The new president has told people closest to him that he plans to request the PM and BN Chairman for "status quo" in relations to MCA's Cabinet posts. If this is true, Ong Tee Keat will remain Transport Minister, Liow keeps Health, Yen Yen stays at Tourism, and Chua Soi Lek himself will accept no Cabinet post.
It's the president's plan to re-unite the party, get all the warring factions to work together as a team.
Ong Tee Keat loses presidency. It's as good as official. According to those inside the hall where the votes for the MCA elections were counted, Chua Soi Lek has won the contest for party president. Liow Tiong Lai is Deputy President while the Vice Presidents are Yen Yen, Donald Lim, Chor Chee Heung and Gan Ping Sieu.
Is this the end of Tee Keat? Or will he now be able to focus on the ministry and on resolving the PKFZ issue without the pressure of the presidency?
