SAPP Yong calls on all Sabah DAP elected reps to quit

KOTA KINABALU - Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Yong Teck Lee has called for all Democratic Action Party (DAP) elected representatives in Sabah to resign for having a 'frog' in the party.

Speaking to reporters after launching the SAPP Kota Kinabalu-Penampang joint annual general meeting at the Grand Port View Restaurant here yesterday, Yong said only about six months after the general election, mostly all of what they said during the campaigning period were proven right, including the Luyang assemblyman leaving the party after winning.

"It is true that only after six months, Luyang assemblyman Hiew King Cheu has left the party and now supporting Barisan Nasional (BN). He was the one who accused our party as BN agent but now he is a frog.

"During the first State Assembly sitting after the election, Hiew clearly said he is confident with the BN Sabah leadership. Although he has not joined any BN party, he has already befriended BN. That is why I urge all DAP YBs to resign for having a frog in the party," he said.

Yong also said that SAPP would always be relevant for Sabahans as the party is genuinely fighting for the rights of Sabah without being influenced by divide-and-rule method from the Peninsular.

Asked about where the party's direction is after not winning any seats in the recently concluded election, Yong stressed that the party is currently keeping a low profile, giving time to its members to consolidate, and to observe everything they have said in the election, which is currently happening under the leadership of BN.

"During the campaigning period, we have already said if BN wins, our fuel price will increase while essential goods are continuously going up following the fuel hike.

"Since the next election is still a few years to go, SAPP will keep strengthening and focus on our congress next year. People in the urban areas thought if they vote for Pakatan Rakyat there will be a change, while in the rural areas they have been hoping that BN will protect them. We have proven them wrong, and we will make a comeback in the next election," he promised.

Earlier in his launching speech, Yong said the result of losing in the election had been predicted in the party many years ago, where it would be the real test for SAPP's resilience.

"It was 18 years ago when SAPP was launched, we predicted that all SAPP YBs will lose in the election, but they will come back with a stronger voice.

"If we come back to break our 'telur' (zero seat) in the next elections, it will prove that SAPP has passed the resilience test. This is what we want," he told hundreds of SAPP members from Kota Kinabalu and Penampang.

Seven other Constituency Liaison Committee chairmen or their representatives, namely, Mulkaseh Renda (Karambunai), Datuk Eric Majimbun (Inanam), Wong Vui Khim (Api Api), Melanie Chia (Luyang), Fong Chiew Loong (Tanjung Aru), Chong Pit Fah (Kapayan) and Aloysius Danim Siap (Moyog) also spoke at the half-day event.
