PETALING JAYA: Jun 21, 2008
Barisan Nasional is considering issuing a show-cause letter to Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) for deciding to go ahead with a move to support a no-confidence vote against Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
On Friday, the SAPP supreme council endorsed its president Datuk Yong Teck Lee's call to support a vote of no confidence against the Prime Minister in Parliament on Monday.
Barisan secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor told mstar.com.my that he would discuss this with Abdullah, the coalition's chairman.
"I will ask for Abdullah's views for SAPP to be slapped with a show-cause letter on its decision to go ahead with a no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister," he added.
"Barisan is like a family. They (SAPP) are like a son who wants to remain in the family but cannot get along with the father," he said.
Tengku Adnan said he believed the motion would not be tabled on Monday because several procedures must be adhered to first.
"Furthermore, until Sunday, the motion had yet to be filed. If it is accepted, it will have to go through certain procedures and I don't think it will be proposed in Parliament on Monday as claimed by SAPP," he said.
