Responding to the Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's announcement after the BN Supreme Council meeting last night in Kuala Lumpur that BN needs to study in detail the answer given by SAPP before making any decision:
SAPP president Datuk Seri Panglima Yong Teck Lee said:
1. The SAPP 3-paragraph reply to the BN show cause letter was so simple and clear because it was a mere reiteration of SAPP's loss of confidence on the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced on June 18 and endorsed by the Supreme Council on June 20.
What is so complicated that the BN needs to study in detail? Surely, the PM was stingy with the truth by saying that they (BN) needs to study the SAPP letter in detail.
2. In fact, we are totally disappointed that the BN leadership has again put off a key decision affecting Sabah just in order for them to finish a by-election campaign (Permatang Puah) first.
It shows that the BN has put their political interests above that of the people in Sabah.
Yong said towards this end, SAPP would forge ahead with greater force and unity in pursuits of the party's struggle for the people based on the party's Declaration of eight points, to fight against the `taxflation' and rapid rise in costs of living which had caused hardship to the people.
