Ahh....just look at the tearful pleas by Chew and Wee. Pic by Malaysiakini
On October 27, MCA's third force, comprising of Liow Tiong Lai, Chew Mei Fun and Wee Kah Siong with the other Dirty Dozen showed in Liow's press conference, revealing themselves that were hitting out at party president Ong Tee Keat. An article on Malaysia Today revealed the remaining dirty dozen, which includes deputy ministers like Chor Chee Heung.
Today, Ong has removed another 5 more people from the the presidential council. Most of the people removed are indeed behind Liow and Ong has hit the bonus today by removing the so called man behind Liow's call - Wee Ka Siong. As mentioned previously alleged by Robert Phang, Wee was the one who arranged for Ong to go on Tiong King Sing's private jet. Indeed the whole idea of Liow coming in from the back door was Wee's idea. Perhaps Ong was now aware that Wee was trying to put PKFZ under the carpet and was behind the whole thing.
The additional people removed in addition to Wee and Chew were Wee Jeck Seng, Lee Wei Kiat, and Ho Kok Chung - all Liow's men. However, there are still 5 people remaining including Liow. One from Ka Ting's camp, two from Kong Choy's camp and the other one is Malacca's Gan Tian Loo.
From Ka Ting's Camp - Yu Chok Tow
From Kong Choy's Camp - Pahang Division chairman Hoh Khai Mun, Wong Siong Hwee
As Liow said, Ong's move was called slash and burn. Officially, it's a mere reshuffle, unofficially, Ong is removing those who trying to take him out from being MCA president. Indirectly, he is also sending a warning to Tiong not to screw him, particularly with his closest buddies, Chor and Wee.
All I can say, that's a smart move of hitting the real people out. But it ain't finished yet.
