Taib Quitting? No!
It is reported that Taib will announce soon that he’ll step down after the Sarawak state election. BN needs him to deliver the state but they hope the announcement will take the wind out of the opposition’s sails in the state polls.
This guy helms the state for 30 years now. To me the report of his quitting is a gimmick to hopefully take the wind out of the opposition’a sail. Reason is simple. Taib has always said that he has not found a suitable successor yet. He has groomed so many successors. None has been suitable to him. He implied that much anyway. Don’t tell me that overnight he has found someone suitable?
If he means business he should step down now. Why after poll? He is trying to say that he is indispensable.
Would Taib announce his successor now before going to the poll? I bet he won’t.
I have known many Sarawak leaders clinging on to power until they are taken off by voters.
BN and Taib know that many Chinese oppose Taib and his policies. That is something that BN and Taib must be ashamed of. SUPP treats Taib as God incarnate. they still need Taib. So he has to lead BN into election. They have to create story that he will quit, to appease the bulk of the Chinese who oppose him.
Taib’s quitting after election is a gimmick that we had expected.
But whether he quits or not after state poll makes no difference. We can certainly expect the same lousy BN policies to continue. We can also confidently say that the corrupt BN government won’t improve, only getting worse. New crocodiles will come to shore and they will bite new chunks away.
Under BN, Sarawak has No Future. Korup didahulukan. Rakyat detepikan.
