Datuk Yong Teck Lee - Batu Sapi

Everybody is focusing their attention on the ongoing three-corner fight between BN, SAPP and PKR in Batu Sapi buy-election or buy-erection. Opps.. it shall reads as  'by-election' please forgive me.


Not that I like Datuk Yong Teck Lee so much, just that for this time around, if you ask me, I prefer to throw my support behind SAPP to win the Batu Sapi by-election.


I believe Datuk Yong or 'Taiko' has the necessary requirement to represent the people of Batu Sapi. He is an experience lawyer, administrator and social activist. 


He is already very rich, so I don't think getting richer is his main intention at the moment. 


Since he left BN he was very active representing the people in defending Native Costumary Right (NCR) land in Sabah as well as promoting awareness to the people of Sabah on the needs to get back what was once belong to us, the 20-Points Agreement. 


Having seen what he did for the people, I think we must give him another chance to prove his worth. Some people called him as 'frog/toad'. I shared the same displeasure on his past action, party hopping but we must not forget that everybody make mistakes. 


Below is some of  Datuk Yong's bio-data.
