Chua Soi Lek Resigns

PUTRAJAYA: Health Minister and MCA vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, who has admitted he was the subject of a sex video widely circulated in Johor, resigned from all government and party posts yesterday.

Dr Chua said he had written to the prime minister, deputy prime minister and MCA president to quit as health minister immediately.
He will also be stepping down as Labis MP, party vice-president, Johor MCA liaison committee chairman and Batu Pahat division chairman.
Dr Chua's announcement was a dramatic about-turn from his statement just a day before in which he confessed he was the person caught on video having sex with a "personal friend" but refused to relinquish his cabinet or party positions.
He said despite his admission and apology, he found that the public still could not accept what he did.

He said he had hoped that the people would forgive him but based on feedback, they couldn't. He said some Malaysians had a "holier-than-thou attitude".
Oh please lah. Just resign already.
