THE date of the 13th Malaysian General Election (GE) still remains elusive, uncertain and becoming a guessing game in the minds of Malaysia- political analysts, some predicts it will be held within this year and a long list of another predictions.

The one thing certain is GE must be held before 2013 and when the times comes, other state assemblies but Sarawak would usually dissolved at the same time as the Federal Parliament.

In 2008 GE, Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition only garned 140 seats, giving it its worst result since independence with the opposition Pakatan Rakyat winning 82 seats, thereby denying the BN its two-thirds majority which is required to pass amendments to the Federal Constitution. 

Now UnReportedNews™® is not going to touch on the first major setback (four states under opposition's grasps, actually it was five but captured back BN after a defection) by the BN since the 1969 but the second most thought (the first is the 13th GE's date) playing in the mind of most Sarawakians.


With a "conflict" presently stirring-up in Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) and an obviously would-be "power tussle" over the main rein of Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP), BN Sarawak needs to think clearly on this question.

PLEASE be realistic about this and no more of the standard answer, "Yes, BN election machinery are always ready for any election because we are always on the ground with the people."

Bear in mind that while you were with the people, the OPPOSITIONS are also doing the same thing (with the people) but of course we cannot see most of their activities as most of the medias are being "controlled".


There is however, still sufficient time to ensure the 13th GE's result will be on the good side of BN Sarawak but PLEASE don't wait too long because the present brewing of Thunder & Storm could turned into catastrophe and at that time it would be a little bit too late.



DESPITE of the alleged attempts to "sabotage" Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) President Tan Sri Datuk Sri William Mawan Ikom's visit to Ulu Teru 23rd October (today), Mawan bravely instructed that the "show must go on" for him to meet the people there.

Earlier on Friday, SPDP's Deputy Secretary General Paul Igai had stated that the President will be visiting Ulu Teru as scheduled after being given "clearance" by the police who was said to had been surveying and studying the area for any would be "potential threats" on Mawan and his group during the visit.

According to a post posted in audie61 blog, “Eventhough the root of the problem in SPDP ‘security threat” has been identified the authorities concerned are not taking any chances on the visit of SPDP President William Mawan together with MP Baram Jacob Sagan and his entourage to Ulu Teru for a function on 23rd October 2011.

A transport coordinator told audie61 that over 40 four wheel vehicles will make their journey to Marudi and there will also be party supporters coming all the way from as far as Kuching. The people from outside are mainly the Supreme Council,Divisional leaders and exco’s from various divisions of SPDP throughout the state. A local crowd of over 3000 is anticipated to welcome the President for this official function. This is also to launch the SPDP Baram parliamentary election machinery.

Earlier a police report was recorded from Henry Gomes,the chieftain of Kampung Mission Ulu Teru in tinjar Baram District and community leaders Abuk Jabu together with Kalang Amin who were held up in a room against their wishes to sign a prepared statement to stop Mawan from attending the function.

Henry told the press,”I said I did not want to sign,but the leader said we had to.Abuk and Kalang were also forced to sign”

“In view of the disagreements involved in the political war of words the police are not taking any chances and are ready for any eventualities. There are conflicting reports on the ground that another group is looking at ways to disrupt the function and they have been told that it is not wrong to “shout abuses and do some heckling behind to provoke the situation,” 

This is completely normal in political rallies anywhere in the world but it will be among the first to happen in this peaceful area of Ulu Teru if it happens. The SPDP5 are getting desperate and they are slowly penned in and they will resort to whatever means and ways to score some political points, posted audie61.

Mawan had made his move and "checked" SPDP5, UnReportedNews™® wonders what's their next move going to be or either Mawan had "check-mated" them or they have other "contingency-moves" after this tucked under their sleeves.

SARAWAK Progressive Democratic People’s (SPDP) Party President Tan Sri Dato Sri Mawan Ikom (pic) held an “emergency meeting” at his house at Stapok, Batu Kawa near the city here on Thursday evening.

Although it was a “closed-door meeting”, a source close to Mawan told UnReportedNews™® that among the main issue discussed in the meeting was on the proposal for postponing of the Ulu Teru function which was supposed to be scheduled to be held sometime next week due to “security aspect”.

The source also disclosed that among those attending the meeting were the SPDP members and close aides to the President.

“There was however, some differences of opinion regarding on the proposal to postpone the Ulu Teru visit,” said the source adding some suggested that the Ulu Teru function must proceed as postponing it has “negative implications” while some thought the otherwise.

“SPDP has not called off the (Ulu Teru) function yet but the party are trying to verify the security aspect in the area on Friday (21st October) and they will be working with the police to verify security aspect first as there is a doubt as to an allegation of threat involved,” added the source.

UnReportedNews™® however, could not verify whether any police report was already lodged or otherwise by the President’s quarters regarding to the alleged “threat” incident.

Several hours earlier, a pro-Mawan blog posted that the Ulu Teru function scheduled to be headed by Mawan with the Member of Parliament for Baram Jacob Sagan and his supporters to Marudi on this coming 23rd of October 2011 has been postponed.

It was also said that the function was called off by the Special Branch (SB) police as there is a possibility of a “threat” to the President and his entourage.

According to the blog, a reliable source disclosed that the SB had also called Member Parliament for Mas Gading Dr Tiki Lafe and Tasik Biru States Assemblyman Datuk Peter Nansian to their office after receiving a directive from the Bukit Aman SB.

Despite these “obstacles”, Mawan was said still keen to go ahead with the program however, decided to postpone it until being given “clearance” by the police. 

Until press time, Mawan has yet to give any official statement regarding on the meeting at his house.
