KOTA KINABALU: Jun 16, 2008
Has outspoken Sabah Progressive Party president Datuk Yong Teck Lee finally left 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.
Not spared from the rumour mill is Sepanggar MP Eric Majimbun and Tawau MP Datuk Dr Chua Soon Bui.
Asked yesterday 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.
