MCA Deputy President and former Health Minister Chua Soi Lek has been appointed the BN coordinator in the four (or is it five) opposition controlled states. This was announced by PM Najib at the BN Supreme Council meeting held today.

With the appointment, Chua Soi Lek is suppose to coordinate all BN activities in Kedah, Pulau Pinang, Selangor and Kelantan supposedly, with the view to strengthening the coalition's effort at gainning back popular support for the BN. The question asked is why Chua Soi Lek? Why not another person? Or is this a way of making Chua Soi Lek look important, after having been sidelined for a Senatorship, despite being MCA's Deputy President?

I just do not know how the BN party members will react in the four opposition controlled states. But one thing is clear to me i.e. Chua's 'smeared past' can be exploited by the opposition, who would claim that the BN is already 'scrapping the bottom', and can no longer find a 'cleaner person' to lead the charge in the four opposition controlled states. And I am quite certain, the opposition will be mocking Chua during his rounds in the states.

Personally, I think the appointment of Chua as BN's coordinator is inappropriate and untimely. Will the BN give a thought to my comments, or is the BN fully confident of Chua's ability to perform in his new found appointment?

I was told that Chua left the meeting without saying a word.

Being a coordinator does not mean candidate.

He needs to remain relevant politically.

There is nothing to it.

The Chinese are very practical people.They don't judge people by their personal matter.What matters to them, the leader must be able to deliver the goods.

I think Chua has the personality to win back MCA supporters which have deserted the party in the last election.

Not that this man can't work, but his personal life record is a liability, he can be shot down time and again AT HOME.

Better to be a Foreign Minister, at least got some credibility and brains!
