New Senators Soon!
All is not lost to SUPP in the recently concluded 10th Sarawak state election. While SUPP is officially (heh!) a Dayak party by now, SUPP can expect to enjoy at least a bit of salvation by UMNO – in the form of senatorship. So far SUPP looks like a conveyor belt that ship endless supply of Senators to Dewan Negara!

Leading the Senatorship candidate is definately Georgie Boy and what better gift for his honeymoon than having a tag Senator for great hotel discount with new hot sexy madam!

Well SUPP shouldn’t feel any shame with this senatorship galore because they got not one but at least six ex-YBs as supply to Dewan Negara! Not bad since UMNO itself never send this as much batch of Senators in one go.

How about Peter Nyarok of SPDP party which undeniably and cannot be ‘nyorok’/ hide anymore that his seat was lost to PKR YB Ali Biju in DUN Krian? A senatorship for him would be just as great as well to join the motley crue SUPP Senators gang! And also to Gabby Adit…yeah join the gang will ya!

The Dyaks Blog Final Donkeys:

Anyway congratulations/ Tahniah! in advance to both Senator George Chan, Senator Peter Nyarok, Senator Gabby Adit!

May you folks enjoy joining Senator Sim Kheng Hui in Dewan Negara!

Believe! Sim is Now Senator!
YB Wong Ho Leng, Wednesday 9 December 2007

Believe! A person who was rejected badly by the people could be appointed a Senator? In the SUPP books, a person who was rejected can be “recycled” for Senatorship or other posts. Yet, the SUPP leadership made no mention of this until the oath taking ceremony. This news is from the Utusan Borneo 19/12/2007:

Sim Kheng Hui angkat sumpah sebagai Senator
Utusan Borneo 19/12/2007

KUCHING: Setiausaha Agung Parti Rakyat Bersatu Sarawak (SUPP) Datuk Sim Kheng Hui mengangkat sumpah sebagai Senator di Parlimen, Kuala Lumpur semalam.

Sim, 64, menggantikan Ahli Jawatankuasa Kerja Pusat SUPP Hii Tiong Kuoh sebagai wakil parti berkenaan di Dewan Negara.

Beliau mengangkat sumpah kira-kira jam 10 pagi.

Presiden SUPP Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan berkata, cadangan pelantikan Sim diluluskan pada satu mesyuarat peringkat tertinggi parti sebelum ini.

“Dalam mesyuarat kabinet negeri minggu lepas, pelantikan Sim sebagai Senator juga diluluskan dan diterima oleh Ketua Menteri Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud,” kata Dr Chan ketika dihubungi semalam.

Pelantikan itu dilihat sebagai pencapaian terbaharu dalam karier politik Sim.

Setiausaha Agung SUPP sejak 1996 dan Pengerusi SUPP Pending sejak 1994 itu, melibatkan diri dalam bidang politik bermula dengan jawatan Setiausaha Politik Ketua Menteri sebelum dilantik menjadi Menteri Muda Pembangunan Perindustrian (1992 hingga 1999), Menteri Muda Pembangunan Sosial dan Urbanisasi (2000-2004) dan Menteri Muda Kebudayaan dan Urbanisasi (2005-2006).

Beliau merupakan Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri Pending sejak 1991 sebelum kalah dalam Pilihan Raya Negeri 2006 kepada calon Parti Tindakan Demokratik (DAP) Violet Yong.

Dr Chan berkata lagi, Senator memainkan peranan penting terutama dalam proses penggubalan undang-undang negara.

“Lazimnya di Parlimen, Senator akan mengemukakan cadangan bagi menambah baik rang undang-undang yang diluluskan di peringkat Dewan Rakyat,” ujarnya.

Katanya, Sim akan berkhidmat satu penggal (tiga tahun) dan boleh disambung semula.
