Ong Tee Keat quits MCA, but stays coy on reasons
Former transport minister Ong Tee Keat has quit MCA, after more than 30 years as a member and having served as its eighth president.
In a text message to Malaysiakini, Ong confirmed his resignation, which was first reported by China Press.
However, Ong remained coy on the reasons behind his decision and said he did not even make any announcement on the matter.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
