Dong Zong's ugly show must end now
...
IT is a relief to see Dong Zong successfully convening an anticipated extraordinary general meeting (EGM) last Sunday to oust its feuding leaders and elect a new central committee to put an end to its 20-month crisis, despite violent protests held outside its office to stop the EGM.
It is also heartening to note that the newly elected president, Vincent Lau Lee Ming from Sarawak, is someone who has stayed above the fray of the power struggle between two rival camps in Dong Zong (United Chinese School Committees Association).
...
But to the dismay of many, the new committee also comprises controversial characters such as Poh Chin Chuan, who is one of the key persons responsible for contributing to the current crisis in Dong Zong and splitting this Chinese education group.
Poh, the immediate past secretary-general (sec-gen) of Dong Zong, is retained as sec-gen in the new committee.
...
This is because the holding of this EGM appeared to have complied with the Constitution of Dong Zong, obtained the sanction of the court and guidance from the state Registrar of Society (RoS) of Selangor.
...
For someone who has a track record of defending Chinese education for 20 years, there is expectation for him to show his love for Dong Zong.
...
It would be contempt of court if those who had gate-crashed Dong Zong on Aug 23 were instigated by him.
...
But since 10 out of 13 state affiliates of Dong Zong lost confidence in his leadership and requisitioned for an EGM to remove him in accordance with the provisions in Dong Zong's Constitution, he should pass the reins to his successor.
In planning to challenge the legality of the EGM, Yap may want to give some consideration to the feelings of the Chinese community which now only wants to see an end to the Dong Zong's crisis.
...
It also matters to the Chinese community that the National RoS will not deregister Dong Zong. The National RoS has given an ultimatum to Dong Zong's two factions to come to a settlement by Sept 7.
...
Now that the EGM had voted in a new committee headed by Lau, the shattered Dong Zong should be allowed to pick up the pieces and move forward, they commented.
...
Dong Zong, which has been championing Chinese education for over 60 years, has played a key role in the development of Chinese schools. Many prominent politicians, professionals and businessmen have had their early start in Chinese primary schools.
Lau told Sin Chew Daily that the first task for him as president was to persuade the Sarawak state government to grant official recognition to the UEC certificate awarded by Dong Zong to students sitting for its UEC exams.
Giving official recognition would mean Chinese secondary school leavers with UEC certificates could work in the civil service. This has been the aspiration of the Chinese community for decades.
But Nanyang Siang Pau, in its editorial, advised Dong Zong to eventually retire all controversial figures so that the organisation could win back support from Yap's supporters and move forward as a united body.
Hopefully, Yap will inform the National RoS on Sept 7 that he accepts the new leadership line-up so that Dong Zong can close a dark chapter of its history.
Without a doubt, a deregistration of Dong Zong will cause an uproar in the Chinese community. Inevitably, fingers will point at Yap and Poh and their collaborators for forcing Dong Zong into this sad and embarrassing state of affairs.
...
Settling the dispute: To resolve the leadership crisis in Dong Zong, five state affiliates have gone about quietly to requisition for an EGM on Aug 23. They have also obtained a High Court injunction to bar anyone from stopping the EGM from being held.

On the allocation of RM250mil for ...

On the allocation of RM250mil for development expenditure to religious schools, Chinese-type schools, Tamil national schools, mission schools and Government-assisted schools nationwide, Dong Zong (United Chinese School Committees Association) deputy chairman Chow Siew Hon said the association was relieved that the allocation this time was higher than in previous years.
Nevertheless, he stressed that the allocation was still insufficient for the 1,292 Chinese-type primary schools in the country as the RM250mil would be shared with other types of Government-assisted schools.

Dong Zong (United Chinese School Committees Association) deputy president Chow Siew Hong told Oriental Daily News in an interview today that apart from being exempted from their entrance examinations and offered scholarships, Malaysians who graduate with flying colours can gain PR status or even citizenship within a short time in Singapore.
