“Too Afraid To Step Down”

Natasha received an sms  from a former colleague,” Afraid lah Ong group..!! Not willing to step down.” Uncle Chua says the constitution clearly stipulates that there must be 20 elected CC members must resign, in order for fresh polls to be held. So backs on the wall for Liow group.”

 The whole article we reposts from an internet portal for you all to make your own judgement:-

The first MCA special committee meeting to look into details of fresh party polls ended with the committee chairperson Dr Chua Soi Lek saying that there may be no new elections at all.

NONEChua, also the party deputy president, told reporters after the hour-long meeting this morning that there were too many technical and legal issues involved for fresh elections to be held.

“The possibility (of not holding fresh polls) is very high,” he said when asked to comment on the issue.

Among the hurdles he cited are the unwillingness of central committee (CC) members to resign and the tenure of the new leadership if fresh polls are held. Another question is whether fresh polls should involve Youth and Wanita leadership.

While the committee could not make any decision today, it has directed the party’s lawyers to look into legal issues to make sure that any decision that it makes later will not breach the constitution.

Chua said the lawyers have been asked to submit their feedback later this week, after which the committee will meet again. This will be one of two meetings it will hold before making a final decision.

He also said that only 13 CC members, including himself, are willing to resign to pave the way for fresh polls, but did not reveal their names.

The constitution stipulates that 20 elected CC members must resign, in order for fresh polls to be held.

mca liao faction briefing penang 221109 liow tiong laiVice-president Liow Tiong Lai, who leads one of the three feuding factions, had previously said that 13 CC members from his faction are ready to resign.

Last Wednesday, the MCA CC meeting decided to postpone its annual general meeting – scheduled for last Saturday – to another date to allow the party to decide on the fresh polls.

A special committee headed by Chua was formed to look into the date and manner of the fresh elections.

Liow’s faction had sought for new elections to be held within 60 days but both Chua and party president Ong Tee Keat said they prefer a date after March next year.

‘Fresh polls without contesting’

Chua today reiterated that although the party crisis must be resolved as soon as possible through fresh polls, no deadline should be imposed on the CC to resign.

“Nobody should be talking about deadlines in January,” he said.

NONEChua also said that “fresh polls without contesting” would be the best way to end the impasse, but did not elaborate on the suggestion.

Liow, a member of the special committee, maintained that it will ultimately recommend fresh elections. He said his supporters are trying to convince the other CC members to resign.

“I don’t want to say much… Too many statements will affect our effort,” he said before leaving the party headquarters.

In the 2002 party polls, candidates for key posts were nominated and won without any contest. This was after then premier and Barisan Nasional head Dr Mahathir Mohammad brokered a ‘peace plan’ to end the infighting in MCA.

MCA Crisis…Car Boots to Ballot Boxes

e1443cbfc5ee4d339a2c59108d6e48b2

Joey of audie61 said a lot of the main stream media are covering the MACC probe on Ong Tee Keat but the one that catches the eye today is the MCA duel of EGM between Ong vs Chua.

Ong said,”“Delegates can make a stance on whether or not they support the resolutions at the ballot box. And since their vote is a secret, nobody will know about their stance.”

However a political watcher said,”If Ong is so confident on the wisdom of MCA delegates he will not consider to Pre-Empt any moves.Just goes to show that he is truly worried as his inpenetrable fortress is being breached ”

What goes on BEHIND the scenes

especially with the VOTES is not for us

to know..

Ti-Ong Happy Merdeka..Not Your Way

Natasha said all the press eyes were focussed on Tiong King Sing the MP who is at the very moment having a FALL-OUT with MCA President Ong Tee Keat at The SPDP Supreme council meeting in Kuching. What he said to the Press can be read at the borneoposts.com but what tickles us is the way he said, But I think Enough is enough lah!   Do you HONESTLY THINK SO……Bugi Wijaya meanwhile filed this report from the Land below the Wind and he has gathered the necessary information to give us a Very Happy Merdeka High…hik hik hik..!!! 

SACRIFICIAL_LAMB[1]       It was no ordinary wedding at the Sabah Cultural Centre in Penampang on the night of 29 August 2009.  Thousands of guests including UPKO President Tan Sri Bernard Dompok was in attendance despite the heavy rain and thunderstorm.

 After all it was the wedding reception of the son of Albert Boyou who runs Montis Sdn Bhd, the main contractor for a number of oil and gas projects.

 As the band belt out the Frank Sinatra “My Way”, it seems to be reminder  among the UPKO dominated crowd that this has got to do with the embattled MCA President Dato Ong Tee Keat .  Earlier in the day, the local Daily Express has the headline of UPKO Treasurer General Datuk Dr Marcus Mojigoh asking Ong to step aside from his position before his personal agenda affects the whole BN coalition.

 This is the first component party within BN who has spoken out on the current ‘fiasco’ facing Ong.  Whether this will pick up momentum among the other components it is yet to be seen.

While Mojigoh who is the MP for Putatan do not deny his close relationship with Dato Tiong King Sing, he feels Tiong should not step aside his position as the Chairman of the BNBBC if Ong does likewise.

 With UPKO stand, is this the end of the road for Ong?

 If one believes in the sign from the gods then it has to be from Sabah.  Mazu is the goddess who is associated with fishermen and mainly worshipped by the Hainanses clans among others.  It seems that as the Mazu statue controversy in Sabah where the erection of the Mazu statue in Kudat were stopped by the state government, blessing will not reach the Hainanese.

 This is evident now where Ong is a Hainanese and at the moment it seemd destined he will be the shortest serving MCA President in history.  For the record the other Hainanese MCA President was Tan Koon Swan who was president for 11 months that is from November 1985 till September 1986.  Prior to being president he has even been sacked from MCA.

 

So as we await for other to join in the bandwagon of UPKO, it seems like the song Ong should recite would be…….

 

And now, the end is near;

And so I face the final curtain.

My friend, I’ll say it clear,

I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain.

 

I’ve lived a life thats full.

I’ve traveled each and every highway;

And more, much more than this,

I did it my way.

 

Regrets, I’ve had a few;

But then again, too few to mention.

I did what I had to do

And saw it through without exemption.

 

I planned each charted course;

Each careful step along the byway,

But more, much more than this,

I did it my way.

 

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew

When I bit off more than I could chew.

But through it all, when there was doubt,

I ate it up and spit it out.

I faced it all and I stood tall;

And did it my way.

 

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried.

I’ve had my fill; my share of losing.

And now, as tears subside,

I find it all so amusing.

 To think I did all that;

And may I say – not in a shy way,

No, oh no not me,

I did it my way.

 

For what is a man, what has he got?

If not himself, then he has naught.

To say the things he truly feels;

And not the words of one who kneels.

The record shows I took the blows –

And did it my way!                                     HAPPY MERDEKA TO ALL MALAYSIANS WHEREVER YOU ARE FROM ALL OF US AT audie61.

“Najib Says to MCA”

najib ong

It seems everyone is talking about it. Will this spell the end for MCA? All great dynasties fall due to infighting and we know this from Chinese History says a political watcher. Cindy of audie61 couldn’t help but to reposts this Malaysiakini report:-

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak today urged MCA to solve its internal problems swiftly before it becomes a major issue for the Barisan Nasional.

 

 Speaking after opening the National Economic Advisory Council in Kuala Lumpur this morning, he said both factions within the party should think of BN’s interests and not let the crisis deteriorate.

He was referring to two factions led by party president Ong Tee Keat and sacked deputy president Dr Chua Soi Lek.

“What they need to do is to fix the problem immediately… don’t let this crisis erode the people’s support for MCA and, BN as a whole,” he said.

Najib also reiterated that they should adhere to BN’s principles, which is to resolve “internal matters” within the party.

The party on Wednesday had sacked deputy president Chua over his sex scandal which broke out in late 2007, early 2008.

Both are still ‘adamant about their positions’

According to the prime minister, both Ong and Chua seem to be “adamant about their positions” and only time will tell if they are ready to confront each other.

“Now we have to wait for both parties to talk, or maybe someone can become a mediator for their discussions,” he said.

However, Najib’s latest comment does not reflect the willingness that he mentioned yesterday, where he would act as an intermediary, if he is invited.  

Meanwhile, Ong said that he met Najib along with party vice-presidents Liow Tiong Lai and Kong Cho Ha to explain the decision taken by the presidential council to sack Chua.

 

 “We are deeply aware that the presidential council’s decision to expel the former deputy president may cause concern for component party members of Barisan Nasional.

“Najib’s stand to allow MCA to solve its internal issues without his interference is appreciated. I am also grateful for Najib’s advice to resolve this party matter as swiftly as possible,” wrote in his blog.

He also said that that the party leadership was united in its stand to overcome the challenges that may arise.

“Our focus is not on excessive politicking but in serving the people first. I have also told Najib in very clear terms that the MCA is committed to the concept of 1Malaysia,” he added.

Ti-Ong..”Whats $500 Million amongst Friends Huh..?”

The main stream media has frontpaged the  filing of MS500 Million Suit by Ong against Tiong.Natasha received an sms which said ,” What is, M$ 500 amongst Friends.Every one will have SOME SHARE .hahaha.? Well, Malaysiakini has this report and we have extracted the article and reposts it here.  

MCA president Ong Tee Keat today filed a RM500 million defamation suit against BN Backbenchers Club chairperson Tiong King Sing over the latter’s claim of giving RM10 million to the minister.

NONEOng, also the transport minister, only named Tiong as the defendant. The suit was filed by his team of nine lawyers at the Kuala Lumpur High Court registry at 11.15am today.

Ong is suing Tiong, who is also the Bintulu member of parliament, in his personal capacity.

Ong’s lawyer Ronnie Tan said that his client will donate the RM500 million to charity and education if he wins the case.

Ong and Tiong had been involved in a running battle over claims made by the Bintulu politician that he had given the money to the MCA president for party purposes.

Ong had denied the claims and had lodged a police report. Tiong meanwhile had said that he had a friend was witnessed the exchange of cash.

Injunction to be obtained soon

In his suit, Ong is also asking Tiong to retract the statement and make an apology through all major newspapers in the country. He also applied for an injunction to stop Tiong from repeating his claims.

“We hope to get the injunction as soon as possible,” said lawyer Tan (photo: with file).

NONEOng’s court documents also quoted Malaysiakini’s exclusive report on Aug 12 in which Tiong was reported to have made the RM10 million claims.

Ong further added that Tiong’s statement had tarnished his reputation, image and integrity, and had caused him to be hated and despised by the public.

He also said that Tiong’s allegation was unfounded and made in bad faith to stop the investigation into the Port Klang Free Trade Zone issue, in which Tiong’s company Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd is implicated.

Ong further claimed that his legal letter to Tiong on Aug 13 seeking a retraction, apology and compensation was unheeded with the Bintulu businessman continuing to make similar allegations to the newspapers……………

                                                                                                                                    Ooooh.WELL “SEE YOU” IN COURT

MY FRIEND.

MCA/SPDP “Baaaaaaaa..Conned..Hmmm”

SACRIFICIAL_LAMB[1]

Oh No! What else can I do? Cindy has this all wrapped up in this pictorial analysis….Very Happy to Help MCA says Tiong ….Baaaaaaaaaaa

This is the Malaysiakini report

RM1 rental: Tiong feels ‘conned’ by MCA
Andrew Ong
Aug 18, 09
6:51pm
The revelation by a MCA divisional leader that the party owns RM2 billion worth of assets has Bintulu MP and tycoon Tiong King Sing all riled up.This is because the party approached him for help in order to secure the use of eight four-storey shoplots for MCA-owned Tunku Abdul Rahman (TAR) College campus in Penampang, Sabah.Based on the tenancy agreement, TAR College only needs to pay Tiong’s company Wawasan Sdn Bhd a nominal fee of RM1 monthly for all units. 
 

Speaking to Malaysiakini at his office in Petaling Jaya today, Tiong said he had allowed the deal to go through in order to help MCA in its pursuit to provide affordable education.

Now, Tiong is feeling deceived after reading China Press’ report quoting Setiawangsa division MCA head Ho Yoon Ping’s boast that the party had RM2 billion in assets.

Given the party’s financial standings, Ho said it made no sense for the party or its president Ong Tee Keat to seek RM10 million in donations from Tiong. 

 “In a way, I have found out that I have been cheated,” said Tiong, “They are so rich (with) RM2 billion in assets and they tell me they are poor.”

“When they came to see me, they said that MCA had no money and couldn’t pay me (rent) or it would be charged on the students. I said ‘okay’, especially since the economy was not good at the time.

“I wanted to help reduce cost for the student and at the same time help to promote education.

“Do you think that by giving, I’m begging Utar (Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman) for a doctorate?” asked Tiong.

Tiong vs Ong

Adding insult to injury was the fact that Tiong’s company spent RM200,000 to refurbish the buildings before they were handed over.

The tenancy agreement, sighted by Malaysiakini, showed that the deal was inked in 2007 and is set to expire in six months.

 

 

 

 “No need to worry, it is still a long way to go,” said Tiong, when asked if he would still extend the tenancy agreement based on status quo.

He said he will take time to consider if the building should be rented to other causes.

Meanwhile, Tiong said he was not trying to find fault with MCA members who are trying to protect their party president Ong Tee Kiat (left).

However, Tiong said that if he is hit with accusations, he had the right to reply as in Ho’s case.

“I urge all the members. Please stop it. Let me (slug it out) with your president,” he said. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXkf143d7-E

Hmmm..Bad to Worse..BN Headache!! 

Ti-Ong.Ma-“Lord of the Rings”

Oxford University professor J. R. R. Tolkien who wrote the epic high fantasy novel”Lord of the Rings”would very much love to have Tiong King Sing as a leading man in his movie.However,Tiong is unavailable at the moment as he seems to be hogging the limelight in the Malaysian Politics controversy between BN “SPDP and MCA” in which he is so “PPpppppprrrrrreeecioussssssssssss
