With all the happenings in MCA since the 12th General assembly, we might ask ourselves, are these MCA leaders really fighting to serve the Malaysian Chinese? Even the most idiot will answer a big “No”!
After the MCA EGM, Party President, Ong Tee Keat and disposed Deputy President at that time, Chua Soi Lek was voted out off MCA by the delegates. If they had acted on behalf of the MCA members and the Malaysian Chinese in general, they would have said it is time to hang up their gloves. But, this did not happen. Instead, Ong and Chua partnered up and said they want unity in MCA. Don’t forget that Chua was actually fired from MCA by Ong before this! What a weird partnership!
Ong Tee Keat and Chua Soi Lek really knows what will be their luck if they resigned and a new fresh election be held. That will be their last in politics. This means Ong Tee Keat wll not only lose his MCA post but also his Transport Minister’s post as well! So, after the MCA EGM, he has to somehow maneuvre back to hold on to his MCA post. While for Chua, partnering back with his old foe, Ong, was the only way he can make a political come back!
Then comes MCA’s Vice President, Datuk Liow Tiong Lai. You see, Ong and Chua forgot about Liow when they partnered up. When Chua was sacked from his deputy post earlier, it was Liow who replaced him. When Ong and Chua was united, definitely Chua should be reinstated back as the MCA Deputy President. Malaysian Prime Minister tried to do his bit for MCA. Earlier, Chua had asked the ROS to reinstate him as the MCA Deputy President.
PM Najib Tun Razak might have played a role when ROS announced that Chua is the rightful Deputy President of MCA and not Liow. The announcement was well received by Chua’s former foe, Ong Tee Keat. Najib might have thought when Chua is reinstated, MCA’s crisis will be over, which will be good for his misleading One Malaysia! Well, as we all know, Najib is not that brilliant. When he thought he had solved the problems between Ong’s and Chua’s faction, he forgot about the third faction or the third force!
When all this happened, Liow found himsef in a gloomy position in MCA. Liow would have seen his chances to become the next president of MCA, shinning, when MCA’s EGM voted out Ong and Chua. It was his golden opportunity to lead MCA. If Ong and Chua leaves the MCA’s leadership, then who else will lead the party if not Liow, since he is the standing Deputy President! This means Liow is going to be the biggest loser among the three. So, Liow started to counter by asking Ong and Chua to respect the decisions made in the MCA EGM and quit MCA which will pave the way for him to lead MCA.
Liow with his allies, Wee Ka Siong, the MCA Youth leader, Chew Mei Fun, the MCA Woman’s leader and his other supporters are staging their bid to recover their lost ground. It is now, Liow’s faction against Ong and Chua’s united faction, not Chua vs Ong anymore. How long this scramble to wrest control of the MCA leadership will last, remains to be seen.
But, it is the future of the Malaysian Chinese, that is at stake here. These power crazy leaders only wants to fulfiil their lust for power. Everything they do or fight is only for themselves. In Barisan Nasional politics, power means money! So, they will fight to their last drop of blood! I think, it is better for the Malaysian Chinese to stick on with Pakatan Rakyat since their future is very bright there compared with BN.
