But I am also a supporter of fresh party polls since I dislike Anwaristas in MCA to continue bugging MCA with claims that they have the support and numbers against the leadership.
Now that the Central Committee members have rejected the 28th November EGM and against fresh party polls, it is time for me to comment why this is not right.
This might draw flak and criticisms from Tee Keat's camp, one which I have supported since the very beginning.
You see, there are many ways to deliver and play the political game. It is just that I don't believe the current game plan will do MCA any good and will not strengthen MCA in Malaysian politics.
I am of the opinion that the Central Committee (or Presidential Council) overlooked one important point.
- Liow Tiong Lai is still Penang MCA Chief and Vice President
- Wee Ka Siong is still National MCA Youth Chief
- Chew Mei Fun is still National Wanita MCA Chief
Sacking Ka Siong and Mei Fun from the MCA Presidential Council might be a strategic move to ensure one voice in the top MCA leadership, but it will be costly indeed.
Both Mei Fun and Ka Siong still call the shots in Wanita MCA and Pemuda MCA at the national level.
When it comes to the General Election, the organisation chart must be obeyed and the order of seniority must be followed in MCA machinery.
Reshuffling is good as we need a team in MCA to be able to work together to win seats for Barisan Nasional.
But Ka Siong and Mei Fun are still the ELECTED Chief of the Youth and Wanita MCA wings.
Their roles are vital in mobilizing supporters and election staff across the nation in order to win votes and seats for MCA (Barisan Nasional).
Did the Central Committee consider this point or not ? Does the Central Committee have answers to this ?
Without the ELECTED Youth Chief and Wanita Chief, I don't know how things will work.
Putting Dr Mah Hang Soon (Deputy Youth Chief) and Senator Heng Seai Kie (Wanita Sec Gen) in the Presidential Council will still ensure that both movements are represented.
But as I said, order of ranks must be obeyed and Dr Mah Hang Soon and Senator Heng Seai Kie could be in a dilemma since their movements' highest ranking officers are still Wee Ka Siong and Chew Mei Fun.
This is a fact which we cannot deny and problems will exist when MCA mobilize their Election Machinery.
Thus, either a fresh polls or the removal of Wee Ka Siong and Chew Mei Fun might solve the problem from this perspective.
I am afraid that wrapping the differences under a protective cover will only cause the wounds to show and get deeper during the General Election.
Sabotages might happen, order of seniority will not be respected. This will be a problem and I have a hunch that the internal party crisis might jeopardize MCA chances in the Elections.
As far as I can see, the current game plan is being played in a wrong way. Though it is authoritative, it is a quite worrisome that the moves are overboard.
I discussed with a fellow blogger and I have been informed that MCA Presidential Council deals only with policy and administrative matters. Both Ka Siong and Mei Fun are still in the Central Committee.
Well, someone high up in MCA ought to come out explain to us and clear the air I hope. Otherwise, questions will still be left unanswered among the Chinese community and Party members.
I stand corrected.
