MCA 2010 Election Analysis

The results for MCA 2010 Election were disappointing. I have many things to say but I shall highlight a few of my thoughts based on my inside information.

  1. MCA's new office bearers consist of leaders who have investigation files with MACC, PAC as well as the Police which have yet to be concluded or announced. Google and newspapers are easily accessible to confirm this.

  2. Yen Yen is the first one to say that MCA has forgiven Soi Lek. Note that she said MCA. And MCA is possibly the first party in the world to have a sex scandal politician as President though I must agree that is his personal problem.

  3. Ong Tee Keat's team must do a post mortem and see where they went wrong. An honest and sincere reporting must be handed up to the Chief - be it the fault of the team or the errors made by the former President himself.

  4. It is also said that someone in the former President Ong Tee Keat's camp betrayed the team at the last moment by asking the Delegates not to vote for the President. Can anyone confirm this ?

  5. Congratulations to all the new office bearers. All the best to all of you. You are now the "trustees" and "representatives" of the national body for 1 year.

  6. The circus in MCA will take place again in 2011 (Constitutionally required Party Election) with many Branches and Divisions starting their meetings as early as the end of this year.

  7. Will MCA move towards a similar structure like the DAP (Father - son) ? Will MCA continue to speak up and be vocal on issues ? Or will MCA be pushovers and eunuchs ? Is MCA able to face DAP and rise again to be relevant ?

  8. The Malaysian community will be watching MCA with hawk eyes. Tee Keat has some words to say to all. Read his note here - Congratulations to the Victors of MCA elections

  9. But Wanita MCA Chief Chew Mei Fun must resign with immediate effect. She said that if Soi Lek is made President, she will go. Latest news : Chew to consult committee before making quit decision. We still remember what she told the former President.

27 March 2010, Wisma MCA

This afternoon, the Facebook group administered by a group of youths - You'll Never Walk Alone <> We Walk With You - decided to check out the final campaigning day at Wisma MCA.

It is also a day when the 2378 Central Delegates begin to arrive and register. Registration begins at 3.30pm but many of the candidates' supporters were already there early.

The men in orange are volunteers who turned up to help Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat's campaign machinery. Some are strong supporters from the Facebook group.

It is interesting to note that there were volunteers who came from various States across the nation - Johor, Pahang, Perak, and KL.

A pat on the back to those men in orange who worked hard with only a bottle of water in hand to drive them on throughout the day.

Tee Keat's men troop on, regardless of the challenges they face or the arrogance and disrespect other candidates' machinery show to them.

I wish the President the best for tomorrow's Election Day. A vote for Tee Keat is a vote for transformation of MCA.

A PIECE OF MY MIND has been a supporter since the early days and will continue to support his vision regardless of the outcome tomorrow.

Supporters of Tee Keat, 28 March 2010 is a day when all of us wear orange regardless of where we are across the nation - be it at home, outdoors or at Wisma MCA !

The following are some pictures taken at Wisma MCA today.

Tee Keat's Election Campaign

  1. I apologize for not writing much on MCA recently as I was away for a short trip to Down Under. Moreover, I believe my previous two articles were good enough to tell all about MCA crisis and 2010 Party Elections.

  2. You can read them again - Ong Ka Ting's politics and Ong Tee Keat must win

  3. As for the recent polling results that Tee Keat is the favourite, I am skeptical. No doubt, I am a strong supporter of the incumbent President.

  4. But I am also one who likes to criticize the President and his team's strategies. This time, I think they made a disastrous move again.

  5. The election team were all on the right track. Until of course, a recent hyped up polling result by Merdeka Centre which favored Tee Keat.

  6. It was followed by an article that interpreted Tee Keat's comments that he is now the favorites, no longer the underdog.

  7. I wasn't quite happy to read that, to be honest.

  8. One must not be played by polling results and the favourites tag. Or else, one will lose the sympathy and fence sitter votes which are crucial in any election.

  9. Over confidence can push one over the cliff but humility will win the war. Take it as an advice from a political analyst, like it or not.

  10. Also, I proposed that Tee Keat should post recorded video messages online for the benefit of all as part of the election campaign. There are reasons to this.

  11. There are many delegates whom are controlled by warlords. Some of these delegates don't dare to attend Tee Keat's campaign meetings, luncheon or dinner.

  12. So they don't get to hear the President's words or election manifesto.

  13. The videos could have boosted his chances and all 2378 Delegates can hear his messages at their own time, privacy and pleasure.

  14. I didn't see any of the videos online but perhaps the President and his team are wiser than me.

  15. I can be the President's strongest supporter but I do not want to be a silent one or a yes man.

Ong Tee Keat must win

  1. In MCA Political Alliances, I said that if it is a 3 horse race for the Presidency, the winner will most probably receive only 40% of the Delegates votes while the remaining two could possibly get 30% each.

  2. In other words, the winner of the Presidential campaign will command only 40% of the delegates support and 60% of the Delegates don't think he is the right man. MCA crisis will possibly continue.

  3. Well, for MCA's sake, Tee Keat should be made President with 50% or more votes from the Delegates regardless of the number of Presidential candidates.

  4. Or MCA will be at the losing end. In my previous article, Ong Ka Ting's politics, I pointed out why Ong Ka Ting's faction won't bring any good to MCA.

  5. I also said that the Tee Keat-Ka Chuan combination is probable though not desirable. (Yes, I said this)

  6. Allow me to add more here. MCA knows they must reform after losing badly in March 2008. The Chinese community slapped and kicked MCA while shouting the words "Change your ways!".

  7. If the MCA Central Delegates choose to vote for Ong Ka Ting's faction to return to power, I don't see how such a decision reflect the calls by the Chinese community.

  8. The party will not be seen as changing their ways or reforming the Party's political structure if the Central Delegates choose to return to the old leadership's ways.

  9. DAP has presented themselves successfully as a Party represented by professionals and well educated youth. What do we have in MCA ? Old men, old methods and old mentality.

  10. So going back to the old ways, MCA will be on the path to the end of days. Choosing the old leadership will also see MCA being blasted from day to night by the Opposition with all sorts of issues.

  11. Then, we ask. What about Soi Lek ? Thus far, we know that the loyalists of Soi Lek are Loh Seng Kok and Tan Chai Ho.

  12. One of my buddies said correctly. Which political party in this world makes a man with a sex scandal the President of the Party ?

  13. Moreover, I believe Loh Seng Kok and Tan Chai Ho cannot be compared to the talented, young and eloquent leaders of DAP. And neither are they comparable to Ong Tee Keat's team.

  14. MCA must understand, we must not make the Party a laughing stock when we are constantly being compared with DAP's elected representatives. There must be some minimum standards and qualities to consider, no ?

  15. This leaves us with Ong Tee Keat. The incumbent President has managed to attract a string of well qualified loyalists and supporters. In fact, Ong Tee Keat commands the support from professionals whom are non members of MCA.

  16. Like it or not, the only solution MCA has is to see Tee Keat winning with more than 50% votes from the Central Delegates. All other solutions won't bring any good to the Party as pointed out in my article MCA Political Alliances.

  17. By the way, I heard that there is a faction leader going around campaigning against two relatively small but upcoming leaders of MCA : Datuk Ti Lian Ker and Senator Heng Seai Kie.

  18. My, my. Instead of explaining his faction's agenda, manifesto or what he can do for MCA, he chooses to tell people not to vote for Datuk Ti Lian Ker and Senator Heng Seai Kie regardless of which post they contest for.

  19. I am very interested to hear the reasons on why this faction leader dislikes one of MCA's vocal, direct, no-nonsense and uprising leader Datuk Ti Lian Ker as well as the nice and humble Senator.

  20. I welcome the announcement by Senator Heng Seai Kie to contest for a Central Committee position.

Ong Ka Ting's politics

  1. When Ong Ka Ting was President, the Presidential office was successful. The marketing boys branded the President as a Mr Nice Guy.

  2. We see in the papers day to day that Ong Ka Ting is close to the Chinese community and helped the people - be it in commerce or education.

  3. But Ong Ka Ting and Chan Kong Choy's era were not without controversies. Which Minister has ever handed over a Government Ministerial position to a kin ?

  4. And then, there were chatter on vice, phantom members, triads, money lending licences (Ah Longs), PKFZ and nepotism. Some of these issues are still haunting MCA today.

  5. When Ka Ting and Kong Choy stepped down with the Central Committee being their men, it is said that Tee Keat will be supported to be President while Ka Chuan will be the Deputy President.

  6. In other words, probably Tee Keat was to be a puppet President and allow Ka Chuan time to consolidate his position to takeover as President of MCA.

  7. Just like the plans in UMNO's triangle power transition of Mahathir - Abdullah - Najib. The only difference is this involves brotherhood and dynasty rule.

  8. The former leadership had many men in core MCA bureaus and committees including the Chinese dailies. Do I need to name them ?

  9. No MCA President has ever been attacked by the Chinese press with a vendetta and Tee Keat was the first. But things didn't go according to plan back in Oct 2008 and Ka Chuan lost to Soi Lek.

  10. Indeed, I cannot stop myself from thinking whether Chua Soi Lek was also played out when he announced his resignation as Deputy President recently.

  11. If the rumours are true that Liow Tiong Lai seconded a nomination form for Soi Lek to be President, then why are Ka Ting's men calling for the former President to make a return ?

  12. In fact, by now, 8 Johor Divisions have called for Ka Ting to return. And in December 2009, Soi Lek's Johor MCA meeting was attended by 13 out of 26 Johor MCA Division leaders only.

  13. Didn't Soi Lek sense something wrong was going on at his own home ground ?

  14. It is probable that Ka Ting's men have all along been using Tiong Lai as a tool to allow the top two titans Ong Tee Keat and Chua Soi Lek to clash. This is then followed up by the latest flowery words from MCA leaders to ask Ka Ting to return and "save MCA".

  15. Will Ka Ting really come out of retirement when Ka Chuan had just announced that he will be contesting on March 28 ? The whispers are getting louder that he is.

  16. But if you ask me, I think it is just another play.

  17. I believe Ong Ka Chuan is the man who will be the leader of Ong Ka Ting's faction. And in my previous post, I said that the Tee Keat-Ka Chuan combination is probable though not desirable.

  18. Oh my, I think I have written too much .... fiction. Ignore me :)

MCA : Political Alliances

MCA is in a mess. The political alignment ain't clear. Even if it is now, it might just be smokescreens. Let me share with you some insights of MCA.

1. Chua Soi Lek - Liow Tiong Lai

  • This alliance won't last. Liow Tiong Lai's support comes from the camps of Ong Ka Ting, Ong Ka Chuan, Wee Ka Siong and Chew Mei Fun.

  • But Dr Chua is still licking his wounds from the snoop squad case. Any such alliance will fail for sure.

  • Moreover, Chew Mei Fun was reported to have said that if Chua goes for the Presidency, she will quit. If they team up, both parties are expected to play each other out.

  • Soi Lek could possibly work with Ka Siong while collecting support from his loyalists like Tan Chai Ho and Loh Seng Kok.

2. Ong Tee Keat - Chua Soi Lek

  • By now, I doubt anyone in Tee Keat's camp will trust Soi Lek anymore.

  • I warned the leaders that we must not take Soi Lek's goodwill and support blindly as I don't trust him much even though he was a good Minister of Health.

  • In the end, my warning became a reality and Soi Lek turned the tables on Tee Keat's camp.

  • So, no doubt, the chances are not there for them to work together, regardless of Soi Lek's philosophy of "politics is about making the impossible possible".

3. Chua Soi Lek - Ong Ka Chuan

  • Soi Lek will say no to the Ong brothers.

  • Soi Lek's career was prematurely ended by the sex scandal and he was once accused of attempting to topple the then President Ong Ka Ting.

4. Ong Tee Keat - Ong Ka Chuan

  • This is actually possible. It was said that Ka Ting's men backed Tee Keat to be the President in Oct 2008.

  • The "chai dan" (menu) back then was for Tee Keat to be President and Ka Chuan to be Deputy President.

  • But Tee Keat will be at the losing end again if he teams up with Ong Ka Chuan.

  • The incumbent President risks losing his loyal supporters and could possibly be a puppet for Ong Ka Ting-Ong Ka Chuan's faction.
Thus, this leaves us with the final possibility of a 3 factions war with NO ALLIANCES.

5. Ong Tee Keat vs (either Ong Ka Ting or Ong Ka Chuan) vs Chua Soi Lek

  • If the Presidential contest sees 3 candidates, whoever the winner is won't have a strong grip of the Party either.

  • I foresee MCA to face the same problems as UMNO Youth now.

  • The winner will most probably receive only 40% of the Delegates votes while the remaining two could possibly get 30% each.

  • In other words, the winner of the Presidential campaign will command only 40% of the delegates support and 60% of the Delegates don't think he is the right man.

  • MCA crisis will possibly continue until the next MCA elections in 2011.

Next up, I will share with you on Ong Ka Ting's politics.

A complex MCA Crisis

The political analysts are saying different things. For instance

1. Tee Keat and Liow may team up again
2. Chua-Liow alliance to block Ong?
3. Three Blocs In MCA Fresh Polls?

Back in 2009, I was pro Ong Tee Keat and I also warned that we must not take Dr Chua Soi Lek's goodwill or support blindly.

In fact, I refused to shed off the possibility that Ong Ka Chuan is still a man who wields great influence in MCA.

Actually Tiong Lai is in a Catch-22 situation since his support base is mainly from Ong Ka Ting's men.
  1. He knows Dr Chua is still hunting for the people from the snoop squad case.
  2. And it ain't a secret that Ong Ka Ting's men aren't a fan of Dr Chua.
  3. Liow knows Dr Chua won't be sincere if they work together.
  4. Dr Chua knows Liow won't be sincere if they work together.
  5. Both know clearly well that their "marriage" most probably will fail if they team up in MCA.

I leave the rest for you to ponder. I might write up something once I see a clearer political alignment.

One article caught my attention. Okay for Tee Keat to defend post, says Mei Fun

"Asked whether she still maintains that if Chua is going for the No. 1 post she will quit her party post, Chew said she will provide an answer when "this thing really happens".

Oh my. Really, Datin Paduka said that before ?

Already, we know that the Wanita Chief and Pemuda MCA Chief refused to call for fresh elections in their own wings because they maintained that only the national body is embroiled in a leadership crisis.

Principles. I wonder if Dr Wee Ka Siong will attack Mei Fun and give her a lecture on "Principles" if Soi Lek actually contests to be President of MCA.

Fake MCA Facebook Fan Page

Right after the pro Tee Keat Facebook group was formed, I noticed something interesting. Newcomers to Facebook - Chua Soi Lek and MCA(Malaysian Chinese Association).

Whether or not Chua Soi Lek and his team manage the account or it is fake, I don't know. But I was overwhelmed with joy that MCA finally set up a Facebook Fan Page.

I thought that MCA can at last deliver and serve the people better, minus all the bureaucracy and hassle of visiting a service centre (which is closed most of the time in some area).

But I wasn't happy and wanted to blast MCA Infocom for an obvious error. Acronyms are meant to be in brackets, not the full name itself.

Until I checked one thing. The "NOTES" section. All the notes there are from Dr Chua Soi Lek's blog. I suspected something was wrong and immediately raised this matter yesterday morning.

Indeed I was right. MCA Infocom instantly clarified that the MCA(Malaysian Chinese Association) Fan Page is not managed by MCA HQ - thus a fake one !

Hmm. Dr Chua and his men has some explaining to do. Do I smell scents of arrogance in Chua's camp ? If it is the work of Dr Chua's supporters, then shame on you.

Don't use MCA's name as a machinery to promote one's agenda - especially a leader who is not even the President of MCA or an appointed spokesperson for the Party.

Chatter on MCA Crisis

Rockybru and Dnightcaller have listed down a clear cut and simple analysis on Tee Keat's position.

You can read the two articles :

1. Najib's headache, Tee Keat's heartache
2. Of MCA's presidential turmoil : My wish ...

Others have decided to use this opportunity to attack MCA and Ong Tee Keat as racists and conspirators with Gerakan and DAP on Chinese rights in Malaysia all these while.

Well, let me be honest with you. I have talked to MCA leaders as well as grassroots men. I can say that MCA has never conspired with Gerakan or DAP. I know this as a matter of fact.

Moreover, if we are conspirators with Gerakan or DAP, then MCA's Vice President would not have said "MCA will sink or swim with UMNO" in January 2009.

We won't slap ourselves in a time when the Chinese were already saying that MCA leaders are not fit to represent the community.

Thus, we are not conspiring with anyone but we work hand in hand with UMNO, MIC, Gerakan and other BN component parties to develop our beloved country.

Also, MCA has never blackmailed the BN leadership and neither is it true that Chinese will take over in the next election as warned by Perkasa.

What Dong Zong, Jiao Zong, Hua Zong and the ACCCIM demand is not the official stand by MCA at all. MCA merely facilitates and hand up the comments or suggestions to the Government when necessary.

But they do have their rights to voice out their inputs to the Government, just like how Perkasa, MPM, and others execute theirs.

In fact, recently, there were strong rumours that these Chinese NGOs are to replace MCA. Surely, it wasn't MCA's idea.

So please. Get the facts right first before pouring out the unfounded arguments. I do not wish to see baseless accusations being used to destroy the coalition's unity and to sink MCA.

We walk with you, Tee Keat

Dear readers of A PIECE OF MY MIND, do join us in our Facebook Group : You'll Never Walk Alone <> We Walk With You

The following is the information cum declaration of this group. I will blog more on MCA politics beginning from Tuesday as I am busy with other matters. Come back for more.

Members of the press can pick this up, if interested.


We are here to share our thoughts and ideas on the leadership of Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat as MCA President. Datuk Seri is a good leader who has never turned his head away from helping the Chinese Community and Malaysians. We do hope we can invite more people to join this Group and to give him our utmost support, vote of confidence and words of encouragement.

<< 人生没有多少个十年 ,华社没有多少个好领导者, 但愿我们可以一起为翁诗杰共勉之. 我相信我们可以一同凝聚最大的力量,谁知道在最后所有的中央代表都被我们的真诚所打动, 然后为翁诗杰打气.我相信公道旨在人心, 谁是真人,谁是为君子,到最后就得靠中央代表去决定 >>

We believe in DS OTK as he is a man who has the will, the courage and the ability to reform MCA. His principles are worthy of our respect. Practices of transparency, accountability and good governance have all the while been the core principles of DS OTK

Being handed down a Party in search of answers for political restructuring and survival in 2008, DS OTK created a new political brand for MCA. Vocal, reformist, courageous, no-nonsense and People First Performance Now. He wants to change the party to be more transparent, accountable and to place importance in the people above all else.

Namely, the independent audit report on PKFZ and the cancellation of support letters for bidders or lobbyists for all government tenders, be it those called by the Transport Ministry or other ministries. At the Party level, DS OTK worked on Direct Party Elections system to make the voting process in MCA more democratic via a larger decision maker platform.

Sadly, being vocal, courageous and direct do not bode well with many in the Party. Somehow, opportunists are not willing to support the new brand of MCA politics due to their stakes in businesses which have long been associated with MCA. Party Elders and warlords are not willing to allow such change to happen simply because they are not willing to let go their authority. Yet, they speak of reforms and the need to engage the youth.

MCA must now decide. Whether to choose the person who walks the talk courageously and charismatically or to choose to return to the old ways while hiding behind veiled words of reform. We believe, as a matter of fact, DS OTK is the window of hope and opportunity for MCA to move forward with the Chinese community and to meet challenges in the new millenium.

We need a strong and determined leader to reform and develop our country while acknowledging and preserving the fundamental rights and opportunities of the Malaysian Chinese community.

It is time for us to speak out loud and make ourselves heard. We need Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat to lead the Malaysian Chinese Association and to ensure the success of the community, the Party and the nation as a whole.

Datuk Seri, we have nothing to offer, but words of encouragement that you are not alone. You have us and we walk down the challenging path with you, Datuk Seri. For MCA !

《〈 人生没有多少个十年 ,华社没有多少个好领导者, 但愿我们可以一起为翁诗杰共勉之.
我相信我们可以一同凝聚最大的力量,谁知道在最后所有的中央代表都被我们的真诚所打动, 然后为翁诗杰打气.我相信公道旨在人心, 谁是真人,谁是为君子,到最后就得靠中央代表区决定〉〉

I have nothing to be offered, but blood, toil, tears and sweat... Whatever you have thought, there is a must to bear in mind that we must succeed in life...

WE WALK WITH Dato Seri Ong Tee Keat, 让我们一起与翁诗杰一起奋斗吧 。。。。

MCA : Greater Unity Plan failed

Today, Dr Chua Soi Lek announced his resignation as MCA Deputy President. Together with this, 7 of his ardent supporters in the Central Committee resigned as well.

The total number of resignations in Wong Foon Meng's hands are 21 which is the minimum number of resignations needed to call for fresh party polls.

Back in December 2009, I sounded the warning bells and dropped hints in my blog articles. I raised concerns about Dr Chua Soi Lek's style in party politics.

Also, I sent some private messages in text form in the middle of Dec 2009 regarding the party politics played by certain leaders and what could be the results of those moves back then.

I was skeptical and doubted the sincerity of Dr Chua Soi Lek & Co. privately. Though he gave his support for the GUP and to the Presidential team, I was wary.

My words were clear when I raised my concerns and I did not mince a single word. "We must not take Dr Chua's goodwill and support blindly".

I await to see the next course of action that will be taken. I said it before and I will say it again. I have full confidence and faith in Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat to lead MCA.

Win or lose, I walk with Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat till the end for the good things he did for us and for the hope he gave us Malaysians.

  • tennis partner of Anwar
  • once said that Anwar received RM 60 mil of Magnum money from him
  • former Kepong PKR Chief
  • quit PKR in 2007, formed MIUP

ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES who quit the Party (since 2008)

  1. Jamaluddin Mat Radzi - ADUN PKR Perak (Feb 2009)
  2. Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu - ADUN PKR Perak (Feb 2009)
  3. Hee Yit Foong - ADUN DAP Perak (Feb 2009)

  8. Mohd Fairus Khairuddin - Former Penang Deputy Chief Minister (March 2010)
  9. Tan Tee Beng - MP PKR Nibong Tebal (March 2010)
  10. Mohsin Fadzli Samsuri - MP PKR Bagan Serai (March 2010)

Did I miss out anyone ? Drop me a message, I will add to the list.

Of course, after Pakatan Rakyat leaders exit their component parties, all sorts of accusations will be thrown at them by Pakatan Rakyat leaders :
  • they are frogs
  • they were being bought
  • they were under performing representatives/leaders
  • they are unqualified representatives with no standards
  • they are BN agents

If a Pakatan Rakyat leader speaks out against the leadership, the leaders will attack and label the critics as BN agents planted in the party. Then, they will be told to be a man and quit the Party.

After a Pakatan Rakyat leader quits the Party, they will be thrown with allegations and will be labeled as poor performance leaders and frogs who have been bought with money.

The script circulates along these lines ONLY when Pakatan leaders speak out against the Party AND when Pakatan leaders quit the Party.

The script is getting boring and lamer by day. Anything new ? PR must come to their senses. It is just like the 308 tsunami.

People voted for PR not because PR is holier than thou or their leaders are more qualified. People supported PR because BN weren't doing a good job and have many problems.

The same applies in the exodus of PR representatives, leaders and members from PR. They resigned mainly because of their unhappiness of the leadership in PR.

Instead of reviewing their policies and stand, the PR leaders slam these people as frogs. I urge Anwar Ibrahim, Lim Kit Siang and Nik Aziz to tell all on :
  1. who among the CURRENT leaders and elected representatives are LOW QUALITY and won't be selected for the next election

  2. who among the CURRENT leaders and elected representatives have scandals linked to them - from the Free Anwar Campaign days onwards till today.

Anwar should also stop saying that
those who quit PKR played the Malay and Islamic card. This will create an impression among the non Malays and moderate Malays that PKR is a fighter for all.

Back in November 2008, there was an article : Anwar - Pakatan committed to ensuring Malay rights
For the sake of the people, don't mislead the people and do tell us all.

Treachery in MCA (2)

This is Part 2. In the previous article, I highlighted one important point.

Several meetings were organized and held. These meetings were to discuss and collude on who to fill the "vacancies" before the Central Committee even met to discuss the results of the 10-10-10 EGM and produce a solution.

There were NO CALLS from the "cartel" back then for fresh elections to determine who to fill those "vacancies" either.

They colluded among themselves and coaxed others to force the constitutional President and Deputy President to step down.

But today, they act like righteous proponents of democracy by saying it is a "FAIR REQUEST" to call for fresh elections to determine MCA's leadership.

MCA Central Committee members and legal advisers warned that any fresh election can only be held if 21 CC members resigned.

Thus far, only 13 tendered their undated resignation and the fresh election cannot be held based on the Constitution.

Naturally, the 3rd force who cannot get their wishes fulfilled continue to claim that the Party is in crisis and that the Central Committee members must pave the way for fresh election.

Well, I cannot stop but wonder why Tiong Lai didn't follow Soi Lek's footsteps. When Soi Lek wanted his suspension from MCA overturned, he went all over the country to get signatures and requisitioned for an EGM.

Based on the MCA Constitution, ONE THIRD signatures from Central Delegates are necessary to requisition for an EGM.

Tiong Lai claims he has the support of 1200 Central Delegates. Then why didn't he, Mei Fun and Ka Siong use the same method as Dr Chua ? I am curious.

As time goes by, we can only deduce that the support of 1200 Central Delegates is A BLUFF.

Clearly, Tee Keat and Soi Lek's men said okay to fresh polls during closed door negotiations to solve the MCA crisis.

Datuk Ti Lian Ker then said that if fresh election is the way, then have it at all levels in MCA.

In addition, Tee Keat and Soi Lek's supporters highlighted that if we go for fresh elections now, we still have to go for Party Elections in 2011, thus rendering the 2010 Fresh Election pointless.

But problems arise when the 3rd force leaders said there is NO NEED to reelect the MCA Youth Chief and Wanita MCA Chief positions and they want the fresh elections to be held as soon as possible.

And Dr Wee Ka Siong had the guts to scoff at Datuk Ti Lian Ker's recent comments that the resolutions for MCA's Annual General Meeting in March are unconstitutional.

Dr Wee said, "My response? I laugh. This entire issue here is a matter of principle — we are not here to fight but as a politician, we need to have guiding principles. If upholding our principles is construed as a wrongdoing then... I laugh." (The Malaysian Insider)

When some cannot argue based on the Constitution which is the highest order in the Party, they throw in lectures on Principles.
