MCA CRISIS DEEPENS - LIOW'S GROUP TO HOLD EGM ON 28 NOVEMBER
MCA crisis takes another problematic stage, this time its purported acting Deputy President (previously Vice President) Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai has summoned for the EGM to decide whether a fresh elections need to be called or to adhere to the CC Meeting decisions after the recent EGM.
The CC Meeting after the recent EGM had appointed Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai as the Deputy to replace Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek who had lost his position but the recent decision of the Registrar of Societies (ROS) had reinstated Datuk Seri Dr Chua as still the legitimate Deputy President whereby creating a limbo to the already problematic situation.
Since the decision of ROS, the dissatisfied Datuk Seri Liow had threaten to sue the ROS against their decision. In the meanwhile the Federal government had catagorically insisted that it will fully abide by the ROS decision which had taken into account after looking at the Societies Act and MCA Constitution.
Today decision by Datuk Seri Liow s group to call for the EGM seems to create a limbo since the MCA and its President are working very hard to implement the Greater Unity Plan (GUP) which will see MCA recovering from its current leadership crisis.
Like what many observers have noted that the only manner the MCA can resolve this crisis is to immediately call for a fresh leadership elections giving every fraction an opportunity to participate and challenge.
MCA is the second largest political party in Malaysia and a component party of BN which rules Malaysia.
