Gerakan Leader Calls For Party To Quit BN

From Bernama
Gerakan acting president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said the remark by women's head Datuk Tan Lian Hoe who wanted the party to reconsider its position in Barisan Nasional (BN) was an internal problem and would be resolved by the party itself.

He said Tan had not communicated to him of her opinion and he was surprised after being told about what she had said.

"I will handle the issue within the party. This only reflects that there are opinion differences among party leaders and it shows the democratic process does exist. And we will discuss the matter within the party," he said.

Earlier, he accompanied Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in a meeting with leaders of Chinese non-governmental organisations and Islamic religious class teachers here Sunday.

Tan who is Deputy Information Minister, told reporters after the annual conference of Perak Gerakan delegates in Ipoh Sunday that party grassroots were unhappy with BN leaders who used racial issues to gain political support.

Dr Koh said that probably, Tan raised the matter because as Deputy Information Minister, she received information from the Chinese community and grassroots.

It would not become an issue, he said and added that he would continue to campaign for the BN candidate in the Permatang Pauh by-election as Penang BN chairman.

Meanwhile, Abdullah when asked to comment on the matter, said he had not been informed of it.
***** So the call for minor players in the BN to quit has started. About time too. How long can these also-rans continue to put up with Umno and its persistent race-baiting? Despite the expected pathetic response by Dr Koh Tsu Koon, it'll only be a matter of time before the lone voice of Datuk Tan turns into a flood of discontent and anger. Are MCA and MIC listening?

I think better leave at least MCA inside BN. If Malaysia going towards 2 party system, it is to rakyat's advantage to have both sides available so that we can switch whenever they misbehave.

I like the idea of Ong Tee Keat as President MCA. Let's see if MCA will have more balls with him as chief.


LEE CHONG WEI BOLEH!

Gerekan should quit BN and join PR. If I was a Chinese, I don't think I can afford to stay in BN where UMNO calls the Chinese unprintable names and expects us to support them as if we zombies. Dignity has its price and there comes a time when we need to speak.

With chants of "Hidup Melayu" and Ketuanan Melayu" in PP by BN-Umno, Dr.Koh has unshamelessly continue supporting the BN candidate. This proves that he prefer to be a lap-doggie for the crumbs dished out by Umno and condone racisim.

Anonymous,
If Ah Koon is not dumb or deaf he should listen to the people in his party. BN is now reduced to a bunch of liars, and criminals who are looting the country. To remain in BN will bring only disgrace to Gerakan. Gerakan can never ressurect itself ever again, better to disolve the party and join DAP enblock. UMNO is just like a dictator in BN and all other components parties are expected to tow the line of umno, why continue to be cheap, salvage some pride and get out. MCA has no backbones just as the useless MIC, these two parties are just minor partners to umno, they have zero say and still stay on to be dragged around like a dog, told to sit they sit, told to stay they stay. Ka Ting is the past so is Samy, no longer relevant. So Gerakan, get out while you are not smelling as bad as the rest.

This good-for-nothing Gerakan bodek-king is the most unshameful guy who lifted the KRISS together with the Kerismuddin.
Even being called "babi,balik Cina", he won't leave!
Let Gerakan AGM kick him out! Get new leader & go join PR.
