I won't call it quits, says Ong

The word 'retire' doesn't figure in former MCA president Ong Tee Keat's extensive vocabulary that stretches to fluency in Mandarin, English and Bahasa Malaysia.“(Retiring has) never crossed my mind... Removal (from public office) is not synonymous with retiring,” he said in a recent interview.Ong, 54, who was unceremoniously defeated as MCA president in March and then replaced as transport minister, said there are many platforms via which he can still serve, with or without posts.

PKFZ: 'Gov't will pay the RM700mil to bondholders'

Aiyooo !!!! How Can Lah ??

This is highly a ridiculous unthinkable ,where PKFZ issue has been highlighted so many time of their legal dispute between PKFZ & Kuala Dimensi & action to freeze whatever the accounts involved KBSB & PKA taken place and now the government given the assurance to pay what is due to PKFZ bond holders. The government said they have a commitment to the bond holders therefore they have to fulfill it.

Let me boldly remind the government, equally you have the commitment & obligation to ensure that our tax payers money amounting RM 1.64b be returned to all our tax payers. Surely but truly this commitment to the rakyat or taxpayers is far more important than any other consideration & it should supercede other decisions. May I appeal to our YAB Prime Minister that PKA’s obligation is not towards bond holders, but Definitely to our poor rakyat & tax payers. This is a very serious issue and can create very adverse damage to BN’s government.

Our Dear YAB Prime Minister, I hope you be able to digest this important seriousness.

Phang also urged the public to also recognise the authorities aren't going to tolerate corrupt practices.

MCA must make a stand on PKFZ: Ong

The MCA has everything to loss if it chooses to ignore the RM12 billion PKFZ controversy, said former president Ong Tee Keat.Ong, whose crusade for the truth in the high-profile case cost him his positions as party president and transport minister, said this very issue was a strong contributor to MCA's whitewash by the opposition in the 12th general election two years ago.“MCA as a party, more so as a partner in the ruling (BN) coalition, was greatly disadvantaged in the past GE such as in Selangor and the Federal Territory... we all know PKFZ is one of the root causes,” he told Malaysiakini.
