Malaysia Chinese Association - MCA
Incumbent President

New Deputy President

Are there permanent and sincere friends in politics? Is forcing Ong to step down is the only way to solve MCA’s crisis? Are the Central Committee (CC) members sincere in what they have done or they did it just for their personal interest? Is Liow a truly MCA’s guy or only a person of himself? There seems to be no sincerity in politics. Only interest will prevail.

The EGM’s result really gives me a shock. Don’t expect the result to be that way. The first motion of no confidence towards Ong has been passed by a margin of 14 votes (1155 against 1141). The second motion to cancel off decision made by Presidential Council has been passed with 1204 votes against 1095. While the third motion which is about the restoration of Chua as deputy president has failed 1110 votes supporting it and 1184 going against it.

The main question becoming out next will be: who is the next MCA President? Will Ong resign as what he has promised even though MCA Constitution doesn’t require him to do so?

MCA DEPUTY PRESIDENT (before he is being suspended), DATUK SERI DR. CHUA SOI LEK

Initially, it is about whether Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat, Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek or both will stay as MCA’s leaders. For me, the best result that can accommodate both leaders is that the motion of no confidence towards president will fail while the motion to reinstate Dr. Chua as deputy president will succeed. This might be the best solution to accommodate both leaders but it is not a best solution to solve MCA’s crisis.

The courage of Ong to gamble the biggest bet in his political career might solve the MCA’s long term crisis. Ong will voluntarily step down as party’s president if his deputy is being reinstated. So now, the delegates can only choose either one of them. For me, this do-or-die gambling game put forward by Ong will increase his chance of winning, but at the same time, if he were to lose, he is going to lose everything and his political career will end there.

Anyhow, I personally feel that Ong will win in this fight. It is not that hard to accept a scandal tainted deputy president, but when it comes to presidency, a lot of issues will be taken into account. Sex scandal in Malaysia is still a very big taboo. The mentality of Malaysian Chinese is still not yet up to the level of acceptance towards sex scandal.

PAS (left) and BN (right) candidates

It is a fight between Tan Sri Mohd Isa Samad (BN) and Zulkefly Mohd Omar (PAS). 13, 664 voters are eligible to vote. If this seat goes to BN, it means that BN is still strong is its area and Isa’s influence is still there. He still has chance to revive his political career. However, if the seat goes to PAS, it shows that political tsunami has not ended yet. This is one of the interesting by-elections as the incumbent for this seat is BN. My prediction is that the seat will go to BN. Majority does not really important in this by-election unless the margin is too small or too big like what happen is Manek Urai.
