Breaking the curse of health portfolio
A TWO-DECADE spell was broken at Wisma MCA at 6.40pm on Sunday.
Party members shuddered to contemplate the careers of those who were picked as health minister since former health minister Datuk Chan Siang Sun died of a heart attack playing badminton in 1989.
And on Sunday, a former health minister and a serving one had placed their career very much on the line by contesting posts a notch higher in the party hierarchy.
The heavy rain outside Wisma MCA and the pulsating heartbeats of many inside served as the perfect backdrop as Datuk Yik Phooi Hong, the speaker, began naming the winners.
Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, the former health minister and the current health minister respectively, won the top two posts to the relief of all. The curse had been broken.
In fact, it was the votes of the 2,318 delegates which ended the spell that had troubled MCA since Chan's death. Replacing Chan was Ng Cheng Kiat, whose career was cut short by factionalism.
Succeeding him was party strongman Datuk Lee Kim Sai (now Tan Sri). The health minister turned out to be Lee's last post. He and former president Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik had a chilly relationship.
The political path of the next health minister, Datuk Chua Jui Meng, was like a yo-yo.
To cut a long story short, Chua was defeated when he took on former president Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting in the 2005 party elections. Three years later, Jui Meng made another attempt, losing to Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat. Jui Meng has since joined Parti Keadilan Rakyat.
Dr Chua took over as health minister in 2005, only to tender his resignation in 2008 after he was implicated in a *** DVD scandal.
Liow was subsequently appointed health minister.
With all these sad endings of health ministers' careers, speculation was rife over Liow's fate.
But the results speak for themselves. Liow can be pretty reassured the "curse" is no more.
As for Dr Chua, his reversal of fortunes has catapulted him to the top.
Federation of Taoists Association of Malaysia president Tan Boon Seng said the fate of former health ministers was purely coincidental.
"There is no such thing as curse in religion.
"Liow may have done good to society through his contributions and this is probably why he was voted in. This is good karma," he said.
At least, whoever takes over the health minister's post from Liow can breathe a sigh of relief.
In any case, Dr Chua and Liow are far from superstitious.
After all, the former is a medical practitioner and the latter a nutritionist, and both were professionally trained and have always placed their trust in science.
