PETALING JAYA: MCA vice-president Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun (pic) is expected to be named Barisan Nasional’s candidate for the Kajang state seat in an announcement scheduled to be made at around 2pm, Friday.
Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is all set to make the announcement at a press conference at Menara Dato Onn in PWTC, Kuala Lumpur.
It is learnt that Chew has been endorsed by MCA and other Barisan National component parties as the candidate for the seat.
After a three-year hiatus, Chew made a comeback when she won one of the four vice-president slots at the party’s Dec 21 polls last year.
Chew, 50, was formerly a Petaling Jaya Utara MP, Senator, Wanita MCA chief and Deputy Women, Family and Community Development minister.
