Chua reinstated, Liow Objects


EGM has been held, Chua has been ousted, Liow become the new Deputy President, what’s next? Chua reinstated as Deputy President.

This is the chronology of the MCA’s leadership crisis when Chua remains as the Party’s Deputy President by Registrar of Societies (ROS). According to ROS, Chua still the Deputy President because it is clearly stated in the MCA’s constitution (Article 35) that 2/3 majority is needed to vacant the seat. During the EGM, the vote of no confidence is still not enough even majority of the delegates has spoken wants to ousted Chua as the Deputy President.

Meanwhile, Liow has been announced as the party’s Vice President. Firm in his decision, Liow wants to challenge ROS decision. He said that the ROS decision was illegal. He currently downgraded as the party’s Vice President again. If Chua reinstatement stand, Liow shall be the shortest serving Deputy President in MCA’s history --- 19 days!

"Since my appointment was done in full compliance of the party constitution, I reserve my right to challenge the ROS and seek a court declaration to declare the ROS decision null and void." (source)

The party president, Ong Tee Keat on the other hand, using his capacity as MCA President to sacks four central committees aligned to Liow Tiong Lai. This move has been seen as his way to tighten his grip to the party and to serve as a warning to detractors.

BN meanwhile accepted Chua position as the Deputy President because it has been confirmed by ROS.

Shall this event led to another EGM?
