The Bolehland Breaking News: Sapp MPs to move no-confidence vote

(malaysiakini) Sabah Progressive Party (Sapp) today announced that it would move a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi when Parliament resumes on Monday. It is the first time in the history of the nation that a vote of no-confidence is to be moved against a prime minister.

"In the coming sitting of the Parliament session starting Monday, June 23, our MPs will support a vote of no confidence on the PM.

"Whether the motion will be tabled by our party MP or another MP will be decided in due course," said a press statement released today.

Chua (right), who was present a party's 40-minute press conference in Kota Kinabalu, gave four reasons for backing the no-confidence vote. They are:

  • No concrete actions have been taken on the issue of illegal immigrants in Sabah. "Our sovereignty is threatened," said Chua.
  • Sabah, being the poorest state, is greatly burdened by the sharp hike in petrol prices. The government has failed to provide "holistic economic solutions".
  • Sapp MPs would fail in their role as elected representatives as issues raised such as poor delivery systems, corruption, wastage of resources, lack of transparency and no sense of accountability are ignored.
  • People have lost confidence in the leadership of Abdullah. Sapp is of the opinion that if the top leadership can't perform, then Abdullah should make way for other able leader to take over.

Party president Yong Teck Lee said Sapp would not immediately quit the coalition led by Abdullah, but that its status would be reviewed at the end of the week.
He attacked BN's record in the impoverished state, saying that it had been subjected to unfair laws and excessive taxes.

"That is why we need an immediate declaration of no confidence in the PM and the government, to tell the BN government that we can no longer tolerate their insensitive attitude towards the Sabah issues that are real and serious," he said in the press conference held at the party headquarters at 2pm.

While umno launches the ACA against Yong and busy congratulating among themselves and thinking it is a great tactic to shut Yong and bitch slaps him.
RPK wasted no time to press the NUKE button.
The NUKE have names of rosmah , najis, bodohwi , an army colonel , the kolonel's wife and kj written on it.
If RPK's bomb hits the right target , we will get to see the AG petai and IGP musang going to jail as well.
2008 is a great year for Malaysia.
