MCA in Pakatan Rakyat controlled states/ 写给在野的马华同志

人民联盟掌政槟城、吉打、霹雳、雪兰莪和吉兰丹后,这5州的马华组织士气和斗志萎靡,当地的马华领袖和党员陷入有史以来最低潮。马华从独立以来都在扮演执政的角色,瞬间变成在野党,我了解同志们都觉得泄气,一时之间也难以适从,但这一刻马华更加需要你们的支持和拥护,党需要大家团结冷静地渡过和面对这项打挑战。

从今天起,在人民联盟执政州属的马华,要适应和学习做一个称职、实际的反对党,监督和检视州政府的表现,确保他们履行选前立下的宣言和承诺。我们要继续协助解决地方性问题,虽然我承认这不是地方领袖最主要的角色。如我过去所强调,议员不该常年为地方问题疲于奔命,这种现象暴露了政府执行单位的拙劣效率。沟渠、街灯、道路,这都是议员该关注的,但督促和改进地方政府的办事效率,才是治本。

这次惨败也让给我们的代议士一个警惕:不要只为了选举而服务。虽然不在朝,我们也要继续服务民众,监督和批评人民联盟政府,扮演他们以前扮演的角色。
在初时我们或会换来很多人不屑的眼神和反应,但同志们,你们要挺着要坚持,为了民众的利益,我们要化为有效的监督的力量,以实际行动帮助选民,让选民知道马华同志不会逃避责任,败选后就离弃他们。

各位同志,马华经历了有史以来最大的惨败, 大家不该在这个时候选择跳槽。如果不满领导层的领导,我们可以通过党选来决定和寻求改变。而在大选中落败的马华候选人,也无需仓促关闭服务中心,你们其实应该积极栽培接班人,让当地的马华组织能继续强大。马华虽然输了大半江山,但我们不能从此一蹶不振,我们要凭着强稳的组织结构和经验丰富的代表,善用这些优势和资源,改善弱点、继续服务,以重挽民心、扭转局势。

同志们,胜不骄, 败不馁。千万不要因此而灰心。一次失败不代表绝望,让我们从失败中谦卑学习,不断改进。马华要重新被认同,我们则需要改革,与时并进。同志们,让我们从失败的沮丧中苏醒,化悲愤为力量、以下助上重振马华;为了党未来的存荣,让我们一起重整步伐,向前踏步!

For MCA leaders and members in Pakatan Rakyat (PR) controlled states the morale and the fighting spirit will probably be at a low. Now is the time for MCA members to stay united and calm to face this turn of events. Having been in the government since independence and suddenly finding themselves on the opposite side is never a pleasant role to play.

MCA must now adapt to play the role of a proper, functional opposition, i.e to monitor and scrutinise whether PR led governments merely pay lip service to their manifestos or do they really walk the talk.
Local problems will also need to be solved and attended to (although I admit it is not the most important role) because inability to solve basic local problems is a reflection of a poor delivery system on the part of the government. In PR controlled states, we must improve the local delivery system so that there will be no ‘longkang’ wakil rakyats. MCA leaders must continue to serve and play the role of opposition members to point out PR's shortfalls. We must be prepared to criticize the same way the opposition criticized us when we were in government.

As for those who failed as candidates in the recent elections, they should try to groom successors before they hastily close down their service centres. We still have a good organizational structure and committed members and we should tap into these resources so that we continue to serve despite failure at being elected. We must and should serve not only because of elections. We should not think of party hopping during this time when the party needs us most. If we are not happy with the leadership, we can change it in the party election which is few months away from now.

We may meet resistance in providing service and that should spur us on to work harder. So comrades, don’t give up so easily. There is life after defeat. Defeat is a humbling and learning experience. We may be down but we surely learn a lot in times of defeat. So comrades, MOVE ON and ensure that the party changes if we are to remain relevant.

蔡细歷在峇株巴辖以顾问身份受邀出席马华峇株巴辖区会召开的联席会议后,促请党领导层儘快及明確指示,在反对党执政州的马华区会、国州议员、市县议员及村长该如何运作及提供服务。
他认为,马华也有必要检討是否支持恢復地方政府选举制度,以让人民选出为他们服务的市县议员。
他表示,恢復地方政府选举制度向来是反对党的要求,现在我国有5个州属落入人民联盟手中,他们肯定会推荐自己的人选。
他也指出,国阵领袖往后必须懂得做宣传,並且负起监督民盟州政府的工作,学会如何提出疑问、攻击、批评及指责,確保民盟实践竞选期间的诺言。

馬來西亞種族特權政治,已讓馬華與民主行動黨多年來傷盡了腦筋。大家在沒有其他選擇之下,心不甘情不愿的和以馬來人或回教為主的政黨合作。兩黨都處於左右為難的位置,真的哀哉!

難道華族,印族與其他的少數民族,只能低下頭的認命嗎?不,誓不低頭才能讓自己堅強勇敢的活下去!

如要想要改革腐敗,貪婪,昏庸的文化系統,全體馬來同胞一定要配合。 有那么簡單嗎? 這樣的話,國家政策的問題始終都該歸於馬來同胞的身上了。

國家尊嚴可以不要,霸權和特權不可以不要!
自己的尊嚴何在?還死愛面子!
都是誰的錯?誰能告我?

现在到马华要监督民盟政府, 真讽刺啊!! 要那些当初常开空头支票的马华代表监督, 请告诉我凭什么!!

先治身,治家, 再治国。。。。 治好马华内部本身先吧!! 铲除那些贪污, 滥权者!!

怡保豆奶厂地段事件就是一个很好的案件。给人民一个好的交代吧!!接触人民,你会发现类似的事件发生在全马。 我的乡村都有发生,马华的人民代议史帮人民申请地契,到头来地契上的名字却是该代议史的近亲名字!!全村的人都知道,都骂个不停,但马华却从没有任何交待!!

馬華已表明自己的立場,堅持保持於華人利益為主的政黨。馬華在明盟執政的地盤里f,一定要做得比明盟民主行動黨更好,不過會不會再一次又一次被巫統給拖累呢?好自為之!

Dear Dr. Chua,

MCA must faced the reality that they lost in the GE. However, i don't think they learn from this lesson. As for the promises that the candidates gave in the GE, no matter whether lose or win, they must deliver. Although they lost the seats, but they can't lose the respect from the people. As the leader in the party, he/she should tell the party members that, stop all the agrument and it is the time to deliver the promises, in order to build the road for the future or the next GE. They must convince the rakyat that although they lose, but they still deliver the promises. If they still give the promises that only for the GE, i think MCA will be totally out for the next GE..

MCA is good in "jaga longkang" and solving trivial matters such as applying for licence,scholarship and so on..Well,they can continue to do these works while let PR state and MPs to really manage the states under their control.We,who are living in PR controlled states are confident in PR state Assembly men and women's abilities and integrity.We have enough of the BN lead government in our respective states and we sincerely hope MCA and UMNO would not cause any nuisance to our chosen government.

I read and read and read and still dont get it... Sigh.. something is wrong somewhere...Hmmmmm!

Why are MCA members or BN component members for the matter, in those 5 PR states have low morale or fighting spirit? Why ah? No more King of Kings, Lord of Lords in the area and therefore cannot go around bossing people and behaving like a true idiot? Hmmm... strange!

Yes la, what's with the low morale/fighting spirit? The fact of the matter, any parties for the matter, gotta realise that you are there to be of service to the people. Ahbutthan??? So, if your party didnt win, it is very obvious that the service provided is not up to par or is sub-standard. If so, some more want to waste time to feel low morale ah? Merajuk ah? WAKE UP LA!!! get those pretty arses up from that comfy chair and put in a day's worth of decent WORK! Do SWOT, do post mortem on what went wrong. How to counter, how to be better, rectify weaknesses and enhance strength la... Some more continue to be an ass and waste time feeling sorry for ownself!? Some more want to close down service centers? X-files thinking ah!?

Why should MCA or for the matter, any BN component play "policeman" (monitor and scrutinize) in those 5 PR states? What qualifies MCA or any other BN component to play such role? In the first place, it is obvious as the sun will rise from the east every morning that these buggers lost big time because they FCUK up big time. It is not some few hundreds votes lost. It is by the tens of thousands votes ok! So, work produced by BN were lousy but now, BN qualifies itself to play "policeman"? HUH!?? How to play "policeman" when one have no blinking idea what it takes to be a GOOD servant to the people?? No.. behaving like LORD or KING doesnt qualify as good qualities needed for the servant to the people job!

Another thing... what in the world is going on with this theory "BN appointed people should quit their post in 5 PR states"? Eh, let's get one thing correct here. IT IS THE PEOPLE THAT COMES FIRST AND NOT THE PARTY LA!!! NO PEOPLE TO SERVE, NO PARTY LA!

All these fiasco about kampung heads to quit, dun want to quit, force to quit, told to quit, paid to quit their position in the 5 PR states, Lee Kah Choon appointment as duno what by DAP in Penang. AIYAH!!!! still small issit?? "You friend them, you not my friend" WAKE UP CHILDREN!! Any parties, PR or BN or whatever, exist to serve the people and as such, PEOPLE'S INTEREST and CONCERN should be paramount and not party's interest or theory.

Yah, loyalty to the party is important but it shouldnt hinder the essence of having a party i.e. to serve the people. We have to move away from childish mentality. 50 years of independence already! Parties, may it be PR or BN should be mature enough to understand that if the opposition party would like to appoint any of your members, it is not because the opposition have no calibre or being an idiot. It is about getting the best person to do the job well so that people like ME, gets the best! It is also about putting aside own's interest for the sake of others and this! I must say, we should all appreciate.

I really must point out that although PR may not have 50 years of experience or may fumble through everything they want to do in those 5 states, it is very commentable of them to at least try to move away from the old and redundant ways of doing things for the benefit of the people. This Lee Kah Choon fiasco is one of them. I see it as a gracious and selfless act from DAP for the sake of the people in Penang. Can BN be far sighted and gracious!? Can BN look at such act as an opportunity for BN to practise check and balance? Obviously NOT right!?

So, if we are talking about how BN can remain relevant, it is mighty obvious, BN hasnt even started to think! So, BN should stop horsing around and canned that spoilt brat attitude in them and GROW UP!

I write to all my Chinese brothers & sisters that it is well past the time to wind up MCA because the MCA is a Malay party and they will sell their mothers & wifes to obtain a TAN Seri or Dato'ship. What is all this shit about getting this Malay bullshit Dato 'Ship or Tan Seri so that you will need to give your arses to the Malays. The UMNO guys spit on your MCA faces and laugh. We Chinese have been discriminated for 50 years and now for the first time we get a proper Malay leader to lead Malaysia, we must give Dato Seri Anwar all our support. UMNO had been in government for 50 years and the lot of the Chinese had become worse and worse; THE STRATEGY IS FOR ALL CHINESE TO THROW OUR TOTAL SUPPORT TO ANWAR AND GIVE HIM THE CHANCE TO PROVE HIMSELF; IF HE DOES NOT DELIVER THEN WE VOTE OPPOSIUTION AGAIN. This is the way to win respect from the MALAYS. For god's sake my Chinese brothers WHY OFFER YOUR ARSES IF YOU DO NOT NEED TO. You do not need to offer your arses if you vote opposition if and when you are not happy with the government. That is what the vote is for; it is for us to pressure the government whenever they do not do what is best for us.

Forget MCA bullship ! Support Pakatan Rakyat 100% and let MCA die off a natural death.

After going through some of the comments in this blog on the mca bashing, I'm hurt spiritually that the original backbone of the Malaysian Chinese society being spat around like dog dung by the Chinese themselves. Perhaps it is the need for the safeguard of Chinese education and culture are not as important as previously or it's the emotional release of buildup tension of post GE12 of the past impotency of MCA leaders. It is all good to let go some hot air but it also must not carry on for too long where we might even kill the leaders' fighting spirits. These past weeks, our dear OKT have in fact contributed some meaningful comments and I'm sure we can read and observe more of the goodies from him thereon. Thank you.

General Chua :
Saya merasa tawar hati & dukacita terhadap keputusan pilihanraya ini, saya merasa sangat-sangat marah kerana sekumpulan pegawai kerajaan yang berfikiran atau berhaluan kiri(terlatih) yang menjahanamkan/merosakkan sistem pentadbiran kerajaan kerana mereka menggunakan kedudukannya melaksanakan tugasnya pada waktu yang tidak sesuai terutamanya pada masa pilihanraya saya merasakan ini satu "conspiracy" untuk menimbulkan perasaan kemarahan & kebenciaan terhadap kerajaan.kerajaan sepatutnya mengambil tindakan tegas terhadapnya,contoh: perlantikan satu unit khas untuk menguji kakitangan kerajaan daripada setiap sudut samaada menyalahgunakan kuasanya atau berfikiran kiri & small napoleon.
