No Confidence Vote Against PM Badawi

I was rather shocked to hear that one of the key components of the Barisan Nasional, Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP), has lost their confidence in PM Badawi's leadership. This is rather a move where by it might trigger a resignation of Badawi sooner than expected. This is, however, a matter of urgency as the delay of Badawi's hand over to his successor , Datuk Najib might have to be speed up a little.

I think the most important question is whether Badawi is willing to hand over the power to Najib now as he has been under a lot of pressure lately. I don't see why he should go now. Perhaps SAPP is a pro Mahathir supporter, perhaps? I have no clues, though. What I do understand is that Badawi should resign but we are not sure when he is going to do that. Right now, we have a situation where by the leadership under Badawi is in question and so a solution should be drawn up to prevent any dispute within the coalition government of Barisan Nasional, don't you think so?
