Easterly wind is blowing
The easterly wind is blowing. The Sabah Progressive Party is holding a press conference meeting today at 2pm to announce a major decision. Until last evening, SAPP officials maintained silence on speculations that the party was pulling out from the Barisan Nasional. According to informed sources, this is unlikely to happen. But the SAPP is expected to unveil some kind of declaration that it wants the Prime Minister to do. It also want to see what kind of reaction it would receive following the press conference today, particularly from the other Sabah parties. In the semenanjung, the talk of MCA defecting to the Pakatan Rakyat as claimed by Anwar Ibrahim is a non-starter. The party, which has 15 MPs, has reacted strongly to the claim and even among political analysts, not many believed the claim and is wondering why Anwar brought it up. From the land below the wind, let's see whether the easterly wind will turn into a storm.
