SARAWAK: DUN SEMOP-Pemikir Ganti Asfia?
by Sebanaku Sarawak KUCHING: A University Darul Iman lecturer cum blogger Mohammad Hailmi Sajili has been enlisted as one of the two potential candidates to replace the Semop assemblyman Dato Sri Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar should the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) top leadership finally decides to drop the incumbent in the coming state election. His name appears in one of the two lists of candidates that came out from the Chief Minister’s Office recently. Mohammad Hailmi Sajili, however, will not surprise at all with this inclusion as he was approached early this year on the possibility of him to stand in the constituency. Apparently the bad publicity which Dato Sri Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar had received for the alienation of the state land to a Chinese company in his area has helped to make the final push in putting Mohammad Hailmi Sajili's name into the list. And to the certain extent, the exposure given by this blog on his wrong doings has caught the attention of the PBB top leadership – causing Dato Sri Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar to come up with a contingency plan to exit from the scene gracefully. Dato Sri Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar knows very well that his days as the kingpin are virtually over. He also knows that many elected representatives are now grinding their axes waiting for the moment to leap at him and kill him as well as his 'right hand man' YB Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah. In the past few years, these two guys had causing a lot of problems to many elected representatives – regardless of which party they are from – by giving 'wrong' information to Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud. Dato Sri Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar – and to the certain extent his 'right hand man' YB Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah – has to find ‘creative’ ways to make himself as indispensable to the party or this term would be his last. However, the lists are actually recommendations made for the attention of Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud. It is normal for Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud to receive lists of recommended candidates from trusted sources before an election. He would look through the recommended lists and would come up with his own list, which is considered as the final one. However, in respect of Dato Sri Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar, if he cares to ask around, he should know that his days are numbered. It seems that he is going to be among the 20 percent of those who are to be dropped in the coming state election - unless he can find ways to make himself indispensable to PBB....by sebanaku sarawak http://sebanaku-sarawak.blogspot.com/
