This was the scene at 11.15pm today. Tomorrow’s a working day but the folks over there are staying put to listen to political speeches.

The BN holds all three state seats in the Sibu parliamentary constituency: PBB controls one (Nangka, 4815-vote majority in 2006) and Supp two: Pelawan (263-vote majority) and Bawang Assan (2504-vote majority

Over in Limbang, at a 50-table DAP dinner, donations to the party have surpassed expectations. “Extraordinary unbelievable Donation Limbang breaks all Swak g/e records – RM26,759! Testimony strength of hurricane in Swak. Najib take note,” tweets Kit Siang. “Told Limbang crowd Najib has lost confidence in Taib n virtually taken over Swak BN g/e campaign. Does this presage entry of Umno into Swak?”

There are two state seats in the Limbang parliamentary constituency: PBB’s Abdul Rahman Ismail won Bukit Kota in 2006 by a 3229-vote majority against two independents. This time, Abdul Rahman is up against a DAP candidate and two independents. In Batu Danau, SPDP’s Palu@Paulus Palu Anak Gumbang emerged victorious in 2006 over a Snap candidate by a 1262-vote majority. Palu will now square off against candidates from PKR and Snap.

A week’s campaign cannot reverse the feelings Sarawakians have against BN. Peh Moh said that it was he who talked Najib into releasing the Malay language Bible. But did he also tell Najib to ensure that the Bible became an issue so that he could show that he had an influence, like the usual two-hand game? To make it seem real, Pek Moh said that it was stupid of Putrajaya to stamp and deface the Bible. He had selected Kerismuddin as the fall-guy; Kerisman can’t ever stand straight, with the quality of the grey matter residing between his two years.… Read more »

The opposition have a chance to really turn on the burner with the Dayaks this time around, with Taib guaranteed to be ask to step down after the election, its now about WHO to replace him. Oppositition should tell the Dayaks, the bigger the vote against the BN, the better the candidate will be – if they want a Dayak … then they need to vote as big as possible against BN…

Well done, folks of Sarawak, let us once and for all “bury” SUPP like how Penangnites “bury” Gerakan/MCA/MIC with their votes! It is now your time Sarawakians! Just let us clean Malaysian politics of dirty and corrupt practises and politicians! Also let us wipe out all racists political parties! We must be one united Malaysian to take on the global world economically. Never never be fooled by BN again and never never allow dishonest politicians to divide and rule us! Show them we are their boss. Vote Pakatan Rakyat and make sure DAP wins the 15 seats it is contesting.… Read more »

We must not just hope, but must vote to make change happen. Please help to inform the rural people that the opposition party can bring development to them once they have the access to the state development fund when elected.

The very fact that many turned up for opposition ceramah has shown that people are thirsty for change,he being tired of the rhetorics of BN. No wonder Najib has to make alternative plan to base himself in Sarawak this week to help in campaining.
