MCA unity plan endorsed, Liow sidelined. MCA Revolutionary Committee is the last choice?

As we know yesterday, the so-called MCA unity plan was endorsed in a close door session held yesterday at the MCA hearquarters by the party's central delegates who were present. The question here is, is this move a democratic one? Why not have it endorsed in the coming party annual general assembly due to be held on early December next month?

And then the party deputy president Dr Chua Soi Lek also told the delegates not to attend the proposed extraordinary general meeting (EGM) called by former deputy president Datuk Liow Tiong Lai who now leads the MCA Integrity Restoration Task Force who wanted to reclaim his deputy presidency at all cost.

The MCA leadership crisis almost similar to the one happenned in the Chinese Kuomintang (KMT), where the other reform faction later formed the KMT Revolutionary Committee in Hong Kong and move back to China immediately after the country's civil war.

We would like to advise Datuk Liow and his faction, if you all really sincere about reform and democracy in the party, do not waste your time with this power struggle as you will not win it anyway. Follow the steps of the reform KMT leaders by moving out and establish the MCA Revolutionary Committee in order to move on with your "real political reform agenda" from there effectively.

The problem here is, are Datuk Liow, Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong, Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun, Datuk Chor Chee Heung and Wong Nai Chee bold enough to give up their respective government positions to materialise the MCA Revolutionary Committee to speed up their reform agenda and fight to be heard from outside BN fold?

If they really have their guts to do so, we are certain the Chinese community will support them of their courage. But again, the problem, will dare enough to do so?
