No fresh polls for MCA

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Chew Mei Fun said today she would not resign as the Wanita MCA chief as it would not have any impact on the fresh elections the party is to hold to resolve its leadership crisis.

She also said she did not believe that the postponement of the fresh elections was due to her reluctance or that of MCA Youth chief Dr Wee Ka Siong to resign from their posts.

A simple logic tells us if she and her supporters resigned, MCA will fulfill the requirement of two-thirds of the CC members having to resign to allow for fresh elections to be held.

MCA required eight more resignation, so far only 13 CC members, among them MCA vice-president and Health Minister Liow Tiong Lai, Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Wee Jeck Seng and Deputy Higher Education Minister Dr Hou Kok Chung, have handed in undated resignation letters to party secretary-general Wong Foon Meng to pave the way for the fresh elections.

The question arises: Why Chew Mei Fun does not want to resign to pave the way for a contest?
