When a party president gets so powerful...

Ong Tee Keat and his Central Committee has sacked deputy president Chua Soi Lek over his sex-scandal which rocked Malaysian politics last year. However, he was permitted to contest and no.2 post and won.

A party president is so powerful in Malaysia. Look what happened to PPP when Kayveas sacked Senator T. Murugiah recently for trying to 'topple' him. Samy Velly did almost the same thing to Subramaniam and his followers who were accused of wanting to 'bring him down'.

So powerful they are!

It applies in Umno, too. Long ago, Tengku Abdul Rahman sacked Dr Mahathir over his 'Malay Dilemma'. If not for the late Tun Razak, Dr M would not have made it to the party presidency and prime minister.

In MCA, the parting eposide between Ong and Chua started right from day one both won their respestive party positions. Ong want somebody else to become his deputy, not Chua whom he described as a 'pain in the arse'.

Politics need teaming, I suppose. I have observed this in Umno and other parties, including those in Sarawak and Sabah. If one does not come under the boss favor (stop talking about being a good person and doing good jobs), out he goes.

So, Chua. Maybe you could consider joining your other clan brother Chua Jui Meng who opted for Parti Keadilan Rakyat two months ago... or thinking about a splinter group, just like Gerakan and MCA about 30 years ago... or selling VCDs and other business?

Come to think about it, having parties like PKR, DAP and others are also good. Politics are dirty, alrite but so many people are after it.

hahaha... berani kau suruh soi lek jual vcd. kau nak mampus ke jai?

tapi kan, aku setuju. semua presiden parti politik di malaysia ni akan nakkan team yang dia suka je.

yg mana dia tak suka, sure kena tekan punya.

yang tak eloknya, ketua bahagian pun akan tentukan siapa patut jadi ketua cawangan.

betul tak?

ONG IS ANOTHER DICTATOR! IN THE FIRST PLACE, WHY LET CHUA CONTESTED THE DEPUTY PRESIDENT POST ONLY TO BE REMOVED LATER ON?

THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!

Hello! My name is Wai and I'm currently conducting a research on citizen journalism in Malaysia for my thesis. I was hoping that you could grant me a short Q & A interview because I would like to glean more information about Malaysia's blogosphere. Please contact me at kwyeng@gmail.com. Hope to hear from you soon! Thanks :)

an absurd move by tee keat. if he didnt want him, why in the first place let him contest, win and then be sacked?

Have you read the unabridged version of 'Malay Dilemma'? A mamak talking about Malay supremacy and telling royalty to bugger off from their own land!

The mamak has raped our country and our hard earned money via taxes and he is not even mentioned as a powerful party president..
