Has outspoken Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) President Datuk Yong Teck Lee finally left the Barisan Nasional? After a series of strong statements, including an ultimatum that the BN Government resolve long-standing issues in Sabah rumours are rife that the former Member of Parliament and Chief Minister has resigned from the ruling coalition, New Straits Times reported yesterday. Not spared from the rumour mill is Sepanggar Member of Parliament Eric Majimbun and Tawau Member of Parliament Datuk Dr Chua Soon Bid. Asked on Saturday whether there was any truth in the rumour, Yong evaded the question. He had once said that he would give BN until August to resolve the issues in Sabah or SAPP members might leave the coalition. Meanwhile, Gua Musang Member of Parliament Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah reiterated to Bernama yesterday that a BN component party will leave the coalition at the end of this month. He only said the Party is from East Malaysia. When contacted in Kuala Lumpur, the Umno veteran declined to identify the party. The former Finance Minister said in Mentakab on Saturday that he received news that one Party would leave the BN before the end of the month.
