GE13: MCA to contest 37 parliament, 90 state seats, with 53 per cent new faces (Updated)

KUALA LUMPUR: MCA will contest in 37 parliament and 90 state seats in the general election.

Sixty-eight of the 127 candidates are new faces.

A 25-year-old aspirant is the youngest contestant from the party, the second major component of the Barisan Nasional (BN).

The five female candidates fielded are also new faces.

MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said 19 or 51.3 percent of the 37 candidates for parliament seats and 49 contenders for the 90 state seats are first-timers.

MCA contested in 40 parliamentary and 90 state seats in the 2008 general election.

Dr Chua said party aspirants who were not nominated as candidates this time around should accept the leadership's decision in good faith and hoped they would cooperate to help wrest more seats and ensure the victory of MCA and Barisan in this crucial general election.

"Since this general election is a tough fight between the Barisan and Opposition parties, new strategies have to be put in place to ensure that the Barisan wins more seats in this election.

"For instance, we've employed a new strategy by introducing changes and "loaning" several parliament and state seats to component parties to help the Barisan win more seats this time around," said Dr Chua, who is not contesting in this election.

Dr Chua also assured that the MCA would get back the seats it had "loaned" to other component parties following the redelineation of electoral boundaries after the general election.

Dr Chua said last week that MCA was "loaning" the Kuantan parliamentary seat to Umno and the Kota Laksamana state seat in Malacca to the People's Progressive Party (PPP). - Bernama
