An instant respond from the PM over SAPP President’s no confident vote for him :

PUTRAJAYA, June 18 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi says Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) President Datuk Yong Teck Lee's latest action has been due to the fact that

"I have not been able to satisfy his personal greed."

Abdullah did not elaborate. However, his aides told Bernama that the prime minister would elaborate at a later date.

Yong declared in Kota Kinabalu on Wednesday that his party had lost confidence in Abdullah.

Of late, the former Sabah chief minister has been critical of Abdullah's political decisions on Sabah as well as the move to increase fuel prices.-- BERNAMA

SAPP to move no-faith vote – Borneo Post Online

“In my last meeting with him (Abdullah) on May 13 in Kuala Lumpur, it was very cordial. That was when I made it clear so that I would not be misunderstood. I said it three times that although there would be no crossovers as speculated in some newspaper reports of MPs, on the following day (May 14), the PM must not rule out the possibility of this happening some time in the future because the issues are real and that the MPs are serious.

“His response was basically the usual … that we had been interviewed before, we have this press conference before, we will look into the issue, we are committed to the issue, we want to stop the issue but because I had the impression that the actual act of urgency was still not there, I therefore told him (Abdullah) not to rule out possibilities that something might happen in the future,” Yong said.

Deep Tots:

  • It is a serious allegation and especially when the PM has made this statement public..
    Therefore PakLah.. how much? And Datuk YTL... is it true?
    Are the goodies not feverish enough that you need more?
  • Is the PM implying that SAPP’s vote of no confidence is a PERSONAL request over national issue or party issue?
  • The PM with his normal approach … HIT AND LATER.. LATER.. AND HOPED IT WILL ALL BE FORGOTTEN…

... SAPP Shocker (The Star)
