Liow Tiong Lai should cite one stance where MCA has changed Since his “Citizen” National Day video, whether MCA had ever Protested against the 1MDB scandal in government?

MCA President Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said that I am a “lost man” without any direction as my strategy had backfired.

I congratulate Liow for his political acumen for being able to read my political strategy, and if his analysis is true that I am a “lost man”, he should be the happiest man in Malaysian politics instead of leading a most unprecedented MCA “Anti-Siege/Elimination Total Offensive” Rally in Yong Peng yesterday fighting a last battle of survival.

Liow alleges that the DAP wants to kill off MCA. He is grossly mistaken MCA will kill off itself, by betraying the very objectives and principles for which MCA was founded.

This was why MCA was reduced from golden age in the past to a 7/11 party in the last general elections, winning only seven parliamentary and eleven state assembly seats.

I would advise Liow to revisit his “Citizens” National Day Video last year and act as a brave citizen of Malaysia and not as a cringing MP and Minister solely dependent on UMNO’s Malay votes.

In the “Citizens” video, Liow the Minister admitted to Liow the citizen:

“The last ten years have been hard for everyone. I know we haven’t done enough”.

Was Liow the Minister speaking from the heart? If so, could he list out the things the MCA Ministers and leaders had not “done enough” and had remedied since the National Day video?

The video tried to present the dilemma and malaise Malaysians had been feeling for the past decade or so, the great disappointment over the state of the nation – rampant corruption, political instability and a crippling economy.

Had Liow and the two MCA Ministers ever raised the 1MDB scandal in Cabinet since the “Citizens” video?

Would Liow agree that these problems must be addressed and the nation’s infamy and ignominy as a “global kleptocracy” be allowed to continue and must be the No. 1 issue in the 14th General Election?

In the “Citizens” video, Liow the politician came face-to-face with Citizen Liow, who angrily asked him, “What do you want?” to which Liow replied, “I know, you think I’m irrelevant, nothing I do is good enough. Of course I’m hurt by that, but now is not the time to discuss that.”

Liow the Minister said: “I’m only here to ask you to not give up on this country.

“Running the country isn’t easy. But the starting point of any solution is never give up hope.”

Liow the Minister said:

“The dream of Malaysia is beautiful and worthy of our perseverance.

“I believe every citizen and leader wish for a better Malaysia. Provided you follow your conscience, I don’t mind which party you support. I earnestly urge you to, once again, believe in Malaysia.”

Liow must state clearly and unequivocally whether he is sincere in what he said in the video, that provided Malaysians, including MCA members, follow their conscience in their Malaysian dream, he does not mind which political party they support and vote in the 14th General Election.

Liow should cite one stance where MCA has changed since his “Citizen” National Day video, whether MCA had ever protested against the 1MDB scandal in government?

I call on Malaysians, including MCA members, not to lose hope, and in the 14GE to unite with all Malaysians, whether MCA, UMNO, Gerakan, MIC or even PAS members, for the achievement of the Malaysian Dream by voting for a change of Federal Government in Putrajaya for Malaysia to take the first step to become a normal democracy – an integral part of the Malaysian Dream.

    MCA won 7/ 11 seats in last election. Several of the seats that were ‘lent’ out to BN, are not given back.
    Will the president declare to the members to save the country, by voting for change.?
    Are the members not affected by GST?
