So kesimpulannya, got confidence or not??Posted: July 11, 2008
I am finding this very frustrating. So in the end, does SAPP have confidence in Pak Lah’s leadership or not?
First, they started off with a bang right before the second session of Parliament began, saying that they will support any vote of no confidence against Pak Lah.
Then after that, since nothing happened in Parliament, SAPP was issued a show-cause letter to explain why they want to take that stand, and were given 30 days to answer.
And then, before the 30 days are over, SAPP decides to “put on hold” their “no confidence issue”, giving the following reason:
“We do not want to be made the scapegoat. We will have to take responsibility if there is emergency rule or any outcome that will affect the general public,” – SAPP Vice President Dr Chua Soon Bui.
But when they decided to “put on hold”, Yong Teck Lee, the party president, had something else to say:
“I had alerted her [Dr Chua] that we had discovered the tactic of the Barisan leaders to use her and deputy president cum Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Raymond Tan to split SAPP and isolate Yong Teck Lee,”
So Yong thinks that giving grace period of 30-days was actually a “tactic” by Barisan Leaders to “split SAPP”.
And then just a few days down the road, after Pakatan Rakyat decided to file a motion of no confidence (minus the vote), SAPP is back on track, saying that they will support the motion against the PM.
And this time, this is what Malaysian Insider reported:
The Chinese-based party froze the proposal after it claimed there were threats against its MPs from others angry with “the prospect that two non-Malay MPs from SAPP was going to bring a Malay Prime Minister into disrepute.”
“Now that a motion of no confidence is being proposed by a Malay MP (Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah), the race factor is eased,” the party said in a statement released today.
IF (and this is one VERY big if) I’m reading into this correctly, the main thing that was stopping the two MPs from SAPP from filing the motion of no confidence was because the both of them are Chinese.
Come on lah, got confidence means got confidence. No confidence means no confidence. Apasal banyak sangat gostan kiri kanan? And besides, does this mean that it takes a Malay to have no confidence in a Malay, and a Chinese cannot have no confidence in a Malay without having another Malay have no confidence first?
