Lengthy statement by Wee Ka Siong wont help to cover up the failure of MCA to prevent the tabling of RUU 355 and the disallowing of the opposition to participate in the debate

On the issue of the tabling of Hadi Awang’s Private Member’s Bill, MCA has again displayed its political trait of being ‘tiger head and snake tail’.
After MCA’s failure to prevent Hadi Awang from tabling the Private Member’s Bill, RUU 355 to amend the Syariah Courts ( Criminal Jurisdiction ) Act 1965, MCA Deputy President has made various attacks on the DAP in an obvious attempt to divert public attention .
However his attacks are irresponsible and mere baseless allegations .
He said that DAP MPs did not object when Hadi the motion proposer and Takiyuddin the seconder spoke in the House.
The truth is Pakatan Rakyat and DAP MPs were all preapred to state our clear and strong stand against the Bill during debate and voting stage. We did not expect the Speaker to disallow debate and had abruptly adjourned the sitting .
The debate did not start and we were prevented from stating our views and stand, so how could Wee accuse us of doing little to oppose the Bill?
Wee ‘s lengthy attacks on DAP cannot hide the fact that MCA has failed in preventing the tabling of the RUU 355 Bill, whether there was or was not a BN consensus on aĺlowing it.
In fact , there were clear signs that there was a BN consensus to allow the RUU 355 Bill from being tabled. The clearest sign was MCA did not object to its tabling. If there was no BN consensus on the tabling of the Bill, MCA MPs ought to have walked of the Parliament to register their strong protest,but all MCA MPs kept silent.
MCA has again displayed its political trait of being ‘tiger head and snake tail ‘, where it will always compromise the people’s intetest and rights just to stay in the BN coalition.
