Deputy Speaker Ronald Kiandee/Wan Junaidi?

Sabah's Beluran Member of Parliament, Datuk Ronald Kiandee, who won his third term in office in the March 8, general elections had confirmed that he had been told informally of his nomination as a candidate for one of Parliament's Deputy Speaker.

"I will wait for the official announcement," he said.

The other Deputy Speaker post is likely to go to five term MP of Santubung in Sarawak Datuk Wan Junaidi Tunku Jaafar. He said his name was proposed by Sarawak Barisan Nasional leaders to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi during his visit to Kuching last week.

Another Sabahan is said to have been nominated as a candidate for the Speaker post. He is former Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Haji Mulia.

My Say:

If Kiandee and Wan Junaidi are made Deputy Speaker and Pandikar given the Speaker post, Parliament for the first time will be controlled/headed by leaders from Sabah and Sarawak (East Malaysia).

what's the point of sabahans getting these posts? when sabah umno's enam jahanam (salleh keruak, pandikar, rahim ismail, bung mokhtar and etc) went to see pak lah to complain, some of them got rewarded or should i say silenced with the promise of position. meaning the enam jahanam went to see the pm for their own interest and not of the people. if our politicians are sincere, they should stab umno. and not be so happy with the crumbs that pak lah offer. for example, it seems yong teck lee will be pacified with a senator post. maybe if we dumped umno, we would get a better deal. maybe more oil royalty? lawan tetap lawan!

...indeed...we should demand that our state's autonomy be restored.....if this wish is denied then Sabah's young turks will look further...total independence perhaps! Well, nothing is impossible if it's according to God's will!

ps: ..who is pandikar amin...the one who led that illegal anti-pbs street demo back in the mid-80s? Oh that colonialist tool lah pula!

....the local political culture must go! Physical, spiritual and political oppression breed revolutionary thoughts! The malayans have been manipulating the indigenous peoples of Malaysia's Borneo since 1963.....just to fill up their quorum as a nation and we being their prized ballot papers' tickers! We need to move revolutionary onward....we need to safeguard what was given us by the Creator!

...but then now is the time to sow the seeds....harvesting time maybe 15 or 20 years from now. History proves that "great happenings " start from scratch...no pain no gain!
