A sack would be just the thing that SAPP needs. That way it is easier to leave BN without quitting. It’s also easier later if SAPP wants to be an independent party and support PAKATAN RAKYAT when or if it comes to power. Or, if it wants to jump! That way, SAPP does not have to deal with moral issues of cross overs with its constituent. “We got the sack! What else to do!”, its MPs can say. It’s a win-win situation for SAPP.

As for Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, whatever he does or say at this point, is pointless. No matter how many pledge their support for him this afternoon – there’s an emergency meeting it seems! But the only emergency I see is UMNO splitting in a thousand ways! And the MPs who get the sack become HEROES!

And what did I say about blackmail? I don’t know who’s blackmailing who. But the Prime Minister says that:

I have not been able to satisfy his personal greed (Bernama).

He meant party president Yong Teck Lee. Yesterday, SAPP wanted to call for a vote of no confidence against the PM.

Yahoo! It’s happening…and happening fast. And history in the making at that. For this is the first time a no confidence vote has been smacked on a prime minister (of Malaysia).

Yet everyone knows it’s impossible to happen. Will it be allowed in the first place, in Parliament?

Sapp will find it impossible to raise the motion on Monday because both the ordinary and substantive motions require a member of parliament to give sufficient notice to the House.

Fourteen days’ notice is required for an ordinary motion, and two days for a substantive motion. (malaysiakini).

Whether these MPs cross over (to Pakatan Rakyat a.k.a Anwar Ibrahim) or stay independent, it is a brave move, and has been very much expected. Sabahans after all are getting smarter by the day.

Any move to weaken BN/UMNO is a MOST welcomed move. Those in UMNO, even those who are anti-Abdullah, do not realise, to attack Abdullah is a move to weaken UMNO, not Abdullah. The man has his sweetheart, his family, his jet planes, his farms. What will UMNO be left with?

Nothing.

Sabah “Progressive” Party (SAPP), you’ve finally lived up to your middle name. Or is it? Or is this just another way to enrich some politicians?

The party announce today that it will call for a no-confidence vote in Parliament on Monday, and on Friday will decide whether it wants to stay in BN or call it quits.

Only that a no confidence vote and wanting the government to give into your demands are two conflicting things.

Why would you still be in a coalition when you no longer have confidence in its leader? And then at the same time, you want this leader and his government to give in to your demands?

It’s like a gamble. Or we can call it blackmail.

Why can’t you decide to quit right away? You have only 2 MPs and 4 state assemblypersons. Is it worth rocking the boat and kicking up a storm?

I know. I know. You can cause a ripple effect for other MPs to break away from BN, or jump into PAKATAN, or simply become independent and throw their support behind PAKATAN, making Anwar Ibrahim’s dream come true and September 16, a reality.

Will Abdullah be able to give Sabahans heaven and appease SAPP? Remember, I said that this may be a way for politicians to enrich themselves.

Or does UMNO think it does not need SAPP in its coalition? Is that an insult to Sabahans? Ahh…so many questions.

Lets wait till Friday for good news, or another disappointing one.

    KUALA LUMPUR: The vote of no confidence against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi cannot be tabled on Monday as this has to be done in accordance with the Standing Orders of the Dewan Rakyat, said Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz.

    The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department who is in charge of Parliament said that under Standing Orders rule 27, a notice for any motion had to be given in writing 14 days in advance.

    I see little possibility of SAPP’s No Confidence Motion against Abdullah as Prime Minister being tabled and debated on Monday unless there is a second political tsunami in the next few days, with waves of support from other Barisan Nasional MPs from Sabah, Sarawak and Peninsula Malaysia making it a credible parliamentary move.

    Whether the SAPP no confidence motion is tabled and debated in Parliament on Monday, its very announcement has set off political shock waves in the country confirming the longstanding, widespread and deepseated discontent of the people of Sabah at their unfair treatment by Umno leaders, whether at Federal or State level.

It’s better to leave a sinking ship than to go down with it. Leave those UMNOputras. They only take care of themselves, you people should know that long time ago..BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys should have voted opposition during the 12th. general election. Then today we will not have a UMNO BN government and no price increase for petrol and diesel. And of course no increase in prices for the things that we eat and use. So, since you are carrying the fight to that sleepy head. ensure that you fight him to the very end. GOOD LUCK I THINK YOU WILL NEED IT BADLY

    jughead:

    Racial tension only happens in the your part of the country so far. Sabah and Sarawak are peace loving states. We are not racist as you are. Infact, if you have to deal with the illegal aliens like we do you’d probably use your “ketuanan Melayu” on them. Ketuanan Melayu apa tu? Di Sabah & Sarawak tidak ada “Ketuanan Melayu”!

    Rememberm if we were to pull out of Malaysia, we are better off. We can still manage! You are a jerk and without your silly pride “ketuanan Melayu” you are nothing… Even a mamak can use the “ketuanan melayu” after all he is indian.

    Yes! There should be an uprising like this long ago. No wonder my dear sloone is in jubilation.

    Malaysia is only having a real real mederka if all this Binatang Nationals are booted out, and all their loots plundered from the nation returned and all of them must be sent to a no-human island for eternal exile.

    The rakyats don’t want to see their stupid and ugly faces from the Binatang Nasional anymore.

    This Binatang Nasionals are enemies of humankind and should be skinned alive.

    With all the oil being pumped out from our land at super speed 24/7 year in and year out relentlessly and now they said our oil fields are empty. These BNs have been treating our oil-fields as if belong to them, blatantly looting all the oil money and putting them into their pockets without blinking an eye.

    When the ‘black gold’ is exhausted, they now eying the rakyat’s wealth for their evil get-rich fast plan.

    Without ‘black gold’, these BNs can’t feed their parasitic supporters, hence we have all these squabbles in all the component parties of the BNS.

    There will be no peace and stability in Bolehland if all these Binatangs Nasional are busily fighting for powers, lands, oil fields and women among themselves.

    There is no future for the rakyat and the rakyats’ children if all this Binatangs Nasional are ruining our country.

    Yes folks! It’s time for an uprising destroying all these BNs who had been destroying the nation. These traitors of the highest highest level must be arrested and sent to jail eternally if justice is to prevail in this world.

    There is no future in Bolehland with all these rotten to the core binatang2 ruining this Bolehland eternally.

    Have no mercy on all these ruthless Binatangs Nasional, or else the whole Bolehland will be annihilated by all this soul-less syaitans.

  42. I think soon when the oil in Sabah and Sarawak has run out, UMNO might kick Sabah and Sawarak out of Malaysia the way they did to Singapore or be treated as 3rd class citizens.
    Singapore, without UMNO, has gone on to do a lot, hips, better of, for their people and has become the envy of many nations of the world. Especially Mamak Mahathir so jealous of their every achievement ! As always he uses different excuses for his own failures to match them.

    They are only interested in your natural resources and if I was a politician in Sabah or Sarawak I will be looking at ways to get out of Malaysia as soon as I can and be independent of yourself. Surely you can, more than, look after yourself and get out of the colonial masters of UMNO. I must say, they have failed you miserably.
    What has UMNO done for you since you joined Malaysia for all these years ? May be corruption and you do not need to be taught that. They are trying to teach you how to get things done when they themselves need to be taught and just after they got themselves rid of the British under hips of false promises.
    Were you not better off when you were with the British ? Stop treating UMNO as your master and decide on your own destiny.

Moreover, having reviewed above 42 responses, I find only one poor brother Azmaan has been fed the wrong concepts and kept away from the truth.

    Come on Brother Azmaan, join us and lets be proud to be called MALAYSIANS. We are all destined to be here in this wonderful country and will continue with our generations to come. Lets work together to make this country free of corrupted politicians who are the sole reason for you to stand apart from us.

    Pak Lah might be old but his brain is still not mature enough.
    That is why he cannot make any decision well.
    He might be the PM of this country but the real thing is that it’s his wife (Jeanne) who is running the country.
    K.J is just only an adviser.
    Most of Umno supreme council knew about it but chose to keep quite because they will being provided with mass fortune.
    Only Najib is the one who is “suffering” because he’s being blackmailed and threatened.
    Pak Lah and his gang have nothing to lose because if the country collapse, they will leave for another country to settle down happily.
    Pak Lah have not only fully forgotten about his first wife but also had broken his words of promise to his mother, the day he was chosen to be the PM.
    Pak Lah did’nt know that the longer he stays on, the greedier his gang will be.
    That’s why he cannot please all of them at one time because our country’s fortune is nearly depleted by now.
    One by one, his party member will betray him and most of them are using the same tactic that he had used on us that led to his downfall .
    “Cakap tak serupa bikin” is the only weapon now being use by his party members against him.
    During the 12th GE, he was so confident that he will win but it really jolted him but not that much.
    Now is the time that his very own members are planning big to sent him “flying high”.
    Watch out for our MCA and the MIC!
    “Word of promises ” nowadays are not worth even a penny under Pak Lah’s rule.

    Waving high telling cajoling whining
    SAPP going for peoples’ interests

    The grounds set to vibrate

In Sarawak & Sabah, we don’t have much problem with racial and religions problem. We are all peaceful loving people under the race called Sarawakian and Sabahan. No such thing as the so-called Ketuanan. The press from semananjung side is nothing much but racial and religion, either malay’s right or PAS’s muslim issue.

    very true Bidayu, the racial tension only existed amongst malay from west Malaysia. In Sabah and Sarawak we don’t have such issue. UMMO is the main culprit to create more racial tension.

    Good said,Bidayu. Certainly, we Sarawakian & Sabahan (regardless any race,we are one) overall is better off than the west. We don’t understand the word Bumiputra, we don’t need the outsider to dictate us and steal our resources. We don’t need the shrewd and cunning mind as TDM or umno’s Melayu Ketuanan. Mosy of west malaysian always reluctant to leave Sarawak or Sabah after working & living here for a couple of years or more. Their comments were that the people here are very simple, sincere, helpful and friendly which you couldn’t find in the west malaysia.

Both the defense lawyers and the prosecution team were also all shocked.

    The Sun newspaper carried the story, complete with Razak Baginda’s outburst. However, the Home Ministry asked The Sun to withdraw their first run which carried the ‘Matilah Kau Pak Lah!’ outburst by Razak Baginda. The Sun had to withdraw thousands of copies of their print run early this morning.

    Also, Sabah CM said federal government never interfered state government matters. Then who should be sacked by not performing well to solve the Sabah issues since BN took over. He also stated that BN giving Sabah billions of ringgit under Ninth plan. Hello? already Ninth plan why Sabah still far behind in term of development and infrastructures compared to other states?

    KOTA KINABALU, June 20 — The Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) supreme council today endorsed the decision to support a vote of no confidence against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in the Dewan Rakyat on Monday.

    “After considering all views, the supreme council decided to endorse the motion,” party president Datuk Yong Teck Lee told reporters after chairing the supreme council emergency meeting.

    Yong, however, said there was no decision on the party pulling out of the Barisan Nasional (BN).

    Thirty-three of the 35 supreme council members, with the exception of deputy presidents — Sepanggar MP Datuk Eric Enchin Majimbun and Likas assemblyman Datuk Liew Teck Chan — who are overseas on official duty, did not attend the meeting held at the party headquarters in Luyang, near here.

    The meeting was held to discuss the party’s political direction following the declaration by Yong on Wednesday that the party had lost confidence in Abdullah’s leadership.

    Yesterday, the BN convened an emergency supreme council meeting in Kuala Lumpur and decided that no action would be taken against SAPP for the moment as it was not clear whether its call for a no-confidence vote in the Dewan Rakyat on Monday against the prime minister was a personal view or that of the party. — Bernama

    KUCHING: Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) and Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) have mutually agreed to merge to consolidate the Dayaks’ political strength.
    The breakthrough came following several rounds of talks between top officials of the two Dayak-based Barisan Nasional component parties.
    With the agreement, the two parties have shortlisted three names for the merged new party: Bersatu Rakyat Sarawak (Beras), Demokratik Rakyat Sarawak (Deras) and Bersatu Progresif Rakyat Sarawak (BPRS).
    The merged new party, which has 16 state assemblymen and 10 MPs, will beat Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) to become the second biggest component in the state coalition. SUPP has 11 assemblymen and six MPs.
    Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) led by Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud is the state Barisan backbone.
    SPDP’s secretary-general Sylvester Entrie said his party and PRS had agreed to merge as it would be in their best interests.
    He said the two parties would get feedback from the grassroots on which of the three proposed names should be picked for the merged entity.

    Yong Accuses Abdullah Of Political Bribery
    Malaysia-Today
    Saturday, 21 June 2008

    Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) President Yong Teck Lee Friday (20 June) said he was a senatorship and an envoy’s post by the Prime Minister’s Department on Tuesday (17 June), a day before he declared that the party had lost confidence in the leadership of Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

    The former chief minister said he regarded the offer as “political bribery” to stop him from voicing out issues related to Sabah, Bernama reported.

    “The offer was delivered to me through the chief minister. He (the chief minister) said that if I agree, the prime minister would make the announcement.

    “I said I’m going to reject it even if the announcement is made… so it won’t be nice,” he told reporters in Kota Kinabalu.

    Yong was asked to comment on a statement by Abdullah yesterday that he had offered the two posts to the SAPP president.

    “There is nothing personal but I’m surprise when he (the prime minister) mentioned about personal greed… I’ve never asked for personal things from the prime minister.

    “The senatorship is suggested by the chief minister. I said, fine but I rather not accept it because people would see it as an attempt to shut me up. So it’s not true that I had personal greed.

    “I also said that if it is true, let other SAPP leaders who are qualified (to be offered the posts),” he said.

    He also questioned what he said was the “perfect timing” for a corruption case to surface. Its is an attempt to cultivate a climate of fear,” he told reporters after chairing the SAPP supreme council meeting.

    The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) said today it was investigating Yong over an alleged bribery case involving RM5 million when he was the chief minister in 1996.

    This was following a revelation in the Kuala Lumpur High Court yesterday that Yong had ordered the payment of over RM5 million profit from the sale of shares belonging to a state-owned company to his selected agents in 1996.

    Yong said: “In this particular investigation, the ACA had taken my statements four or five years ago. I don’t know how many hours I was at the ACA office, don’t tell me it has suddenly resurfaced Saturday (21 June).

    “The timing is perfect,” he said. (MySinchew)

  124. ram says:

    BY THE WAY… On the eve before parliament sitting and after the Yong Teik Lee’s manoeuvre for Sabah politics, Upko led by federal minister Bernard Dompok upped the ante a little higher. This is what his deputy, Wilfred Bumburing, offered as double-speak:

    “We cannot deny that we share Sabah Progressive Party’s views on issues pertaining to the migrant problem,” he said.

    “We are firm about this and we are unhappy about a so-called Cabinet Committee to tackle Sabah’s illegal immigrant woes.”

    Bumburing said a similar committee set up in 2002 only had come up with one meeting.

    “It’s almost forgotten and now they are talking of the same thing,” he said, adding that a Royal Commission of Inquiry was a better option.

    Upko has better chips, for the gambling table, than Yong’s SAPP. It has four MPs: Dompok who is also Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Bumburing who is also Tuaran MP, Dr Marcus Majigoh (Putatan MP) and Siringan Gubat (Ranau MP).

    SAPP has only two MPs.

    Hey guys!!

    What happened to his motion?

    Lost it or already nabbed?

    Just as i thought…………………..

  126. Onekampung says:

    Everyone notices that a day after SAPP’s Yong Teck Lee vowed to move a vote of no confidence on PM Abdullah, the ACA said it would investigate on a corruption charge on Yong. What a mean and dirty tactic it is!

    I view this from 2 angles. Firstly, the ACA may give the whole world of reasons and say this is only a coincidence, who will believe it? Second, if the charges are true, it means the ACA has been sleeping in the past, or we can only say the reason it did not investigate on Yong Teck Lee was because until recently, Yong was still supportive of BN. The moment he goes against the BN, all kinds of charges will be levelled on him.

    The ACA is really stupid enough to do this bad timing to give the public a bad image of itself, which is already down the drain, if it still has any ctredibility.

    Does it mean that even if you are corrupt, but if you support BN, we will not investigate on you? So all those BN guys who are corrupt (you know it too well yourself), you better continue to kiss BN’s ass.

    Abdullah should give the ACA director a better piece of advice, since the ACA only reports to him.

    There should be a better way for ACA to handle this case, because by doing so, it has lost all its credibility.

  127. bow says:

    At least there is one brave Sabahan political party that has backbone in east Malaysia, which is quite a surprise. It is better for east Malaysians to seize this slimy open” window of opportunity’ before it closes for the sake of Sabah future than remain quiet.

  128. I don’t know how many hours I was at the ACA office, don’t tell me it has suddenly resurfaced Saturday (21 June).
