He wants to be the boss. As to whether others like it or not, he will not compromise. He practices corporate and legalistic entity - anything he says or does rule.
That's Ronnie Liu. He likes to pull his own trigger.
He jumps on Lim Kit Siang, Karpal Singh, Lim Guan Eng and even Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim, making decisions for DAP and PKR. To him, he must has the big say, just like his big mouth.
He doesn't care what other people or his comrades think about him. Given time and opportunity, he got the potential to jump to the party's top flight very, very soon. His supporters like his style, and of course they are looking forward to the day when he becomes the DAP boss.
To become the big boss, he must start from now. He himself must make decision on what others usually decide on consensus. He must have some strong grips from now on.
And so, as the Selangor executive councillor for local councils, Ron takes it all by himself. He chooses who should come in or goes out.
Latest, some people accused him of amending the finalised list of
DAP's local councillors which has been endorsed by the state DAP.
In making the claim, former Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) councillor,
K. Yogasigamany urged party secretary-general Guan Eng to step in
immediately to resolve the issue and revamp the state DAP leadership.
Yogasigamany alleged that the appointment of DAP's local councillors
was tainted with cronyism and nepotism by appointing cronies who were
incompetent, uneducated and illiterate. He had served as MBSA councillor
between July 2010 and February this year.
"I was unceremoniously dumped although I was endorsed for
re-appointment (as Shah Alam councillor) by the Selangor DAP committee. Instead, I was appointed as Selayang Municipal Council councillor,
which I rejected," he said.
Yogasigamany said he was informed by DAP Selangor committee member V.
Ganapathi Rao, that he was replaced by Prakash Rao, believed to be a
relative of Ganapathi, who had helped Ronnie in organising the party's
1,000 table charity dinner in Pandamaran, recently.
But I don't think Ron is giving a damn about such an allegation. This 'big guy' is DAP's kingmaker. Each time he decides on anything, his bosses will have to approve.
