KOTA KINABALU - Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) President Datuk Seri Panglima Yong Teck Lee’s open challenge to DAP leaders Dr. Hiew King Cheu and Jimmy Wong Sze Phin, was a direct response to a flyer which dedicated one full page attacking SAPP and Datuk Yong, said SAPP Luyang Chief Melanie Chia Chui Ket.
Chia said that the flyer was distributed at DAP’s copycat ceramah at Foh Sang next to SAPP’s Kopitiam Political Talk.
“It is only proper that Yong chose the same location for a SAPP – DAP debate.
“DAP leaders in Malaya are very fond of debates but none of the Sabah leaders including Jimmy Wong and Dr. Hiew dare to face the rakyat in any debate. Even the forum on Hudud Law last year saw DAP chickening out.
“SAPP plans a mighty ceramah or forum from April 20th to May 4th. SAPP has an open invitation to both BN and DAP to a debate on the BN Manifesto, DAP Manifesto and SAPP Manifesto. For the Sabah people to choose it is necessary that party manifestos and its leaders standup to scrutiny,” said Chia.
“If none of the DAP or BN Sabah leaders dare to debate SAPP, they can beg their KL masters to come and help them.
