Puppet masters behind MCA resignations?

DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang has claimed that hidden hands are behind the recent two-thirds resignations of the MCA central committee members.

NONEOtherwise, former deputy MCA president Chua Soi Lek (right) would not have attempted to trigger the abortion of the party's AGM scheduled to be officiated by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, he said.

"For the first time in the 56-year MCA history, fresh party leadership elections had been decided by external remote control," Lim said in a statement issued today.

Chua resigned as deputy president yesterday with seven other central committee members.

That move coupled with former vice president Liow Tiong Lai faction's long-standing resignation offer provided the numbers to trigger fresh polls.

However, Lim gave no indication as to the identity of the 'external remote control' he was referring to.

This is not the first time such allegations have emerged. Last November, MCA president Ong Tee Keat had in an interview with Malaysiakini claimed that there were hidden hands behind Liow's move to unseat him.
