Mussen is the BN candidate

Borneo Post, 21 March 2009

The Prime Minister has endorsed Malcolm Mussen Lamoh, 49, as the Barisan Nasional candidate for the N.29 Batang Ai by-election yesterday.

We may see a three corner fight in the by-election. PEGARI publisher, Johnny Chuat has indicated that he may be contesting and members of his portal has made the announcement to recruit volunteers to assist him in his campaign. I see Johnny as a major threat to Pakatan Rakyat because he will be seen as a more suitable candidate to champion the Ibans in Batang Ai. He is young and energetic. He is also a close friends to the Pakatan Rakyat’s campaigners, too. Good luck, kaban! You know you can deliver better than the PR candidate.

Pakatan Rakyat endorses Jawah Gerang

Jawah Gerang

The Broken Shield reported that PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim is expected to officially announce Jawah as the candidate at his longhouse at Sayat, Lubok Antu on Sunday, 22 March.

I give my salute to uncle Edwin Dundang for not fielding SNAP candidate in this by-election.

Dayaks in full gear

MIRI: Sarawak Opposition parties are roping in native landowners from all over the state to be in Batang Ai with Opposition leaders on their campaign trails.

The Star learnt that the Opposition leaders at district and sub-district levels had organised meetings with the natives who were unhappy with the government because of disputes over land rights. Most of them are embroiled in native customary land ownership disputes with state development agencies and private consortiums that are involved in logging, oil palm plan­tations and hydroelectric dam construction.

The landowners comprise Ibans, Kayans, Kenyahs and Penans.

Recently, some of them from Ulu Baram came to Miri and held a gathering to discuss their trip to Batang Ai. A former councillor was among them.

“We want to share our problems with the people of Batang Ai because we know that they are also facing similar problems,” one in the group said.

Asked who was sponsoring their trip, he said there were “many sympathisers” who were willing to help them.

Asked if any particular towkay (businessman) was one of them, he said: “There are many towkay who are already on the side of the Opposition.”

Apparently the Ulu Baram group will be joined by others from Niah, Bakun, Belaga, Kapit, Sarikei, Sri Aman, Serian and places near Batang Ai.

Uchu Keling says: Barisan Nasional will be facing a tough fight with Jawah Gerang and considers Johnny Chuat as merely testing his popularity in Batang Ai and in Lemanak specifically.
