Who owns Wangsa Maju?: The case for fielding YB Wee Choo Keong


Neither MCA nor Umno  "own" Wangsa Maju, if you ask me. YB Wee Choo Keong is the incumbent and serving MP for Wangsa Maju. In 2008 he defeated the BN candidate from MCA by a 150-vote majority. It might have been one of the slimmest margins but if one considers that Wee 1. was not a PKR member even though he contested on their ticket; 2. the DAP hated his guts; and 3. he was not PAS-friendly even though he was born and raised in Kelantan, then Wee's victory in Wangsa Maju 5 years ago had defied the odds. 
He's been serving the constituency well and the people of Wangsa Maju like him and know they can depend on their MP. In Parliament, Wee has been vocal and is a critic of both BN and Pakatan. He even helped lead a cyber campaign that got Najib Razak to reverse a controversial deal brokered by Khazanah which would have let Air Asia take over Malaysia Airlines, the national carrier. 
Yesterday, where the angels from BN dared not thread, Wee questioned both Lim Guan Eng and Ambiga S over what needed to be asked. Read the paper cutting below and tell me if the BN or MCA aspiring candidate for Wangsa Maju has the gumption to take on those two?

Lim told to explain DAP polls fiasco

KEEPING SILENT: He has failed to act fairly to delegates who were not notified of the CEC election, says former MP

KUALA LUMPUR: FORMER Wangsa Maju independent member of parliament Wee Choo Keong has  asked DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng  to step forward and explain the party’s election fiasco.
 Wee said Lim had  failed to take the necessary steps to act fairly give justice to all the DAP  delegates who were not  notified of the central  executive committee  (CEC) elections, especially the 735 Indian delegates who had been demanding for an explanation.
 “I have come to understand that  he is scared that the Registrar of  Societies (RoS) will interview the 735  DAP delegates who were not in formed about the CEC elections on  Dec 15.
 “We want to know why he is still reluctant to present the name  list of names of the 753 who did  not turn up and the 1,823  delegates who were present,” said Wee, who is also DAP’s  former DAP national  publicity secretary.
 He also questioned  Bersih co-chairman  Datuk S. Ambiga’s on her silence onregarding the issue and  for not defending the  plight of the over 700 Indian delegates that were passed over by  Lim.
 “Is his act clean or  dirty in Ambiga’s eyes?”  he questioned, adding  that  Ambiga  should issue a public statement  if she fully supported his  actions.
 “If RoS ordered that  Lim conduct a re-election and ask all 735 Indian delegates  to be present and vote, would  Ambiga protest?”
 Wee said he was confident that Ambiga  would protest a re-election as it would affect  Lim’s position and give other Indian candidates an opportunity to  win.
 Meanwhile, In Tampin, a former DAP leader  has also asked why Ambiga did not  take an interest in to investigate  DAP’s CEC’s election fiasco.
 Tan Tuan Tat, who is the former Selangor DAP publicity  secretary, was perplexed that Ambiga,  who claimed to champions  clean and free  elections, had never  questioned the party  which often was proud of its  competency, account ability and transparency (CAT) practice.
  “Ambiga is always  challenging the Election Commission to be  fair and just.
  “So, why didn’t she ask DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng about the party’s 753 delegates who  were denied of a chance  to vote at the party’s recent CEC election?”
 Tan was speaking at a dinner meeting with DAP Ladang Regent branch mem bers at Balai Raya Ladang Regent in  Gemencheh, here, on Wednesday.
 He felt that if Ambiga was really  serious about competency, account ability and transparency, then she should  have challenged the DAP to reveal more about the its CEC’s election fiasco.
 He said the public should not  blamed others if the Registrar of Societies (RoS) decided to de-register the party or make it called for a  fresh election, thus not allowing the party to use its logo infor the general  election.
 “Do not blame the other political  parties or their rivals. They should instead look at point to the DAP leaders who  decided to change the election results after the CEC results were out and claimed that there was a technical glitch by the computer,” he added.”
  A total of 2,576 DAP delegates  should have been present at the election to select 20 of the party’s CEC  members, yet 753 of them did not  vote.

I hope Wee Choo Keong will be re-elected in Wabgsa Maju.

He has taken the correct stands in the interests of the people and the country on matters which affect the people and the country.

DAP claims to stand for a Malaysian Malaysia but it's becoming quite apparent that it does not even practice being a Malaysian DAP.

DAP also claims to be "social democatic" but what kind of social democracy does it practice in terms of more affordable housing for the lower income group in Penang, for example.

The DAP was more Malaysian and social democratic in its character before but it now seems to have become more bourgeois & petty-bourgeois in its character and interests.

I don't see much interest in it for the plight of the workers and lower income group any more.

In that regard, Wee Choo Keong is more in the spirit of the DAP of 1970s & 1980s.

Today, it is more of a towkay & yuppie party.

I have always admired these MPs from Konsensus Bebas. I think it would be wise of BN to have YBs like Wee Choo Keong, Zulkiflee Nordin, Ibrahim Ali, Zahrain, Gobalakrishnan, Tan Tee Beng and other BN friendly MP to stand on BN ticket, this GE13.

YB Wee Choo Keong, On 5th. & 22nd. Nov.2012, have tabled a motion under the Standing Order 18 (1) in Parliament for debate on the serious issue of foreign funding injected into the country with the predominant agenda of “REGIME CHANGE”. However, the motion was rejected with just a stroke of the pen by the Speaker of the House, YB Tan Sri Pandikar.

In the US, there is a law that any NGOs receiving foreign fund for their activities, must declared their assets and be registered with Homeland Security which then labelled these NGOs as 'Foreign Agents'. Russia had just recently enact almost the same law. I think it's about time Malaysia do the same.

If Malaysian support this motion against 'Foreign Agent' meddling in our affairs, vote for YB Wee Choo Keong.

Dato Rocks..

I say to myself and am keep saying it; YB Wee Choo Keong is a good candidate for BN because;

1. honest politician
2. hardworking
3. non partisan
4. always around when needed

but above all,

5. not a liar and cheater, not practising hate,racist,discrimination,fascist type of politics and not a polluter but environment friendly.

6. he dont hate Dr. Mahathir

7.could become the second Lee Lam Thye (LLT left DAP because of item no. 5 above)

8.not an evangelist chinkies christo.

for all the above, he fulfilled the requirement.

thus,

we the Rakyat hereby endorsed, approved that YB Wee Choo Keong qualified to represent the people of wangsa maju.

Honestly the ROS should prevent DAP from fielding their candidates for the coming election. The DAP practically cancelled themselves out of the competition.

What happened to the idiots, goons and morons who took part in the various BERSIH demonstrations.

As for this lady Ambiga, she just declared herself a political *****, selling herself to about anybody who pays the right price.

What about the political bastards from next door. What!!! No comment. Guess so.

IT.Sheis,

Yep, that's him taking on the Empire and Bersih (and by extension the Bar Council) at one go.

Well, maybe Shafie the aspiring Umno candidate can and may also do the same but there's also this other consideration: Shafie is Najib Razak's political secretary and right now too many political secretaries of the PM want to contest.

If they ALL contest, who is going to make sure that someone got Najib's back?

MCA is also pretty confident that their candidate will do better than Shafie.

Sometime back Najib talked about getting direct members of BN. To me Wee is a good candidate - call it guinea pig for all I care - for that.

If Najib does not nominate BN-freindly Wee Choo Keong for Wangsa Maju parliamentary seat we will be loosing one of the most effective lawmakers in the annal of Malaysian parmiamentry history! I will vote for Wee any time any day!

Salam Datuk, I second the motion. I believe YB Wee will be impartial and raise issues without fear or favour. I had the pleasure of meeting YB for the first time in TTDI. That fellow inadvetently cropped up as a subject of our conversation. This were YB's exact words, "Anwar? That fellow cannot be trusted".

Best regards

He told me that when they informed YB that a group of people wanted to start another daily market, which will cause massive problems and traffic jam. YB Wee came down and got a petition down. After a week or two DBKL stop it. He is a a good MP as we can see from his performance in Parliament.

UMNO don't have to resort to such tactics. What happened to DAP was their own doing, and Karpal says it is a serious issue. UMNO did not instigate DAP members to lodge police reports against their party but it was done by members who felt they were cheated during the CEC elections

Pls make fair analysis and comment. If UMNO had played dirty throughout, DAP wouldn't have won big in1969 and 2008.

You must be a hardcore Pakatan supporter. Anything that happens around and goes wrong is sure UMNO's doing.

Finally somebody said it out loud...PM should pick incumbent Wee to contest Wangsa Maju.

His humble connectivity with the people in Wangsa Maju and his revelations about the dodgy MAS-Khazanah-Air Asia fiasco were commendable.

Exactly the type of MP we need in today's Malaysia.

All this talk about the UMNO guy who said he "deserved" to contest because he worked hard for it is what exactly people were sick of the last election. Only old-school Porche Cayenne-type of Bumi politicians talk like that, and the younger voters nowadays (who struggle with cost of living and credit card bills etc) have no time for them.

PM...please do the right thing.

He needs party machinery to campaign since Pakatan now has strong party machinery and foot soldiers. Who's going to provide that MCA? UMNO? Najib?I think Rocky should get some bloggers together and help him.

Mustapha Ong said...

I am not a resident in Wangsa Maju. However, if I am the resident and voter I'll certainly support Wee Choo Keong to offer himself another term as an independent MP, in order to avoid the current political conflict between MCA and UMNO.

Tan Kee Kwong who is the PKR candidate for Wangsa Maju said " nobody owns Wangsa Maju but the voters and residents own the constituency." Tan also commented that both MCA and UMNO should not fight over the ownership of Wangsa Maju. However, there are also similar fighting for seats between DAP, PKR and PAS over many more seats, either parliamentary or DUN.All the three Pakatan Rakyat parties are squabbling for most seats, so that their party will emerge as the majority opposition in parliament or DUN.In the case of BN political structure and agreed by consensus, only UMNO can be the majority in parliament and DUN.

If the MCA cawangan Wangsa Maju issues a statement that the UMNO rep selected to be the candidate is not winnable, does:

1. It come from the central MCA HQ or,
2. It comes from the whole cawangan or,
3. It comes from just one person in the cawangan (echoed by his cohorts) who may not be reelected.

Answer is: such a sore loser... (and I thought DS Najib allowed them 24 hours to sulk)

Even if the YB is doing a good job, party consensus is the most important issue. With many seat swaps and "loans", the independents will always get squeezed out to reduce friction between coalition members. Wee will be opposed by both PR and BN in GE13.

Mat Cendana said...

If you'd ask me, I'll say the same too - Wee Choo Keong should be the candidate and MP for Wangsa Maju. Now this is someone whom reasonably-minded people are comfortable with and trust as compared with many other possible candidates. Unfortunately, with the nature of the political system being what it is, the question concerning Wangsa Maju has instead turned into whether Umno or MCA should contest it.

Just three years ago, I would have been clueless when it comes to places like Wangsa Maju. But, having moved to the Klang Valley since 2010, I've been going around these places and have a much better feel of things. And Wangsa Maju is a place that I've become quite familiar with. No, it's not the Wangsa Walk area as one would expect although I've been there a few times - more of towards that commercial area in front of the school where Affin Bank is. Quite a number of relatives on my wife's side live or work around here. Is Datuk Keramat within Wangsa Maju too? That's where my uncle is.

But I digress... It's quite sad should someone of Wee's calibre not be an MP again. During the past 5 years, I'd say he's among the best of the lot - fair, reasonable and with the guts to take on issues. Can either Umno or MCA come up with someone better?

YB Wee must contest as an Independent on BN's ticket. I'd rather support Konsensus Bebas than those in Pakatan (Conspiracy) coalition (which practice Nepotism & Cronyism to the hilt) to act as 'check & balance against BN.

YB Wee and Lee Lam Thye was sacked from DAP for not 'showing affection and love' to the Dynasty of Lim and son. No wonder their arse-lickers are very angry of him.

In Johore, the same fate will befall Dr.Boo and Norman Fernandes. Just wait and see.

You should check the law that Dr M changed after UMNO got deregistered. It states that party disputes must be settled within the party and anyone in the party who raises it at other forums loses the right of party membership.

The Indians who were 'purchased' in NS to go against DAP will know their fate soon.

Wee has no right to interfere in a party matter that he does not belong. Same goes for UMNO fellows too.

Read that law again.
Consult properly before making sweeping statements, although it is a known fact that you are trying hard to be a new broom after 2008.

Wee is a good 'independent' candidate. I doubt he would want to stand on a BN ticket as doing so would compromise his independence.
Thus for BN - there is a need for a candidate that would follow the Whip in parliament and I doubt he would do so.
He is not someone who will toe the aprty line and does not have the support of the UMNO constituency.

Thus I hope for his sake he refuses to stand on anyone else's ticket.

YB Wee could bow out then be re-elected as a Senator so that he could set in motion again that 'Foreign Agents Act" which he tabled in Parliament, Mac. & Nov. 2012, but was denied by Pandikar Amin Mulia.

The US have this Laws to 'checkmate' foreign funding into their NGOs, since 1960s. NGOs receiving funds from other countries or foreigners outsi the US, must declare their assets to Homeland Security which then labelled these NGO as 'Foreign Agents'. Their assets were anually audited, too.
Russia just recently, enacted the same kind of law and Malaysia must follow suit, in earnest.
