SPDP and PRS “Mutaah” Marriage?

SUPP welcomes merger: Sim

The Borneo Post Press ( Monday, 23th June 2008)

SPDP-PRS entity expected to enhance cooperation among BN component parties

KUCHING: Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) welcomes the merger of Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) and Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) although the enlarged entity will certainly dislodge it (SUPP) from its position as the second largest party in the state.

“Whether SUPP is No. 2 or No.3 is not that important. In the Barisan Nasional the equal rights of every component party is what matters most,” SUPP secretary-general Senator Datuk Sim Kheng Hui told reporters here yesterday.

Sim asserted that BN component parties must be “friendly” and respect each other since each (party) represented its own people or racial group.

“I don’t think being No. 2 is that important. Moreover, such status cannot last long. It has taken some time for SPDP and PRS to discuss the merger, which SUPP views with an open mind.”



Khairy Jamaludin describe Pakatan Rakyat as “mutaah” marriage when DAP, Keadilan Rakyat and PAS intended to work as an opposition team on the last pre-election. Well, its proven that political “mutaah” was really worked and Kahiry could no resist it. Even the Prime Minister constituency is felled down to opposition. Barisan Nasional has been a “bad husband” to UMNO and let all those kids playing at the ground until the dark. Whenever the child cry for food or water, the parent (BN and UMNO) will react like a lovely father. Somehow, the family has never live in such a harmony way because the father has all the properties and did dot inherit them to his children equally. MCA and MIC is two big brothers in Barisan Nasional while Gerakan and PPP are adopted brothers. GERAKAN is a running puppy under MCA and so to PPP.

In Sabah, UMNO was made by Tun Mustapha to be a bad father to the state. The downfall of Berjaya and other aborigines parties in Sabah has opened a wide door to bandits from Peninsular to rule in Sabah like a Pirate of South East Chinese Sea. That was the time when PBS was called “opposition”. Sabah lives under struggle though the CM is alternate according to race. The only different is that Musa Aman who is from UMNO has not step down yet. UMNO made Sabahan as “slave on their very own mother land. They are landless and have no identity as Malay (Muslim) is spreading tremendously. Nevertheless, these UMNO “legitimate son” has been threat as the force labor under minimum wages. It is like the old labor where they were paid RM 5 to RM 7 per day. PBS, UPKO, SAPP and UMNO were working under disputes where distribution of power is unequal to those parties. Will those non UMNO merge to form a strong party?

Sarawak has shown its serial of several downfalls from their merging party. The strongest coalition of tribes is PBB under Pehin Sri. What is the quality of this party actually? Should it be the quality of leadership or other matter? To me, it is the effectiveness of leadership approached practices by the president. “Dictatorship democracy” seems to be effective to rule the divided clans in Sarawak. What is the best so called merged SDPD and PRS can do for the Dayak in general? Will this be the political awakening to the Dayak after SNAP and PBDS have proven us failure? Should we expect separation in few years to come? Let say for 2 or three terms? Hope to see that the Dayak is united under one political party since the multi-racial parties had failed us.
