Who is the MCA Sex Minister?

UPDATE @5pm: Game Over! for Chua Soi Lek. I am wondering though, why UMNO-owned NST and MCA-owned Star reported this story with such front-page fervour. In my opinion, these broadsheets are dreadfully partisan. But partisan to whom? Chua's enemies within these BN parties perhaps? Who stands to gain from Chua's now-imminent ouster?

Chua Soi Lek admits he was the man in video

MCA Vice President and Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek admitted during a press conference in Labis, Johor, this afternoon that he was the man captured on tape engaging sex with a young woman.
I am the one in the sex DVD, says Chua

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek admitted he is the politician in the sex DVD circulating in Johor. In a press conference here Tuesday, Dr Chua said the girl is his “personal friend”.

He apologised to the Malaysian public, supporters and his colleagues. He said he did not make the tape himself.

Dr Chua said he will not resign over the sex DVD. He will leave that up to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to decide.
Hmmm... just who is he? Let's look at the hints in the media:

1. He is a national level MCA leader from Johor
The MCA chief has declined to comment on a sex video scandal which surfaced in Johor two days ago that allegedly involves a national leader from the state. - Malaysiakini
2. He is a MCA Minister from Johor
A minister has been linked to a sex scandal following the emergence of a DVD showing a couple in a bedroom romp.

The man in the digital video disc is said to resemble a senior MCA politician from Johor. - NST
So... national level MCA leader AND minister from Johor. How many of those do we have?

There are 4 ministers from MCA in the current cabinet (MCA website):
1. Ministry of Housing and Local Government - Ong Ka Ting (MP Tg Piai, Johor)

2. Ministry of Human Resource - Fong Chan Onn (MP Alor Gajah, Melaka)

3. Ministry of Transport - Chan Kong Choy  (MP Selayang, Selangor)

4. Ministry of Health - Chua Soi Lek (MP Labis, Johor)
So, there's Ong Ka Ting and Chua Soi Lek, both ministers who are also MPs from Johor.

But let's have a look at their state affiliations by virtue of their concurrent positions as State Liaison Committee Chairmen (ie. State MCA Chiefs) according to MCA's website:
State Liaison Committee Chairmen

Chua Soi Lek

Fong Chan Onn

Negeri Sembilan
Ong Ka Ting

Chan Kong Choy
So... who do you reckon now, is the MCA minister from Johor who's being implicated by the media in the DVD sex scandal? I leave you to put 2 and 2 together yourself.

Meanwhile, Screenshots reckons the current MCA Minister of Health is in trouble, but doesn't elaborate why:
The portfolio of Minister of Health is traditionally reserved for MCA.

However, past records show whoever that occupies the seat will come to the end of the road in politics.

Lee Kim Sai and Chua Jui Meng are indisputable examples who are still alive. Whereas, Dr Ng Kam Poh (1969), and Chan Siang Sun (1989) were older testimonies of similar fate, cast in stone.

Only Chong Hon Nyan managed to break the chain in 1984, when he retired as a short-stint Transport Minister after serving as the Minister of Health.

Let's see if Chua Soi Lek can break the curse this time.
In any case, it's half past midnight.


Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous 2008.

I see nothing wrong with consenting adults having sex.
Its just a natural instinct for people to have sex if the libido is there.

He did not make the tape. It is the hotel and the person manning the cctv that should be penalised for invasion of privacy.

But first, the PRDM must first authenticate the tape and then force the person having the original tape to come out - as how they did on the Lingamgate issue.

Being a minister or any prominent person or even royalties doesn't mean they are forbid to have sex.
Ministers, prominent persons or even royalties also need to go toilet to shit.

By all means, its a private and family matter.

I absolutely agree.

But I also think that leaders need to hold themselves to a higher standard compared to the average joe public. They have to be better than the rest of us, or else how can we entrust the power of leadership (ie. opportunity to break that trust) to them?

So while we hold leaders to higher ethical standards when it comes to corruption, I see nothing wrong in holding them to higher moral standards as well.

If a man is unable to fulfil the trust of one wife and a few children, how can he fulfil the trust of 26 million Malaysians? What if the next time he lacks willpower is not regarding which girl to screw, but which billion dollars to steal?

Hi Sean,
Just read on another blog that Uncle Chua was able to do it for 100mins straight. If this is true, then it is safe to speculate that Auntie Chua may close an eye on this issue.

For a middle aged woman, 100mins is almost impossible without pain if you know what I mean.

We already expect that all politicians will squirrel away money on the side. So, there is no trust to begin with anyway. Only issue is that do they have a bit of good left in their hearts to let the public see a part of the money.

Uncle Chua should do well even though he is away from politics. He could sell Viagra or its substitutes..... Guarantee a lot of business.

No lah. 56 minutes and 44 minutes are the length of the 2 DVDs which are actually just different camera angles of the same scene/act.

And though I haven't actually watched the DVDs, but reports say that there's a considerable amount of bathing lah, walking around lah, talking hokkien lah, fellatio lah, putting their clothes back on lah... so no, I don't think it's 100 minutes of outright, uninterrupted humping action.

Many other govt leaders have done much much worse crime (including hurting children, siphoning the people's money, etc.) but yet they didn't even think about resigning... maybe politics is all about only the baddest of them being able to survive.

hi sean,

i cant agree more with u on this

"If a man is unable to fulfil the trust of ONE wife and a FEW children, how can he fulfil the trust of 26 million Malaysians? What if the next time he lacks willpower is not regarding which girl to screw, but which billion dollars to steal?"

some ppl are just too naive to underestimate the effect of commmitted WRONG doing as a person holding high position
