MCA:”Muhyddin Your Show”

Joey received an sms,’Is any political problem unsolvable..?” Read the article in Malaysiakini and in it the Prime Minister Najib has instructed/mandate given to his deputy Muhyddin  to tackle the issue and come up with a solution.” Wow! Goodness me! MCA can’t solved their own problems and it seems only interference and assistance from a Third party will see that this problem does not drag on. 

The full article from Malaysiakini:-  

Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said he is giving himself one week to find a solution to the MCA leadership crisis.

He said a formula would be drawn up during that period to reach a consensus among the disputing party leaders.

He said a series of meetings had been held with several party leaders to discuss the crisis in greater detail.

bagan pinang by election nomination 031009 muhyiddin yasin“The task is not easy because it involves the interest of the party as well as that of the nation,” he told reporters.

He said he was given the mandate by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to tackle the problem by implementing pro-active measures as soon as possible to prevent the crisis from becoming worse.

“I’ve held a series of discussion, not with everyone, but certain individuals and I will continue with the discussion, if possible before the prime minister returns home (from abroad).

“At the same time, I’ll continue to accept suggestions from the Chinese community leaders who have also voiced their opinion and observation on the crisis,” he said.

The deputy premier’s remark comes five days ahead of the extraordinary general meeting (EGM) proposed by the faction aligned to vice-president Liow Tiong Lai.

Liow and his supporters have vowed to call off the EGM if the rival faction, headed by president Ong Tee Keat and his deputy Dr Chua Soi Lek, agree to holding fresh party elections next month.

Although conceding that a fresh elections is the best panacea for the impasse, Chua however wants the contest to be held next March while Ong has remained vague on this.

 

‘Win-win’ situation

Meanwhile, Muhyiddin said the crisis must be tackled in the best manner possible to arrive at a ‘win-win’ situation for everyone concerned.

Commenting on the measures to be taken, the Barisan Nasional deputy chairperson, said he had no intention of disclosing any condition or strategy until the settlement formula had been achieved.

“In the initial stage, we don’t want to set any condition. I feel the important thing is that they feel the measures that would be taken are aimed at resolving the problem and I feel, it has become a public secret, not a party secret any more. Everyone knows about it.

NONE“What is important is that at this stage, I will not set any condition. What is certain is that when it comes to a particular stage, there is an agreement in principle. So, we want them to uphold the decision with the objective of reaching a settlement,” he said.

He said the matter would not be announced to the public, including the media for as long as the objective had not be achieved.

“At this stage, it’s okay because it is still at the initial stage but subsequent measures would be disclosed when everyone have reached a consensus on what needs to be done,” he said.

Asked on Najib’s suggestion that a fresh election be held by the MCA to resolve the conflict. Muhyiddin said that was the view of the prime minister which he was working on.

“I was instructed to adopt this approach, but I will find a way of getting the consensus of the MCA leaders.

“Time is rather limited and the faster the better, because if the conflict drags for several more months, the situation will become worse and will affect MCA and the BN itself,” he said

MCA “Liow,Wee.Chiew-Greener Pastures..???”

Updated: 3.50pm-

MCA Women’s wing chief Chew Mei Fun and Youth wing chief Wee Ka Siong made tearful appeals for delegates to turn up at the Nov 28 extraordinary general meeting to press for fresh party polls.

During a press conference shortly after being dropped from the party’s party presidential council, the duo, in between tears, said that a strong showing at the EGM was vital to restore democracy in the party.

NONEThe dramatic press conference began with vice-president Liow Tiong Lai stating that the group’s “heart bled” following the axing of nine individuals from the council.

“MCA is a family at war and is presently engaged in the politics of slash and burn… it has disowned the Youth and Women’s wing chiefs. This is a serious matter and it has broken the camel’s back,” said Liow.

He said party president Ong Tee Keat had replaced the dropped presidential council members with his own men.

He claimed that Ong had axed detractors in order to have “absolute power”.

He then urged party delegates to “rise up” and attend the EGM in full force to pass the resolutions.

Liow, looking stern but composed, did not cry during the press conference.

Earlier today the party’s central committee voted to object the EGM called by Liow’s faction.

 

Natasha of audie61 received an sms from a former colleague in Malaysiakini that-“MCA CC rejects EGM2” .Where does this road lead to for Liow and rebel group. Just then she remembered an SPDP SC member who said this,”PRS are trying to get rid of Chinese members while SPDP is welcoming them.”

 Also SPDP plans to go National and what an opportunity for the MCA rebels who will obviously sooner rather than later be sent to a very “FREEZING COLD ROOM” Is there any room for them in SPDP..?? This will erase another  headache from Najib and the cabinet.  

The full report we reposts for all:-

The MCA central committee headed by party president Ong Tee Keat today rejected the call made by a minority group in the CC for an extraordinary general meeting on Nov 28.

The central committee said the proposed EGM and its resolutions calling for a fresh party polls were defective and against the party constitution.

The decision to reject the EGM was made after the matter was put to a vote in which 23 voted against the EGM, 10 supported it and two abstained.

The EGM was mooted by a faction backing vice-president Liow Tiong Lai. They are opposed to the greater unity plan undertaken by Ong and his rival-turned-ally Dr Chui Soi Lek.

The CC meeting also decided to revamp the powerful presidential council, resulting in Liow loyalists Youth chief Wee Ka Siong and Women’s wing chief Chew Mei Fun being dropped.

They were replaced by Ong and Chua’s backers.

 

In an immediate reaction, Liow said that he was unhappy with the party’s decision to remove his supporters from the presidential council.

So SPDP be ready to open up your doors for these MCA Ministers plus Deputy Ministers and you will be a major player in the country too. It is something really worth considering as the political climate is so fluid at the moment.

Liow “Accept or Resign”

Updated from Malaysiakini- Home Minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the decision by ROS was based on three main factors – the country laws, the Societies Act 1996 and the MCA constitution.

“Should the matter be taken to court, we, at the ministry, and ROS will explain and defend the decision,” he told a news conference at the Parliament lobby here today.
liow tiong lai

Liow Tiong Lai and his renegades in MCA have tasted the bitter sweet of party politics and the learning process of it all is a rocky and winding road to the top. Politics never takes prisoners and if he was to fall by the wayside and does not accept the decisions he will be affixing his very own signature to his own MCA DEATH WARRANT.

The ROS has spoken and no one should and can dispute it as it clearly states in the Societies Act 1966(Act 335 ) & regulations.-18c Decision of political party to be final and conclusive.

{ The decision of a political party or any person authorised by it or by its constitution or rules or regulations made thereunder on the interpretation of its constitution,rules or regualtions or any matter relating to the affairs of the party shall be final and conclusive and such decision shall not be challenged,appealed against,reviewed,quashed or called in questionb in any court on any ground,and no court shall have jurisdiction to entertain or determine any suit,application,question or proceeding on any ground regarding the validity of the decision.}

Larry sng

That is the very reason which also saw to the end of problems in Party Rakyat Sarawak in which there was the factional infighting for two years between James Masing and Larry Sng. The ROS declared James the legitimate President and Larry’s man just left him and the party and joined PKR enbloc. Liow the options and the door has just slammed shut on you with the PM agreeing to the decision.

So Liow now are you ready to bow down and accept the truth or leave MCA. This is the statement copied from Malaysiakini,’ Speaking at a press conference in Parliament, the Barisan Nasional chieftain described the ROS’ stunning decision as “purely legal”..

According to Najib, this is how the ROS interpreted the MCA constitution.

“The constitution is based on certain provisions which requires two-thirds majority to remove anyone in the party whether appointed or elected.

“Now based on that, that is why they (ROS) said Chua is still the deputy and this is the same provision that keeps Ong Tee Keat as president,” he said.

Najib added that the ROS has to be consistent as it cannot make two different decisions when the case is the same.”You cannot have one principle on the president, and another on the deputy. MCA has decided that part of the constitution, the ROS only interpreted the constitution,” he said

Liow said that he reserves the right he reserves the right to file an appeal or take the matter to court.

My friend Mr.Health Minister please wise up and take your time and you will not regret it. The journey has just started for you but if you just insists to follow that path of CONFRONTATIONAL Politics you will always be used as a Hand Grenade and others will benefit from your irrational ways.

We would also recommend you to read this from an internet blog,” Sarawak’s renewed political hopes. Many have tried and have failed to challenge the Presidents of respective parties. Will you be able to create this historical breakthrough…???

SPDP”A Lemon Twists”

A reliable source telephoned audie61 with these news,”Latest Bro. SPDP will see a fight for the Presidency.” Obviously the first question would be ,’Is it Nyarok against Mawan.? No,no,no its going to be the present SG Assistant Minister YB Slyvester Entri challenging Mawan. Also Nyarok will be maintained in the team with Entri as the No.2. This is breaking news as 6 SPDP Nothern divisions met in Miri (AIDA WAS THE PERSON WHO ORGANISED THE DINNER) and THEY HAVE given undivided support to the SG in his fight against the President.

( Latest updated:- Mawan has left to KL to attend the UMNO conference and also to inform Tiong of the latest development according to our source. Meanwhile an SC member told  audie61 on the phone there are a 1001 things which is happening in SPDP which we are not happy with. Seems the battles are beginning and might just  escalate.…)

Immediatedly audie61 swung into action to get feedbacks from the Political Secretaries and Supreme Council members and most of them would not be dragged into this fight and still remains divided in their opinions. A former Pol.Sec however told audie61 that ,”Wait till Friday and it will be more concrete.”

Could the PKFZ scandal be used as a leverage to turn the tables.It seems that  unknown hands are meddling in the affairs of SPDP. Whats more in the local dailies Mawan sounded very firm when he said,”SPDP will discipline any of its members who did or said things that could destabilise the party in the run up to its Triennial Delegates Assembly in December.

It is a known fact that Mawan is very close, infact inseparable from MP Tiong King Sing who is in the centre of the storm and this has greatly affected the reputation of SPDP as Tiong is the Youth Chief/Treasurer and also Chief Financier of SPDP. Mawan also did not mince his words when he said ,”he will come down hard on those challenging the status quo of top leaders come the TGA,and labeeled them as potential troublemakers tot he party.” So who is the trouble maker from within and from outside. There is a LEMON TWISTS EFFECT to all this happening in SPDP.

What is a Lemon twists? Lemon twists are most often used to garnish dry vodka martinis or accompanying espresso, but they can be used with many other drinks. They are used for both flavor and decoration. Some people attempt to cut a twist directly from the lemon. Nyarok was supposed to be challenged by Tiong and now it seems Nyarok has found a new ally in Entri.

The espresso effect has found new friends and whats more with DPM Muhyddin coming out with this statement ,’ He stressed that it is not only Umno which must transform, but also BN component parties.”We must be prepared to carry out an in-depth transformation to reach new heights in understanding.”

 The writing is clearly on the wall for those who fail to see the changes and cracks which are appearing in the BN family. From March 8th 2008 BN has been under attack for being too complacent and at times too arrogant for the people to accept  and thus the Voters turned their backs on the BN administration.

 SPDP needs to put their house in order as Sarawak State elections is around the corner and there are already indications that new faces are fast appearing to be the new BN candidates in order to ensure BN stays in power in Sarawak. Though the opposition parties are under wraps with too much infighting BN Sarawak will be under no illusion that all is vey well. Though the CM says 60 seats are assured the BN administration will be on their toes as when its TOO CALM an EXTRA-ORDINARY TSUNAMI might just happen.

The PKFZ scandal has in fact put SPDP in the limelight and with these turn of events LEMON TWISTSand HIDDEN HANDS being involved it seems we are in for some interesting political changes in Sarawak in the coming months.

Pakatan”BN SARAWAK SPDP,”Overheating..!!”

 

Our insider source says to Natasha of audie61,”SPDP is rattled as the upcoming TDC might see some changes.Whats more with Muhyddin saying that component parties needs to reform. This seems to be the PERFECT TIMING for SPDP to initiate changes within. The party is already tainted with their involvement of Party Treasurer crossing swords with MCA President Ong Tee Kiat.”

The source went further,” Will the legislators (YBs and MPs) just watch from the sidelines? Wont they just disassociate themselves from controversies? Even the Singapore  Miss World contestant was forced to withdraw from the pagaent to avoid shaming the whole organisation.

 The heat of the PKFZ scandal will be detrimental for the party itself and it remains to be seen whether the “..HIDDEN HANDS/BN WARLORDS..” will put their thumbs down and squeeze the RIPE PIMPLE( SPDP might be clogged or infected by Bad publicity) out to save the SMOOTH and CLEAN FACE of SPDP. BN SARAWAK needs to be as far away from a PKFZ scandal as possible as it will OBVIOUSLYand SURELY be used as an ISSUE.

The swirl on the ground especially within the BN family in Sarawak is that with PKR gaining momentum it is and will be a SORE POINT and if allowed to affect the coalition it spells trouble. The timing is absolutely perfect and Mawan a close confidante of the Tresurer needs to find a MIDDLE GROUND fast.  The sources told Natasha that the State BN Chief Taib Mahamud is also watching closely at the developements of the PKFZ as the MP is from Sarawak. The President of SPDP Mawan has to make a CLEAR STAND as he too might be dragged into the whirlpool and also might just be SUCKED IN DEEPLY.

SUPP might be hogging the limelight with the Dudong issue but SPDP will not be able to escape the media as the political warfare between Tiong and Ong does not take a back seat.  ... Sri William Mawan anak Ikom

The Overheating within the BN/SPDP needs to be addressed and there is even words from the ground that Mawan might just be edged out bythe LIGHT  BLUE COLOURS OF PKR  in the next state elections eventhough he is assured of at least 90% of the postal votes.

No one can be a HERO now and a BN ticket previously is a SURE 99% WIN FOR  A SEAT IN THE COUNCIL NEGERI IN SARAWAK.” It has oveheated and now the chances are but at 70% in the rural areas but in the urban areas its at 50/50.

Just a reminder to BN State assemblyman we wrote on December 22nd 2008 ,” Now the internet will play a bigger role in the decimation of information to the rural areas. It seems that now PKR knows that the information technology will be used to inform the RURAL areas of the CHANGES happening in the world and ensure that the dayaks are no more ignorant of the FACTS.  The TEAM has now looked into this strategy as all PKR information will be downloaded and PHOTOSTATED and DISTRIBUTED into the rural areas. Now with the influx of PKR dayak members into the fold these Valuable information will be an added PLUS. The PKR senior member sounds upbeat after talking to Natasha of audie61. “ALL IS AT A TOUCH OF THE BUTTON AND THE KEYPAD NOW” 

We say as always,”The political  battles  will  be stepped up for N41 PAKAN (9034) William Mawan ak.Ikom (BN-SPDP). The opposition strategists are closely monitoring Mawan and he must  know how to clear himself from this umbilical cord and not subject himself to the SWIRLING WHIRLPOOL

Chua Soi Lek”Su Hock Ee”

e1443cbfc5ee4d339a2c59108d6e48b2

It was like any other Hari Raya Visitations to an old school friends house. The usual greetings and pleasantries were exchanged plus also the delight to see so many familier faces. Whats more the food laid out was…. Oooh SOoo appetising. There were many voices of different opinions especially as school mates meet they will be like old times in school eventhough that was nearly 20 years ago “all trying to be No.1 and be heard” Familiar..??

Of course each will try to say their own piece,”The economy,the political scenario (BN vs Pakatan) the educational system but the one that LIGHTED THE FIRE was the MCA No.2 deputy President Chua Soi Leck. One of my school mate hit the right chord when he said,”This Chua really Su Hock Ee ( Lose to Him translated from Hockien). He also seems so thick skinned and would not just disappear silently like most politicians of yesteryears would have. Would anyone of us fight like he does..?”

The MCA saga has gone overdrive and most of us gave the THUMBS UP to Chua for his perserverance and never say die attitude. One of them even say like Josephians never know when they are defeated. We will fight to the last drop of our blood. Surprisingly,most of us were very unhappy too with Ong Tee Keat for not being steadfast and be more accomodative towards a person who has already paid for his sins in being shamed. Even God forgive the sinners they say and why would Tee Keat not make use of the No.2 man to his advantage.

Has he forgotten about the rule book. Never question the No.1 but if the No.1 does not show respect and bulldozzes through without even telling the No.2 that is a sign of WEAKNESS. Even Najib consults Muhyddin on certain things before he moves his agenda. Im sure Anwar also does that said an old school mate. What makes Chua Soi Leck so prominent its because Ong gave him the PLATFORM and the OPPORTUNITY to hit back. Chua was already shamed with the video sex scandal but one of us added another phrase  in Hockien,” BIN POI KOW-meaning Thick skinned.

You all might be WONDERING WHY MCA…?? Why are we not touching on local politics or even UMNO,PKR ,DAP or PAS? Surely the PKFZ scandal and Tiong King Sings issue is worth a conversation.  Moreover there were about 20 of us and in a Malay friends house. The answer was in our year we were taught the right meaning of DIPLOMACY (Ong needs to learn from us hik hik hik ) and since some of us are from different political divides there was a NEED to follow the LINE OF NEUTRALITY. Chua Soi Lecks purported EGM and the possibility of the ouster of the MCA President is the TALK OF THE TOWN. Who is going to be the AYAM MASAK MERAH in this fight..??

We could go on and on on how this fight will pen out but like the good old days some one just “Detonated  a very good quiet atomic gas”It was signal and the wives in the other room were too happy that it was cut short. One of them even cheekily said ,” Got any steps learnt from each other and what about  the Booster or Viagra used by Chua Soi Leck. Just then one of them showed us this article and how ironic it was as we were talking about our friend Chua.

Posted and copied for all to make their own judgement.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 21 — Just when the MCA seemed all set to hold its extraordinary general meeting (EGM), in the wake of deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek’s dismissal, the party’s central committee (CC) has flexed its muscles to overturn the decision and suspend him for four years instead.

This begs the question of whether the power of the CC was overlooked, or even underestimated, in the fractious past weeks which saw more than a fair share of barbs traded between rival supporters of party president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and Dr Chua.

“They overlooked the CC as an independent body and pre-empted us by going straight for an EGM which should be called only as a last resort, and not the first resort. Members should not have jumped the gun,” CC member Datuk Ti Lian Ker, of Pahang, told Bernama.

He said disgruntled members should have waited first to see how the CC would act before pushing for the EGM, now fixed for Oct 10, after the presidential council sacked Dr Chua for tarnishing the party’s image over a sex video scandal.

Ti said the party constitution empowered the CC to take disciplinary action  against any elected party official including to suspend or to expel with the support of two-thirds of the CC members present at the meeting.

Under Article 128 of the constitution, the CC has the final say on disciplinary matters and that cannot be challenged, even in a court of law.

Ti said he had insisted that Dr Chua’s issue be discussed at the marathon seven-hour CC meeting last Saturday, to show that the party president could not act arbitarily, or that the CC was just a rubber stamp.

Currently, there are 43 CC members, with 25 elected, seven appointed by the president while the rest are party office-bearers.

Ti denied that the CC’s move was tantamount to a lack of confidence in the presidential council, saying that at the same meeting the CC had overturned other disciplinary decisions as well.

Party sources said Dr Chua’s issue was brought up by Senator Datuk Wong Siong Hwee from Kelantan and all were given the opportunity to express their views, including the most senior CC member, Datuk Wong Mook Leong.

Wong re-told his experience when he was sacked during the party crisis in the 1980s, saying that a suspension would have a similar effect as an expulsion, the source said.

“Some CC members sympathised with Dr Chua. They felt there was no need to push an already broken man and believed he should be given a chance to salvage a bit of his shattered honour,” it added.

Ong, who chaired the meeting, had to “eat humble pie” in the face of the check and balance on his leadership by the CC, the source noted.

Enraged supporters of Dr Chua, however, hit back that it was not appropriate and an act of disrespect to the central delegates for the CC to discuss the matter as the rival factions had already agreed to the EGM and agenda.

Even Dr Chua spoke up: “Are they trying to say the CC is more supreme than the EGM?”

Party veteran Datuk Yap Pian Hon maintained the CC had the mandate because all decisions, including disciplinary matters, must go through both the presidential council and CC, the two decision-making organs in the party.

“If we stop at the presidential council level, it can be argued later that the decision is invalid because the due process was not complete,” he said.

Dr Chua’s supporters are pointing fingers that it was Ong who first called for an EGM on Aug 31, when they had barely started their signature campaign to push for one to annul Dr Chua’s sacking.

A political observer, who declined to be named, views the CC’s decision as a “smart tactical move” by Ong’s side to neutralise the sympathy factor towards Dr Chua for the EGM.

The suspension may cause some of the 2,377 delegates to reconsider their views and swing away from Dr Chua as he would only be a party member after four years.

After all, Dr Chua had said he wanted to die an MCA member, the observer noted. — Bernama

Cute..M$720 Million Refund

HellOooo..Am I Missing Somethinggggg..?? Would you just believe this? We made a mistake we are overcharged and now we need a refund. WHAT TYPE OF ADMINISTRATION IS THIS…?? Do you honestly think that the people are FOOLS. Even if they are they cannot be cheated over and over again and again. A fool today might just wake up to make you the GREATEST FOOL that ever lived. Please be more realistic. You made the mistake you pay for it. Get the Drift..Or am I telling it to a BLOCKHEAD…

The Port Klang Authority (PKA) today sued Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) for RM720 million, a sum which the contractor allegedly overcharged for the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) project.

The suit was filed at the Shah Alam High Court this morning by PKA chairperson Lee Hwa Beng, who is the plaintiff on behalf of PKA.

lee hwa beng pkfz pc 210509 02In a statement today, Lee said PKA is seeking a declaration that interest charged on the balance purchase price of the land purchase was wrongly imposed.

He said KDSB had sold the land to PKA at RM1.088 billion at the rate of RM25 per square foot on a “special value” basis in addition to interest being charged.

“Interest ought not to have been charged separately and/or in addition to the said RM25 per square foot”, said Lee.

PKA is also seeking the court’s intervention and rectification of its schedule of payment to KDSB, as well as a refund of the interest payments made thus far.

Lee added that PKA’s decision to sue KDSB was made even before the establishment of the ‘super’ task force established by the Cabinet to probe the PKFZ scandal.

Lee warns that other suits would be filed for fraudulent, wrongful or irregular claims but did not name the parties concerned.

KDSB is the turnkey developer of the PKA owned multi-billion ringgit PKFZ flop, prompting the government to engage PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to perform an audit on the project.

Following the publication of PwC’s report in May, KDSB filed a defamation suit against PKA and the auditor for defamatory comments found in the report.

Amongst others, the PwC report claims that KDSB ‘may have’ overcharged PKA in the land purchase and overpriced the value of its works. WHO IS TO BE BLAMED..Have You Made up YOUR MIND..???
