MCA to be wiped out in S’gor in GE 13

By Lee Kee

Like Umno, MCA cannot change for the better to serve the rakyat (people).

I was amused because it displays the MCA leadership’s continuous selfish and arrogant attitude – only “our agenda”, irrespective of party interest or the Chinese community.

The leadership’s sole concern in decision-making has always been to protect the interest of the party warlords, thereby leading to serious infighting. There is no room for those outside their circle. Capability is not a factor, neither the interest of constituents.

Like Umno, MCA cannot change for the better to serve the rakyat (people).

I was also amused because this will signal the end of Selangor MCA in the next general election. In the 2008 General Election or more popularly referred to as the 2008 political tsunami, both the Ongs (Ong Tee Keat and Ong Ka Chuan) survived.

Tee Keat was the only MCA MP (Pandan) left standing in Selangor. With the MCA leadership’s continuous refusal to reform and start making decisions in the interest of the party and constituents based on meritocracy, the party is expected to make history for itself in Selangor – that is failing to win a single parliamentary seat in the state.

Given MCA and its leadership’s current continuous deteriorating performance, especially its porno-president Dr Chua Soi Lek and his bumbling deputy Liow Tiong Lai’s defence of the police attack on Tung Shin Hospital in Bersih 2.0, one wonders when the party leaders will realise they have reached rock bottom in political support from the rakyat. To them, it appears to be a bottomless pit, so to speak.

It also clearly mocks Barisan Nasional (BN) and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s “only winnable candidates” will be fielded in the next general election.
By that, we expect Najib to field not only winnable candidates, but also capable and respectable candidates who can really serve their constituents.

They must be candidates with a reasonable proven track record or someone with professional or academic achievements to command the confidence of the rakyat.

We don’t need a rocket scientist to tell us who these candidates are because common sense will tell you that the majority (repeat majority) of those who survived the political tsunami are likely to be politicians who command some level of confidence.

What more, both Tee Keat and Ka Chuan (Tanjung Malim) have proven track records.

Instead, the MCA warlord leadership has ignored the public’s cry for quality leaders and chose to nominate 2008 and past rejects. The party leadership is consciously losing touch with the rakyat.

The Chinese adage, Bu Jian Guan Cai Bu Luo Lei (Only the sight of a coffin will you know the meaning of death) most aptly describes the current MCA members and leaders.

Most unfortunately and foolishly, MCA leaders are prepared to even venture beyond the bottomless pit, as displayed by their current political attitude in Penang, despite a whitewash in 2008.
