The Abandonment Of MCA Leaders’ Election Promise Not To Accept Ministerial And Government Posts Have Proven MCA’s Corrupt Political Philosophy That Principles Are Informed By Positions When Positions Should Be Informed By Principles.(en/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 24.2.2014.

The abandonment of MCA leaders’ election promise not to accept Ministerial and government posts have proven MCA’s corrupt political philosophy that principles are informed by positions when positions should be informed by principles. MCA is willing to be a traitor to their cause and a slave to racists and religious extremists merely to enjoy the perks and privileges of Ministerial office.

What change or difference can MCA do in Cabinet or in government posts now that they could not do in the past? To-date MCA has continued to entertain and support Utusan Malaysia despite Utusan Malaysia’s hatred and violent anti-non-Malay and anti non-Muslim rhetoric. MCA had also chosen to attack DAP Seputih MP Teresa Kok’s harmless video clip and sided with the racists and extremists playing games to distract attention from BN’s price hikes in sugar, petrol, power tariffs and motor insurance premiums.

MCA has adopted Utusan Malaysia and UMNO’s racialising of the 2013 general elections results by blaming it on the Chinese opposing BN. Such ridiculous reasoning defies logic when the Chinese only comprise 24% of the population, whilst PR obtained 51% of the popular vote. Clearly sufficient Malays, Indians, Ibans and Kadazans must have voted for PR to allow PR to be the majority party of choice for Malaysians in the 2013 general elections.

Would MCA entering government make any difference to UMNO’s racial politics apart from higher salaries and benefits to MCA leaders? MCA did not earn the respect of UMNO when they obtained full support from voters in the past and yet still maintained the same number of Ministerial posts. It is unlikely that UMNO will accord MCA any respect or change any policies when MCA has now lost both the respect and support of voters.

To earn back support and respect of their own voters and members, MCA must prove that they are a party of integrity, ideals, principles and vision. However MCA is turning its back on these values by abandoning their election promise not to enter government, because the lure of political posts is more attractive than any ideals or principles.

马华领袖违背不接受部长及政府职位的选举承诺,证明了马华的腐败政治哲学,为了升官不顾原则,而不是依靠原则升官。

马华领袖违背不接受部长及政府职位的选举承诺,证明了马华的腐败政治哲学,为了升官不顾原则,而不是依靠原则升官。马华愿意背叛他们的理想,让种族主义及宗教极端份子奴驭,只为了享有部长办公室的种种津贴与特权。

马华在内阁或政府职位中可以改变什么,会跟过去有什么不同?至今,马华仍然不顾《前锋报》一贯反非马来人及非穆斯林的憎恨及暴力措辞,继续应酬及支持《前锋报》。马华选择站在种族主义与极端主义份子的一边,狠狠攻击郭素沁的贺岁短片,以转移国阵调涨食糖、汽油、电费及摩多保险费的视线。

马华竟然采用《前锋报》及巫统种族化2013年大选成绩,归咎华人反国阵的论调。这荒谬的理由根本违反逻辑,因为华裔人口只占24%,但民联却占51%的多数选票。很明显这一定是众多马来人、印度人、依班人及卡达山人已经投给民联一票,让民联成为多数大马人在2013年大选的选择。

除了获得更高的薪资及利益,马华领袖进入政府能改变巫统的种族政治吗?巫统一直不尊重马华,当年即使马华获得全力支持,但部长职位还是维持不变。如今马华不只失去应有尊重更失去选票,巫统就更加不会尊重马华或在政策上做出任何改变。

马华要赢回其支持者及党员的支持与尊重,就必须证明他们是廉洁、有理想、有原则及有愿景的政党。然而,马华却违背了这一切价值观,违背了不加入政府的选举承诺,因为对他们来说政治职位的诱惑比任何理想与原则更加吸引人。
