Hello, Want To Be Minister???

Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) Deputy President and Member of Parliament for Sepanggar Datuk Eric Majimbun said he had received calls from from people claiming to be from the Prime Minister's office offering him ministerial position in the Federal Government.

He said the callers also asked him whether he was happy with the ministerial portfolio offered to him.

"You know it's a crank call as Putrajaya do not work that way. I don't take it seriously," Majimbun said. He believed that other MPs had also been receiving similar calls with most of them just listening to what the callers had to say.

In another development, SAPP president Datuk Yong Teck Lee has broken his silence on SAPP having been given no Federal posts despite winning two MP seats in the March 8, general elections.

"I have not answered this but now you ask about SAPP's feeling on the issues, I would say that since it is the prerogative of the Prime Minister, I cannot comment on it," Yong told reporters in Labuan yesterday (Sunday - April 13).

SAPP won in all the seats its contested - two MPs and four State seats - which caused higher expectations among the party's members, and that it was obvious that there was suppressed frustration when the party's performance was not acknowledge with Federal positions.

One Yong Teck Lee has actually said during SAPP KK and Penampang Convention which was held on last Saturday that the Party's space in BN is only '2 feet by 4 feet' so it's 'looking for a bigger space and opportunity'!

Wonder what he want to say.
