MCA LEADERSHIP CRISIS - OUTCOME STILL GLOOMY
The Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) is still a long way to resolve its internal leadership crisis. But one matter that need to be appreciated is the bold stand taken by the delegates during the recent EGM and the current efforts by the MCA President Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat in resorting to end his feud with Deputy President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek with his Greater Unity Plan.
During the end of the recent CC meeting and to observe both these leaders together, gives MCA and the Chinese community a greater sense that misunderstandings will create greater problems not only to the Chinese but to the whole nation since MCA is the second largest partner of the ruling coalition and to the success of the 1 Malaysia concept.
Although a settlement is still a distance away, it is really hoped that MCA members will give greater emphasis to this Greater Unity Plan for the progress and well-being and survival of the Chinese community in Malaysia.
Most observers feel a fresh elections will resolve this crisis could be true but to spend this huge amount during this crucial economic downturn would be waste and that is why the Greater Unity Plan would be the best option to resolve this leadership crisis.
It was further reported that 27 out of 43 CC members had agreed to the Unity Plan and with this big support, MCA should immediately resolve its leadership crisis.
