LDP oh LDP...

Lately, LDP's Datuk Chin Su Phin has been making outrageous statements in the media. He seems to be hell bent to replace YAB Datuk Seri Musa Aman as a Chief Minister of Sabah.

Here's my take on the issue.

(1) Deputy President of LDP is free to raise any issue in BN supreme council meeting. This is not the first time nor last Datuk Chin Su Phin wants to bring his personal grouses to the Prime Minister's attention.
But as I see it, the Prime Minister and his deputy, on so many occasions, have publicly shown their appreciation toward the tireless efforts made by the state government and the Chief Minister in ensuring all communities in Sabah are not left out from the unprecedented economic growth and creating political stability for the state.

But a word of advice. Apportioning blame when you see the Prime Minister will be met with cold stares. It is just not his favourite subject.

(2) Instead of continuosly running down the popular Chief Minister for his personal gains, I advice Chin Su Phin to start preparing his party for the general elections. There is a lot to be done and time is not on our side.

Actually there is a lot to expect from a Deputy President of a component party.

First of all, he must carry that position with observation of decorum. A Deputy President must be seen as a debonair gentleman, with a degree of political sophistication and correctitude.

(3) At a working level, as a Deputy President, he must increase voters registration, increase membership drive, conduct dry-runs, do "kajian sikap" for his party. Chin must go down to the areas where his party hold incumbencies and listen and solve the rakyat's problems. Have these been done? If not, I am afraid the risk of his party being seen as an "easy meat" by the DAP in the next elections will be very real indeed.

I am sure Chin Su Phin will not want to be desribed as a trigger happy cowboy who walks into the high-noon duel and starts shooting from the hip, not knowing his bullet ricochets and hits him back in the head. That would be a political suicide.

  2. Assalamualaikum datuk
    Pilihanraya Sarawak baru-baru ini menunjukkan perubahan yang amat ketara dimana rata-rata pengundi cina lebih bersifat menyokong parti pembangkang berbanding kerajaan barisan nasional. Ada yang menyatakan bahawa keadaan ini berlaku akibat daripada isu-isu yang ditimbulkan oleh pihak pembangkang dalam meraih undi yang bersifat isu perkauman dan keagamaan yang menyebabkan masyarakat cina berpaling arah. Keadaan ini menyebabkan masyarakat lain memandang negative akan masyarakat cina berikutan tindakan mereka sehinggakan ada yang melabel mereka sebagai rakus dan ingin menakluk negara dalam semua aspek.

    Tetapi adakah benar mereka rakus? Bagi saya tidak. Apa yang berlaku adalah disebabkan oleh kurangnya kefahaman masyarakat ini akan hal keadaan sebenar, hak-hak antara kaum yang termaktub didalam perlembagaan yang mewujudkan negara, kepentingan dalam memelihara hak tersebut dan kelebihan yang mereka miliki dalam aspek ekonomi. begitu juga dengan masyarakat melayu dan bumiputera yang bertindak untuk menyokong parti lawan disebabkan oleh pemahaman mereka yang salah terhadap kerajaan dan juga isu.

    kita tidak boleh menuding jari kearah masyarakat kerana mereka lebih mendengar dan mempercayai isu yang di gembar-gemburkan oleh pembangkang kerana sedar atau tidak, pihak pembangkang lebih menguasai dunia maklumat, terutamanya siber berbanding pihak kerajaan persekutuan. Taip sahaja perkataan seperti ‘barisan nasional’ atau ‘najib’ dan yang menguasai isu adalah kritikan pedas keatas pihak kerajaan. Begitu juga dengan youtube yang turut dikuasai mereka.

    Generasi masa kini lebih cenderung untuk mendapatkan dan memahami sesuatu isu bukan melalui saluran perdana, tetapi melalui internet. Internet telah menjadi saluran perdana yang baharu dan kerajaan gagal dalam usaha untuk menguasai arus perdana yang baharu ini. Pihak pembangkang juga lebih tersusun, sistematik dan ‘connected’ dalam menyebarkan dakyah mereka yang memberikan impak yang lebih berkesan berbanding pihak kerajaan yang dilihat tidak cekap dalam menyampaikan isu dan menjelaskan keadaan. Dijangka pada tahun 2050, kita tidak lagi membaca akhbar dan menonton berita di tv, maka amat padah bagi kerajaan dalam menghadapi impak ini.

    Oleh itu, kerajaan haruslah berusaha untuk mencari inisiatif bagi menguasai dunia siber. Dengan ini, kerajaan mampu untuk menyampaikan maklumat dan juga penjelasan kepada rakyat. Rakyat bukannya salah dalam memilih parti, tetapi mereka salah dalam membaca maklumat. Sehubungan itu, kerajaan bertanggungjawab mengkaji pola atau 'pattern' generasi kini dalam mencapai maklumat dan menjadi tugas kerajaan juga dalam menyampaikan maklumat sebenar dengan berkesan. Maaf Datuk kerana saya telah lari dari tajuk yang Datuk sampaikan. Wassalam.
