The Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) which is a BN partner is today slapped in the face by a BN veteran YB Sagah. Sarawakians know that SPDP is already trying to survive an internal squabble and such a statement in the press from a BN member of the house will not make its flamboyant President Mawan happy at all. Will he confront the man head-on or like the cool person he seems to be, shrugged it off lightly. Roland Sagah, a member of the state house has of late been disturbed by the bad mouth of some “SPDP linked groups” in his constituency.
The interesting thing is the Balloons are now bursting in Sarawak's BN. It looks like some BN stalwarts are now opening up and opening up quick with perhaps the PRS President as the man to watch. Indirectly they are sending a message to the old man Taib that his time is up to play any more magic. The PRS President Masing and his lieutenants are adamant that the state seat of Pelagus belongs to the Ibans and PRS and not to the Taib favored Larry Sng. They have echoed over and over again that PRS will not budge over its rightful claim on Pelagus.
Ironically, the PM‘s call for direct BN membership has also received a lukewarm welcome from the BN YBs in Sarawak. There wasn’t much support for it in the press and that calls for concern. On the other hand, we can assume that the man happiest to hear the “direct entry” stuff is Larry. It means that his ride to be re appointed the candidate in Pelagus will not be that bumpy.
