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.”
What 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.
