RAUB: The public should not be emotional while casting their votes in the coming general election, MCA vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said.
Dr Ng said voters should think wisely before giving their votes to the Opposition parties.
“I urge the people to ponder and think of the future of the younger generation and the country before entering the polling station.
“Under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun
Razak, much have been done for the people and various initiatives and transformation programmes launched.
“The people should vote for political stability so that the country can continue to reap benefits in terms of development and economic growth,” she said during a Chinese New Year gathering with residents in Kampung Tras near here.
Also present were Raub MCA division chairman Datuk Seri Lam Kam Sang, Bilut assemblyman Datuk Hoh Khai Mun and Pahang MCA Wanita chief Senator Datuk Lim Nget Yoon.
Dr Ng, who is also the Tourism Minister and Raub MP, took a swipe at some quarters who labelled Barisan Nasional as having done nothing good.
She said in their opinion, every single thing that Barisan had done for the people was wrong and not beneficial.
“However, when it comes to Opposition parties particularly the DAP, even if the party was at fault, no one seems to come out to criticise it.
“The Government is not 100% right but neither was it wrong all the time,” she said.
Dr Ng said for the coming elections, the party would work hard to regain the Tras state seat from DAP.
Meanwhile, Lam admitted that MCA was facing a very big challenge during the coming polls.
“I hope the people would not listen to calls for a change in the Government.
“Do not gamble the future of the country as five years are a very long period to bank on a loose coalition with their own ideologies,” he said.
