RESIGNATION OF TAN YEE KEW FROM MCA

Another interesting development. What else is cooking? Indeed, Malaysian politics is in a state of flux and reorganisation as well as reengineering are occurring for the better. This can only happen if one practises open mindedness and use the structure located between one's two ears.


Tan Yee Kew resigns from MCA after 20 years

Adapted from Sun2surf

Former Wanita MCA deputy chief Datin Paduka Dr Tan Yee Kew today announced her resignation from the party after 20 years, saying the MCA is no longer an effective platform to champion the people and nation.

Tan, 57, told a press conference in Klang that political changes in the country had convinced her that the MCA was no longer an effective platform to fight for the people and country.

She said the MCA was fraught with factionalism which had caused in-fighting and bad practices such as the existence of phantom members in the party.

Asked if she was joining another political party, the former International Trade and Industry Ministry parliamentary secretary and MCA central committee member said she would announce it soon.

"Most of us would agree that a single dominating political party is not good for democracy and a multiracial society, and that only a two-party system can provide the necessary check and balance in the political system to safeguard democracy, moderation and peace in the country." she said.

In voicing support for the two party system, Tan who claim she had informed MCA headquarters of her decision by fax this morning, hinted she may be joining Parti Keadilan Rakyat.

As to whether she expects her supporters to follow her, she said she would advise them to think carefully and decide wisely about their political future.

Quoted From the Staronline

As a politician with conscience, she said, she too shared the people’s frustration over the widening gap between the rich and the poor in the country, racial discrimination in public policies, rising corruption and abuse of power.

“Despite the growing discontent among of the people, Barisan Nasional has shown neither the determination nor the commitment to address these problems,” she claimed
