KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Youth saw the first batch of women in its central leadership.
They are vice-president Nicole Wong Siaw Ting and eight central committee members –Tee Tze Wei, Nian Yien, Mandy Kaw Shuen Hui, Heng Sinn Yee, Wai Bee Hoon, Teow Chia Ling, Yap Lay Keat and Jasmine Chan Kit Mun.
Being the first woman to hold a high post in the wing where three-quarters of its members are men, Wong said her main concern was what her next course of action should be.
“I would like to empower more women into the decision-making level,” she said.
As the new youth leadership comprised members from different teams, Wong said this clearly showed the delegates were not voting by faction.
Chan said she would work together with the rest of the movement’s committee members to revamp the wing and to carry out projects beneficial to the party, society and nation.
“I will stress on empowering youths in various fields such as education, and to provide them with a platform to gain more exposure,” she added.
