First three MCA Presidents, Tan Cheng Lock, Lim Chong Eu and Tan Siew Sin, must be turning in their graves at the new MCA/UMNO/PAS unholy alliance in Balakong by-election to cause downfall of Pakatan Harapan government before 15GE

The first three MCA Presidents, Tun Tan Cheng Lock, Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu and Tun Tan Siew Sin, must be turning in their graves at the new MCA/UMNO/PAS unholy alliance in the Balakong by-election to cause the downfall of Pakatan Harapan government before the 15th General Election so as restore the regime of corruption, abuses of power and mediocrity of the past.

May 9, 2018 was a “gift of hope” which civic societies can help to fruition by playing an important role in nation building in New Malaysia – developing ways for the different races and religions to interact more and better understand each other

I recall that when I first set out 53 years ago on the political journey, there was no thought about elections, becoming a State Assemblyman, Member of Parliament or forming governments just ideals and principles although these became necessary elements in the ensuing process.

I was propelled solely by the idealism of youth to contribute to the building of a better Malaysia, which is united, harmonious, democratic, progressive and prosperous, where there is rule of law, good governance, public integrity and economic well-being; to build a Malaysia which is admired and respected by the world as a world-class nation in various fields of human endeavour.
