Invincible MCA?

The cheating charges brought against Chan Kong Choy (and Ling Liong Sik) will have no impact on MCA, its party president Dr Chua Soi Lek proclaimed.

Dr Chua’s remarks come as Chan, also a former transport minister from MCA, was charged today with three counts of cheating over the scandal-hit PKFZ trans-shipment hub project and faces up to five years’ jail for each count.

Chan pleaded not guilty on all counts.

Dr Ling, a former MCA president, was also charged on July 29, 2010 of knowingly deceiving the Cabinet to approve a land purchase for PKFZ, which resulted in wrongful losses for the government.

"Anybody who has committed an offence, they should face the music.” He added that the charges showed the government is serious about good governance.

Soi Lek must be politically naive to claim that there is no impact on MCA. This is perhaps the most tumultuous period for the party. Ling and Chan were the top leaders of MCA. It is irresponsible and insensitive to suggest that their prosecutions do not affect the party. Both of them were nominated by the party to helm the transport minister position.

What Soi Lek must do is to order the current transport minister, Kong Cho Ha, to clean up the PKFZ mess. I am sure he knows that Kong has been criticized for doing the exact opposite by refusing to renew the tenure of a few independent directors.

MCA, to be relevant, must own up to the mess and alleged wrongdoings of both Ling and Chan. If the government is as serious about good governance as claimed by Chua the position of transport minister should not have been given to a MCA nominee.

A new transport minister from another component party would be more proper and suitable to continue with the probe on irregularities. A non-MCA transport minister could act more impartially and not try to protect former comrades and party members.

Chua's claim of good governance is a long shot. MCA's leadership crisis and credibility deficit is at its worst in the party's 62 years history.

I would be surprised if he claims that the Chinese voters have returned to the party. Return for what? To join in the current circus act in the party?

Only the porn artists themselves believe in the MCA cheat, he had no answers whenever he got a lesson from Umno or most recently from the DPM. This running dog is no better than all the MCA leaders before him.
They don't represent the Chinese Malaysians well on the contrary he is a bloody disgrace and he still has hopes to place his good for nothing son to become a minister someday. Just a typical example of a Malaysian politician, always a good porn artist and a corrupted running dog like all the MCA leaders before him. Now you know why the real Chinese Malaysians are not with him.

Well, Chua Soi Lek could be telling the truth after all. Seriously what else can impact MCA anymore? Ask ANY Chinese, maybe with the exception of self-interested MCA leadership, you can see for yourself whether NCA is still relevant.

Chua Soi Lek could be telling the truth after all. Seriously can there be ANYTHING left that will impact MCA? If you have to subcontract your fight (whatever that is) to 1Malaysia NGO, I really don't see any relevance of MCA save to "protect" the self-interests of selected leader, among whom CSL is definitely one!

My father only told me that MCA stands for 'Marr Wah Koung Woeu'. (Literally, its means Malayan Chinese Association.) However, he was also quick to point out it could be could also mean 'Maei Wah Koung Woeu' which means 'Selling-out the Chinese Society' which presently sounds much more appropriate.
