A Political weather report
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 27 (Bernama) -- Strong northeasterly winds of 40-50km per hour and rough seas with waves of up to 3.5 metres over the coastal waters off Kelantan and Terengganu are expected to occur from today until Friday.
The Meteorological Department said in a statement that the condition was dangerous to small crafts, sea recreational activities and sea sports. -- BERNAMA
I found this brief piece on the weather after reading another article on Bernama quoting Awang Adek Hussin as saying that Kelantan would miss out on the RM112 billion foreign investments if the state continues to be ruled by PAS. Read here.Awang Adek has been promised the Menteri Besar post if Barisan Nasional re-captures Kelantan in next month's general election. But like the strong winds warning in the report above, the political weather report for the East Coast should serve as a warning to Awang Adek that it is dangerous to assume that Terengganu will continue to have a "credible" state government after the GE.Excerpt:
Kelantan may not be able to attract part of the RM112,000 billion to be pumped in by foreign investors for projects under the East Coast Economic Corridor (ECER) if the state continues to be led by PAS, Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin said.
Terengganu and Pahang would get the investments instead because they had credible state governments, he said.
"Foreign investors study the capability of the state government first before making their investments," he said when launching the supplementary BN manifesto for the Pasir Puteh parliamentary constituency in Cherang Ruku yesterday.
Pahang is out of the Opposition's reach, but not Terengganu.
