Declaration absurd and deplorable, says LDP

LDP President Datuk V K Liew has described the action by SAPP in declaring no confidence against the Prime Minister as absurd and deplorable. He said it was calculated to destabilize the BN Coalition Government and oust Abdullah who is a legitimate Prime Minister voted in by and for people in the last general election. “I find it absolutely deplorable for SAPP to make such an absurd and nonsensical move of no confidence on Pak Lah,” said Liew yesterday. The Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister was commenting on the declaration by SAPP President Datuk Seri Panglima Yong Teck Lee, yesterday that the SAPP had lost confidence in the leadership of Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. Liew said Yong’s move was personal and that the latter has no interest of the State and the people in mind. “He (Yong) is doing it for his own agenda. It is Liew calculated to destabilize the Coalition Government and to oust Pak Lah who is a legitimate PM. “This arm twisting tactic by Yong is politically unacceptable and should be discouraged,” said Liew. As for the LDP, he reiterated the Party’s undivided loyalty to the BN and dedication to its cause and struggle. “We will continue to throw our fullest support to Pak lah as our PM,” Liew assured.
