SAPP SHELVES 'NO CONFIDENCE MOTION ON PM'


The Sabah Progressive Party's (SAPP) plans to table a motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has been shelved and the reason behind is that it did not want to be blamed if the country’s democracy was derailed through unconstitutional means, like an emergency, the SAPP’s MP for Tawau, Datuk Chua Soon Bui said today at Parliament House.

"The SAPP does not want to be made the scapegoat if there is emergency rule or any outcome that affect the public," Datuk Chua was quoted as saying while she met the Minister in the Prime Minister's department, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, and Dewan Rakyat Speaker, Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia.
Datuk Chua claimed that it seems the goverment is appeared to be doing something about her party's main concern - illegal immigrants in Sabah."and feels that the people voice has been heard."

Datuk Chua also dismissed talk that she was leaving for the Pakatan Rakyat. Datuk Chua said "I am still in the BN."
