Vote yourself into government, Liow tells Chinese

 | January 9, 2017

MCA president tells Chinese to vote in the party as it is still relevant, understands their sentiments and will deliver when it is in government.


KUALA LUMPUR: The Chinese community should vote MCA into Putrajaya as the party can make use of the government machinery to resolve their problems, said its president Liow Tiong Lai.

The Star reported that Liow told the Chinese community the party was still relevant and understood their sentiments.

“When we (MCA) are in government, we will be able to deliver. Vote yourself into government, don’t vote yourself out.

“Use the government machinery to help you resolve your problems to deliver success for Malaysia,” said Liow at a press conference after attending a day-long engagement programme with English-speaking MCA members yesterday.

He added that MCA knew what the community wanted and the party would ensure there was continuous stability and development in Malaysia.

Liow stressed MCA had made concrete contributions to the community, and cited the building of the Tunku Abdul Rahman University College, Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman and Koperasi Jayadiri Malaysia Bhd as examples.

Liow said MCA, being an inclusive and forward-looking party, had a multiracial approach to politics to engage not just the Chinese, but also Malays, Indians and other races.

He also said the party had identified its weaknesses after the last election and strove for self-improvement and revitalisation.

On PAS’s Hadi Awang’s private member’s bill, Liow said a legal team from MCA and representatives from Chinese organisations and associations had drafted a memorandum on the issue that would be handed over to Prime Minister Najib Razak and the cabinet.

He stressed that MCA’s stance on the bill had not wavered, insisting that DAP’s Lim Kit Siang should admit that it was his party that had strengthened PAS by misleading the Chinese community into supporting the Islamist party.
