Both MCA sides agree to single EGM

KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA will have only one extraordinary general meeting (EGM) by Oct 11 following an amicable solution reached by both camps after a five-hour discussion at Wisma MCA on Monday.

It was also decided that the five proposed resolutions submitted by supporters of sacked deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek will be adopted in the EGM.

Party secretary-general Datuk Wong Foon Meng said he would fix the date and issue a notice of the EGM on Sept 16 to all central delegates based on Articles 30.1 and 30.3 of the party constitution.

Wong said the concensus was reached during the meeting which started at 3.30pm in the best interests of the party and the central delegates.

“President Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat has agreed to adopt in toto the five motions proposed by the requisitionists,” said Wong at a press conference held at Wisma MCA at 8.30 pm.

The proposed resolutions submited by supporters of sacked deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek are:

> That the members of the general assembly have no confidence in the leadership of president Ong.

> That the presidential council’s decision on Aug 26 in accepting the recommendation of the disciplinary board and the subsequent decision of the central committee (if any) to expel or suspend Dr Chua is annulled.

> Dr Chua be rightfully restored as deputy president of MCA.

> The appointment made by the central committee, including that of deputy president of MCA, be revoked.

> There shall be no disciplinary action taken against any or all of the requisitionists by the disciplinary board, the central committee or the presidential council.

Central delegates would vote on each proposed resolution during the EGM, Wong said.
