The impoundment of Bengoh Dam was delayed to avoid negative impact from the mainly Bidayuh communitiy in Bengoh. Many commentators from all sides expect some electoral backlash. But when the polling results came in there was a mere 300 votes dropped from the BN’s majority. BN won in the polling center at Kg Bengoh, right in the center of the affected community. What happened??? The film proposed to investigate. The answer is so promising that the film proposal is shortlisted among the top 5 film proposals for the Freedom Film Fest film proposal competition. Director Rapelson from Kuching will be interviewed by the film fest organiser KOMAS this saturday over Skype. If the film proposal were to win the award( 3 will win Rm6k award at each year’s competition) it would be the 1st Sarawakian’s film that make it to the FFF!

Watch out! Let the truth come out of the probe into the election! Let it be a good reference for the coming General Elections, which may be around the corner.

The issue of the 100 Ibans who descended upon SUPP office in Sibu to collect payment from election promise has turned nasty in the last 24 hours: Wong Soon Koh, the candidate in the middle of the controversy, issued a threat to sue reporters of the news that the Ibans came for vote-buying payment amounting to Rm400.00 each. He gave a 48 hour deadline for the reporters to retract the report. Not only that there was a rumour that SUPP would protest at DAP HQ in Sibu over the vote-buying issue, after a SUPP leader claimed that the Ibans came to claim payment from work engaged by SUPP. The protest, said to be around 3.00pm today, never took place, according to SEW observers in Sibu, led by Wong Meng Chuo. SEW reporter, who broke the story, stand by her story when interviewed by Malaysiakini. It is most regrettable that SUPP chose to  threaten the messenger rather than deal with the message, no matter how discomforting it may be. So the story which may take away one of SUPP’s few remaining state assemblyperosns, will be kept on the boil for a while.

The losing candidate Alice Lau of DAP has 3 weeks after the gazetting of the election results to file election petition to challenge the election results. If the suit by SUPP come to pass the reporter need all the public’s support-so that truths will continue to serve the public. Watch out!
