MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting and deputy Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy will not defend their posts at the party's elections later this year.
Let's not discuss who will take over. Talk about possibilities, instead.
After a poor showings in the 12th general elections, Ong took up full responsibility by turning down any Cabinet position. Such a gentleman!
The latest decision may trigger alarm in the Barisan Nasional. Ong and Chan may have anticipated more problems if Pak Lah's government continues to loose footing. The challenges from the Opposition is getting more ferocious.
Should they stay as party leaders, they will be answerable again if the 13th general elections turn out to be more destructive for BN.
MCA is BN's strongest ally, next to Umno. If Umno and its leaders are getting weaker in the sense that more discontentment is brought up every now and then, may as well just leave it to Pak Lah and his team to manage as long as the thin ice doesnt melt.
Or, is something not right about MCA team-up in BN?
