I have expected the sacking of MCA Deputy President Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek by the party disciplinary board and was endorsed party presidential council. Chua was found guilty of tarnishing the party’s image for his sex DVD scandal last year. I believe the decision taken by the party is correct, and despite him being the party Deputy President does not make him immune to party disciplinary action.
MCA leaders have certainly set the right examples for its leaders to follow and makes no compromises. And this is where the difference lies between MCA and UMNO where the latter is known to have different set of disciplinary rules for different people who have committed a similar offence and is found guilty. This was evident during the last party elections where the party disciplinary board decision against those found guilty for money politics is different between individuals. Whatever the reasons given, it does not make sense to me.
We also had a case of a senior UMNO politician who was accused of fondling the ‘back’ of a lady waitress reportedly in a hotel, and although the victim did not launch a police report (for unknown reason), the case was therefore not investigated by the party disciplinary board. Yet the case was reported in several print media. And can we not see the difference in how MCA and UMNO treats a sexual related case involving its party member? And mind you, in the case of the MCA, it is the party’s Deputy President and in the case on UMNO, it is just a Member of Parliament. And what amuses me is that the UMNO member is being rewarded and is appointed to a prestigious diplomatic post in some foreign land. This UMNO member must be someone of great influence, as if there is no other better person to take up the diplomatic post. And let us hope he behaves himself while he is overseas.
And in another case, the MCA President Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat is now embroiled in a war of words over the controversial PKFZ project issue with an MCA Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing. Here again, we see that MCA makes no compromises in issues affecting the good name of the party, regardless of the parties involved. I just wonder if it is UMNO that is involved in the controversial PKFZ project; will the party leadership have acted the way MCA President did? Your guess is as good as mine.
