I have always wondered about KLCA. Is it really an Association? What is an Association supposed to do? Isn't it supposed to build the grassroots? Provide opportunities to play chess to their local community etc. And for that service, they get to vote at the AGM of MCF as part of the fraternity of Associations.
Actually what does KLCA do? I know they organise an International tournament once a year. But is it only to serve certain business interests? If that is the case is it ok for business to masquerade as an Association? Is there a reason why there is a difference between having NGO's and businesses? If you are a business then why not declare you are a business? Why this way?
Can we speculate that this is also to give them a vote at MCF's AGM. But that vote is for Associations and not for businesses. Maybe the first item for discussion at MCF's AGM is to determine who is allowed to vote. Personally I think only genuine Associations should have a say. So is KLCA an Association?
Note: Right now KLCA is even making national policies. Who are they really? What is really happening here?
