KUALA LUMPUR, 17 Feb 2009: Bukit Lanjan state assemblyperson Elizabeth Wong has done the right thing by offering her resignation following her nude photographs controversy, MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said.
The former Health Minister said he could understand what Wong had gone through in the last 48 hours, adding that she must remain strong.
“I can only say that she has my sympathy and support. I feel that she has done the right thing by offering to resign as exco and state representative and I fully agree that everyone has the right to privacy.
“Elizabeth Wong must stay strong and be brave to face the storm. This is not the end of the world,” he said in a statement posted on his blog www.drchua9.blogspot.com, today.
“Finally, it’s your determination, honesty and hard work that will earn you understanding, support and recognition,” he added.
Chua himself had resigned from all his government and political positions after he admitted to being the man videotaped in a sexual act that was being circulated in Johor in late 2007.
He managed to make a political comeback during the party election in October last year after being elected as party deputy president. — Bernama
