For months Malaysians have been hearing that BN elected representatives would DEFECT which will result in the Barisan Nasional (BN) would lose its controlling power in governing the country for the first time in Malaysian history. BN have been ruling since Independence.

Its widely reported that Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) has called for a press conference tomorrow (Wednesday) at 2pm to inform that they will be leaving the BN since their demand for a Royal Commission of Inquiry on the illegal immigrant issue has fallen in deaf ears. Sabahans have viewed this matter as a serious matter but since this creation is by the UMNO BN people, every effort seem to indicate that the BN leadership is not interested in pursuing this matter with seriousness. UMNO Sabah was able to administer the country due to the assistance of these illegal immigrant voting for them. MyKad very easily given to these illegal immigrants for their undivided vote for the UMNO BN.

Although SAPP may not be that strong in respect of only having 2 MPs, but any defection from BN will trigger a chain reactions, since almost most BN component parties are very unhappy with the way UMNO seems to dominate the coalition.

At last, there is signs that BN is on its way to collapse.
