A big "Yes" for MCA Unity Plan

MCA's Greater Unity Plan has received a big endorsement when 70 per cent of the party's 191 division chiefs and leaders turned up at a central leadership briefing yesterday and gave their support.

The three-hour briefing by deputy president Datuk Dr Chua Soi Lek was attended by 151 divisions.

The Unity Plan, drawn by Party President Datuk Ong Tee Keat and Datuk Dr Chua and endorsed by Barisan Nasional Chairman and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, is opposed by a faction led by vice-president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

Datuk Liow and his key supporters Youth Chief Datuk Ser Wee Ka Siong, and Wanita Chief Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun were notbly absent at the briefing.

He, however, has described the MCA Greater Unity Plan briefing as being disrespectful of the party's extraordinary general meeting decisions on Oct 10 during which the delegates had voted against Datuk Dr Chua from being reinstated as deputy president and had also gave a vote of no confidence against Datuk Ser Ong Tee Keat as president.

At a press conference, Datuk Chua said the high turn-out showed their concern over unity in the party, and "their level of support can be regarded as high."

On the Nov 28 extraordinary general meeting (EGM)- which was among five topics dicussed - called by the faction backing Datuk Seri Liow to seek fresh party elections, Datuk Chua said they had indicated that they would not be attending.

Dauk Ong, who was present, vowed to hold a fresh election but on the condition that MCA attains stability first by implementing the unity plan.
