DAP will not be MCA2 and MCA cannot be DAP2

A new political myth is making the rounds in Malaysia, that with the DAP in a silent mode, there’s need for a Third Force in the country.

According to this myth, as DAP has become MCA2, MCA should become DAP2.

There cannot be a greater misreading of political trends and dynamics in Malaysia as DAP will not be MCA2 and MCA cannot be DAP2.

It is akin to political imbecility to believe that MCA, after being almost eliminated in the 14th General Election, could evolve to become DAP2, when up to now, MCA dare not cut its umbilical cord with UMNO and  no MCA leader has the  conviction and temerity to denounce the 1MDB scandal and  the former Prime Minster,

of Police, Abdul Hamid Bador, replacing Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.

As the Attorney-General Tommy Thomas said at the ceremonial sitting to celebrate the appointment of Chief Justice Tengku Maimum at the Palace of Justice this morning, the only way for the Malaysian judiciary to return to its “glory days” of the 1970s and 1980s was for judges to consistently endeavour to make the right decisions.
