SAPP will table a NO-CONFIDENCE motion for votes against Pak Lah in the coming preceding of Parliament on Monday, June 23rd. The motion can be tabled by any members of the Parliament, but most probably the SAPP shall be the one initiating it through either YB Datuk Chua Soon Bui or YB Datuk Eric Majimbun.
As to WHY SAPP chooses to NOW delivers this potentially fatal-blow to not just Pak Lah, BUT BN as well. Here is their rational behinds it:
“We must make a stand before the window of opportunity closes. This window of opportunity closes by August after which
Sabah would be forgotten again. The nation¡¦s attention would switch to MCA and UMNO elections, people will be pre-occupied with the fasting month, Hari Raya, school exams and year end events. Political fatigue in the national mainstream over Sabah issues would set in” – SAPP press statement.
What’s the REASON for SAPP to take this drastic action and by what inputs of sense can the Rakyat judge this action to as reasonable and timely? Here it goes:
“The momentum for us to recover our autonomy, get 20% oil royalties and return of
Labuan would be lost. Unfair federal laws, excessive taxes and structural imbalances in the economy will remain entrenched. Sabah will remain the poorest state subservient to the central leadership. Labuan bridge, poverty eradication and rural development will remain elusive. Racial politics and wasteful monopolies will continue as usual. The illegal immigrant problems will reach boiling point. Grown up street kids, illicit drugs and crimes will continue to strike fear among the people. Police and law enforcement will remain understaffed and under-resourced. In other words, Sabah will lose out badly again. We will not get this window of opportunity for another 50 years, if ever again. In fact, we have now become suspicious of their delaying tactics.” – SAPP press statement.
Is SAPP pulling OUT of BN since now they have becoming outrageously VOCAL and AGAINST the spirit of the BN?
“We will have a press conference on Friday June 20 to announce this matter of SAPP membership in BN after our Supreme Council meeting. This is the most popular question of the week. Actually, the BN has already left
Sabah. The spirit of BN is no longer there. It is not that Sabah does not want BN; it is BN that does not want Sabah. The BN does not recognize the contribution of Sabah to the national mainstream. Ask any Sabah UMNO leader privately, they will pour out their frustrations. Remember the speeches of MPs Datuk Anifah Aman on terrace houses, Datuk Ghapur Salleh, Datuk Wilfred bumburing and Datuk Eric and Datuk Dr. Chua Soon Bui? Many BN component leaders also share our feelings.” – SAPP press statement.
