BN gives SAPP 30 days to explain lack of faith

KUALA LUMPUR, June 27 — The Barisan Nasional supreme council last night gave the Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) 30 days to explain its proposed no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who is also BN chairman.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak, who heads the BN management committee, said BN panel leaders will then decide the next course of action against SAPP, a component party in the 14-member coalition ruling Malaysia.

SAPP president Datuk Yong Teck Lee last week announced the party had lost faith in Abdullah’s leadership and its two MPs would move or support a no-confidence motion when parliament reconvened last Monday.

But both Tawau MP Datuk Dr Chua Soon Bui and Sepanggar MP Datuk Eric Enchin Majimbun did not turn up in parliament due to claims of threats and intimidation.

However, Yong, a former Sabah chief minister, said the party will not pull out of BN where it also has four Sabah assemblymen.
