The Malaysiakini report:

The Sabah Progressive Party (Sapp) has decided to pull out of the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition to become an independent party.


The party’s supreme council, which met this afternoon, will not join the opposition Pakatan Rakyat for now.

An upset Sapp deputy president Raymond Tan, who walked out of the council meeting, said he would resign as Sabah deputy chief minister and state minister for infrastructure development.

The party has two parliamentarians and four state assemblypersons. -
Staying independant for now? I think its only a matter of time SAPP will join Pakatan. They can't afford to stay as a 3rd party when there are 2 major parties.

Perhaps this will cause a snowballing effect?

UPDATE: Elopura assemblyman Au Kam Wah has quit the party.
