“Hancurkan Kubu Kuat BN..!!” Haven’t we heard this rallying cry before?
This must be the ultimately aim of the Opposition party PKR for the Parliamentary Seat of Saratok. Without a shadow of a doubt no one can deny that PKR have their roots nicely buried in the Krian State Seats. The 3″Ks” State seats of Krian,Kalaka and Kabong makes up the Parliamentary seat of Saratok. The increased speculations that there is a very ‘ likely chance” that one of the lobbyists would replace the incumbent BN MP have made PKR all the more hungrier to capture the Saratok Seat.
However BN have got wind of the opposition intentions. The writing is on the wall and the previous article ended with “BN Top Leadership would be very cautious and the winnable seats would not be sacrificed for any party or any individuals selfish needs.” Read further at ( https://audie61.wordpress.com/2017/08/15/sympathiser-for-pkr-for-bn-p205-saratok/)
The Incumbent MP knows that the party PDP has the 3 lobbyists making their presence felt in the area and he ‘wished them well,encourages them as it is their democratic right but he reminded them that there is line that they should not cross. They must not elbow out the incumbent in this BN stronghold and on top of that not even WEAKENING the opposition. The lobbyists must also not play in the hands of the opposition.”
audie61 spoke to the MP and he added further,”Don’t destroy the Fort and further fuelled a cauldron of anger‘. It must be told though that during the dark days of Saratok Parliamentary seat not many gave the Mawan much hope against the PKR Ali Biju who SLAYED an Assistant Minister in Peter Nyarok in the State Elections.
Ali was unstoppable and very popular at that time and he was going for a bigger scalp in a Full State Minister who was a first timer in the Parliamentary seat. The Prime Minister came down to Saratok during the 2nd day of campaigning to assist as he too would not want to lose this seat to PKR. Today,PM still keeps his radar open on the work carried out by the incumbent and has placed Saratok very close to his heart.
The BN top hierarchy knows very well that in his first term as Parliamentarian the incumbent has done tremendously well and have even picked up an award. The award is a recognition which even the party PDP cannot overlooked. This cannot be ignored. ( http://www.theborneopost.com/2014/12/10/award-for-saratok-kudos-for-mawan/ )
audie61 asked Mawan on his current relationship with PDP President Tiong? We are still very good friends and politically we are on the same side which is Barisan Nasional. Obviously, there is still very much the glimmer of hope that the Party President Tiong and Mawan have something in common. The enemy is not inside but outside in PKR who are quietly infiltrating and using the lobbyists against the Incumbent MP.
There is a lot at stake for BN and they will not want to be drawn into a mess at a later stage which according to INFORMED AND INTELLIGENCE SOURCES could materialise. Sarawak BN would want to deliver this seat too and they will consider all options and to drop the incumbent WITHOUT EVEN going for ‘renewed patching up of the leaders in question” would be doing injustice to the BN democratic system.
Morover, Mawan has been very consistent in ensuring that most of the policies are in tandem with the government of the day and many programmes by various agencies in the parliamentary area are successfully carried out . Appropriately without question BN will ensure that Mawan and Tiong see eye to eye to defeat the common enemy in PKR.
It would also certainly be a very wise political judgement if one of the lobbyists own up to be under the internship of the Incumbent and stay focused to help BN retain this seat in GE14 and await his turn. The BN hierarchy knows that the Incumbent MP is a WINNABLE AND TRUE BN LOYALIST. The person who assisted the MP Incumbent would not be in the political wilderness but will have an added advantage in his profiling.
The Incumbent MP is an experienced politician and has served in various state ministries and he stood in the Saratok seat during the CRITICAL INFIGHTING of SPDP. As a former President he still have fond memories of the party and he knows BN would want to win this seat at all cost. The Seat matters and BN will not jeorpadise it.
There are no buts and ifs and BN knows that PKR would want to capitalise on any weakness to win this seat P205.
Destroying the Fort would be defeat not only to BN but will be a total loss of the Development plans which the incumbent have put forward in Parliament.When he decides to step aside the next MP of Saratok will benefit greatly. It will be a continuity for the better good of Saratok.
The P205 FORT will remain a BN Bastion if all parties are working together to stop the opposition in their tracks.
Loyalty and Winnability are the conclusive attributes for BN candidacy.
