A takedown order by ROS of the signboard of SUPP's Dudong Branch took the saga to a new height, ignitting a new round of explosive squabbles through press. The organising committee of the proposed Dudong Branch even took the matter to the court to seek an order as to whether SMC has power to act on the ROS's takedown order.
The prolonged dragging of the issue has fed the market with a gossip topic, giving Sibuians extra blah time at kopitiam.
The setting up of Dudong Branch is in any sense a non-issue so long as it is in full compliance with the party's procedures and the rule of law of our nation.
But the branch issue has been cooked up by certain interested parties to fit in to their personal agendas. With a calculated manoeuvre, Dudong branch issue was blown up, taking SUPP to the verge of split.
In economics, a market invisible hand works towards balancing the supply and demand. But in the case of Dudong, the strong invisible hand tilts the party to an imbalance.
SUPP really has to stay united to fend off the challenge!
