KUALA LUMPUR: Newly-elected MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai is confident that the new leadership is capable of guiding the party and undergo a major transformation.

He said that the top brass could work as one to undertake plans and steer the party into a new era.

"We shall put the sadness of the party's unsatisfactory performance in the last two general elections behind us and move on," he told reporters after he was named as the new MCA president during the 60th MCA annual general meeting at Wisma MCA here Saturday.

Liow said all elected leaders were great assets to MCA, and each would be able to contribute to the rebuilding of the party.

Newly-elected deputy president Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong thanked the central delegates for their support and for the mandate given to him.

"My sincere gratitude goes to the central delegates for their trust and mandate, as well as for choosing me as the deputy president," he said.

He also acknowledged his direct opponent Datuk Donald Lim and said he was a well-respected veteran with ample experience who had provided him with much guidance.

Dr Wee said the new party leadership line-up showed the wisdom of the central delegates who had a mind of their own and not easily influenced in choosing their leaders.

He also said Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, who was described as soft-spoken by some, had proved he was a leader of great dignity.
