PETALING JAYA: MCA has invited Dr Mahathir Mohamad and former prime minister Najib Razak for its Chinese New Year Open House on Feb 5.

Its president Wee Ka Siong said invitations to the rival leaders were sent several days ago.

Wee said the party is also inviting MPs from both sides of the divide, including from DAP, its harshest critic.

“It is an open invitation. It is up to them to attend,” he told FMT today, adding that it was his hope that political leaders would ignore differences during the lunar new year.

The open house will be held at the party’s headquarters at Wisma MCA.

MCA leaders have traditionally held Chinese New Year open house events in the past, but this will be the first time it is hosting it as an opposition.
