The MCA: From 7-11 to 1+3D DaMaCai party

After the last general election, MCA was mocked as the ‘7-11′ convenience store due to the party only wining seven parliament and 11 state seats.

If the Chinese continue to vote against it in the next polls, party deputy president Wee Ka Siong said MCA might become “1+3D DaMaCai” with only one parliament and three state seats.

MCA can be reduced from a 7/11 party into a ¾ (tiga suku) party in the 14GE if it continues to allow UMNO President to play footsie with Hadi on the RUU355 bill

MCA can be reduced from a 7/11 party (winning only seven parliamentary and 11 state assembly seats) in the 13GE into a ¾ (tiga suku) political party winning only three parliamentary and four state assembly seats in the 14GE if it continues to allow the UMNO President to play footsie with PAS President, Datuk Seri Awang Hadi on the RUU355 Bill.

Malaysians have been watching the stance of the MCA Ministers and Members of Parliament on Hadi’s RUU355 Bill for the past year, and whatever the MCA protestations and public postures, the undeniable fact is that MCA is part of the Barisan Nasional government coalition that has allowed Hadi’s RUU355 Bill, which goes against the very basis of the Merdeka Constitution 1957 and Malaysia Agreement 1963, to get thus far in Parliament.

In fact, without the consent and approval of the Barisan Nasional government and coalition, Hadi’s RUU355 Bill would not appear as the 10th item in the Parliamentary Order Paper when Dewan Rakyat reconvened yesterday.

The question is whether MCA Ministers and MPs will continue to shut their eyes, ears and mouths when the Prime Minister and UMNO President, Datuk Seri Najib Razak continues the playing a long-running “footsie” with Hadi, allowing RUU355 Bill to take priority over all government business and presented to the House but no debate, then amended but postponed to the present meeting without general debate or voting?

Already, Najib has garnered considerable political benefit from “playing footsie” with Hadi, for the PAS President has not only taken PAS out of Pakatan Rakyat and aligned to UMNO on a variety of issues, Hadi has personally become the greatest defender and champion of Najib as Prime Minister of Malaysia and Najib’s 1MDB scandal and kleptocracy.

The voices in PAS questioning the monstrous and heinous international multi-billion dollar 1MDB money-laundering scandal do not belong to mainstream Hadi leadership viewpoint, and are allowed to dilute and mislead public opinion that PAS under Hadi’s leadership has become a champion of Najib’s kleptocracy.

But is this what the MCA Ministers and MPs want?

Malaysians and the world are waiting for an answer in the current meeting of Parliament.

MCA throws some ‘dirty stuff’ back at UMNO…

MCA has never shied away from taking on DAP

PETALING JAYA: MCA has never been afraid of taking on the DAP, says its Youth wing secretary-general Datuk Leong Kim Soon.

He was responding to Umno Youth vice-chief Khairul Azwan Harun, who claimed that there were many MCA members who wished to see their leaders be more outspoken against their political enemies, particularly DAP.

Leong said Khairul should leave his comfort zone and speak to the grassroots to find out why the Chinese community had rejected Barisan.

The reason, he said, was because of “one after another slanderous remarks from Umno leaders”.

“Every year during the Umno annual general assembly, Umno leaders will make extremist remarks and hurt the Chinese community, which led to the drop in the support from the Chinese voters.

“Other Barisan component parties have had to bear the consequences of their outrageous remarks. When there is a loss of Chinese votes, Umno will ultimately put all the blame on MCA and MCA becomes the scapegoat in the end. Is this their so-called BN spirit?” he said in a statement, Saturday.

He said it was because of this that efforts MCA made to woo back Chinese support were futile.

MCA Youth wants non-Chinese memberships

KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Youth will propose amendments to its constitution to allow non-Chinese affiliate members into the party.

If the motion tabled at its annual general assembly next month is successful, MCA would be the first of Malaysia’s founding parties to go multi-racial, Youth wing chairman Datuk Chong Sin Woon said, indicating that the 67-year-old party might not be ready for direct non-Chinese memberships.

“The best thing to do is to have a transition period with affiliate members and organisations, so let’s start with that.

“We will bring it up at the AGM to amend the party constitution. We are drafting the proposal to have affiliate organisations for the approval of the party’s central committee,” he said after chairing the national youth wing’s briefing session yesterday.

Jangan bincang isu kerusi secara terbuka, pesan Ahli Majlis Tertinggi Umno kepada rakan-rakan komponen BN.

PETALING JAYA: MCA perlu beri jaminan yang ia boleh menangkan Parlimen Kuantan, Gelang Patah dan Wangsa Maju untuk BN sebelum mengambil semula tiga kerusi tersebut daripada Umno.

Ahli Majlis Tertinggi (MT) Umno Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim berkata partinya sedia berbincang dengan rakan-rakan BN berhubung pengagihan kerusi untuk PRU14 nanti, namun tidak mahu tolak ansur itu disia-siakan.

“Banyak orang cakap nak ambil kerusi, kerusi itu. Boleh dibincang tetapi jaminan kemenangan? Jangan hanya minta kerusi tetapi tidak boleh beri kemenangan,” katanya kepada FMT.

Beliau mengulas rancangan Presiden MCA Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai meminta Umno menyerahkan semula tiga kerusi Parlimen itu yang menurut MCA ‘milik’ mereka. Menurut Tiong Lai, partinya sudah memuktamadkan calon untuk PRU14.

MCA pula bertanding di 37 kerusi Parlimen dan alami kemerosotan teruk dalam sejarahnya apabila hanya memenangi 7 kerusi.

Don’t ask for seats if you can’t win, says Shahidan

August 23, 2016

Liow, who is also transport minister, says MCA will ask Umno to return the three parliamentary seats that used to be given to them in Kuantan, Gelang Patah and Wangsa Maju.

 

Previously, MCA President Liow Tiong Lai said MCA had already finalised its candidates for the 14th General Election (GE14) as a first step to regain seats that it did not win in the last general election.

Liow, who is also transport minister, said MCA would ask Umno to return the three parliament seats that used to be theirs — in Kuantan, Gelang Patah and Wangsa Maju.

Liow said MCA would work hard to win back the support of the Chinese community through their services for the people, including in areas which MCA lost in the previous GE.

In GE12, the MCA candidate for the Kuantan seat, Star Media Group Chairman Fu Ah Kiow, lost to PKR candidate Fuziah Salleh who won with a majority of 1,826 votes.

In GE13, Umno borrowed MCA’s seat to field Mohamed Suffian Awang, but Fuziah was not only able to hold the seat for the second term but also won with a much higher majority of 4,515 votes.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2016/08/23/dont-ask-for-seats-if-you-cant-win-says-shahidan/

Liow: Chinese will back Barisan all the way

PUTRAJAYA: MCA is confident that Chinese voters in Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar will throw their support behind Barisan Nasional candidates, says its president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

“They feel that the Government is responsive to their requests. They want to see a stable and strong government.

“The Chinese community also understands that its vote needs to be with the Government, and not all the time with the Opposition,” he said after attending a meeting to co-ordinate by-election activities chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Chinese voters comprise 33% of the voters in Sungai Besar while in Kuala Kangsar, the community constitutes 23% of the voting population.

The comments of Malaysiakini subscribers are ruthless!

MCA, why should Chinese gamble their future on you? |

Embedded image permalink

Clever Voter: MCA no longer has the legitimacy to represent the Chinese community. The political party did not recover ever since its internal feud and scandals of the 70s. The leadership owes its livelihood to Umno, which is also on the decline.

The slow death of the party is inevitable. The party has no moral values and years of neglect in upholding important elements of trust, credibility and capability have shifted even its traditional support to elsewhere.

MCA should ask why would the current and future generations gamble their future on them? The future is on strengthening the Malaysian identity. The majority of Malaysians want a national identity that brings together our diverse population.

MCA, in other words, is backward in its thinking and holding on to its past as well as corrupt partners can only lead to its extinction.

Turvy: MCA deputy president Wee Ka Siong’s language is revealing. For him, politics and the interests of people are like a lottery.

The Chinese built their destiny in this country and are most loyal and committed to this nation. It is this, their fierce patriotism, which frightens Umno.

It also frightens MCA, because it is this quality of the Chinese that makes the party irrelevant.

Odin Tajué: Wee, the fact is simple. You want the Chinese to vote for MCA candidates so that you will continue to enjoy the salary, the perks and the prestige you are now enjoying.

Some ‘bangsat’ Malays have called your people ‘babi’, ‘pendatang’ and ‘penumpang’, and threatened to slap them, to bathe their keris in Chinese blood.

Now tell your fellow Chinese what you have done to put a stop to all that, and if they are convinced, maybe they will vote for your party the next time around.

Otherwise, you can always cry. Like what you did that one time.

KUALA LUMPUR — Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak sought to reach out to ethnic Chinese voters yesterday by pledging to “do more” for the community should they support the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition.

“You must show support. If you show support we have no problem giving more. But you must come forward to support me. If not I’ll get the heat,” said the BN chairman at the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) annual general assembly.

“They will say, you give them so much, but then they never support you. This is difficult lah,” he added, referring to the main Malay base in BN’s dominant party, United Malays National Organisation (UMNO).

After the last general election, MCA was mocked as the ‘7-11′ convenience store due to the party only wining seven parliament and 11 state seats.

If the Chinese continue to vote against it in the next polls, party deputy president Wee Ka Siong said MCA might become “1+3D DaMaCai” with only one parliament and three state seats.

Such a scenario, he added, would make it more difficult for MCA to fight for the interests of the Chinese community within the BN framework.

“In the worst case scenario, if MCA suffers another major defeat in the next general election, the chances of success in fighting for the Chinese community’s legitimate demands would be similar to that of striking ‘lottery’,” he warned during his speech at the MCA Youth annual meet in Kuala Lumpur today.

BN turning into ‘racial conflict factory’, rues MCA Youth

Adrian Wong     Published Today 1:33 pm

MCA Youth chief Chong Sin Woon lamented that the BN mechanism to resolve ethnic issues is now dysfunctional, and the ruling coalition is degenerating into a “racial conflict factory”.

Therefore, he urged BN parties to open their membership to all regardless of race.

“In the latest red-shirts rally, we find that BN as a platform to ease ethnic conflicts is not working, and even deteriorated into a factory which creates ethnic conflicts instead.

“(Some BN leaders) sacrifice national interest and provoke racial sentiments in order to gain votes.

“Is there any hope for the nation’s future? I think BN’s transformation plan must not be delayed,” he told representatives at the MCA Youth annual meet in Kuala Lumpur today.

MCA defends membership in BN, says a moderate coalition

Embedded image permalink

MCA today defended its continued membership in Barisan Nasional (BN) despite losing appeal among Chinese voters and seemingly disregarded by partner Umno, saying it was to protect the country’s multi-racial demography.

Its president, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, said the ruling coalition practised moderation.

“BN is still a moderate coalition. Why we are still in BN is to defend our multi-racial country, it is important (to preserve) Malaysia. Don’t let racists and religious extremists take the stage,” he said at a press conference after attending the party’s briefing to grassroots at its headquarters today.

The party has suffered serious setbacks since the 2008 general election. MCA saw its share of seats erode to 15 federal and 32 state seats in the 12th national polls.

In the 2013 general election, the Chinese party fared worse, ending up with only seven parliamentary and 11 state seats.

Leave BN, Umno man tells MCA as gloves come off over #Merah169

BY YISWAREE PALANSAMY

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 23 — An Umno Youth leader demanded that MCA leave Barisan Nasional (BN) over its objection to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s stand on the “red shirts” rally, saying the party’s departure would barely affect the pact’s parliamentary numbers.

The leader, Titiwangsa Umno Youth chief Nazir Hussin Akhtar Hussin, also accused MCA of not pulling its weight as BN’s second largest component party, pointing to the pact’s flagging Chinese support.

“We want Chinese leaders who can work,” he told Malay Mail Online when contacted.

“It doesn’t matter if MCA stays with BN or moves out since they are not doing much, and they don’t represent much in BN’s parliamentary (numbers) anyway,” Nazir continued.

If MCA leaders had really done their part, he said, the Chinese community would not have turned their support to the DAP.

Ties between Umno and MCA continue to be strained following Pasir Gudang MCA Youth division’s move to cut ties with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said if the MCA wing wanted to resort to such actions, then it is best for them to exit the ruling coalition.

He also called on MCA Youth to probe the wing over the matter.

His remarks come in the wake of MCA Youth secretary-general Leong Kim Soon telling Pahang Umno Youth not to meddle in the party’s internal affairs, when it made a similar call.

Khairy, who is also BN Youth chairperson, said Pasir Gudang MCA Youth’s decision risked jeopardising ties in the ruling coalition.

Meanwhile, Umno Youth information chief Jamawi Jaafar urged MCA to state its stand on the matter and take stern action against Pasir Gudang MCA Youth chief Cia Chow Hui.

He wanted MCA president Liong Tiong Lai to break his silence.

On the other hand, Johor Umno youth chief Hahasrin Hashim urged Pasir Gudang MCA Youth to apologise.

MCA: No action against ‘defiant child’ for cutting ties with Najib

MCA will forgive its ‘defiant child’ – the Pasir Gudang Youth – which decided to cut ties with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, instead of taking disciplinary action against it.

The influential court of public opinion and pressure had prompted the division’s youth wing to act, said MCA secretary-general Ong Ka Chuan.

MCA will forgive the youth wing, which lacks in group consciousness and acts according to its own view, he said at a press conference, quoted by Sin Chew Daily.

“Despite Pasir Gudang MCA Youth taking a different stand and principle with the party, we allowed them the space to do so.

“We will not simply resort to disciplinary action; we treat them as though they are our own child,” he said.

Party secretary-general Ong Ka Chuan said the briefing would be attended by all divisional chairpersons, deputy chairpersons, secretaries, Youth chiefs and Wanita chiefs to discuss a uniformed stand.

He said the recent public gatherings, coupled with political, economic and racial issues, have led to a tense situation and MCA is concerned about this.

Ong urged all MCA members to keep calm at this crucial juncture and refrain from making emotional statements which would further erode the situation as intended by those instigating it.

“This situation will not bring any good at all to the party, race and nation.

“I urge all MCA comrades to keep a cool head, analyse matters rationally, and learn clearly the origins of the uneasiness facing us now, i.e. how disputes over 1MDB’s financial problems have been intentionally manipulated by certain quarters into a racial issue,” he said.

Ketua Penerangan ‎Pergerakan Pemuda UMNO, Jamawi Jaafar berkata, kenyataan tidak menyokong Presiden Barisan Nasional (BN) itu disifatkan sebagai tindakan kebudak-budakan yang hanya untuk menangguk di air keruh kononnya Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu pada 16 September lalu adalah rasis.

“Sekiranya Tiong Lai tidak menyokong, tindakan disiplin yang keras harus dikenakan kepada Ketua Pemuda MCA Pasir Gudang tersebut.

An Umno division leader has critcised MCA for practicing double standards when it comes to rallies.

Syed Ali Alhabshee said MCA is “lopsided and prejudice” in evaluating the Sept 16 rally – dubbed as Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu – held to uphold Malay dignity.

“They vent their anger at Umno leaders because of the rally but keep quiet when thousands of Chinese participated in Bersih 4.

“They only see Malays who gathered because of anger and frustration but shut their eyes to their race (the Chinese) insulting Umno leaders,” he added in a blog post.

His remarks come in the wake of Pasir Gudang MCA Youth severing ties with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak for defending the Sept 16 rally.

The rally held to counter Bersih 4, especially with regards to participants stomping on photographs of Najib, witnessed provocative banners and insults hurled at the Chinese.

Syed Ali said BN component parties, especially MCA, should seek an explanation on the Sept 16 rally through proper channels.

Pasir Gudang MCA Youth is breaking ties with BN chairperson and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, following his support for Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu.

Its chief Cia Chow Hui said the red shirt rally on Sept 16 had destroyed racial harmony.

“We don’t agree with the Sept 16 rally which has spoilt race relations. But Najib praised the rally as peaceful. Therefore, we have decided (to break ties),” he told Malaysiakini when contacted.

In a MCA Pasir Gudang division’s Facebook post today, the youth announced that they were disappointed with Najib’s backing of the red shirt rally.

“In the Sept 16 rally, there were a banner titled ‘annihilate SJK (C)’. Some of them fought with the police while others tried to break into Petaling Street.

“This has destroyed interracial harmony and friendship that has existed since independence.

“We don’t understand why the prime minister had to praise an illegal rally. Najib should have handled the rally in a moderate spirit to ease the racial tension.”

The youth viewed that Najib should focus on reviving the economy instead of backing an extremist rally.

Hence they urged Najib to punish those making extremist statements and actions.

They added the members of this youth division will not attend Najib’s functions or support him in any way.

MCA: DAP to blame for Malay anger, not Chinese

Embedded image permalink

A MCA leader said growing Malay anger towards the Chinese community should be blamed solely on opposition party DAP at its “supporters”.

When DAP leaders took to the front stage of Bersih and when individuals, whether DAP members or not stepped on PAS president Hadi Awang’s photo or burned hell notes to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak; the natural Malay perception is that ‘Ini Cina sudah melampau’ and the blame is on the entire Chinese community.

“We are saying that it should be ‘Ini DAP sudah melampau’ and to leave the Chinese out (of the dispute),” said MCA central committee member Ti Lian Ker in a statement today.

He alleged it was DAP, not the Chinese, who are “picking on Hadi and perpetually belittling Najib or the First Lady of Malaysia Rosmah Mansor”.

“It is MCA’s duty to draw a line and dissociate the Chinese from being associated with DAP leaders’ antics or their sympathisers (whether a member or not) before Hadi’s or Najib’s supporters retaliate and pick on the Chinese in their political ire […],” he said.

“MCA does not want a repeat of May 13th or Low Yat Plaza melee, e.t.c. whereby innocent Chinese are picked on indiscriminately by other extremist groups in retaliation to a perceived Chinese act.

Gan fires back at Liow’s MCA as ‘dead man walking’

September 5, 2015

Former deputy minister says party chief should stand up against BN insults of community

KUALA LUMPUR: Former deputy minister Gan Ping Siew has fired back at MCA president Liow Tiong Lai, blaming him for causing the party to become a “dead man walking”.

Gan had come under fire from Liow for being critical of MCA’s support of Prime Minister Najib Razak and had suggested that the PM take leave while investigations continued into 1Malaysia Development Bhd.

He said the party was now viewed with contempt and regarded as irrelevant, not only by Chinese voters but also by Barisan Nasional coalition parties.

“We still had about 15% of Chinese support (before Liow took over as MCA president) now we will be lucky to have 5%,” Gan said, according to Malaysia Insider.

He said Liow should be telling his BN colleagues not to use hurtful words against the senior ethnic Chinese party and the Chinese community. Liow was “a nice man” but political leadership requires making hard decisions instead of being a crowd pleaser.

Liow had been quoted as saying that Gan, a former MCA vice-president, had “lost the BN spirit” and was merely trying to gain publicity in making his criticism of Najib.
