Today, several UMNO leaders have voiced out their opinions on the MCA leadership crisis which I am sure will also be used by ambitious MCA leaders.

This argument is also heavily used by some Barisan Nasional supporters and leaders. Fellow Barisan Nasional comrades and respected leaders tend to forget some past events.
When the argument that a simple majority voted no-confidence on Tee Keat is used, the same argument can also be used for the Perak leadership crisis and Terengganu leadership crisis.
In Perak when the Government of the day did not receive popular support from the people took office and sparked a crisis in the State, the Constitution was referred to as the most supreme order and became a major point of reference.
In Terengganu, the majority of the lawmakers were not in favor of the Menteri Besar of the day but favored by the Palace, the Constitution was again referred to for decisions and the rights of the Constitutional monarchy was upheld.
Both cases saw the State Constitution upheld when a deadlock surfaced.
The same can be said for MCA. The President of MCA can only be removed with a 2/3 majority. The Constitution of Perak and Terengganu exist for a reason, not for decoration. The Constitution of MCA also exists for a reason, not for decoration.
Each time a crisis occurs, the legally binding and well designed Constitution is used as a reference and a problem or deadlock solver.
More retaliation arguments will do no one any good and Barisan Nasional must let MCA deal with the problems where a non aligned and independent Tee Keat in MCA takes on the alliances and ambitious factions in MCA.
Barisan Nasional must not let hell break loose in the coalition. We will be the ones losing out only if we quarrel inter coalition parties.
