BN Lashes Out At Yong Teck Lee

All Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties Thursday strongly criticised the statement by Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Yong Teck Lee that the party had lost confidence in the leadership of the Prime Minister, describing it as lacking principles, unethical and going against the BN's spirit of consensus.

Leaders of the 12 BN component parties present unanimously expressed their solid support for Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, according to a statement from the BN Supreme Council which was read by BN secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor after the meeting which lasted more than three hours at Menara Datuk Onn, Pusat Dagangan Dunia Putra here.

The Supreme Council, however, postponed decision on the form of action to be taken against the SAPP until it had confirmed or refuted the validity of the statement made by Yong Wednesday.

"Action on the SAPP will only be decided after obtaining clarification officially from the party's Supreme Council on Yong's statement," he said.

At the meeting, all BN component party leaders were asked and subsequently agreed to ensure that all the BN Members of Parliament from their respective parties were present throughout the Parliament session and follow the instruction of the BN whip and reject any motion on the vote of `no confidence' against Abdullah.

Meanwhile, when asked why SAPP representatives were not invited to the meeting, Tengku Adnan said it was because the meeting was discussing matters that involved the interest of the SAPP.

Asked why the BN Supreme Council did not take the opportunity to ask and listen to the views of the SAPP on all the related issues, Tengku Adnan said their presence was not necessary as the party's views had been stated through the mass media.

He said the SAPP should have discussed with the top leadership before making the declaration that it had lost confidence in the Prime Minister.
