KUCHING: Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) yesterday confirmed that three incumbent MPs will be re-nominated as the party's candidates in the coming general election.

They are Datuk Jacob Dungau Sagan (Baram), Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing (Bintulu) and Jelaing Mersat (Saratok).

The fate of Mas Gading MP Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe is still in the dark as the Supreme Council could not "conclude on his status at the moment — whether he
will re-nominated or not" for the coming general election.

SPDP president Tan Sri William Mawan made the announcement at a press conference yesterday after the Supreme Council meeting at party headquarters in Jalan Baharuddin here.

Mawan said that the Supreme Council could not come up with any conclusion about Dr Tiki's fate.

"We have yet to hear from the MP (Dr Tiki) himself and about his performance as he was not present at the meeting," he said.

"SPDP is doing its part and all the Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties are consolidating themselves and we all are ready to face the coming parliamentary election," he added

Mawan, who is Minister of Social Development and Urbanisation said that he had nominated himself as the party chairperson for the coming general election to ensure smooth operation.

Meanwhile, Sagan who is a four-term Baram
MP and Deputy Minister of International Trade
and Industry said that he was ready and would work hard to ensure party victory and also for the BN government.

In 2008, the SPDP senior vice-president won the Baram seat by garnering 7,996 votes against SNAP's Kebing Wan who only garnered 3,952 votes.

Mersat, a two-term Saratok MP said that he was glad to be re-nominated by the party and as chairman of his election machinery, he was ready to face any challenge from whoever stand against him.

Although he acknowledged the defeat of the Krian assemblyman Datuk Peter Nyarok who is also the party deputy president, he is unperturbed by the opposition in his constituency.

"I am more concerned about providing development to my constituency rather than the opposition or the candidate," he said.

Jelaing said that he was not sure whether the general election would be held this year and did not like to speculate even though he's nearer to the leaders at the federal level.

In 2008, he won by getting 12,470 votes against
PKR's Mohd Yahya Abdullah who only obtained 3,764 votes.

Tiong, who is chairman of the BN Backbencher and Bintulu MP, who declined to comment much about his preparation for the coming election.

In 2008, he won by getting 23,628 votes against DAP's Lim Su Kien who only obtained 8,662 votes.

A source within the
party said that with the absence of Dr Tiki, who is one of the party's vice-presidents, at yesterday's Supreme Council meeting, Mas Gading could possibly see a new candidate replacing him.

Dr Tiki is one of the 'SPDP Five' who is referred to the disciplinary committee headed by Professor Dr Shafiq Abdullah, which in two weeks time will decide on their fate.

SPDP Supreme Council meeting is held once every three months.

Yesterday's meeting was attended by 21 out of 33 members.

SPDP has six state seats and four parliamentary seats.

SGH Heart Centre receives aid to shorten INR tests | BorneoPost <b>...</b>

Posted: 12 Sep 2011 05:48 PM PDT

Posted on September 13, 2011, Tuesday

KOTA SAMARAHAN: Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) Heart Centre, with the help of Sarawak Heart Foundation (SHF), will soon launch a pilot project to shorten the waiting time for INR (International Normalise Ratio) test.

SGH Heart Centre cardiologist Dr Alan Fong said an INR test (a test to check the viscosity of blood) usually takes up to four hours but with the pilot project he is confident that the time will be shortened to only about 30 minutes.

"Presently it would involve lots of equations. First is the blood test and then you have to wait for the result, see a doctor, wait for the prescription, go to the pharmacy and wait for the medication.

"But with the new initiative we will try to put everything together so that patients don't have to walk anywhere. Just go to the clinic and everything will be done there, and with that we hope the waiting time can be reduced greatly," he told reporters at the centre yesterday.

PANTU: PRS president Tan Sri Dr James Masing yesterday used the analogy of hierarchy in the Red Indian community to describe an effective political party.

Tan Sri Dr James Masing

Similar to that hierarchy, he said, all community representatives and members have their own respective functions and responsibilities to develop the party.

Everyone must respect and abide to the hierarchy, regardless of their personal academic qualifications and age, among others, to ensure the party's continued survival.

"For example, if there's no office boy in the office who will deliver the letters? Of course the department will not run smoothly without someone to do the job.

"The same with a political party. If everyone scrambles to be the leader, who will be the followers? That's why we need only one leader in a political party," he said at an event held at Rumah Lindang Jemat in Lachau here.

At the event, he announced a minor rural project (MRP) allocation of RM1,000 to six women's bureau in Lachau and RM2,000 to the village security and development committee (JKKK) of Rumah Lindang.

Masing, who is also Land Development Minister, advised the people not to distance themselves from the Barisan Nasional (BN) government because they still needed development which only the BN could provide.

Among those present were Assistant Minister of Land Development Datuk Francis Harden Hollis, Assistant Minister of Agriculture Mong Dagang, Sri Aman MP Masir Kujat, Lubok Antu  MP William Nyalau Badak, Batang Ai assemblyman Malcom Mussen Lamoh and Balai Ringin assemblyman Snowdan Lawan.

Kaji produk pelancongan | my <b>Sarawak</b> – News coverage around <b>...</b>

UNIMAS diminta melakukan usaha bagi memastikan produk sedia ada terus kekal dalam keadaan baik

PADAWAN: Timbalan Menteri Pelancongan Datuk James Dawos Mamit mengajak Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) mengkaji kemampuan sesuatu produk pelancongan di negeri ini menampung kapasiti pelancong.

Menurutnya, usaha tersebut adalah untuk memastikan agar produk-produk pelancongan yang ada di negeri akan terus kekal dalam keadaan baik terutama dari segi prasarananya.

"Sebagai contoh ialah Kolam Air Panas Kampung Annah Rais, kita dapati terlalu ramai pengunjung yang datang ke situ dalam satu-satu masa."

"Ini menimbulkan kerisauan, kerana kita takut kalau tempat ini (kolam air panas) tidak dapat menampung jumlah pengunjung yang datang, lagipun kita juga khuatir jika terlalu ramai yang datang akan menyebabkan tempat ini rosak.

"Disebabkan itu, saya mengharapkan UNIMAS dapat menjalankan kajian mengenai kemampuan destinasi pelancongan seperti ini menampung jumlah pengunjung yang datang," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika berucap merasmikan Gawai Pelancongan Peringkat Negeri di Kampung Annah Rais, di sini malam kelmarin.

Menurut beliau, industri pelancongan pada tahun lepas telah menjana pendapatan sekitar RM80 bilion kepada ekonomi negara.

"Pada tahun lepas, daripada pelancong antarabangsa kita telah berjaya mengumpul sebanyak RM56.5 bilion, manakala daripada pelancong domestik pula kita telah memperolehi sebanyak RM32 bilion," katanya.

Justeru, beliau yang juga merupakan Ahli Parlimen Mambong menasihatkan agar lebih ramai lagi masyarakat Bidayuh menyertai perniagaan dalam industri pelancongan.

"Saya sendiri sudah mengenal pasti beberapa lokasi pelancongan yang berpotensi dibangunkan di kawasan ini (Parlimen Mambong), tetapi saya masih menunggu reaksi penduduk tempatan.

"Saya mahu lebih ramai masyarakat Bidayuh menceburi bidang ini kerana ia boleh memberi pendapatan yang tinggi," katanya sambil memberitahu beliau akan berusaha untuk mempromosikan dan membangunkan produk-produk pelancongan yang ada di negeri ini.

Majlis malam tersebut merupakan anjuran Lembaga Penggalakan Pelancongan Malaysia, Sarawak dan Kementerian Pelancongan dan Warisan.

Sambutan yang merupakan kali kedua diadakan itu adalah untuk memperkenalkan adat serta budaya tradisional khususnya masyarakat Bidayuh di bahagian Padawan.

Hadir sama ialah Menteri Muda Alam Sekitar Datuk Peter Nansian Ngusie, Setiausaha Tetap Kementerian Pelancongan dan Warisan Datuk Ik Pahon Joyik; Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Opar, Ranum Mina; ADUN Kedup, Martin Ben; Naib Canselor UNIMAS Peter Songan, Ketua Kampung Annah Rais, Dominic Yon Jaok dan pengerusi penganjur, Edward Kurik.

Academic and religious education imperative for a progressive <b>...</b>

FOR YOU: Abu Seman (left) presents Raya gifts to one of the children while Dayang Normaliza (wearing headscarf) and others look on.

MATU: It is imperative for all Muslims to acquire good education and religious knowledge in order to become a progressive, dynamic and successful community, said Jemoreng assemblyman Abu Seman Jahwie.

Additionally, Abu Seman said that it was also very important for the successful and better-off Muslims to reach out and share their wealth with the less fortunate members of their community, exercising their social responsibility and creating a peaceful and harmonious multi-racial society.

Abu Seman said this in his speech as guest-of-honour at a Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration organised by the Village Security and Development Committee (JKKK) of Kampung Bawang here last Saturday (Sept 10).

Abu Seman, who is also a political secretary to the Chief Minister and hails from Kampung Bawang, called on the people from Matu district who are staying in urban areas, to come back and visit their parents and family members in their village regularly in order to
cement greater bond among their families, in line with the 'menilik jawai' (literally visiting one's relatives and family members) culture practised by members of the community.

Among the highlights of the celebrations were presentation of 'duit Raya' and other gifts by Abu Seman and his wife Dayang Normaliza Awang Tambi and their two daughters to children from Kampung Bawang and nearby villages.

The celebration was also filled with entertainment activities comprising mainly of Hari Raya songs, a children's singing competition, 'bergendang', 'bermukun' and a poco-poco dance aimed at promoting a greater unity and understanding among the local people.

Abu Seman also took the opportunity to call on the people in Jemoreng constituency and Matu district to stand united behind the caring Barisan Nasional (BN) government in order to enjoy greater development and prosperity.
