KUCHING: A former executive secretary of SUPP, Chung Kok Chiong, has described the proposal by Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh’s faction for the party’s 2011 triennial delegates conference (TDC) to be rendered invalid before starting reconciliation talks as a “positive sign”.

“No one can travel back through time, but that should be seen as a positive sign or a progress, compared to their “it is already too late” argument previously. Such dramatic change in their attitude is a reflection of the faction’s intention to solve the party’s internal squabble.

“Personally, no one other than ROS (Registrar of Societies) has the authority to decide whether the 2011 TDC should be deemed invalid. I also think that if there is a will, there is a way. Leaders from both factions will be able to get to a common view if they are genuine in negotiating an effective and feasible solution,” he said during SUPP Kota Sentosa branch’s International Women Day here on Sunday.

Chung was referring to the proposal announced by Wong’s faction on Wednesday after they earlier held a closed-door meeting with Chief Minister Tan Sri Datuk Amar Adenan Satem.
Adenan, who now helms the state Barisan Nasional, also met the faction led by SUPP president Tan Sri Peter Chin a day earlier.

Chung said as someone who stands on neutral ground, he is proposing to both factions to make a concession so that both can take part in the coming party election in a playing field that is fair and democratic.

By allowing the delegates to vote and decide who the party’s future leaders will be, he believed this will be the best solution to solve the party’s internal squabble once and for all.

“It is my wish to see our party recruit more youthful members who are dynamic, capable and willing to sacrifice for the party’s sake while at the same time, older members with vast experience are included in the new line-up. Such combination of muscle power and brain power will undeniably inject life into our party,” he said.

Chung also believed that Adenan had expressed his intention of seeing leaders of both factions sort out their differences.
