I read with interest 2 articles in Malaysiakini today, one is by Stanley Koh and the other by my friend Ong Kian Meng. The former wrote the article “MCA drowns in ocean of disgust” and the latter wrote a very good analysis “Making sense of the political tsunami”.
I would like to call upon the leadership of MCA to disband the party and turn it into a multiracial one , possibly merge with Parti Gerakan, since it has lost its relevance as the representative of Chinese Malaysian.
Out of the 40 seats it has contested, it won only 15 seats and majority of which are Malay majority seats, with just a few exception.
It cannot claim to be representative of the Chinese Malaysian anymore.
By disbanding the race based party, it will lead the way for UMNO and MIC to disband and hence herald the beginning of the end of race based politics in Malaysia.
If their leaders really care for the ountry and the future generations of Malaysian, it should take the lead in doing away with race based politics.
