"The MCA presidential council has decided to accept the disciplinary board’s decision to expel party deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
The presidential council reached the decision after a more than five-hour meeting at Wisma MCA here on Wednesday night.
Earlier Wednesday, Dr Chua told reporters at Wisma MCA that the disciplinary board had recommended that he be sacked from the party.
“As a loyal party man, I have to abide by the decision of the disciplinary board and the presidential council,” he told reporters..........."
Why?! Well it is sure is a fine time for, MCA, a staunch branch of the BN to decide to sack its deputy-president, Dr Chua Soi Lek, when BN component parties are supposed to be strenghtening their position in facing the next general elections!
Sacking him will definitely have a serious political ramification to the BN.
It is as though MCA is in cahoot with the opposition in trying to undermine the Malay upper hand in governing the country, by subtly "giving way" to its deputy president "to join" Pakatan by "sacking" him.
But, of course Soi Lek said "No" when asked whether he might join another party, be it DAP or Pakatan. What do you expect him to say.
Reporters also asked the same question ot Chua Jui Ming remember?!
My take is if MCA disciplinary committee has any sense at all it should have initiated the sacking of its the far-right born again Chinese leader Ong Tee Kiat.
When BN is trying to take stock and replenish its political fortune, now we have one of its partner playing funny political game!
Just a thought.
