Former Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Yong Teck Lee , famously known as Sabah’s YTL, who pulled out his Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) from Barisan Nasional on Sept 17, 2008, had a meeting with Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in Kota Kinabalu, today.
At a Press conference at the opening of Parti Keadilan Rakyat service centre for Kota Kinabalu constituency in Jalan Damai, Luyang this afternoon, Anwar Ibrahim confirmed to reporters that he had invited SAPP to join Pakatan Rakyat.
Anwar is expected to elaborate further about his meeting with the SAPP president in a Press conference at 9am tomorrow before returning to Kuala Lumpur.
Meanwhile, Yong is scheduled to give a Press conference at 12.30pm tomorrow after opening the party’s new office at Putatan Square, Putatan.
Hope this time Yong Teck Lee and SAPP is just doing whats right for the people of Sabah, as this joining with PKR, DAP and PAS in the Pakatan Rakyat alliance, is long overdue.
