Chua Soi Lek sacked - what next?
It's has to come to this finally. The parting of ways between the two estranged MCA leaders has finally taken place. The MCA presidential council, which met passed midnight, endorsed a decision by the disciplinary board to sack deputy president Chua Soi Lek. Chua now has 14 days to appeal. In a statement issued after the meeting, it said the decision was made after giving much consideration "to the damage inflicted upon the party brought about by Dr Chua's DVD sex scandal." What next? The central committee is almost certain to endorse the stand taken by the presidential council. Meanwhile, supporters of CSL are certain to express their unhappiness over the latest development with supporters of OTK endorsing the sacking.
