Malaysiakini has revealed that Dr Tan Yee Kew is now "very likely" to join Parti Keadilan Rakyat (http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/86491).
Yee Kew has chosen the right move. Ong Ka Ting was short-sighted for not fielding her in the recent Gen Election. But that had, in a way, spared her the agony due to the wind of change in the country. She was very likely to lose under the banner of BN. Now is the right time for her to leave MCA. It does not matter whether she joins PKR or DAP, as long as she could pave her way for the next Gen. Election.
The recent scenarios in the country showed that MCA is no more important to the Chinese as before. I could see that Ong Ka Ting was smart enough by stepping down as the president. Because Pakatan Rakyat will soon take over the government by 16th Sept. If not, it will take place by the next Gen. Election. So MCA is fast becoming irrelevant. It will not be very proud to be an opposition leader after enjoying for power for so long.
As such, to the Chinese, it does not matter who will become the next president of MCA, whether Ong Tee Keat, or Ong Ka Chuan, or Ng Yen Yen, or Dr Chua Soi Lek, or Chua Jui Meng, because the Chinese knew that MCA will always be chicken-hearted over the extreme policies of its Tai Ko UMNO. MCA would always keep silent when the welfares of the Chinese are denied.
