welcome back, Eli Wong

I welcome Eli Wong’s decision to continue as Adun and Exco of Selangor. This is a brave decision, since by continuing in her current position, she is expected to face lots of pressure from the other side.

I also think that Khalid Ibrahim is right to reject her resignation, and it is also a brave move, since I am sure he is facing tremendous pressure from some of his own party people to drop Wong. There is intense internal politicking in PKR too from what I was told.

I hope that all sides should give her a chance to get her life back again. For the sake of the people in her constituencies, let her function as their representatives. I also hope that whoever was behind the first leak would not resort to publish any more photos, if there are others as rumoured, since she has already gone through hell.

As I have said before, there must be certain decency even in politics.. In the old days, before 2 armies attacked each other, they would send ‘battle letter’ to inform the other side when and where they would like to fight..

    The photos may be a blight to her resume but her character remains unblemished. Stay firm Eli, the People will be your judge and they want you where you are.

    Yeah…based on comments in rocky’s blog, many ppl arent too happy. Haiz…who are we to judge. Hope she has learned her lesson too and not trust anyone. Since she has accepted the posts, she should try and live her life in a moral way to avoid such incidents again. This is still Malaysia…not America.

    A moral justification has to be substantiated with relevant rhetorics and arguments. Very often, people with myopic mindset just a person/an action/an incident subjective and, as a result, create non-sensible perceptions to it. Even worse, such views are propogated via mass media, leading to a consequence of which subjective perception determines the outcome.

    Sleeping nude in one own’s bedroom is immoral? What are the justifications behind this then? As long as things are kept private, other’s opinion of accusing her as immoral is an violation of privacy in my point of view.

    I do not see the location of the country as a point to conclude that such an act is immoral.

    I admire Eli’s courage to continue her role as an Adun and Exco.

    Infringement of one’s privacy is in itself, immoral, and anyone should not succumb to such immoral acts.

    All I can say here is that we are responsible to our own actions. We observe our own morality, not for others to judge.

    Cilipadi,

    what if she deliberately allow her privacy to be infringe…

    Isn’t that the reason why muslim women need to cover up herself from head to toe….

    without her consent, nobody are able to take her pictures in a bedroom….

    Eli’s own morality is questionable… and that is the issue here…

    chinseng,

    Haha, that I cannot answer you, and it is not appropriate for anyone to ask ‘what if…’

    Infringement of one’s privacy is in itself, immoral, that is my stand and I believe you would agree to this also.

    To me, Eli is a victim of such immoral act of others.

    You learn fast indeed.

    I see this Zul Noordin as shedding crocodile tears in his response to Eli’s come back. On one hand, he said this and on the other hand, he said that.

    I see this as the weakest link in Pakatan Rakyat-PKR where PKR still has the element of those “ultras” among its members. No doubt, PKR is crucial in forming the partnership in PR, it is also a deadly acupoint in PR.

    The best way to neutralise this deadly acupoint is for PR, in particularly PKR to be more transparent in its functioning instead of hiding the weakness points. Rakyat are more willingly in accepting your weaknesses if you practise transparency instead of secrecy.

    Rakyat’s eyes are clear. PR should have nothing to hide.
