“We have the central delegate’s list. I do not see any problem (to call for an election). Everything will be ready in one or one and the half month time.”
You see. MCA President Ong Tee Keat in his election manifesto promised direct party elections. A good move which will be implemented by PKR and UMNO as well.
Yeah. By the way, the "most democratic" party - DAP - is so quiet on direct elections. WHY NO ONE IS ATTACKING DAP ON THIS ?
So anyway, I don't see why Dr Wee Ka Siong and Liow Tiong Lai cannot wait till March - right after the direct leadership election system is installed.
Unless of course, it is easier to "convince" 2400 delegates than all the Party members. IF money is involved, it is also cheaper.
If time is involved, it takes lesser time to get 2400 people behind you rather than 150,000 or 1 million members !
I said IF. I didn't say anyone is buying votes, I am not implying anything and I am not accusing anyone. But I won't stop your imagination from flowing freely either.
I am merely pointing out the "follow - up" problems if direct elections are not installed.
To avoid all these unnecessary suspicions and criticisms, it is best that Tee Keat proceed swiftly to introduce the direct election system.
- Ong Tee Keat wants direct party elections system for all members or a big percentage of them to vote
- Wee Ka Siong is asking - Why not now ?
- Liow Tiong Lai has just announced that he will call off the EGM II if and only if the fresh elections are held this year. Read it HERE.
I know MCA members who say that Wee Ka Siong is an asset to MCA. He is a good speaker with great oratory skills.
It is one of my hopes to see Wee Ka Siong, Chua Soi Lek and Ong Tee Keat working together. MCA will be achieving great things under the trio I believe.
As such, I appeal to the MCA Youth Chief to take up Tee Keat's offer to accept the remaining position in the Presidential Council - Vice President.
I believe Tee Keat and supporters are willing to wipe all misunderstandings away.
