Present MCA leadership turmoils have never failed to make newspaper headlines. The fight has never failed to shock both MCA members and the Malaysian public with
new turn of dramatic events .
The latest was the reinstatement of Chua Soi Lek as its Deputy President at its yesterday's Central Committee meeting and the sacking of 4 co-opted Central Committee members by its President Ong Tee Keat hours before the meeting started. .
The decision by the Registrar of Societies to confirm that Chua is still he Deputy President just hours before yesterday's MCA Central Committee meeting was a real shocker. Why this new decision and why was it made just before the crucial MCA Central Committee meeting?
The Home Minister Datuk Hishammuddin certainly owes the public and MCA members an explanation.
The MCA internal turmoil has started with the Ong and Chua factions fighting against each other , following Chua"s expulsion from the party. It has now developed into three factions , with Liow Tiong Lai being the head of another group. Many people have therefore described the present MCA leadership tussle as similar to " Era of the Three Kingdoms"- an era of turbulent years in Chinese history.
Immediately after the October 10 MCA Extraordinary General Assembly ,Prime Minster Datuk Seri Najib commented that the MCA Central Committee must resolve its problem in a way which was legally correct, morally and political acceptable when it was still uncertain then whether Ong Tee Keat would resign his president's post.
Ong Tee Keat has publicly said that his present great unity plan to resolve MCA crisis has the blessings of the Prime Minister. So the question that Najib should answer is whether the unity plan is legally correct, morally and politically acceptable?
Has he become so impatient to see MCA crisis resolved that he has dropped his earlier demand that a MCA solution must meet the three factors of " legally correct, morally and politically acceptable?
