He said by insinuating that PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim would win the Mar 23 by-election, Zuraida had displayed the arrogance of PKR.
He called on voters in Kajang to teach PKR a lesson by rejecting Anwar on Mar 23.
"The PKR by declaring victory even before nomination day has shown complete disregard for democracy and respect for the voters," Liow said after meeting Kajang folks and MCA leaders and members here.
Chew's candidacy was announced by Barisan deputy chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Friday.
Chew, 50, is the former Petaling Jaya Utara MP, senator and deputy women, family and community development minister.
She is also a former Wanita MCA national chairman and Selangor Wanita MCA chief.
An online news portal on Feb 22 quoted Zuraida as saying that Barisan had fielded Chew so that she would be blamed if Barisan lost in the Mar 23 by-election.
MCA deputy president Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said Zuraida had no respect for women.
"Barisan's choice of candidate is none of her business," said Dr Wee who takes charge of the MCA campaign for the by-election.
Unfazed by Zuraida's criticism, Chew said she would work hard to get the voters' support and gain their confidence.
She acknowledged that winning the by-election would be tough although it would be "a meaningful battle."
