Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), one of the Sabah-based Barisan Nasional component party members, today suspended one of its Vice President Datuk Liew Yun Fah, who was also wx-Youth and Sports Minister, for allegedly acting against the party in the March 8, general elections.
LDP President Datuk V K Liew, in announcing this after chairing the party's supreme council meeting, also announced that LDP Merotai Division which is also headed by Datuk Liew Yun Fah was also suspended.
V K Liew said Datuk Liew Yun Fah and the others had been issued with show cause letters which they must respond within 10 days, failing which they would be expelled from the party.
This latest move by LDP only confirmed speculation that Datuk Liew Yun Fah did `sponsored' an Independent to contest against LDP's Peter Pang Yuk Ming after he was not re-nominated by LDP to defend the Merotai seat. Datuk Liew Yun Fah won the seat in 2004.
