Ong Tee Keat offer his candidacy for President?

Go on.

Dare you to.

Call for MCA election for President and Deputy President posts.

Shut up the vulture factions once and for all.

Nothing to lose.

You didn’t sabotage MCA party constitution.

Members who are sidelined by central delegates appointees by vulture factions will respect you more. Maybe you can stop MCA members from leaving the party en masse at the same time.

Pakatan Rakyat is waiting, no, salivating for you to join them quick if the vulture factions conspire to boot you out.

Recount on vote of confidence for President at MCA EGM !

Woah! Surprise from Wisma MCA, Jalan Ampang…

Malaysian Mirror says:

“3.22pm It has been announced that there is only one percent difference in the votes on the first resolution – the motion of no-confidence against the president. A recount has been called.

One percent of 2,304 votes means a difference of 23-24 votes.

Votes on the other two resolutions are confirmed okay, meaning that there is at least a two percent difference.”

Looks like Malaysia Cinta Party will have many, many, many new members very, very soon…!!

MCA Boleh! Barisan Nasional Boleh!

For the sake of Jogoya: What I’ll say if I were the MCA President…

Yesterday, over some nice cool beers at our usual local coffee shop haunt, a friend issued me this challenge:

“If you were the MCA President, what will you say to motivate the lazy MCA central delegates‘ brains to work overtime before the D-day this Saturday at MCA’s EGM?”

What a horrible task…. and I was to respond convincingly to the friend by Friday. If I lose this wager, not only I will suffer the indignity of losing me Chinese ‘face‘, my wallet will also stand to lose 5 rounds of free meals at Jogoya.

!!!

For the sake of Jogoya, here is myself speaking as Ong Tee Keat’s alter ego…

Party members and fellow comrades,

Our party’s EGM starts this weekend. It’s going to be the most decisive and exciting for years.

This week, we won’t be playing it safe – instead we continue to soldier on with bold reform plans to deal with the big problems the party faces.

Many political parties spent their conference talking only to themselves – not the country, even after defeats suffered in the 2008 General Elections.

In contrast, under my leadership, you will see an MCA united, determined and ready to deliver the bold, tough and radical change our members and community demands.

At this EGM we will show that we are the party of new ideas and new opportunities.

To deal with the next General Election, we are already setting out some of the tough decisions that need to be taken and unlike previously predicted by naysayers, we won’t duck them this time.

To give people hope for the future of the party, MCA is already forging ahead in the direction of political, economics and race relations, and our EGM will show how we’re ready to strengthen our commitment to that change.

There is absolutely no room for complacency this time.

Every member of the Malaysian Chinese Association needs to remember the following: the party have never face a General Election from a starting point as difficult as we face now.

To win a majority, we must hold every seat we won in 2008 plus regain the lost constituencies.

We can do it: but we are going to have to work incredibly hard for every vote, every day between now and polling day. In the 13th General Election, every vote will count.

This weekend we will hear the results of the referendum in MCA’s future.

I have said repeatedly that I want us to have a party reform. I want to make one thing clear: there will be no change in our drive on party reform.

If the party reform is not ratified in this EGM and not in force when the election is held, in the next General Election campaign, we cannot convince the people for a ‘Yes’ vote.

This EGM is going to be a turning point for MCA as a credible, political party in Malaysia.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the MCA EGM.

Thanks to this guy for the very useful content frame.

Jogoya, here I come??

Rise of the SDs… Let the third man speak?

Commenting on the case of the statutory declaration made by private investigator P. Balasubramaniam linking Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak with Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, Bar Council president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan said the statutory declaration was made in accordance with the procedure and sealed by a Commissioner of Oaths.

“A statutory declaration is a document that contains evidence given on oath. It is sworn before a commissioner for oaths. As in the case of all evidence given under oath, it cannot be withdrawn,” she said.

Ah… me just experienced a nostalgic moment re-living the Malaysia’s famous statutory declaration.

Nostalgic moment is re-lived again when I read Raja Petra‘s article from Malaysia-Today:

Did he or didn’t he? Let the third man speak

“Did the MCA president, Ong Tee Keat, receive RM10 million in cash from Kuala Dimensi’s Tiong King Sing? Ong says noTiong says yes. That means we need a third person to tell us which of the two is telling the truth. And that third person should be the one who packed the money and acted as the courier between the two.”

And so, we readers were regaled with a copy of a sworn statement by Tiong’s dutiful assistant, an Encik Azman Bin Abdul Rahman, who works in Tiong’s Political Department in Kuala Lumpur and Sarawak.

My impression was here’s a very time wasting effort. Why did the dude make a sworn statement in front of a lawyer?

Why did he not make a stab directly at the heart of the matter by making a real Statutory Declaration in front of a Commissioner of Oath? Does Tiong needs a strong collaborator for his Kuala Dimensi SB case, or doesn’t he?

Bloodhound, a commentator at Malaysia-Today made an astute observation:

Bloodhound, September 09, 2009 01:06:23

“This third party’s sworn statement may not be as concrete as made out to be especially if the person is still under the employment of Tiong King Sing because we all know that there is not much a BN warlord cannot do that law enforcers will not look the other way especially those with deep pockets.

An independent third party’s statement will be a better and more meaningful declaration.

Moreover, the sworn statement is dated 22nd August 2009 which means that it just recently signed which merely signifies that Tiong King Sing is pulling out all stops in order to pin the charge against Ong.

Probably, the person is told by his employer to make the statement in order to lend support to their effort to incriminate Ong or to damage his reputation. Employees of an interested party do not really provide strong support in tandem with their employer’s claims.

Now, regardless whether the events did or did not happen at all, the damage is already done and they are going for the jugular. Let’s see what Ong can come up with to counteract the claims.”

BananaC did some research and came up with some findings and… drumroll… ta da!…..

Under the ACT 13 STATUTORY DECLARATIONS ACT 1960 (REVISED – 1969), it must be signed before a Sessions Court Judge, Magistrate or Commissioner for Oaths (which it was not in this case, as it was signed in front of an advocate and solicitor).

Somemore, there’s a standard format for SD.

This “Witness Statement” ‘tak power’ lar.

Let’s hope Ali, Ah Chong and Muthu are not confusing this “Witness statement” as the sexy Statutory Declaration.

Tsk….tsk….tsk…

Omitofu Amitabha “Four Noble Truths” campaigns to save Chua Soi Lek

Somebody forwarded this oldie but golden bit to me email.

Read it to check credibility of this Datuk who is now the chief campaign manager for Dr. Chua Soi Lek’s return to MCA + toppling MCA President Ong Tee Keat via a secret EGM proposals. Hmmmm… I wonder if Theng Bok is happy to share the limelight as co-campaign manager for SAVE Chua Soi Lek, ooops, SAVE MCA campaign?

Questions to Dr. Chua Soi Lek:

1. Couldn’t you fill your team with better and fresher faces and talents?
2. Why are all your campaigners has beens and/or losers in the people’s hands at 308’s 12th General Elections or those cannot work well with brothers in UMNO?

Why?

Why?

Why, indeed?

The sooner MCA is dismantled, the better. It has existed solely to make money from its presence in the government. Take the community hall built by the dbkl. It has 3 table tennis tables donated by well wishers. mca members took over the place under the infamous greedy tan chai ho and charge RM 50.00 entrance fee and monthly RM 10.00 for those who want to play. See, mca try to make money from every opportunity even over facilities that don’t belong to them. Also in OUG where the charge is RM 72.00 to join and RM 12.00 monthly by an mca gangster named loong peng sum. Could the new elected representatives help dislodge the mca and return the community halls to the people.
