After Sarawak setback, what next for BN?

KUALA LUMPUR, April 18 Barisan Nasional (BN) lost significant ground in its stronghold of Sarawak during Saturdays state assembly election, setting the stage for a shift in government and economic policy as Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak works to regain support.

The government recorded its worst performance in 24 years in the poll in a result analysts say reflects the mood across the country, which could prompt Najib to switch tack in his plan to recapture the ethnic minority vote and restructure the economy to catch up with Asian neighbours.

In Saturdays poll, the opposition won 15 seats in Sarawaks 71-seat state legislature, giving the ruling BN coalition a two-thirds majority. But it was the coalitions worst performance in Sarawak since 1987 when it won only 25 of 45 seats.

Following are questions and answers on how the poll outcome could reshape Malaysian political and financial policy.

1.Free Sarawak from their grasp…
2.Leave us to 20% oil royalty so than Sarawakian Oil price is Cheaper then West Malaysia…
3.Make CMS retire earlier…

Najib can do this:-

  1. No UMNO in Sarawak forever;
  2. More funds for Sarawak development especially more hospitals/Clinics, better schools, better/more roads, more jobs opportunities in government, more scholarships for sarawakian, etc
  3. Give Sarawakian the highest post in all federal agencies in Sarawak
  4. Yeahh…20% Oil revenue please…

20% oil revenue? Sell them (tanah semenanjung) full price of crude oil or processed oil, anything we get full payment. Why should we get 20% only when it is our oil they dig in our own backyard? who are we? whores? begger? even geylang whores charge full rate. With this we can drop the process fuel for domestic (sarawak/sabah only) consumption price to the minimal possible. Nothing is impossible.

Only thing they will do is give the kampung people Electric and water pipe. That should be enough for them to hold vote at their side.

Since MCA / Gerakan / SUPP have failed to help BN capture non-Malay votes since 308, I’m sure they will now concentrate their effort in the Malay votes to help them survive through the next GE. So expect more racial & religious rhetorics from Perkasa, Utusan and those so called NGOs. Also double effort to undermine Anwar and PKR since they can potentially split the Malay votes.

Well, if we want more than 20%, Sarawak might as well just leave Malaysia no?

Hahah, they’ve been saying that since 5 years ago, but untill now, many are still using diesel generators and yet BN is giving them things like Labtops, TV, Electronics, etc. but there’s still no electricity there… :roll:
