PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah’s incomptency is being blackmailed into corruption

SAPP President Dato’ Yong Yong Teck Lee yesterday dropped off a bombshell. He announced in a press conference that on Monday, the second Dewan Rakyat session, he and SAPP will moot the motion of vote of no confidence against PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

The motion is against the UMNO President who is the BN Chairman and not the ruling coalition (BN) in the Dewan Rakyat.

Some people believe that this was Yong and/or SAPP way of “calling a bluff”, most probably for more goodies, which include quangoes. Most probably the attempt to unseat PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah will not happen, despite BN Back Benchers Club (BN BBC) in the Dewan Rakyat for the first time in history is lesser than the Oppositions. Regardless, it is a dangerous precedence set.

PM Says Teck Lee Acted Out Of Personal Greed

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.


He blames Yong for unable to satisfy the latter’s “personal greed”. Previously, in the first meeting PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah had with Sabah BN leaders just few days after BN had their humiliating and record breaking result of losing 5 + 1 states, Yong strongly brought up a lot of issues concerning the Sabah people.

PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah met Yong several more times after that. And the past few weeks, the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and several Cabinet Ministers including the powerful Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yackop were in Sabah to meet Sabah BN leaders. Yong has been known to raise deemed pertinent to Sabahans from previous meetings and engagements with PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah, be it in Sabah or Kuala Lumpur the past three months.

Why the Federal Government still unable to resolve these issues, that brought a point SAPP in making an unprecedented attempt to unseat PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah?

The most important part from PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah’s spontaneous reaction here is, “to satisfy the greed of Sabah BN leaders”. Is that how PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah resolve issues and obtain their loyalty, by satisfying their greed?

If that is so, then truly PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah weak leadership and incompetency is being exploited into being blackmailed and thus resolves into practicing ‘money politics’ of the highest level, but on the cheapest and lowest node.

BNBBC To Discuss Action By SAPP MPs Next Week

KUALA LUMPUR, June 19 (Bernama) — The Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club (BNBBC) will hold a special meeting next week to discuss the move by two Members of Parliament (MPs) from the Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) to support a motion on a vote of `no confidence’ on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi at the Dewan Rakyat sitting.

BNBBC chairman Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing said the BNBBC was deeply concerned over the move by the Sepanggar MP Datuk Eric Enchin Majimbun and Tawau MP Datuk Dr Chua Soon Bui as it represented an open criticism on the Barisan Nasional (BN) leadership.

“The BNBBC is of the view that if immediate action is not taken against the duo, it can affect the position of the BN and erode the people’s confidence in the coalition,” he told Bernama, here Thursday.

Tiong, who declined to comment on the possibility of disciplinary action being taken against the two MPs, said this depended on subsequent action taken by them.

“Based on what we read in the newspapers today, they are not the ones to table the motion, they merely support it. But we will see subsequent developments,” he said.

Tiong said the outcome of the BNBBC meeting would be forwarded to Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who is also the Chief Whip, for further action.

On Wednesday, SAPP president Datuk Yong Teck Lee declared that the party had lost confidence in the leadership of the Prime Minister and the party’s two MPs would support the motion of `no confidence’ at the Dewan Rakyat sitting which begins on Monday.

Meanwhile the Dewan Rakyat Speaker’s office, when contacted by Bernama this morning, said no motion on the matter had been received so far.

  1. flip-flop should leave the govt.”taubat nasuha” and returned all the monies belonging to the public including his cronies…..amin..amin or he will face judicery

  2. Bigdoggy,

    Great move by SAPP.
    UMNO in Sabah failed.

  3. Satu komen spontan terhadap Yong dari Abdullah Badawi yang sangat bahaya. Mengocak air dan terpercik merata! Ketamakan jugalah yang memaksa Abdullah mahu kekal atau dipaksa kekal pada pandangan umum.

    Kecualilah ahli politik bermain dengan isu yang amat noble. Tidak ramai saya rasa.

  4. umno sabah failed? mereka takda tanggungjawab ke? mereka sebahagian daripada kuasa pemerintahan disana..tindakan mereka sekarang ini yang mencerminkan mereka ini tidak bertanggungjawab.. ada masalah sikit ugut nak lari, lepas tu lari, nanti dah lompat parti lain, lepas tu gagal lagi, lompat lagi..sampai bila nak macam tu?sentiasa lari dari masalah?

  5. Bigdoggy,

    Sabah mmg terkenal dengan “lompatannya yang unik”. mmg suka melompat parti2 kat sabah ni… tikam belakang pun pernah terjadi dulu masa zaman tdm.. tapi saya sokong lompatan mana2 parti keluar dari BN… biar dollah tidak lagi menjadi PM… sekarang ni masalahnya cuma nak bagi dollah ni turun.. tapi dia degil… nak memerangi rasuah… tapi terang2 bagi rasuah… kat utusan hari ni nk bagi yong teck lee senator lah, wakil khaslah… for what? rasanya bukan itu yang dia nak… yong nak dollah turun… tapi dollah nak SUAP dia… tak jalan…. kalau betullah teori saya… saya respect yong… tapi kalo anu war aljub yang dapat untungnya… saya rasa benda ni akan jadi lebih menyusahkan rakyat nanti…. am still hoping that TDM will make a comeback to lead malaysia… even just for a year….


  6. ya, his failure is probably in being too soft or having a kind heart with no definite decisions, unlike tdm’s kuku besi, no nonsense approach to take care of business. the only good thing to come out of it all is that the rakyat has awakened and a lot of the stories are coming out, people are questioning their rights which is another good thing so we can settle once and for all, where everyone stands in this country called malaysia. not just the different races in peninsula but also in sabah and sarawak. so the timing right indeed whatever his motives are.

  7. “The most important part from PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah’s spontaneous reaction here is, “to satisfy the greed of Sabah BN leaders” – is this accurate when the very Bername article in ur post here says that Pak Lah said he wasn’t able to satisfy Yong’s PERSONAL greed? I think we are missing something here, we are missing the fact that a senatorship and the position of a special envoy aren’t enough for Yong; we are missing the fact of his absence in some key meetings, citing the reason as “he did not see anything much coming out of it.” ; and very importantly, it is not a SAPP stance, but Yong and the 2 delinquent MPs – this much is crystal clear now; this is also not the first time Yong is staging something like this,

    “In 1994, he had abandoned the Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) president and then chief minister Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan, who was instrumental in bringing him into politics.

    Yong had then led a group of Chinese assemblymen and members of parliament to leave the PBS to form SAPP.

    He was part of a massive defection from the PBS, engineered by then deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, which successfully deposed Pairin.”

    NST – 2008/06/19

    lastly, I think a reality is grossly distorted here – u dun get blackmailed because u’re weak, that’s condoning this inherently wrong conduct by a Greed God.

  8. memang si Yong ni tak puas hati, dulu dia mintak nak jadi senator pak lah tak menyokong beliau..lepas tu campur entah sapa2 yang menghasut lg tu..

  9. Pak Lah said Yong acted out of greed?

    Look who’s talking. For one who’s still living in denial to the fact that majority Malaysians no longer have faith in his leadership…yet he still clings on to his (beloved) PMs position. Who’s the greedy now?

    Now, ACA has moved in to investigate Yong’s alleged dealings about some company’s shares worth RM5 million. What was that Pak Lah? Your way of retaliating to SAPPs proposed move of no confidence vote against you in Parliament? Your new War Chant? It used to be “Saya pantang dicabar”, now it’s “Saya pantang ditegur” is it?

  10. […] Kali, as usual, tried to demonize Tun Dr. Mahathir with distorted facts. One of BN component party, SAPP announced their withdrawal from the coalition. Possibly related posts: (automatically generated)Tun Dr. Mahathir out to check […]
