The MCA Leadership

  • MCA's biggest problem was never with their coalition partners. The Party's dilemma lies with the internal affairs.
  • Factions exists in all parties but the line has always been clear under MCA when it comes to power groups.
  • In the past, we had Team A vs Team B till Dr Mahathir had to step in and broker a peaceful solution for the sake of Barisan Nasional.
  • Remember the time when Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik faced Tan Sri Lim Ah Lek?
  • MCA went on to be strong under Ong Ka Ting and Chan Kong Choy, although I am sure differences existed between them.
  • The problem with MCA was not meant to be between the top two leaders then. Perhaps it was destiny that placed the MCA Vice President as a challenger to the party leadership.
  • There were talks that although the former Health Minister visited more than 70% of the hospitals in Malaysia, he did the same with MCA too.
  • Some groups were not happy that there were moves to challenge the top leadership of MCA. Although it is democratic, but MCA's leadership at that time were solid and strong.
  • I remember reading newspaper reports and articles about how Ong Ka Ting spent his time talking to the poor and needy folks. He even spent a lot of his time on the Government scholarships and loans cases.
  • In most cases, he was very helpful and looked for ways to help everyone within his means.
  • A challenge on the MCA leadership that has done nothing wrong but brought progress to the party is unacceptable, I believe.
  • Today, we suddenly hear about a case against Dr Chua Soi Lek, Deputy President of MCA, for a part in the sex DVD scandal that involves sex against nature, i.e. oral sex in this case.
  • To be honest, I didn't know there are laws which govern how people have sex in Malaysia. That is surprising but not worthy of discussion today.
  • When the DVDs were out last year, Ong Ka Ting and Chan Kong Choy were at the receiving end of anger, blame and all sorts of allegations.
  • With the fresh case now, all eyes are on Ong Tee Keat and his team. Ong Tee Keat is a President who stays focus on what he does in the Government and in the Party he presides.
  • “Now it is me and other party leaders. You have to ask the person making the allegations if there is any political motivation.
  • When this move takes place, MCA members should take a look at the Party. Is this what MCA needs when the Party is in a critical phase of winning the support of the people?
  • Is it good for the Party if someone claims there are political conspiracies against him and he uses these as a motivation and reason for him to step up against the Party leadership to takeover as President of MCA?
  • MCA members must think. Think you must, and think hard!
