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

All Will be Settled

aa1135Much 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 …

 

SPDP or just PDP soon?

SPDP or PDPA 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……

 

 

BN Plus “U-Turn..Home comforts of Kam Pua Politics..!!”

aeeeeeIt’s a sucker punch.

According to a TERAS member and former SPDP SC,”We remember very well at the PRS headquarters in the Press Conference that James Masing said,”a certain personality” must not be there.” Now is it done just to derail the CM Adenan’s earlier masterplan?

After some investigative works, we were informed that prior to the afternoon Press Conference on May 15th 2014 when this plan was given the go-ahead of getting the “YBS without a home together” Mawan was still indecisive. How could he betray his good friend and ‘ally” in Tiong King Sing?

Mawan was in a dilemma or was he? …Wouldn’t you be..when you are about to betray a Friend of many years..?

In reality, he could be MISLED according to sources from the ground. It could be seen clearly who initiated the rebellion as per the press conference led by the former SPDP youth secretary and the former SPDP women secretary The  leaders and some ” hardcore” members of S.C. look at this as ‘opportunity” to teach Tiong a lesson and also to be given positions and other perks.

Politics changes all the time and their days are “numbered” and they will be scrapheap soon if the next phrase of Political re-alignment comes to fruition. They will have their names in the annals of the history books if ‘someone” decides to write.

The women secretary took herself out of the equation when she smelt a rat. She has since kept a low profile which is a credit to her. SPDP members who are still with the party have not forgotten about this episode and they will gladly welcome back their former President but of course the rests have to join the queue while some will end up put in a very cold and isolated freezer.

This was the PC,” Sixteen divisional Youth chiefs, claiming to represent 5,263 members, and 10 divisional Women chiefs, claiming to represent 10,000 members, announced they have quit Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP). http://www.theborneopost.com/2014/05/19/26-youth-and-women-division-chiefs-say-quitting-spdp-to-join-teras/

Led by former SPDP Youth secretary Khairuddin Abdul Kadir and former SPDP Women secretary Olivia Chan, they announced at a press conference yesterday that they wanted to join their former party president Tan Sri William Mawan in the newly formed Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras).”

How come SPDP is still very much intact they ask..? Who was the schemer?

If the leaders had ten of thousands party members with them no one would dispute that. If they dare to take the lead they will be the first to face the wrath of the political in coming storm. Please don’t put the blame that its the Chief Minister Adenans Plan. The whispering campaign plus ‘pokok goyang”have even gone as far as “Adenan failed”

What happened in the Pullman hotel where and when the YBS met and subsequent meetings does not point to Adenan? Lets get it clear ,don’t lah if its not working blame Mr.Oooh ha oooo ha oooo ha. The “so-called plotters” failed.

Mawan and Tiong should have “kampua mee “together and see where they can go from here.

Mawan is a survivor and a very tenacious one and he should know that those who promised the world in terms of numbers should not be championing for themselves anymore but be blown away like the mists.

They know who they are and they must be willing to take the fall. Mawan and Tiong love their ‘charkueh tiaw” and kampua mee.

Pic 1Masing has already won the battle. He won it without even a fight. He had the BN “merger of minds” . The 11 new allocated seats are a lifeline to Adenan. He knows it and he will use this to achieve his mandate. Adenan already spelt it out clearly where the battleground is. Its the rural areas and he will not sacrifice his high ground to the opposition and more so to the infighting between TERAS/SPDP.

The “Sarawak for Sarawakians” movement is another factor which must not be taken lightly especially in the rural areas where ‘drumming into the minds” does take effect to especially to the younger set of voters.

Adenan have informed the BN coalition partners and grassroots members know the ‘history”  of all the opposition parties and their members. He will plan everything before he calls for elections. He understands the situation but does Mawan,Tiong,Masing know whether he wants them to fight head-on or call for a strategic truce of some kind.

Adenan as commander in chief  would not take too much risks or chances. He will go back to his drawing board and assess. This must have  cropped up in his mind when he was the executor behind Taib Mahmud. Its time for his executors to also know.

” The D-Day invasion of Europe was one of the most thorougly organised in history. With 175000 troops from four countries involving 5000 ships.every detail was planned scientifically. The invasion was practised for months in various venues. During the run up to the invasion,the Allies created various “DECEPTIONS” about where and when the invasion would occur”

Sarawakians-must-realise_1024x576There must be a carefull balance and he knows the ‘dayak sentiments” and groundswell is gaining momentum as new and untested young dayak voters are very well informed. The dayaks would want very much to be “recognised and respected” after struggling to get a firm footing. If the Merger is realised there should not be U-Turn.

The BN candidate will be nominated by the party and agreed in principle by the BN4 team. of course its the prerogative of the BN State Chairman but he too needs to get the blessing from the overall BN Chairman. The BN candidate needs to be elected by the people and it is also up to the party to lobby for Ministerial posts. The final say in lobbying will be up to the Chief Minister as its his prerogative. That’s basically the standard operating procedure for all assemblymen.

In this Merger process the UPP/SUPP dilemma should not be brought up. The parties of PRS/SPDP/TERAS will be showing them the way and no one should stay in the way and act as spoiler. This could be used as a yardstick to show that even how bitter the pill it could be swallowed.

Mawan a veteran politician knows when the bricks are being pilled in, he of all people would not want to stay there and be buried under it. There are indications from our various sources that  Barisan Nasional leaders would welcome such a movement which will make BN stronger going into the State elections.

James loves a good kampua too and he does get it all the time when he pays a visit to Belaga which is also a PRS stronghold. Mawan and Tiong loves a Peninsular “Char Kueh Tiaw” but if invited by Tiong for a local foochow  “Kam Pua Mee” he would come. Having said that,”the rebellious few who only champions for themselves must be put in the back burner for now.

Joseph Entulu knows that PRS being a strong and solid party needs to look at all options first and he could put a stumbling block to the “merger of minds’ of PRS/SPDP/TERAS.

The enemy is not outside of BN. It is inside and those who don’t try to resolve their differences will not escape the eyes of the executors. The Commander in Chief besides the executors have his two Generals in Johari and Tengah those rebellious few will be spent force.

Adenan and his executors knows Sun Tze’s central thesis that is “YOU CAN AVOID FIGHTING WHEN YOU PLAN THE RIGHT STRATEGY

The first move has been initiated by SPDP in their August 16th Supreme Council meeting. Adenan knows the battlefield well and he has scars to prove it. Adenan cannot afford this large scale war amongst BN component  parties and BN friendly parties to continue. The opposition will capitalise and the voters will turn their backs especially so when there is infighting. Time to end all the bickering and go into battle as a solid front will be BN and Adenans chances of an overwhelming majority.

Then his Oooo ha’s will sent a strong signal to everyone that its his MANDATE ………

“SNAP Sarawak Elections 2015 ..??”

satem11What you see is what you get and when he says “Don’t mess with me” just be careful as he means what he says.

. CM Adenan is being seen as a beacon of hope for “Urbanites” who turned to and voted for the opposition. He can carry the fight to the opposition but its up to the ruling BN Urban leaders to up their ante and use Adenan to their advantage.

Of course Adenan is not a miracle worker nor a “Houdini” but he plans well and he expects his instructions to be carried through, executed and not just left in the drawers. The 4 BN component parties besides PBB,PRS are ready to “rock and roll” over the opposition if the elections are called as early as March/April 2015. SUPP has got their house in order it seems and so will SPDP by December 6th 2014 after their TGM. In the shadows lurks former party comrades UPP and TERAS who sees themselves ready to take over the mantle from them.

UPP have been sending strong signals to the BN administration they should not be discounted to be included in the BN plus formula. TERAS is concentrating on their 5 seats for now and strengthening their fort further by trying to take everything on the chin. CM Adenan has been singing his rendition,”Can’t help falling in Love with you” and the TERAS and UPP political boys are leaving it to the WISE MEN in the BN administration.

Of course there must be ‘goodies” served up on the platter for the returning “urban” voters or the rural voters who sees the BN government under Adenan is truly carrying out his promises.

 

Even this extract,” the opposition leaders too have praises for him.So far he’s saying the right things and doing the right things,” Sarawak state DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen said.

Then again, he said: “We’re still looking at him objectively and with an open mind”.One of the things Chong, who is Bandar Kuching MP and state assemblyman for Kota Sentosa, is supporting Adenan on is the latter’s stand on corruption.”

 

DAP,PKR and PAS have always harped on the level of corruption in the state and when DAP Chong is indeed tongue tight Adenan must be doing something REALLY RIGHT.

Even Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng told a group of Sarawak journalists who visited Penang recently.Adenan “He does not have skeletons in his closet.”

On this note will you be surprised that Adenan will go for the jugular and put his faith in his popularity and his actions rather than talk only and go for an early election. UPP AND TERAS problem will not hold so much as a “small hiccup” which cannot be solved amicably within the BN concept.

What Adenan has served up in the recently DUN sitting had even got PKR Chairman in Sarawak Baru Bian to inform his Pakatan colleagues that if Adenan continues with his ways, “opposition will run out of issues” to even go into the “battlefield” that is the Sarawak State elections.

The Federal BN Government leaders are all sipping coffee and smoking cigars knowing very well for now Adenan is a man on a mission. BN Sarawak will be returned to power after the 11th Sarawak State elections be it called in March/April 2014 or even later towards the end of the year.

Adenan knows the popularity statistics will wane if his men are not on the ground executing his instructions. He cannot afford to have it slowed down as the opposition and the voters will have a clearer picture if it falls short.

The elder and veteran leaders where some will have their political careers halted when Adenan puts his stamped in the administration must know how to let go or else they will also suffer the consequences that befell many before them.

IT WILL BE ADENAN’S CALL FOR THE SARAWAK ELECTIONS AND HE KNOWS BEST WHEN HE IS READY. ADENAN FOR NOW IS WARMING TO HIS TASKS AND HIS SEAT REMAINS COMFORTABLE UNTIL THE DETRACTORS ARE TRYING TO PUSH HIM TO THE EDGE

WILL YOU DARE TO MESS WITH HIM.?

 

 

BN Sarawak To lose “Fixed Deposit..?”

Extracted from Malaysiakini…

BN may lose Sarawak as its ‘fixed deposit’ in the coming state election if internal problems within Sarawak BN are not settled within the next 12 months, warned Parti Rakyat Sarawak president James Masing.

“The problems within SUPP and SPDP still persist and unless leaders within BN are willing to take the bull by the horns, the instability within Sarawak BN will create unnecessary headaches for the chief minister,” he said during the PRS 10th anniversary dinner in Kuching last night.

“It was most unfortunate and rather unnecessary that a new political party called Teras (Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak) was used by some disgruntled State Assemblymen just as Adenan Satem (Chief Minister of Sarawak) assumed the mantle of leadership.

“In fact, it was done as if orchestrated, on the very day Adenan (left) delivered his first winding up speech as the chief minister of Sarawak,” he added.

Masing, who is a senior minister and minister of land development, made it clear that PRS did not agree in the manner and the timing by which Teras was formed.

“And I assume that SUPP, SPDP and maybe some elements within PBB, also do not agree because it destabilises the newly appointed chief minister.

“Solutions to solve problems within SPDP and SUPP could have been handled in a manner which would have allowed the new chief minister time to adjust to his new position.

“It would have given him time to read the political landscape of Sarawak and then suggest the correct solutions,” he said.

“In trying to think of possible solutions, I recalled what Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said in his speech at the SUPP 23rd Delegates Conference in Kuching.

This is what he said: ‘You have gone through hell; I want you to come back stronger and ready to fight for BN. I believe in politics of principles’.

“The prime minister believed in politics of principles, and so does PRS. I also believe that the other BN component parties namely PBB, SUPP and SPDP also believe in this,” he said, pointing out that there are rules in BN which had over the years, bound the spirit of comradeship among BN component parties.

He added one of the rules, is that ‘admission to BN must be 100 percent consensus’.

“What this means is that if one party in BN objects, admission into BN family is impossible. This is the principle which Najib was talking about.

“I cannot see how UPP (United People’s Party) and Teras can get admitted to BN if we follow these principles.

“If admission of these two parties to BN is not possible, then another set of principles must apply in order to solve the current problem in Sarawak – that is principle of personal integrity.

“Among other things, All YBs concerned must look back to where they started and how did they got to where they are now,” he said.

‘Unity is strength’

Also saying unity is strength, Masing asserted that the four parties (PBB, PRS, SPDP and SUPP) must stand together.

“In order to win the 2016 state election, we must abide by BN rules. Thus this code of conduct among BN followers: you touch one you touch all’ must be practised with dedication and sincerity,” he added.

Masing said UPP which was formed by expelled SUPP leaders and Teras by expelled SPDP leaders, had been telling their supporters and members of the public that they are ‘already in BN’ by virtue of the fact that some of their leaders are in the state cabinet.

UPP is claiming 19 seats that SUPP is going to contest, while Teras is claiming eight seats which are allocated to SPDP.

“I believe all heads of BN component parties in Malaysia and in Sarawak think alike, sharing the same objectives, speaking from same page, sleep on the same bed and dream the same dreams,” he added.

“Unless we are humble enough to trim our egos, lean on and learn from each other, the 2016 state election and 2018 federal election will be worse – urban seats will go.

“The egos which have kept us apart will be dumped in the urban rubbish bins; we will be left with nothing but bruised pride. We will not be the administrators of this state,” he warned.

“Convergence of Thoughts”

SAME-BN2

Article Extracted from Borneo Posts.

The faction in Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras) led by Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh has left the party to join the newly registered United People’s Party (UPP) which was approved on July 14 this year by the Registrar of Societies (ROS).

Joining the senior minister in the new political entity will be former Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) elected representatives: Bengoh assemblyman Datuk Dr Jerip Susil, Dr Johnical Rayong Ngipa (Engkilili) and Ranum Mina (Opar).

This was announced at a press conference earlier today, where Wong explained the move was the best strategy for both former Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) and Sarawak Democratic Progressive Party (SPDP) elected representatives to move forward on separate platforms and mobilise to gather support for the Barisan Nasional.

However, former SPDP representatives Datuk Peter Nansian Ngusie (Tasik Biru), Rosey Yunus, (Bekenu), Datuk Sylvester Entri Muran (Marudi) and Paulus Palu Gumbang (Batu Danau) remain in Teras with Tan Sri William Mawan Ikom.
