MCA CC: No to second EGM...

The MCA Central Committee has rejected the proposed second extraordinary general meeting on Nov 28, called by renegade Vice-president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

The annoucement was made by party president Datuk Seri On Tee Keat after a four-hour meeting in the party HQ yesterday.

In an unprecedented move, Datuk Seri Ong also announced the removal of MCA Youth chief Dr Dr Wee Ka Song and Wanita chief Datuk Paduka Chiew Mei Fan and seven leaders aligned to Datuk Seri Liow.

The seven included ex-organising secretary Gan Hong Su and ex-MCA informationchief Lee Wei Kiat. (The six new faces in the MCA council: read here )

The reshuffle was made under Article 46 of the MCA constitution.

KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA central committee (CC) has, in a majority decision, rejected the second extraordinary general meeting (EGM) planned for Nov 28.

The decision was made during its meeting chaired by party president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat yesterday.

Twenty-three of the 35 central committee members present voted against the EGM, while 10 agreed to it. Two members abstained.

“We will inform the central delegates of the central committee decision,” Ong told reporters after the meeting.

He added that the central committee rejected the second EGM because the motions were against the party constitution.

Also in dispute was the notice of the meeting.

On Nov 6, three central committee — Wong Nai Chee, Datuk Wee Jeck Seng and Datuk Liew Yuen Keong — requisitioned for a second EGM to pave the way for fresh party elections.

The group wanting the second EGM is said to be aligned to vice-president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek had on Monday advised all the 2,380 central delegates not to attend the Nov 28 EGM.

He added that the party headquarters would write to the delegates and explain to them why the resolutions — to call for fresh election for the CC and to nullify any appointments or dismissals made by the party president after Oct 10 — were against the party constitution.

Dr Chua added that the three requisitionists had been asked to amend the resolutions but they did not do so. The Star

Mr. Ong is just too smart for Liow and company.Liow Loh!Anyway, a lot of Malaysians do respect Mr. Ong for his actions so far with regard to the PKFTZ scandals.The public perception is that Liow and Company are being used by the previous MCA leaders..whose intentions are plain for all to see...i.e. for the PKFTZ scandal to be swept under the carpet.

Dear W's broo,

So now you know where I live. Even if there was no mee rebus, you are welcome to drop by,

We havent had mrt for quite sometime - since the beginning of the fasting month.

We had twice after Ramadhan. But I have stopped holding the weekly MRT since taking over the role of a fulltime nanny to my two young grandchildren...whose "bibi" left them and ran away with her Pakistani boyfriend.

Mrt will resume, I hope, once they get a new bibi.
