamak ngau urang besai (ketua) ari sebuah parti islam bak Malaysia. Patut ndak kah urang ke “beriman” ngau urang ke besai (ketua) ari parti tau berjako utai baka tuk?

Kangau bala ktai Dayak “ngena cawat agi” reti ya nunjuk ke iya sigi nadai sensitif ngau peduli ngagai ktai bala-bala pribumi bak negeri Sarawak tuk. Ukai aja iya nyindir ke ktai madah ke bala ktai pribumi bak Sarawak tu bodo ngau enda nemu pikir laban nadai ngundi ke sida pembangkang, utai dijako iya sigi bisi reti ngau sida bala urang ke nyukong Pakatan Pembangkang bak Sarawak terutama skali sida Parti SNAP ngau Parti Keadilan Rakyat ke sigi besai bala kaum dimaksud ke President tuk.

Ari pikiran baka tuk meh ktai ulih nemu Urang besai (President) tuk nadai layak ka ngulu atau menerajui negeri Sarawak yang sigi mayuh kaum ke berbilang bangsa idup aman walaupun sida ia lain-lain pemikir pasal politik.

Jaku baka tuk ulih ngemecahbelah ngau ngenimbul ke jaik pikir ari bala-bala rakyat ktai ditu.

Angka ya ingat ke urang ke “pakai molek” atau ngenak sluar dalam jak ke nemu milih pewakil.Tapi anang enda ingat sitik ari ilak ya dirikpu ke ngenak cawat “pampers” laban enda ulih ngetat ke utai ti kak pansut….

Parti PAS ngau Parti Pembangkang lain harus nulak utai baka tu awak ke keamanan ngau pemanah negeri Sarawak ulih kelal.Semua bala kaum pribumi Sarawak sama-sama nulak pengering ngau penengking kaum ari cidak tuk.ngundi cidak ya tu sama jak baka ngundi ke urang ke ngemelik ke ktai urang-urang bak Sarawak tuk.

( Bahasa Version)
It will be good for the State Government to also enforce the ban for him not to step foot into Sarawak too says a Senior Dayak leader.
ORANG SARAWAK, JANGAN MUDAH LUPA dengan kata-kata President PAS bila parti pembangkang kalah di pilihanraya kecil Batang Ai tahun 2010.
Ini kata-kata beliau…. “Semua pilihanraya kecil sebelum ini keputusannya memihak kepada kita. Cuma di Batang Ai sahaja kita kalah sebab mereka ini tidak reti undi, pakai cawat lagi. Saya bukan nak hina tetapi tempat yang pakai molek, undi PAS.”
 
Ini adalah komen dari seseorang yang dikatakan ahli ulamak dan ketua sebuah parti islam di Malaysia.
Patutkah orang yang dikatakan “beriman” dan ketua sebuah parti membuat kenyataan seperti ini?
Memanggil kaum Dayak “pakai cawat lagi” menunjukkan bahawa beliau tidak sensitif dengan kaum-kaum pribumi di Sarawak.  Bukan sahaja dia secara sinis mengatakan bahawa kaum pribumi di Sarawak bodoh dan tidak berakal kerana tidak mengundi parti pembangkang, kenyataan tersebut juga mengena kepada penyokong-penyokong Pakatan Pembangkang sendiri di Sarawak terutama nya parti SNAP dan Parti Keadilan Rakyat yang sebilang besar nya dari kaum yang dimaksudkan President ini.
Persepsi seperti ini menunjukkan bahawa beliau atau parti pembangkang lain tidak layak menerajui negeri Sarawak yang merangkumi berbilang kaum yang selama ini hidup dengan aman damai, walaupun berlainan pendapat politik.
Kenyataan ini boleh memecahbelah dan menimbulkan sentimen perkauman dikalangan rakyat disini.
Mungkin beliau ingat orang yang “pakai molek” atau pakai seluar dalam sahaja yang pandai memilih wakil.  Jangan lupa satu hari nanti mungkin dia sendiri perlu pakai cawat “pampers” sebab tak boleh kontrol apa yang keluar…
Parti PAS dan Parti Pembangkang lain mesti ditolak sebulat-bulatnya agar keharmonian dan kesejahteraan negeri Sarawak dapat dikekalkan.  Semua kaum pribumi Sarawak sama-sama tolak keangkuhan serta penindasan kaum mereka ini.  Mengundi mereka sama seperti menyokong tindakan mereka memperkecil and menindas kaum-kaum di Sarawak.
Bangsa PriBumi Sarawak,  Ayuh bangun… lawan dan hancurkan perjuangan penderhaka bangsa ini.

Adenan wants Stronger Mandate..!!

adenan1CM Adenan doesn’t mince his words. He knows that in his “maiden election” as Commander in Chief his team needs to put up an impressive showing.Of course, the political vultures will rip into his bones if he does no better than his predecessor.

Adenan’s so called advisors will say we dont need to read into the results but in any elections even if you win the facts and figures matters as they NEVER Lie.
Adenans words of ,”so that KL will listen to Adenan as he speaks for Sarawak people behind him” is nothing but the Truth.

Its a return to the old ways of FEDERALISM says a veteran editor and current cyber critic.
Truth be told ,” Whatever happens in the next Sarawak Elections will have no bearing on the GE14.” This Sarawak elections will have the Federal leaders ready to barge in if Adenan does badly.
Sarawakians have always been realistic and they ensure that their Livelihood plus Bread and Butter issues are addressed. At the moment their eyes are  focussing on him. The sad truth though is here to stay.
Urbanites & Semi rural voters will not come back or swayed to BN as the local infighting between the parties of SUPP , UPP , SPDP & TERAS remains a “prickly ” affair. Adenan needs to win handsomely
“hensemness” in the rural areas with increase in majorities to balance popularity. The Mandate is achievable of course with 2/3rd majority but could a New Alliance be a REALITY after the election.
This will be a coup but we leave that to another article. Stay focus for now.

The battle ground is now fertile and the opposition are making headways in the semi rural enclaves and no one can deny the fact. Adenan knows that too and his political analysts do not need to cream up to him and give him the “beautiful picture that it is not.

Adenan have had a panoramic view of the opposition when his predecessor was leading the way. He was standing with the arrows and bows hitting the targets. Now his TEAM are being whipped into place to withstand the many adversaries that they will face. His timing and getting them all set and ready to go into battle will be absolutely vital.

The WIND which Adenan has managed to whip up like a desert storm of UU or Oooh Ha’s are a reality check for every Sarawakian Voter.

Will you be a part of the MANDATE that Adenan seeks? You know better than any keyboard cyber analysts. Honestly, we know though, that Adenan doesn’t mince his words..

Choose wisely and don’t forget this article when you casts your votes very soon in Sarawak elections.

 

 

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”

No one is Indispensable

 indispenEven the TITANIC SUNK…..

We are now focussing on Sarawak Elections 11 which will be held very soon. August 17th will see a One Day DUN seating which is done for the obvious scenario of the 11 New Seats on offer.

This will then be brought up in Parliament and the bill will also be passed and by the time of Elections there will be 82 seats up for grabs. No one is indispensable also refers to the Golden Boy of DAP. Our sources on the ground says that this time around his seat too is no more a safe seat. He himself knows that and BN are making inroads and it only takes the right candidate to unseat him.

We only have to remember the words of a veteran politician. It used to be said,” DAP harps on give us one rocket to fight for your rights in DUN Sarawak but now its reversed to the BN component parties especially in the urban areas.”

It will take more than oo0 Ha,oo0 Ha to reverse the trend. There are so much infighting within the UPP/SUPP camps and also TERAS/SPDP which will only benefit the opposition based parties. 11 new seats will that solved all ooo Ha’s headache? CM Sarawak used to be behind the scene directing traffic for Tun Pehin Sri Taib but now he needs all his prowess and years of experience, wisdom and Art of War to pull through.

The responses he got from the people during the recent Kibar Jalur Gemilang launching was as crystal clear as they come. There is nothing to hide as far as the URBANITES are concerned. Its the rural areas that will still be the bastion for BN. DAP “Impian Sarawak rural programme are not so much a threat but word on the ground is that A Bidayuh majority seat is very shaky and will even fall to the DAP. Not trying to boost the DAP morale and deflate BN but all systems needs to be checked and counter checked. The question on everyones lips especially on the BN camp would be DAP/PKR/PAS are also embroiled in party fights. Their seats are also up for grabs don’t you think?

Who then will try to sink the Titanic this time around? In any elections there will be casualties and this time around is no different. The poltical parties in Sarawak will pit their election manifestoes,rhetorics,winnable candidates against one another. But it does boil down very much to how the new political paradigm and how the Commander in Chiefs lead their charges forward.

Sad to say, Political Popularity does not last. Every one will have their day the Golden Boy and the CM Sarawak will need to fight it out for their turf. BN must not neglect the URBAN areas to the extend of ‘saying,” No chance,waste of funds which was clearly heard at the corridors of power. This words should not be repeated. The opposition parties are very good in camouflaging and they are united in that respect as compared to those in the ruling party.

Even incumbents who have been working hard are being threatened and pushed to work extremely hard and Taibs words must be heeded in order that BN remains a powerhouse,”we’ve to learn and learning how to be humble to serve our people,especially when will continue to face challenges and changes with the tide of time”

Was the Titanic unsinkable? It was at the time but little did the owners thought that could have happened to its SHIP. Be prepared, fasten your seat belts and the people will work out who will come through unscathed as the incumbent YB.

Many people know many things. There are some who thinks they have all put together an application of indestructible and unpenetrable winning margins. Even the CIA or the Kremlin needs all the information and covert operatives that they need to succeed. If the ruling government depends on outside forces and not the Commander in Chiefs they will fail.

The commander in chief intent must be understood by his Supreme Councils in the component parties,decisions must be devolved to the lowest level to allow the frontliner grassroot members to exploit the opportunities to win the marginal war at the constituencies. Of course there are war rooms for all the parties involved but who RUNS it will determine the Indispensable One.

Golden Boy has shone but will ooo ha ooo ha  ooooo ha regain the confidence for the Urban enclave. Tell me that his strategists are not watching over us and our writing, More are coming which will benefit for those who thinks they need help but be reminded NO ONE IS INDISPENSABLE.

17th August 2015 A Significant Date in Sarawak..?

aaadenan22nd July 2015..a day many Sarawakians who was at the Peaceful Rally march or at the Waterfront Pantomime  will remember for as long as they breathe the air in this earthly kingdom. Today 23rd July 2015 is also the birthday of Malaysia’s 6th Prime Minister Najib Razak who turned 62. Many congratulations to him and he needs to be blessed with good health to turn around the blind corners which he is facing unless the detractors are silenced in a manner the government of the day knows best.

Najib has made his choice and those around him will fight on with him to avoid being taken down like Ten pins in the bowling alley. Sarawak is significant to him as a political battleground to shut the traps of those who have been overzealous in dethroning him and tearing to shreds the many programmes that he has embarked on.

We know that http://www.sarawakreport.org/ was used by the opposition front as a political tool in the last elections and many articles written scored “enough points” to win and ended dreams of many in the BN camp.

Now the incessant attack is no more focus on Sarawak as CM Adenan is winning the popularity polls. Will his army win the war for him against the opposition and give a big boost to Najib?

August 17th will be a very important  date if its the call of a dissolution in Sarawak. The encampment of both sides of the propaganda machines including surely sarawakreport.org, will give Najib and his men a battlefield back to Sarawak.

Will Adenan and Sarawak be very much in the script? Its coming soon .Be prepared to face the HEAT

The truth of the matter is Political Popularity does not lasts forever and Adenan knows the game well enough as he has survived many decades in this field.

Najib will need Adenan and it will be in the political history books that Sarawak was the turning point.
