It has to do with the fact Yong Teck Lee wanted to be appointed as a senator in which Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said no. This is a kind of political blackmailing that the BN does not want from anyone or any party. Yong's action is no better than the MB of Kedah threatening to destroy the environment by felling trees, around a water catchment areas, worth RM15 billion, if the Federal government does not give money to the state. But the fact is the Federal Government does give money to the opposition held Kedah as a matter of a Federal-States agreement.
Meanwhile Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim can claim all the credits he wants from SAPP turnaround but the truth is he has nothing to do with Yong's double cross.
A BN council will meet and I believe Yong Teck Lee and the two other turncoats will be expelled but I suspect SAPP will remain in the coalition.
PUTRAJAYA, June 18 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi says Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) President Datuk Yong Teck Lee's latest action has been due to the fact that "I have not been able to satisfy his personal greed."
Abdullah did not elaborate. However, his aides told Bernama that the prime minister would elaborate at a later date.
Yong declared in Kota Kinabalu on Wednesday that his party had lost confidence in Abdullah.
Of late, the former Sabah chief minister has been critical of Abdullah's political decisions on Sabah as well as the move to increase fuel prices.
