MCA State Chairman/ 贯彻民主,从州主席开始

I am inclined to agree with Tan Sri Ting Chew Peh’s call that MCA’s state chairman should be by election. MCA needs to re-look at the party constitution and amend the constitution to enable the state liaison chairman to be elected by designated members in the state rather than appointed by the President. This will ensure that the state chairman will reflect the wish of the members in the state through democratic process. Leaders of state Youth and Wanita are also by election. The parent body should follow the same democratic process.

State chairman have considerable influence in recommending at state level with regards to the nomination of councilors for local government and also the candidates for general election.

Hence, it’s only fair that the state chairman is by election that:
i. state chairman shall be elected by the elected committee members of MCA Division, that is Chairman, Deputy Chairman, Vice Chairmen, the 10 elected committee members;
ii. In order for the youth and wanita to have a say in this election, youth and wanita will also participate in this election and will be represented by Chairman, Deputy Chairman and the vice chairmen.

The state liaison committee shall than consist of the state chairman, divisional chairmen, youth and wanita chairman, senators, both the elected people’s representatives at state and federal level.

This will make the leadership more democratic and accountable to its members, rather than this direct appointment by the President.

马华元老兼前总秘书丹斯里陈祖排日前受媒体访问时指,马华各州联委会主席一职应由党员通过选举推选而出。
我同意他的号召。马华应该检讨和修改党章,让各州马华党员推选一主去领导他们,而不是由总会长委任。目前,各州马青团长和妇女组主席皆由基层投选,因此州母体也应该贯彻此民主精神,赋权党员在新届改选中投选他们的州主席,这样才能反映和照顾到基层的意愿。

州主席拥有一定的影响和权力向中央推举地方政府的县市议员以及大选候选人人选。因此,州主席应该由各州的基层代表进行投选,而这项选举必须贯彻以下两点,对党员才算公平:
1. 州主席须由票选的区会执委(即区会主席、署理主席、副主席及10位票选委员)投选
2. 马青州分团和妇女组也应被赋权参与投选,由团长、署理团长、副团长、主席、署理主席和副主席代表投选

至于州联委会执委阵容应概括所有票选的代表,即州主席、马青州分团团长、妇女组州主席、区会主席、上议员以及国州议员。

相对于由总会长委任,票选州主席一策能使马华各州的领导层体现真正的民主作风,对基层而言也更具公信力。

Dr,I agree absolutely your suggestion but even with this type of election the members are bound to create chaos ending in a Team A and B.

Dr Chua,

Agree!

MCA’s state chairman should be by election.

領袖應該從基層從人民里走出來,若是通過委任通過接棒,那也是黨內派系的支持,有可能他不是人民所信賴所付托的人選,這對黨員和人民都非常的不公正。

Great! Finally, seasoned MCA heavyweights finally admitting it as undemocratic and agreed to do something about it. Why couldn't you see the problems in the past when you were all part of the wrong system? Is it because you all enjoying the advantages of the autocratic rule? You are not forgivable on this matter; nevertheless, should you contest in the party election for the presidency in October, don’t forget to insert this in your manifesto.

如果州马青及妇女主席可以用选举出来,我看不出有什么理由马华州主不可用选举推选.很多好的基层领袖,尽管他们在地方上被肯定但在通往国州议员候选人的过程中纷纷落马,反而让没有基层的人成为候选人,靠的只有一样--和中央委任的州主席打好关系.
党州席也因为有委任州主席的权利,使到党内马屁,帮派歪风的滋长"来历不明""飞象过河"的主席往往使州的党务不实际,乌烟瘴气.

Dear Dr. Chua,

I totally agree with you. In fact, OKT keep emphasize on building a healthy politic, it should start from the very basic, which is the grassroot. Even our PM should also do the same, to be elected by the rakyat. Good luck to you for the upcoming contest. God Bless......

max said...

I totaly agree, this is basic, but we hope that our party can have a Vision in future.

完全支持!
都什么时代了,竟然还有这种钦命大臣的事,还说什么健康政治文化?!喜欢吃的就叫健康食品,不喜欢的就叫垃圾食物,难怪弄得马华周身是病,满腹蛔虫!!
