A source suggested that Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad may have rejected Nga for his apparently racist comments in the past.
Sources from Nga’s camp told Malay Mail that party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng broke the news to Nga yesterday before chairing the party’s emergency central executive committee meeting.
“He (Lim) was close to tears that he could not persuade the old man to appoint Nga as a minister,” said a source, referring to Dr Mahathir.
The source said the DAP did not deserve to be treated as such as it contributed many seats to enable PH to form federal government after the 14th general election.
On the federal level, the DAP contributed 42 seats, making it the second-biggest PH party in Parliament after PKR with 50 seats.
The source also said Dr Mahathir rejected Nga’s name for minister and deputy minister. He suggested Nga was rejected for his purported “ultraness”.
“His racially charged statements do not sit well with the PM who must have been told of the matter,” he added.
During campaigning in the 2018 election, Nga told voters that the DAP will use 92-year-old Dr Mahathir, who is PPBM and PH chairman, to defeat then-Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak before, Nga alluded, Dr Mahathir dies.
The source also said Nga was not the only big name to be left out from the Cabinet list, suggesting that a Sarawak DAP politician only received a deputy minister’s position.
During the 14th general election, Lim had told Teluk Intan voters that Nga would be made a minister if the latter won the seat and PH formed federal government.
(1) It shows Mahathir is STILL a very vindictive old man. It's natural he would resents Nga's remark that the DAP would use him to defeat Najib before he (Maddy) dies.
But to carry his resentment into political practice in a coalition shows his unforgivingness, his 'small mind', his 'meanness', very hostile emotions as he has shown towards Anwar and Najib and those who had joked about him or denied him or his family of anything, eg. Tunku, AAB, KJ.
(2) It also shows that Mahathir despite his 12 Pribumi seat versus DAP's 42 seats is still the No 1 Boss, and Guan Eng could do f-all.
(3) It teaches Guan Eng a bloody lesson not to make bullshit arrogant promises which embarrassingly for him, now cannot be met.
(4) It may also be an omen that Mahathir is now 'pulling back' from his liberalness as he moves to assuage Malay fears that his "government" may be too much Chinese-dominated.
Mind, Nga Kor Ming is not the sort of Chinese whom elite Malay gentlemen, patricians and country squires (eg. Ku Li, Tunku Aziz, Mahathir, HRH Sultan Perak, etc) would be comfortable with.
Nga's mateys would be more in the category of Hew Kuan Yau, wakakaka.
Malay elite and patricians prefer 'Killing softly with his song' rather than robust 'Kungfu fighting', wakakaka.
... and as a bonus to your guys, a third song from kaytee, wakakaka:
