They are ditching Yong Teck Lee!!!

Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah is expected to tender his resignation letter on Monday, and quit from all posts in the state cabinet.

Tan, who is Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) deputy president, said he needed to wait until Monday to meet Musa and hand over his resignation letter. Musa is currently out-station

Tan, who is also State Infrastructure Development Minister, was among the SAPP supreme councillors who disagreed with the party’s loss of confidence in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and decision to leave the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition yesterday.

He has not decided whether he will leave the party.

However, he said he would consider feedback from grassroot supporters to determine his status in the party.

In another development SAPP vice-president Jimmy Wong and the party’s youth chief Au Kam Wah have both resigned from the party. Both said it was against their conscience to remain the party, which pulled out of the Barisan Nasional coalition yesterday.

Au, who is also Elopura state assemblyman, said he will remain as an independent despite getting offers from BN parties and Opposition.

Wong said he would also let Musa decide his position as a Political Secretary to the Chief Minister.
