Chua Soi Lek is an opportunist and a lousy one at that. He is also a political coward. If the central delegates of MCA in the forthcoming EGM listen to this desperate man, it will be the end of MCA.

This opportunist has come out with a manifesto with the stupid slogan, The 3Rs – Reject, Reunite and Rejuvenate – in an attempt to garner support for his bid to oust Ong Tee Keat and hijack MCA for his true political masters!

Forget all the political noise and use common sense to evaluate this politician’s ugly ambitions.

Forget also his escapades. Zoom in on one factor and one factor only.

What is this factor?


At the last MCA elections for the leadership of the MCA, this opportunist had a deal with another Mr. Chua who was once the Minister of Health. It was agreed that Chua Jui Meng would take on Ong Tee Keat for President, while Chua Soi Lek would vie merely for the Deputy President post. On paper, the two C-partnership was a formidable team, but they overlooked the fact that CCs just don’t carry any weight!

If Chua Soi Lek had the genuine desire to reform MCA and the vision to transform MCA, he should have challenged Ong Tee Keat after Ong Ka Ting resigned as President.

The sad fact was that he did not. He did not have the courage of his convictions to take a stand and challenge Ong Tee Keat.

The cunning Chua Soi Lek goaded Chua Jui Meng to take on Ong Tee Keat knowing that Jui Meng would lose. In fact, Chua Soi Lek ensured the defeat of Chua Jui Meng when his supporters did not vote for Jui Meng. But Jui Meng was na├»ve enough to believe that in exchange for his supporters’ votes to Soi Lek, the latter would also deliver his block of votes. But it was not to be and as they say, the rest is history.

Chua Soi Lek’s game plan was to be elected as Deputy President, and when the time is ripe, launch a coup against Ong Tee Keat.

Can anyone trust a leader as devious as Chua Soi Lek? Why have a manifesto now? Why not during the party elections?

He wants to reunite and rejuvenate the MCA, but the means he has adopted have divided the rank and file and sowed mistrust.

Chua Soi Lek is a pariah and he should be treated as such.

A better 3Rs slogan would be Reject, Reject and Reject Chua Soi Lek!
