Musa Regrets SAPP's Support For A Vote Of No Confidence On PM

KOTA KINABALU, June 18 (Bernama)

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman has expressed disappointment over the declaration by Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Yong Teck Lee that his party's members of parliament will support a no-confidence vote on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

"I'm not sure what is SAPP's real motive in making such a move," he said in a statement.

"As a Barisan Nasional (BN) component party president, Yong's act was uncalled for and unprecedented in the spirit of camaraderie adopted by BN all this while."

Musa, who is Sabah BN chairman, was commenting on the declaration by Yong today that his party had lost confidence in Abdullah.

Yong claimed that the party's two members of parliament (Sepanggar and Tawau) would support a motion for a vote of no confidence against the prime minister in the coming Parliament sitting on Monday.

Yong, a former Sabah Chief Minister, said Sepanggar MP Datuk Eric Enchin Majimbun, who is now overseas on official duty, had made his stand in a signed press statement, while Tawau MP Datuk Dr Chua Soon Bui, also took a similar position in a signed statement.
