Politics and Policy: Tide of change faces Sarawak polls test

IN the new Malaysian landscape that emerged from the 14th general election (GE14), Sarawak is one of the last vestiges of the Barisan Nasional era that ended last May.

The battle lines are now drawn for Sarawak’s 12th state election (SSE12), which must be held before Sept 7, 2021.

The coalition ruling the state was formerly part of the Barisan Nasional (BN) but soon after BN lost federal power, it rebranded itself as Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS). With the shock defeat of BN at the national level, the four-party coalition finds itself governing a federal opposition state. The state opposition, on its part, is getting used to having the support of the federal government for the first time.

APAKAH PERANAN NORZA ZAKARIA DALAM INDUSTRI MINYAK & GAS SARAWAK DAN PETROS?

Gambaran bagi sektor minyak dan gas di Sarawak tidak lama lagi akan menjadi suram dan menyerupai industri balak di Sarawak sekarang. Sumber kayu balak Sarawak dikendalikan oleh Perbadanan Kemajuan Industri Kayu Sarawak (SITDC) di mana strateginya adalah menebang seberapa banyak hutan yang boleh untuk menghasilkan jumlah kayu paling banyak dalam masa yang paling singkat. Walau bagaimanapun, tanpa sebarang perancangan penanaman semula, tidak hairanlah eksport kayu kini jatuh merudum. Nilai eksport balak telah merosot dengan ketara sebanyak 23.5% daripada RM1.7 bilion pada suku pertama 2017 kepada RM1.3 bilion pada suku pertama 2018. Penurunan ini dijangka berterusan pada kadar ini sehinggalah tiada apa lagi yang tinggal untuk ditebang.

Pandangan sempit Sarawak yang hanya menebang pokok dan menjual kayu balak ke pasaran luar negara mencerminkan amalan kurang baik yang sama yang bakal diamalkan kerajaan negeri dalam menguruskan rizab minyak mentahnya. Rizab minyak dan gas Sarawak yang masih banyak merupakan hasil daripada langkah-langkah berhemat yang telah dilaksanakan untuk mengekalkan pengeluaran yang stabil sehingga kini. Sehingga akhir 2015, Sarawak memiliki 28.7% rizab minyak negara yang diketahui dan menyumbang 29.4% kepada pengeluaran negara. Untuk gas pula, Sarawak memiliki 52.7% rizab negara yang diketahui dan kira-kira 70% pengeluaran negara.

Sarawak’s own leaders eroded our oil and gas rights — Dapsy
