MCA Crisis – New Ideas Brought To Solve Leadership Crisis

By Alan Ting

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 22 (Bernama) — Some quarters in the MCA have come up with yet another option to resolve the party’s leadership crisis — bring forward the party elections scheduled for next year.

“They (the elections) could be held before the end of this year, starting with the branch elections and followed by the divisional elections, and the whole process could be wrapped up by March or April next year,” a source told Bernama.

The source said the option, which is different from the fresh polls for the top party posts requested by a group of Central Committee (CC) members led by vice-president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, could be the best solution to break the current impasse.

The warring factions had previously agreed to hold fresh polls for the MCA top posts but disagreed on the timing, with Liow’s faction initially pushing for the fresh polls to be held by this month at the latest.

However, the faction failed to get the required two-thirds of the CC members to resign. Only 13, including Liow, have sent in their conditional resignation letters. Two-thirds of the 31 elected members of the CC, or 21, must resign for the elections to be held.

“If the party decides to have early elections, which would involve all levels and be nationwide, there is a possibility the majority of the CC members will agree to it,” the source said.

However, initial feedback shows that both sides, that which is aligned to party president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and his deputy Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and that to Liow, do not quite agree to such an option.

Some CC members said it would not make much of a difference while those aligned to Liow were still adamant that fresh polls should be held immediately.

“I don’t think it will make any difference. There is no need to bring forward the party elections. Just observe the time frame. If you hold the polls earlier, either fresh (top posts) polls or early party elections, it will still not solve the problem.

“Why don’t we wait for the proper party elections next year (beginning with branch elections in March). Or why not wait for the direct presidential election system to be implemented first?” asked CC member Eng Hiap Boon.

Another CC member, Wong Nai Chee, also shot down the option, claiming it was just a “smoke screen” strategy by those who did want to go for fresh polls as he believed that only through fresh elections could the party ensure “quick recovery and restoration of party integrity”.

“All the while, we have been talking of fresh elections for the top posts, not about bringing forward party elections,” he said.

He also claimed that those who did not want fresh polls were trying to confuse the party grassroots.

Party veteran Datuk Yap Pian Hon said such an option was not a logical solution even though the CC could decide to bring forward the party elections.

“There are several issues (to be considered) with such an option. First, they must resolve the issue of membership subscription fees with has to be renewed by the end of this year.

“Let’s say you want to start in October. At least by June, the CC has to make the decision and the election steering committee has to be formed and make all the necessary preparations, which could take up to three months,” he said.

  1. ALL Chinese people for 7000 years have put paramount importance on the concept of ” HAVING FACE ” Even if they are dirt poor they would have a good red wedding for their children or a good white funeral for their dead ancestors.All their friends and relatives would give them red packet money or white packet money to maintain their FACE for the community.They would return the same favor to their benefactors in future.
    Let me compare the greatest modern politicians of modern day China.
    1) Sun Yat Seng give FACE to the Chinese People for his great work in taking China back from foreign devils.
    He gave FACE to the Chinese people.
    2)Mao Tze Tung give FACE to the Chinese People for his great work in making China a strong nation again.
    He gave FACE to the Chinese people.
    3)Deng Siew Ping give FACE to the Chinese People for his great work in making China the second largest economy in the world within ten years.
    He gave FACE to the Chinese people.
    Let me compare the infamous modern politicians of modern day Malaysia.
    1)Ong Tee Kiat was accused of taking 10 million ringgit corruption money.He did not give FACE to the Chinese people.
    2)Chua Soi Lek was accused of having oral sex with somebody’s wife.He did not give FACE to the Chinese people.
    3)Liow Tiong Lai was accused of taking a free RM 600,000 luxury car from a corrupted contractor.He did not give FACE to the Chinese people.

    A infamous Chinese politician called Tiong King Sing stole RM 12.5 billion from the people.
    If he did the same thing in China he would be dragged to the execution ground and be shot with a bullet at the back of his ear.Tiong King Sing used the law to cover himself.
    He is telling all the future nations that if you want to steal from the country..You must steal enough to buy off your persecutors.
    This country is a land of milk and honey for Chinese.

  2. Cawat politicians are not capable of cheating the people of 12.5 billion ringgit.Cawat people are good in hunting birds with the blowpipe,catching prawns in small dugout fishing boats with hooks and hand made nets. They collect jungle products like rattan and belian ferns with the parang.They practice shifting cultivation and they catch wild boars with the help of dogs from the jungle.They are not capable of going out to the deep sea for catching big quantities of big fishes in a big trawler and or involve in running major con man enterprises.They simply do not have the means and capability of doing such a big and complicated task.
    Look at the following cawat politicians..
    Penghulu Tawi Sli had the position of Chief Minister of Sarawak.When he left he had nothing more than an extra piece of cawat cloth.Leo Moggie had a the position of Federal Minister.When he left he had nothing more than an extra set of golf sticks which is not uscable in the longhouse. Look at Patai Rubis the former Heatln Director and my former boss.When he left he had nothing more than a shaved botak head.Idris Jala has the position of CEO of MAS.When he left he had nothing more than a Datuk title which has no monetary value in his longhouse.Look at Mawan fighting hard for his rights.When he left he will have nothing more than a sack of white bawang from China as a parting gift from china man Tiong King Sing.I never believe that Stephen Abok is capable of cheating 12.5 billion from PKFZ.He simply do not have the means and capability of doing such a big and complicated task.
    I a West Malaysian who have served in Sarawak for 30 years.I am asking all Sarawakian Foochows ” Lakian A pen he lay ching f Mah? Then nen A seng sing “.In English it means ” Can a jungle man cheat so much money? Who will ever believe ? ”
    Yes,Yes,Yes who will trust him in the first place,,,
