Najib in quandary over Soi Lek's victory
'Umno, how can you continuously accuse Anwar of having unnatural sex when the leader of your component party has done the same thing?'
Lim Chong Leong: How long will this marriage of convenience last? I already see the two brothers - Ong Ka Ting and Ong Ka Chuan - sharpening their knives for Brutus' (Liow) second attack. And Wanita chief Chew Mei Fun said she'll quit if Chua Soi Lek wins, how now?
Geronimo : I am glad, so very glad that Chua Soi Lek won the presidency. So Umno, remember the saying ‘Those who stay in glass houses should not throw stones'? How can you continuously accuse Anwar of having unnatural sex when the leader of your component party has done the same thing?
If Prime Minister Najib Razak accommodates a person tainted with adulterous and unnatural sex behaviour (though not sodomy), then it goes to show that the case against Anwar is nothing more than a political persecution.
Gk: If the majority of MCA members want it that way, who can say no? Let them be, and the results confirmed what type of people MCA members are. I am not at all interested in what they are. To me, they are only relevant to Umno, not to the rakyat . This also confirmed MCA can neither be reformed or changed, just like its big brother.
Multi racial: MCA has decided loud and clear. The delegates have voted against reform and for low moral values. Now it is time for Malaysians to take MCA out of politics for good. We shall vote every MCA candidate out in the next election.
Aramsa: The MCA delegates who voted surely are the ones who determine whether MCA is or is not out of the wood. By electing CSL (Chua Soi Lek) as president, they at the same time rejected Kong Chor Ha, supposedly CSL's running mate.
By putting LTL (Liow Tiong Lai) as CSL's deputy the MCA is in for another few years, if not months, of back stabbing. Is this what the MCA delegates want? I guess it is, because then the MCA will continue to have Team A and Team B pitting against each other. Perhaps, the delegates do not want absolute control by the top leadership as absolute power may corrupt absolutely.
Now, the writer is saying Najib will be in a dilemma whether or not the new MCA boss should be included in the cabinet. Well, This is the least of the problem. The PM himself is tainted with all sorts of scandals and he remains PM, therefore why not CSL. In other words, you ain't see nothing yet.
Disgusted: MCA has lost all credibility. Like Umno, both its top leaders are very tainted when compared to Anwar Ibrahim and the obvious choice of the rakyat will be Pakatan and Anwar. We'll see in the Hulu Selangor by-elections what the result will be. The rakyat will deliver the verdict.
Kgen: The election of Chua as MCA president against the wishes of the Chinese community confirms how out of sync the party is with the community. Bad for MCA, good for Pakatan.
One hand cover the sky: Well, it's time to say goodbye to the PKFZ (Port Klang Free Zone) scandal. It will be buried forever, no more witch hunting and those big fishes will no longer have to live in fear again.
Wira: This is the worst possible result for MCA and the best for Pakatan. Chua's moral values will once again be under scrutiny. The MCA delegates completely ignored the popular opinion of the rakyat and the party will certainly pay a price for that.
Long arm: With the exception of those standing for elections and their backers, everyone else is a loser, and yet you have losers voted in as winners. What a scenario, only to be found in gutter politics BN-style, made in Malaysia.
POHLIS: What an opportune period for Chew Mei Fun to make life hell for the ‘porno star'. All of Malaysia, half of MCA and probably the rest of the world will have a gala time ridiculing Chua, MCA and BN. MCA delegates finally pressed the self destruct button.
Harry Koay: I suggest Tee Keat should follow the foot steps of former MCA vice-president Chua Jui Meng and join PKR for the sake of coming out from the shackles of BN. The non-voting delegates will definitely vote you in as PKR MP should you stand for the 13th general elections.
Your loss this time around could be a blessing in disguise. Good luck to the new captain and crew of the imminent sinking ship.
Cala: Now that they are exposed, MCA deputy president Liow Tiong Lai and his faction is no longer a third force. They are a new force to be reckoned with. They are the second force, capable of contending for leadership in the next election.
Gem: Get ready for Chua versus Liow.
