Chew Mei Fun is a woman to be admired and emulated!  She is one Malaysian who is showing true integrity by honouring her word and sticking to her principles! 

As the leader of MCA Wanita and the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Women and Family Development,  it was incumbent upon Chew to lead the nation’s women in fighting for their rights and upholding their dignity. It was her duty to make a stand against Chua Soi Lek’s leadership on the grounds that his act of adultery was an affront to the women who are the wife and mother in their family. Any act of abuse or betrayal by their husband and children will  diminish their efforts to nurture sound family values. A dysfunctional family with poor moral values will in turn produce citizens who are irresponsible and uncaring.

In the current mood of socio-cultural and political unrest sweeping across the  country, we need more people like Chew to show that the quest for power and popularity should not be the end-all and be-all of  our mission in life. Malaysians need to be reminded that there’s more to nation building than political bickering and the tit- for – tat mentality that is pervading national politics. Party hopping, in-fighting, slandering  and back-stabbing are fast  becoming acceptable strategies which the politically ambitious resort to in the name of loyalty, patriotism and nationalism. The moral irresponsibilty is fast spreading as the devil may care attitude spreads to the other aspects of their lives!

It is high time leaders like Chew come forth to stand up for their principles and be  the role models that Malaysians, especially the young, are desperately looking for. It is indeed timely that a woman is showing the way as the men squabble for power and wealth! Chew must continue the struggle in MCA and among the Chinese, and this will in turn reverberate across the rest of society!

    I salute her! At last we have someone who is ‘man'(?) enough to stand up and stick to what she believes in at the expense of her position and title. Do you think any of our male politicians are brave enough to do so (except perhaps for Zahid), the others would cling on to their post and trappings despite being found guilty if not being blatantly guilty of wrongdoings. Some recycled themselves or are being recycled while others are hoping to be recycled, their past sins aside. Thats why we Malaysians are in this present predicament of being between the devil and the deep blue sea.

    You are right NanaDJ! The quest for status, position and title which goes hand in hand with the mad rush for material acquisitions seems to define the goal and ambition of the average Malaysian – especially those living in KL.

    Politicians are competing to outsmart each other not through their ideals and ideology but by digging out the dirt in one another’s lives. “I’m dirty -so what? You are dirtier!” And there’s certainly a lot of dirt out there as unscrupulous people do outrageous things in order to quickly get what they want.

    Honour and integrity are dirty words these days! SIGH!

    Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun I salute you for your virtue, honour and integrity in standing firm to your conscience and commitment. Not many politicians who having be appointed as a Senator and Deputy Minister would dare to think about resigning at the expense of losing his/her (power) but your positive mental attitude by holding steadfast to your principles is what we the rakyat strongly support…..I believe another politician is Dato Zaid Ibrahim. Morally irresponsible politicians have no place to try to be leaders and stand on a political platform to face the rakyat on any issues. If Malaysian politicians are like you both then Malaysians will be living in a ‘new world’ where corruption, cronies, injustice, racial and religious differences will never ever cross our minds and will completely be wiped out on Malaysian soil but of utmost importance we will all be proud to be known as Malaysians first and our race second….thats what 1 Malaysia is truly all about, not a mere slogan or rhetoric idea!
