Senior SAPP official hints of bombshell
Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP), long rumoured to be planning to quit the Barisan Nasional Coalition, is expected to drop a bombshell today that may lead to a drastic change of political scenario in Malaysia. According to a senior SAPP official who spoke on condition bf anonymity, the Party leadership will be making an important announcement and declaration at a news conference here today. However, he declined to go into the details of the announcement except saying “you’ll find out about it at the news conference”. He nevertheless stressed that whatever announcement there may be, it has been well thought out with the State and the people’s interest in mind. He also assured that SAPP would not be the “Lone Ranger” in this case. Asked on SAPP Deputy President Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiab’s denial earlier that the Party is not ditching the BN before the end of the month, he quipped that it was just part and parcel of “political maneuvers”.
