MCA President Ong Tee Keat is well respected as a principled man. During the last party election, Ong was critical of leaders who have no moral standing. He was against leaders with sex scandals seeking public office. I supported his stand and opined that MCA needed a leader with high moral standing to chart a return of the party.
Hence, I would like to advise Ong to reconsider his full support to the formation of the new Perak Government through the most despicable and undemocratic way. Morality has a standard and it must be applied consistently.
Ong added, “This is a very good development. The people of Perak, by large, yearn for a change for betterment and good governance." Fair enough, but don't he think the best way is to ask the people themselves? Why speak for them? In a healthy democracy, we should let the people voices be heard. That is why a general election is held every five years to measure their voices.
Since the March 8 general election, there is no clear indication that Chinese support has returned to MCA and this stand will not encourage any more gains in the future.
I understand Ong has to be a good team player but it is important to observe fair play. I criticised Anwar's intention in the past and I will continue to speak out against any illegal intrusions of our democracy. This is the responsibility of every citizen.
