Chua: Social contract should be discussed in private

THE implementation of the social contract can be discussed, but it should be done behind closed doors, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

Dr Chua said the party accepted that the social contract was entrenched in the Federal Consti-tution, but said the implementation of it could be “modified and redefined” to serve the interest of all races.

“We feel that there should be room for discussion, and the discussion has to take into consideration the sensitivities of all races.

“It should not be done in the open, but behind closed doors,” he said.

Dr Chua was commenting on the policy speech delivered by Umno president and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at 61st Umno General Assembly here yesterday.

He also welcomed Najib’s reminder to members that social stability was the basis to spur national development.

MCA secretary-general and Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the speech presented a new direction for Umno members to take the party and the nation forward.

“The Prime Minister reminded Umno members on globalisation, and all citizens regardless of races to work together to be competitive on the world stage,” he said.

You have a penchant for doing things in private.

Social contract? What social contract? Can Dr Chua show me a copy of the social contract?

We don't need some non existence social contract to respect each other, to recognise each other's rights, to accept our differences and to treat each other fairly.

All we people want is some fairness, justice and hell lots less corruption.

Do that, and no matter what the name of the party, people will vote for you.

At this moment I can only see a bunch of arrogant Idiots helming MC Eh.
