As reported by Malaysiakini:-
Chua Jui Meng speaking at a dinner in Bukit Mertajam last night said:
…it was unprecedented for Umno leaders to just stand by and watch a defenceless Ong Tee Keat being subject to mounting attacks and pressure by his detractors over his handling of the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal .
Punished for exposing truth
“Ong is the president of the second largest BN component party and no one from Umno is protecting him.
“I find it strange,” said Chua, who lost is challenge for the MCA presidency to Ong in the party elections last October.
MCA president Ong is already facing a suit by Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd’s (KDSB) chief executive officer and Bintulu parliamentarian Tiong King Sing over his outspoken and transparent handling of the PKFZ issue.
I must declare, that for the first time in a very long time, MCA is demonstrating its will to try to clean itself up.
And yet, beyond the cursory noises made by its central delegates, the support for reform is very deafeningly silent from its 1 million layman members who:
– wear MCA name in their business networking,
– have benefited from MCA’s China network,
– have benefited from MCA’s Taiwan network,
– claim to want a more meritorious politics,
– claim to speak out on behalf of Chinese community,
– claim to want to save MCA
Isn’t it true that Chinese values balance in the environment for a harmonious living and business?
What are you going to do now to ensure MCA stays on to balance UMNO’s presence in BN?
Would you muster up your values of 5,000 years to courageously speak up for your party’s attempt to redeem itself so that it can finally become a political party with substance?
Can you stand up to voice support for MCA reform. Or are you going to run away as usual? Or opt to take refuge with the Pakatan Rakyat and make PR so strong that it replaces UMNO to become the next lord of Malaysia?
Sheesh…. do something quick to help your MCA, if you want to see a 2 party system flourish in Malaysia.
MCA members and MCA bloggers, Malaysians are all watching your next moves.
Saving individuals like the stubborn Ong Tee Keat or the tainted Chua Soi Lek should never be more important than saving your party MCA. Choose wisely with an eye on your community’s future.
