2009 Oct 19 - SAPP: Power entity should be under state gov't

SAPP: Power entity should be under state gov't

TAWAU, Oct 19, 2009: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president, Datuk Seri Panglima Yong Teck Lee said he had seen the determination of members in the party which shows the party stand is still being fully supported in their move to fraction themselves out from the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition.

Yong who was in the state to officiate the party's district branches annual meeting cited that the determination will ensure that they will continue to remain relevant to the state in protecting the rights of Sabahans.

"We are doing our audit and to take stock on our members and the impression I saw among those attending this function shows that the move by the party is supported by all", he stated in the event which saw some 500 members attending on October 17.

Yong also explained on the reason behind the move is the need for the party to hold the governing post with full authority to protect the rights of Sabahans instead of being under the umbrella of BN and holding partial power which defeats the aim of the party.

In another matter, he also touched on the constant amenities failure which is being felt by the district in particular power and water supply which had brought much inconveniences to both public and commerce.

Yong said Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) should be held responsible for such hardship faced by the people there and pledged that should SAPP govern the state, it will demand that Sabah Electricity Sdn. Bhd. (SESB) to be given back to be managed by Sabah as TNB presently hold 80 percent of SESB's share.

"We take Sarawak for instance, their power was managed by an entity under the control of it's state government and they did well with such arrangement, we could do the same", he added.

Yong also in response to earlier speeches by Member of Parliament for the district, YB Datuk Chua Soon Bui and former Member of Parliament for the same district, Shim Paw Fatt over the problems faced by people there cited on the application of citizenships by many individuals through the proper channel but are still waiting after tens of years.

"Our mission is to set up a government that is prudence and capable for Sabah", he stated adding that those still waiting for their citizenships after years of waiting will not be sidelined when they come to govern the state.

Earlier, Chua in her speech that they can change and change they will do for the sake of the state which will rely on the people's power as seen in the United State when Barrack Obama was the first black American to be elected to lead the country.

She also said such changes could also be seen elsewhere such as in Japan where a 54-year old government was changed due to the people's power.

"The change is felt in our country in 2008 when BN lost five states and this is not a coincidental matter as people wanted a change", Chua explained.

Chua cited that SAPP opted for the change when they left BN a year ago because they understood the enormity of the task that lies ahead and the challenges that the future will bring changes to all the imbalances suffered by Malaysian in Sabah.

She said SAPP members must therefore understand the party's struggle and the party's 8 points manifesto to bring such change and the party could achieve it because of it's multiracial ethic through the party's stand of "People First, People's Cause is Our Cause".

Chua stress on the need for every leaders and members in demonstrating to the people that they are truly worthy to support and champion the rights of the state.

"The people are fed up with inadequate and unreliable electricity and water supply as well as other amenity such as internet service in line with the country's moving into the world of no borders", she explained.

Chua also said on the state which is the poorest in the country but our Sabahans have to pay an extra 20 percent in goods which is an unfair policy.
