Can MCA resolve its crisis internally?

Chinese community termed the MCA internal crisis as unfortunate.

It seemed that MCA had not learnt any lessons from its past mistakes and always repeats the same mistakes.

Ironically, it is strongly believe that the 60-year-old party MCA was incapable of solving its own internal crisis through its own internal mechanism. At the MCA's extraordinary general meeting (EGM), 1,155 of the 2,304 central delegates passed a vote of no-confidence against its president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.

The EGM also passed a resolution to reinstate suspended Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek's membership albeit rejecting the motion to restore him as the party's No. 2.

The two leaders said they accepted the outcome of the EGM. Following that, the party's powerful central committee (CC) had met to discuss the latest development and the next course of action for the party. It is claimed that CC had never asking the President to step down.

However, Ong Tee Keat refused to resign as party president despite losing a confidence vote. Vise President Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai was appointed deputy president of MCA after a heated central committee meeting. He had at loggerheads with Ong Tee Keat who says he will now call for another EGM.

Undeniably, it was not easy for Ong and Liow to find a compromise because Liow was not keen for a fresh party election while Ong would prefer fresh party election to get endorsement from the delegates to continue as the party president.

Initially, members of MCA thought that Ong Tee Keat would be a good and capable president, but within a year of taking office, he was as bad as all the rest, it shows how absolute power corrupts absolutely.

The question arises: Can MCA resolve its political crisis internally?
