The time for real work and real change begins

马华党选已经结束。
我要衷心为我献上鼓励和祝福的马华同志、朋友、支持者以及我的部落格访者。感谢你们的支持和祝贺。
在马华党选胜出当选署理总会长,我谦逊地看待这项战绩和经验,因为它并非个人的荣耀,而是承载着所有党员志要重振党的希望。
激烈的竞选以后,我们必须迅速归队团结起来,所有中选的领袖必须要紧记我们对基层许下的承诺。我们要做他们革新党、国家的代理;我们一定要为党落实真正的改革。
党员已经开声了,这些讯息响亮而清晰。他们拒绝在党内建立“皇朝”霸业,他们不要一个软弱的领导层。他们要能够畅言无惧的领导层,在国阵里有平等的发言权。但这不表示马华要挑战巫统。马华和巫统必须要成为治理国家的合作伙伴。
我吁请各造抛开所有歧见,与全体马华领导层紧密合作,全力配合新任总会长拿督翁诗杰。
我要声明一点,马华要开始真正的工作,不仅为华社,而是为全民大声说话认真做事。我们一定要改变华社对我党抱持的负面印象和观念。我们不能只改变马华,还要在国阵里推动更大型的兴革,要国阵做一个跨种族、宗教,代表全民的政党。
我们要成为一个真正的政党,在国阵落实真正的政改,这是大马人民的要求。人民要一个更好及更廉洁的政府,而马华要从确保每位马华部长是最能干、最有效地管理出掌的部门。
在当下经济艰辛时刻,人民要看到一个为民工作的政府,马华要扮演最前线角色,确保有一个高效率的政府。
政治竟跑已经结束,是时候付诸行动实践真改革。
与此同时,我也趁此通知大家,我的将暂别两周休息为自己充电,再重新投入工作。
MCA election is over.

To my comrades, friends, supporters and everyone from this virtual network, I sincerely thank you for the words of encouragement and support.

My achievement in winning the MCA deputy presidency has been a most humbling experience in that it comes with the responsibility of carrying the hopes of all MCA members in rejuvenating our party.

While we must close ranks and come together after a most competitive campaign, all of the winning candidates must remember what was promised to the grassroots and to the delegates.

We must be their agent of change in the party and in the country. We must bring about the real change desired of the party.

The members have spoken. The message is loud and clear. They have rejected empire building. They have rejected a weak leadership. They want a more vocal leadership. The members want to have an equal say in how the Barisan Nasional government is administered. We are not here to challenge Umno, but we must become partners again in governance.

I pledge to set aside all differences and work closely with all the members of the senior leadership, including the newly elected president Datuk Ong Tee Keat. I want to make one thing clear. The real work lies ahead. The MCA must strive towards giving a greater voice not just to the Chinese community but to all ordinary Malaysians.

We must work hard to change the negative perception a substantial number in the Chinese community have of us. We cannot just change MCA but also work to reform BN.

We must work hard to bring about the kind of reforms necessary to regain support from all Malaysians not just for MCA but for BN as a real multi-racial coalition which represents all Malaysians regardless of race and creed.

We must become a real political party again to make real political changes within BN. That is what the people of Malaysia demand. They want better and cleaner governance. We must start by ensuring all of the MCA's ministers run the most efficient and most effective ministries.

In these economically trying times, Malaysians want to see a government that works for them. We in the MCA must being the forefront of ensuring an efficient and effective government.

The time for politics is over. The time for real work and for real change begins.

Meanwhile, I will be off from blogging for 2 weeks. I need time to recharge my battery.

In staying on in BN and MCA, you support:
1. Racists and bullying policies of your partner UMNO - The continued oppression of racial minorities in this country
2. The destruction of justice system through ISA detentions and slanted judiciary by UMNO
3. Rampant and obvious corruption including your own president's por klang free zone

You have voiced out but UMNO just ignores you and tells you to go to hell. So, by continuing in this useless struggle, you indirectly support and encourage them.

渴望两周后,
见到的拿督斯里是不仅是充满电的干电池,
而是一位冲满无限电力的发电机。

马华,巫统,国阵
的确需要如您般有魄力的领袖,
充电吧,加油吧。。

Yes Dr Chua, take time to recuperate and come back with full charged battery.MCA needs you for real change.

Huang said...

Dr. Chua, Congratulations on your recent success in obtaining the Deputy Presidency in MCA. Indeed it is a great achievement, especially after the sex video clip scandal; and the wide-spread circulation of this episode.

Yes, now the real work begings. Hopefully, your President will recommend you for a Ministerial post to reinforce the voice of MCA at Cabinet level. It si a fact of life that the winner in any contets will taste the fruits of labour!

Now that you have won, it is heavy responsibility to shoulder. Upon your shoulders rest the aspirations of MCA members in particular and the people in general. You have to show by ACTIONS, not just sounds, that you will carry out your pledge to MCA members.

CHANGE or be changed! REFORM or be DEFORMED! Take your pick!

Best regards.

S.H. Huang

一条毛毛虫要到河对岸,可是没有桥,没有船,毛毛虫怎样过去呢?

答案出人意料,却又在情理之中:毛毛虫蜕变成蝴蝶,飞过河去了。做毛毛虫时几乎不可想像的事,变成了蝴蝶之后,轻而易举地办到了。

在此寄予厚望,马华在“蕹菜”的强势领导下,能如毛毛虫般脱胎换骨,化做一只自在起舞的蝴蝶,轻轻飞跃毛毛虫时代不可逾越的河流。

Retard again ah?

LKS and AI, they have no time to lose. No CUTI at all!

LALILOo said...

After Mar 8 GE ended, many generals lost in their battle but was re-admitted to the cabinet via backdoor by non-other than Badawi himself.

Now, after MCA election has ended, it has been rumoured that OTK & gang are trying to re-admit some lost generals back into the frontline via backdoor.

What are you going to do about it?
Are you going to be a yes-man deputy or are you prepared to lock horns with your leader?

SiamPhile said...

Dr. Chua,

Can you please ensure that the BN government dont put up a bill board that says "another project by BN government"

It will be unimaginable that in US a bill board is up to say "another project by Republican government"

KIMHO8 said...

Why MCA does not support the ISA debate in Parliament?

Real work and real change???

mykschan said...

None of a MCA MP signs the petition to request parlimentary debate on ISA that raised by opposition. Can rakyat put the hope on you?

xiaohuang said...

从逆境中站起来的领袖,拿督斯里,党同志,华社期待您带来改变。

hobps said...

I may not be an MCA member, nor with any political parties. However, I am glad you won.

Congrats and I know you will do a good job for Malaysians.

Do rest well and come back stronger.

南洋閩學網誌 said...

I do not want to make any further comment at this moment , lets see how you fulfill your promise, I still insist that DVD issues is not just a personal affair but one of the social problem that need to be addressed , it is your responsibility to educate the general public.

If you are too energetic does not mean you have to involve yourself in affair outside marriage this is not a good excuse, you can also play badminton ,football ,computer game or involve yourself community work like GOTONG ROYONG.

GUAN TI(关云) of HAN DYNASTY was much more energetic than you , but he avoided himself from making mistake by reading CHUN QIU (春秋) throughout the whole night and
Was respected highly by CAO CAO. Why couldn’t you learnt from GUAN
TI of HAN DYNASY

Congratulation,i am a strong believer that however devious or powerful a person is he/she "cannot keep a great man down for long" MCA has to change to meet the expectation of the young educated, well inform, idealistic,cosmopolitan voters of today...MCA hopefully through your good self would notonly champion for the Chinese but champion "freedom, transparency,rights, equality in opportunity, meritrocracy ,productivity, efficiency and a clean society" for all Malaysians irrespective of race, color and religion... failing to do this would eventually leave MCA as a "has been party" like UMNO and the eventual demise of the party...I believe you be able to leave a strong positive legacy...

Johnny said...

1. Congrat to you on becoming d new deputy president of MCA.

2. All Malaysian Chinese are watching and see whether d new leadership can deliver what they preached.

3. If MCA leaders put getting a minister post as their priority and goal then they are selling off their race and their ancestors.

4. Whether MCA will vanished or not depends on the present leadership. No second chance.

5. My best wishes to MCA and all the elected leaders.

Wanted to tell you long time ago, the photo at the left of your blog is not nice, the posture looks like lady's hand.

clchan82 said...

I am glad that Dr. won in the campaign. Me as the new generation of Malaysia would really hope MCA has the real stand and work together with all MPs include the one from opposition to abolish the ISA and restore our economic together.
Why don't even has a single MCA MPs dare to sign the petition/memo to make the ISA being debate at parliament? Guts or Balls problem from the BN?
Maybe Dr. should really clarify Dr.'s stand for the ISA before represent MCA on this issue.

I really hope MCA dare to speak out against all(PR or BN) to protect the benefits of all Malaysians!

cheah said...

I am not been supporting you all the while in my life, but now I do;
I even wanted to bless you if I could. Hope that you can work well
with Tee Keat

Hi Dato',

Saya amat berbangga mempunyai saudara Chinese mcm Dato'. Seorang yang positif, bekerja keras, jujur dan amanah. Dari sejak mula Dato' mengaku ada skandal sebenarnya itulah Dato' yang tidak suka menipu. Malangnya kebanyakkan pemimpin hanya hipokrit, kaki ampu, mempunyai kepentingan diri yang tinggi dan tidak mempunyai prinsip diri.

Saya juga berbangga kerana lahirnya orang seperti Dr Asri.... www.drmaza.com . Beliau juga mempunyai prinsip yang kukuh mcm Dato'. Teruskan perjuangan Dato untuk memajukan negara supaya kita dapat hidup harmoni dan sejahtera.

Wish you all the best!

Dr, for you to be on the right track,hammer OTK if you have to do to get it right,remember.Enjoy your holidays!

Yes, MCA is expected to be seen an effective and efficient teamwork, importantly put aside all kind of differences (if any) and unite all members and leaders, at all levels, work hard for the country.

The standard of the PR leaders is far behind those in MCA and Gerakan, but just that BN parties prefer "mouth war"...??!! This must be recritied immediately.

I have confidence in both MCA and Gerakan, those who can really and practically do something good for the country.

Fernando said...

Dato Seri,

The Chinese community is really placing HIGH hopes on the current MCA leadership. MCA needs to play a HUGE role in ensuring the rights and welfares of generations of Malaysian Chinese are protected and further enhanced.

Sincerely,

On 15th September you said, " The opposition parties have for years been using the repeal of the ISA as a rallying cry. Perhaps it is time for us in BN to seize the initiative once and for all and review the ISA. This will show the people that we have a government which listens to them.

The ISA can be replaced with some other legislation which offers protection against abuse and which allows judicial review."

Since you are now No 2, please prevail upon the MCXA and your MPs to publicly support YB Lim Kit Siang's endeavours to have the repeal of the ISA debated in the House. You and the MCA must not keep quiet anymore and must make a stand even if it would not be approved by UMNO. Show us that there is now a different MCA which is no more a lap dog to UMNO.

meiyen said...

I agree with Chia, the picture looks girlish. You also drop all the titles when addressing or introducing yourself in your blog. It has everything to do with being humble.

Pearls said...

Recharge your batteries?? Eh, writing blog not recharging your batteries meh? Wahahahahaha...

Anyway, the road ahead is going to be shit.. so, be brave.. be strong and most definitely, please be smart.. We are all watching you.

clchan82 said...

Congrates to you Dr. Chua!

Do MCA have the guts to tell "UMNO" to abolish the ISA?

I believe you are great leader, but how far u can bring us go. What I see from Selangor government that Khalid dare to appoint an non-malay to lead the PKNS that lead to lots of protest within the selangor government itself. CAN MCA make the first step by calling ISA being abolished and review the EUROHELICOPTER project that is in the great interest of people.

It is unfair to direct the question to you over here as u are not president of MCA.

Just show Malaysians that MCA are fighting for all Malaysians rather than just Mr. Yes to UMNO and "shout loudly at the MCA AGM that want to debate about the ISA"

Please direct this to "WEI JIA XIANG", do he got the guts to raise the ISA issues at the cabinet meeting? If he do it, i will respect him, else shut up! AND STOP TELLING US, WILL BRING THE ISSUE TO DISCUSS WITHIN THE BN! cock... after 308GE, still don't understand WE NOT BUY THIS WAY! Ong Ka Chuan back the idea of INTERNAL DISCUSSION with BN will solve the problem, that I think affect the result MCA election as well. Please wake up !

Andrew Chia said...

Dr Chua,

I fully support you. I think you can bring a lot of good to the people of Malaysia. You are really a great guy!
