Tee Keat, the last respectable MCA politician?
YOURSAY | ‘His departure confirms that MCA is incompatible with courage and righteousness.’
2 Cents: Until his recent departure from MCA, former transport minister Ong Tee Keat was the only MCA politician that I respected because of his courage and righteousness.
I guess his departure confirms that MCA is incompatible with courage and righteousness. That explains why I have a lot of respect for Ong, but not MCA as a party or anyone within the party other than he.
Analliar: He was a sincere person, with a personality unsuited to MCA. He really has a heart for Chinese culture.
Demi Rakyat: Ong is the only MCA president who had some integrity. The rest, and especially the current one, are useless and hopeless.
Keturunan Malaysia: Ong, I do not know your reasons for quitting MCA and neither do I want to know.
I was a life member of MCA for a long time, but quit some 20 years ago. When you have had enough is one thing, but having more than enough of MCA is another.
Like Umno, MIC and Gerakan, MCA is not the same MCA that it had been once upon a time in terms of values and principles and everything in between.
Anonymous #19098644: Decent people have no role or position in any of the parties within the allegedly corrupt Umno/BN coalition. If you are not part of the corrupt gang, then you will be deemed to be an obstacle to the greedy, corrupted regime.
Tee Keat was one of the more decent people to have emerged from MCA.
Worldly Wise: Ong ‘s reason for resigning from the party is most probably personal dissatisfaction over some matter.
In order to be kind to him, it could also be wishful thinking to believe that he resigned because he was dissatisfied that money in 1MDB that has not been accounted for.
Fair&Just: The kleptocrat is perhaps not happy with Ong since he allowed the exposure of Port Klang Free Zone’s (PKFZ) loss of billions of ringgit and related allegations of corruption.

Ex-president: Given a choice, I would erase my history in MCA
Adrian Wong Published 3 Mar 2017, 8:05 pm
He was once MCA president and transport minister. He exposed corruption in the allocation for Chinese schools and the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal. And the list continues.
However, when Ong Tee Keat quit MCA in January, there were no news reports on this.
The matter only became public this week, when a Chinese daily got wind of his resignation and contacted him for confirmation.
In an interview with Malaysiakini, Ong provides the answers.
From the onset, it was evident that Ong no longer cared about MCA, and revealed that the feeling appeared to be mutual, since none had attempted to dissuade him from quitting.
He also does not want to be remembered in MCA.
“Nobody asked me to stay. First of all, I don’t need and don’t care about others asking me to stay.
“I don’t wish for them to remember me,” Ong retorted when asked how he would like to be remembered.
“If given a choice, I would rather erase the history of my presence in MCA, including all the things I had done. Right or wrong, let the people judge me,” he added.
