UMNO Elections Closely Watched by PBB too.

pbb&umno_The focus after the Hari Raya Celebrations will turn to two(2) BN component parties. UMNO will hold their elections on October 5th 2013. Any movements will definitely be closely watched by all as the outcome of the UMNO elections affects the leadership of the country.

The Tiff between Tun Mahathir and Tun Abdullah is being monitored very closely. There are also clear indications that camps are already mushrooming. Many in the social media blogs, mass-media fraternity and bloggers aligned to their respective camps are already “ON TOP” of these developments.

Many in the “UMNO family” will be divided as to their choices of  candidates and though the fight might be very bitter it might even caused ‘some permanent damage“. It is only normal to have elections in a democratic process but once the elections are over everyone must be able to accept the lists of elected officials and close ranks. It’s of course easier said than done.

The UMNO elections will also have some effect on the local based BN strongest component party PBB. The youth elections will be again be the centre of attention as there are nearly more than half over 45’s who are ineligible to be part of the movement. Even the incumbent Youth Chief Fadillah Yusof who is now the Minister of Works is still undecided on his posts.

The Wanita Wing will see some changes at the helm as it will only be relevant to have an assemblyman or an MP to helm the wing. This might not go down very well with the current Wanita Chief former Senator Empiang who led the wing very well and have succeeded in grooming able leaders in Rohani, Nancy and Fatimah who are all full State and Federal Ministers.

The rantings, divisional meetings will go full swing to pick the leaders who will be the next echelon leaders to lead the party way beyond 2020 if their paths are politically destined.

The Top Leadership and Supreme Council seats might not see much changes but they will be a lot of horse-trading. It’s a clear signal from many YBs when we went on the ground that they will see that the No.1 and No.2 posts be maintain at status quo.

It does mean that the President of PBB Taib Mahmud and current Chief Minister of Sarawak will have unanimous support from all the 71 divisions to lead them for another 3 years.

When and What the party PBB has decided it will be foolhardy for anyone to signal even the slightest hint that they are about to take over. The Party President has indicated that his successor is not only the Chief Minister for one race but for all races in Sarawak. This will be the yardstick which not only UMNO leaders have to toe the line but all who are within the FRAMEWORK OF THE STATE ADMININISTRATION.

The ball has been rolled by some UMNO face bookers and bloggers aligned to certain leaders and they will use this social media machinery to their fullest advantage. Those who think that their grassroots are strong without using this technology have something coming their way.

PBB leaders will also not want to be caught out without making use of the ready made machinery and they too are promoting themselves to be seen,heard and most of all acceptable by the ones who matters most.

UMNO elections will have a determining factor on PBB and though some say no way but truthfully they know its a FACT.

EXPECT SOME VERY UNEASINESS  WHEN  THINGS HOTS UP DURING BOTH THESE ELECTIONS 

ARE YOU READY…!!!

We’ve said”Khairy Not So Easily written off”

sec_kj_011

On October 18th 2008 I wrote  “Khairy’s days are numbered”. Today against all odds when many within UMNO “Khairy,Oooh No way and also NOooo chance.. ” he proved them all wrong. First of all we congratulate those who always proves otherwise.

This we wrote thenon 18/10/08,”A veteran politician said to me over coffee at the MCA assembly,” He is being pushed to the wall and he will come out fighting.Believe me.” I smiled and said to myself and Khairy himself an Oxford graduate will have learnt the ‘British Bulldog spirit” and learnt from Sir Winston Churchill,”Victory at all costs,victory however long and hard the road maybe,for without victory there is no survival.”  So do you think Khairy’s days are NUMBERED..?  

Why had I so much FAITH  in the man Khairy..? Maybe its the British 4 seasons weather and education that has had an affect on our lives and as fighters we always come out fighting. I dislike  the word “AP” “Angkat P….” or “Apple Polishing” but when they are good and when the walls are caving in these qualities will shine. Khairy has shown it and many others too before him..Kuddos to those who believe in the “Perserverance the mother of All Successes

So Khairy Jamaluddin has snatched victory from the jaws of defeat by winning the much-coveted Umno Youth chief. His 304 votes was  a majority 50 against Mohd Khir Toyo (254) and 72 over Mukhriz Mahathir (232).  Related article:- https://audie61.wordpress.com/2008/10/09/96-to-78-an-early-boost/

We say as always,” Good man will always come out fighting no matter what obstacles are infront of them. You can’t keep a good man SILENT..Remember That.”GIVE CREDIT WHEN IT’s DUE…  

“This is A Significant Date..April 15th Empress Dowagers”

The UMNO elections,President of UMNO,by elections would be done, over and dusted but April 15th seems to be a rather significant date. Malaysians would be wondering whether that will be the day when PM Abdullah officially hands over the reins. Could it be so obvious and clear cut now?

What got me wondering is this firstly,”Fuel Price cash rebate extended to April14th.” The claim period was supposed to end on March 31 but the Government has agreed to extend it for an additional two weeks, Pos Malaysia said.  

Secondly,Tun Mahathir spoke on the possibility of a “motion of confidence” be tabled in Parliament to have Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi remained as the Prime Minister. It’s a possibility; it’s not against the law. The law provides that to be the prime minister, you must have the support of the majority in Parliament but it does not say from which party.

Thirdly,Ali Rustam and Taib would play major starring roles in the coming weeks and its PAYBACK TIME according to some political analysts. Its not so much 007 “From Russia with Love” but Badawi’s,”Malaysia with love”.

Abdullah has been saddened by events happening in which it seems not all his men are only being targetted but also the opening of an old wound and spat between Mahathir and himself which does not want to go away.

Events moved so fast when Abdullah was out of the country in Brunei and in Indonesia. This will have hurt him more as speculations are such that Mahathir is going on an overdrive and wants to remove Abdullah soonest.

Najib must know what happened to Anwar when he was about to ascend the PM throne. He needs no reminding and he will be overly cautious. Nothing will escape him but it seems a number of Empress Dowagers will bite back at Najib.

Who then are the Empress Dowagers who will stop Najib at all costs? Take your pick and even Najib could not have seen it coming. An hour in politics is a long time and the scheming behind by the Empress Dowagers who has incredible influences cannot be discounted. There have 3 weeks to weild their swords and for all we know its already in place.

Unless Najib is sworn in as the PM in an official ceremony then he is safe. If not,the waiting game will be just like what Mahathir had said“Abdullah Badawi has to go . . . He’s the most despised man in the country. He’s not just a lame duck but a dead horse.”

Mahathir knows that legally the current prime minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi could continue serving his term until the next general election if he wanted to. So he is pushing Najib and also Muhyddin but also aggravating not only Ali Rustam but also Muhd Mohammad Taib with his overzealous comments.  

We say as always,”  Could Najib be caught with his PANTS down? No wonder Anwar was grinning and smiling when he left after the lunch meeting Pak Lah.The Empress Dowagers are at their deadliest when their backs are up the wall. Interesting…???

Oouch..Suspension Charges Belted Out..?”

A month and a week ago I wrote on CHAP GOH MEI“ in which I mentioned “It was a Monday full of “twists and turns”in Malaysia. I remembered Boomtown Rats song in July 1979 when I was in England doing my ‘A’ levels” I Don’t Like Mondays” was a UK number one single.

Today, Parliament and UMNO has taken the limelight and both these issues are on everyones lips be it in Malaysia or in the International  arena. So who loves and who doesn’t like Mondays? Any offers….

It all started in Parliament and this is extracted from Malaysiakini,”Minister in the PM’s department Nazri Abdul Aziz’s motion to suspend Puchong member of Parliament Gobind Singh for 12 months was passed in Parliament today.

Even when Lim Kit Siang mentioned that a seven-day notice should have been issued before it is debated it was rebutted flatly by the Speaker of the House, Pandikar Amin Mulia. He said,”it should be debated now since ‘Parliament is no longer like a first-world Parliament anymore’

So Gobinds day took a turn for the worse as This Monday is a Monday that he does not particular like or fond of. Gobind is suspended with immediate effect, without salary, allowances and perks. Gobind must have gone to a place where no one would hear him shouting and singing to the tune of Boomtown Rats,” I Don’t Like Mondays”

It seems that just as Gobind has finished singing his song we were also alerted by an sms. “Check out Malaysiakini“. Wow !! Could this be happening to UMNO?  Yesterday we read about “Mr.Likeable” in the NST and the interview.

Today some one must have made it a Monday where he will also sing,”  I Don’t Like Mondays” Its only speculations and we would not know whats coming until it happens. But its like a BRICK ON THE FACE on this Monday for anyone suspected of money politics which may or may not lead to an immediate suspension which very much depends on the findings.

Malaysiakini extracts,”All eyes are on the Umno disciplinary committee meeting tomorrow following widespread rumours that a senior party leader, who is slated to contest in the upcoming Umno polls, could be suspended for money politics.In Umno circles, the name of the particular leader, who is known among the delegates as ‘Mr Likeable’, has also been openly mentioned.

MCPX

We say as always,”  Pretty sure Gobind will be belting out Boomtown Rats I Don’t Like Mondays but the UMNO aspirants will be hoping that the sms alerts  flying around will be just mere rumours on this Monday. Oouch it will hurt someone..!!!

“Democracy at Work..Brilliant..!!!”~ ref Malaysiakini

Today,I had the pleasure to meet one of Sharizat’s trusted lieutenants as she was on a stoppover enroute to KL to show support to her boss. She said to me,”Ask not what the country can do for you BUT what you can do for the country.” She says the BOSS feels that she needs to do more and something is just not done eventhough the defeat by Anwars daughter Nurul is behind her. How ironic and its confirmed now that they will be a contest as she answered the phone. Brilliant and thats just what UMNO needs.

In Malaysiakini today it is reported  http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/93457Wanita Umno deputy chief Sharizat Abdul Jalil today announced that she will contest for the wing’s top post next year.

MCPX

sharizat abdul jalil 01Sharizat, who was appointed as a special adviser to the prime minister after the March 8 elections, made the announcement via a two-paragraph statement this afternoon.

“Wanita Umno must be united in strengthening the party as well as be bold in bringing about changes and renewal,” she said.

“3 M’s for No.2 Posts”~ ref Malaysiakini

umno-elections1

Coincidental don’t you think..? So what..? Does it matter..? Malaysiakini has also this as the headlines: Three in fight for deputy UMNO post http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/92735 . The three are former Selangor Menteri Besar Muhammad Muhd Taib, two present vice-presidents Muhyiddin Yassin and Mohd Ali Rustam.

The question is as to who will become Najib’s deputy from the trio of Muhyiddin, Muhd Taib and Mohd Ali. The contest next March is the first for the deputy president’s post in 21 years. By convention, the deputy president is slated to be the deputy premier. So which M will be the Deputy to Najib.?

As for Sarawak,Alfred Jabu is the present dayak deputy Chief Minister. We would not have to look for too for these three gentleman.There seems also to be three M’s in line for the deputy posts in Masing,Mawan and Manyin. Will the deputies for Malaysian and Sarawak be all M’s? The top posts will be N and the No.2 will be M.

Do we need to look far for Sarawak’s new CM? It must be someone with the initial N. Hmmm, look around you and find someone with the intial N and his chances will be pretty good. Coincidence but they always say one’s political career is already written in your stars. Would you not believe it?
