MCA ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING FIXED ON 5 DECEMBER 2009
MCA President Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat informed that the MCA will hold its Annual General Meeting on 5 December 2009. The AGM was initially fixed in October but was deferred to make way for the crucial EGM on 10 October.
The opposing fraction have also summoned an EGM, a second one after 10 October, on 28 November which is let by purported Deputy President and elected Vice President Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai seeking to receive a mandate to call for fresh elections or to accept the decision arrived at the first CC Meeting held after the 10 October EGM, which had appointed Datuk Seri Liow as its Deputy, replacing Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek. The Registrar of Societies had recently sent a letter to MCA claiming that Datuk Seri Dr Chua is still the legitimate Deputy President, leaving Datuk Seri Liow in a limbo.
Whatever the circumstances, MCA members need to realise that these internal problems is belittling the credibility of the Chinese community in Malaysia and that of MCA which is regarded as the second largest political force in Malaysia and its prolong situation will further affect the well-being of the Chinese community in Malaysia.
There are reports that once allied supporter Datuk Seri Liow will also be accomodated in the Presidents Greater Unity Plan (GUP) but it seems that Datuk Seri Liow and his group want a better stake, which will see a fallout and spilt in the MCA.
It is observed that the only solution would be to have FRESH LEADERSHIP POLLS and this must be done as soon as possible.
