Iban areas zoomed in on final day of campaign

With two more days of campaigning, DAP may emerge a winner if the Barisan Nasional is not careful. With Dato Sri Anwar Ibrahim’s arrival in Sibu late tomorrow evening, and to conclude the by-election campaign for Wong Ho Leng in style with the Iban/Dayak and Malay voters.

The Pakatan Rakyat campaigners are closing in on the Dayak voters at RPR Batu 6, with a breakfast date with Anwar Ibrahim on the last day of campaign. He is also having lunch with the Ibans at Sg. Tutus and dinner at Penasu! Will this Ibans change their mind and vote for Wong Ho Leng (DAP)?

I delivered what I promised – Najib

Dato Sri Najib, the best promise would be to build a totally new township. The RM1billion would be best spend on this new township, rather than spending it on flood mitigation that sees the mighty Rajang pouring more silt. The other reason why the new generation move or migrated away from Sibu was because of the mighty Bakun Dam upstream. People were scared that the dam may crack and cause a major disaster beyond our imagination.

Furthermore, by building a new township that is at a distance from the Rajang River, and at a higher ground, the government may regain its confidence from the people once again by providing safe and flood-free residential and industrial areas.

Where? Any suggestion.. The government have so much land between Sibu Batu 10 to Pekan Selangau.. where else? It is nearer to the new Mukah township, Bintulu Port (to cater for larger vessels), Similajau and is also within SCORE development area.

With what it stands today (Thursday) Sibu may see an additional DAP member of parliament this 16th May. Not to late to turn the table, tho! DAP 1,500 or BN 5,000 majority.. work it out!!

The Sibu by-election is a testing ground for many politician on the effectiveness of the Internet in getting their message across to the voters. The Sibu parliamentary by-election also see the launching of the BN candidate’s personal website.

I believe the website main target group is the young, IT-savvy and first-timer Chinese voters. Most of the content are in Chinese, hence it will not serve the non-Chinese (for the time being).

The website will serve as an example to other politicians who wants to publish their activities and most importantly the messages and issues right from their own notebook. That’ll fill up the editing done by the mainstream media.

I want one too

So, Yang Berhormat sekalian.. what do you need to get a personal website up?

  1. A person who can write about your activities, knows how to operate the video camera (and edit it), knows how to operate the digital camera (and knows the good angle to shoot)
  2. A webmaster – no need to get those with master degree to do this. Anyone who knows how to manage cPanel (the most common application), a WordPress blog and get it all networked with other social network sites.
  3. Don’t pay them too little. You pay peanuts, you’ll get monkeys hahahaaa..
  4. And, please do not expect all the content to be there. You need time to gather all the documents, photos to make an informative site. So, it means, do not launch your website when the election is being announce. Do it NOW!

Snippets

PAS is sending a large team to Sibu for the by-election obviously to help their fellow opposition candidate to win this by-election. Their target area are the Malay/Melanau majority. PAS is a believer of Islamic law in Malaysia and they are pursuing it. On the other hand, the DAP has always maintain their stand that Islamic law should not be use in Malaysia. Confusing isn’t it? You need a dancing to balance it, kan? Vote for Barisan Nasional!
