Like former UMNO president Najib Razak, MCA president Liow Tiong Lai is game over. After losing his Bentong constituency in the recent general election, it shows Mr. Liow has performed worse than his deputy, Wee Ka Siong. Not even his drama – playing badminton with superstar Lee Chong Wei and AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes – could help him retain Bentong.


Liow Tiong Lai has been, arguably, the worst MCA president the Chinese-based party has ever produced since its establishment. Last year, with just months before the 14th general election is called, around 6,000 people had been expected to attend the “Better Beer Festival”, showcasing craft beers from at least 11 countries. It was shut down.


Islamic party PAS accused it as “pesta maksiat (vice party)”, claiming that it would turn Kuala Lumpur into the “largest vice centre in Asia”. Najib administration, desperate for the support from the extreme and radical PAS party, agreed to pull the plug on the annual beer festival. Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohamad Fuzi Harun obediently disallowed the festival.

MCA President Liow Tiong Lai - Better No Beer For Chinese Than No Contract For Self

The police chief conveniently claimed he had received information that militants planned to “disturb the event”. The funny part about the huff and puff cooked up by the previous government was the fact that the beer festival was only applicable to non-Muslims. The Muslims were not invited. In fact, Muslims were prohibited from the beer festival.


When the minority non-Muslims, especially the Chinese, had nowhere to turn but to MCA, its president Liow Tiong Lai failed miserably. He didn’t lift a finger to protect the Chinese right for a pint or two. Already known as a corrupt lapdog, Mr. Liow quickly agreed with then-premier Najib Razak and the beer festival was cancelled, much to the anger of fans of beer.


The beer festival fiasco was just one of many examples of continuous discrimination, suppression and oppression against the Malaysian Chinese. From seven parliamentary seats, the MCA was slaughtered on May 9th by the same community it claimed to represent, reducing the Malaysian Chinese Association to just one seat, its worst since founded in 1949.

Wee Ka Siong - Cry Like A Baby After Lost Power

PKFZ Scandal How Cost SkyRocket

With Liow Tiong Lai out of the picture, the ambitious Deputy President Wee Ka Siong has made his plan known to contest the party’s top post during the party polls in November. But Mr. Wee is no better than his boss Mr. Liow. Wee is known as the “Cry Baby Wee” who burst into tears after being dropped from MCA presidential council by the party’s president – Ong Tee Keat in 2009.


Don’t be fooled by Wee’s eloquent in Malay, Mandarin and English though. Together with Bintulu Mafia Chief Tiong King Sing, Mr. Wee became billionaire looting and plundering taxpayers’ money in the PKFZ scandal. Yes, if Najib Razak has his 1MDB scandal, Wee Ka Siong’s pet project was PKFZ. So far, the RM12 billion PKFZ scandal has turned into one with no culprits.


But it will not going to be a walk in the park for Wee Ka Siong in his attempt to be crowned as MCA next president. Former vice-president Gan Ping Sieu has confirmed his intention to contest for the post too. The young Gan will be no match to the super-rich and cunning Wee. Another president-wannabe Yew Teong Look, the biggest MCA gangster, is rumoured to be interested too.

Chua Soi Lek - former MCA President 2

None of those candidates have a remote chance of beating Wee except Chua Soi Lek who was implicated in a sex tape scandal in 2008 but mounted a comeback to become MCA president in 2010. Following MCA’s horrible performance in the 2013 general elections, Mr. Chua has kept silence and went into political exile after Liow Tiong Lai took over the party.


Little did Chua know that his leadership that brought the party to the laughable 7-11 (7 parliamentary seats and 11 state seats) wasn’t that disastrous after all. His successor, Liow, would lead the party to a more pathetic and humiliating defeat 5 years down the road – winning only 1 parliamentary and 2 state seat – and becomes the opposition for the first time since independence in 1957.


MCA grassroots are pretty excited about the rumours that their former president Chua may make a comeback to lead them. Mocked and insulted as a “sex actor”, Mr. Chua was setup by both Wee Ka Siong and Liow Tiong Lai, and the grassroots knew it. The four-star Hotel Katerina in quiet Batu Pahat was the place where Chua Soi Lek engaged in an extra-marital affair with a young woman.

MCA President Chua Soi Lek - Sex DVD Scandal - Admission

Chua’s mistake was bonking his “woman friend” – Ms Angela Yam – in the same hotel in the same room for convenience sake. Four cameras hidden in the suite recorded him having sex without his knowledge. The scumbags Wee and Liow, after recorded their president with his pants down, would later make copies and distributed the video for all and sundry to enjoy.


Inspired by the return of 93-year-old Mahathir Mohamad as the prime minister for the second time, Chua may just do the same. Amusingly, some MCA grassroots still admire their ex-president. Unlike “cry baby” Wee, Chua’s courage in admitting to being the person in the sex video 10 years ago in 2008 before resigning, was quite legendary and commendable.


Interestingly, Chua Soi Lek was one of Najib’s biggest supporters during the peak of 1MDB scandal in 2015. When former MCA president Ling Liong Sik parroted his former boss (Mahathir), agreeing that “Najib has taken peoples’ money and put it in his own personal accounts”, Chua came to Najib’s defence in 2015 – claiming that the PM was the only leader who had pledged to fund MCA.

 PM Najib Razak Provides Script Editing Service to Sex Scandal Chua Soi Lek

The best part came when Chua Soi Lek subsequently revealed that Prime Minister Najib Razak had helped in the drafting of the speech from which the MCA leader read out on television admitting he was the person in the sex video, which by then had circulated in the form of DVDs. Chua said – “He thought I wrote it in a way that was too rigid, (so) he edited it for me.


Yes, like two good friends in a primary school, Chua had nothing but praises for Najib for helping with his homework – editing and finetuning an admission speech over the sex scandal. The MCA leader tried very hard to market Najib as a kind-hearted person who would help friends in trouble. It’s not hard to understand why Najib was more than willing to help Chua.


In 1995, the then-Defence Minister Najib Razak was allegedly caught “khalwat” with his pants down with actress Ziana Zain in a Port Dickson hotel room.  If witness Balasubramaniam’s Statutory Declaration is reliable, Mr. Najib had performed anal intercourse with Mongolian beauty Altantuya, before she was murdered by his military bodyguards.

However, unlike Najib, Wee or Liow, Chua was a very brave man who not only admitted to extra-marital affair, he had also gone on stage to debate with then-opposition DAP Lim Guan Eng. In comparison, PM Najib Razak had chickened out numerous times in debates or questionnaire session, including his owned-organised “Nothing to Hide (#Nothing2Hide)” forum.


In truth, Wee Ka Siong can do very little to rejuvenate MCA. He is seen as a coward or eunuch who dared not stood up to UMNO’s years of bullying. The party desperately needs young and new talents. More importantly, it lacks a courageous leader to drive them to a new direction. So far, Mr. Wee has nothing new to offer. Mr. Chua could become MCA president again.
