KUALA LUMPUR: MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai says he is still working on appointments to further consolidate and strengthen the party.
He said his priority and focus was to unite the party, which was at its lowest ebb after two huge electoral defeats which saw the party's elected representatives down to 46 and 18 respectively.
"I am confident that MCA can move forward when we all stay united and give top priority to the interests and future of the party.
"There is no need to look back," he told The Star Thursday.
Earlier in the day, former party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek expressed unhappiness that seven important appointed party positions did not go to those aligned to him.
The positions were secretary-general, three posts of central committee member and three state chairman posts.
Dr Chua said he and Liow had signed a peace plan last Nov 28, and they had agreed the seven positions go to people from his (Dr Chua's) team.
Liow who was elected party president last Dec 21, announced a long list of appointments, including Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan, who is not aligned to Dr Chua, as secretary-general.
