MCA leaders meet today to discuss the position of Dr Chua Soi Lek who is a party vice-president. He is also Health Minister.
Dr Chua is the man in the Batu Pahat sex video. He admitted so. And the woman in
question is his personal friend.
He has apologised to everyone -- his wife and family, the Prime Minister, his colleagues in the party and Cabinet, his supporters and, of course, Malaysians.
His wife, Wong Sek Hin, in a statement, said that the family "has accepted his regret and apology".
I'm not sure if that means she has forgiven him.
Dr Chua, who is also Johor MCA chairman said yesterday that he had met with MCA president Ong Ka Ting and the PM who is Umno president and Barisan Nasional chairman.
Dr Chua said that he will not resign from his positions in the party and government.
The MCA convenes an emergency presidential meeting today to discuss this very important matter.
So, we'll see later what the outcome is.
Will the party ask for his resignation because his careless act has tarnished the party and the government he represents?
You know, being rumoured to be having an affair is quite different from being caught in the act for all and sundry to see, even if it was not you who recorded the sex act.
Or will the party forgive, and forget. Let bygones be bygones. After all, his wife and family has accepted his apology and regret.
More importantly, what action will the PM take? Remove Chua from the Cabinet, or retain him?
Is he taking the cue from the MCA?
Chua's sexual escapades aside, I'd like to say that if I were him, I'd want to know who was/were behind the video-taping of the sex romp in the Batu Pahat hotel?
I'd also take the hotel to task. I'd want to know if the hotel is part of the whole scheme or if its employees were involved.
I smell a rat. I know he does too.
Well...what a beginning to a new year!
This is the first time a Cabinet Minister in Malaysia has ever appeared or been caught in a sex video.
And oh, before I forget -- Happy 61st Birthday, Dr Chua!
