BARISAN NASIONAL MEET TO DISCUSS ON SAPP'S STAND


The Barisan Nasional Supreme Council is holding an emergency meeting now to discuss on the betrayal of Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) resolution that they will make an VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE against the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi at Parliament on Monday.
The reason for this call is Datuk Seri Abdullah's weak leadership since Sabahans have expressed deep concern for the illegal immigrant problem that was actual created by UMNO and the fear of UMNO in forming a Royal Commission of Inquiry(RCI) to deal with the matter. UMNO fears the RCI will expose the 'dirty-tactics' used to win votes.
Datuk Seri Abdullah recently announced a Cabinet Committee to deal with this matter. This is the second time such a committee has been formed but the end result has been very unsatisfactorily.
SAPP fate may lie with the BN component leaders but if any drastic decision is undertaken, BN will further be weaken, since the disastrous defeat in the recently concluded election and with in-side UMNO fighting.
What ever the decision, SAPP will not bulge unless the BN leadership agree to the formation of a RCI to resolve the illegal immigrant problem.
It seems surprising that UMNO can do what it wants and get what it wants and does not want to listen to the plight of the other component parties which claims that it manages the country on a collective manner.
