Immediately after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was reported about to intervene to pacify MCA as reported here:
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said he will meet leaders of opposing groups in the MCA to solve the current crisis, preferably before the proposed extraordinary general meeting (EGM)on Nov 28.
He voiced his concern that the MCA crisis was getting worse and what the party had done so far did not give confidence to the people.
On when he will meet the leadership, he said he will find a time and will consider to meet the two groups either together or separately, hopefully before the Nov 28 EGM.
Then we heard MCA central committee saying we don’t need Godfather in MCA!:
Datuk Ti Lian Ker said there should be no “political godfather” culture in the party where party leaders turn to other component parties for support.
“There should be no culture of this sort from within the party, where certain individuals continually subvert and undermine the party’s agenda, purely because they have the comfort of crying to their political godfather outside the party.”
This was in response to the Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s comment from Rome expressing the possibility of Umno intervening in MCA’s on-going leadership crisis.
“We appreciate the DPM’s concern, but at the same time we would like to see to the party’s internal affairs ourselves in order to stabilise the party,” said Ti, who is also MCA liaison bureau chief.
