KUANTAN: MCA members who are not nominated as local councillors and village chiefs can still serve in an advisory capacity, said party president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.
He said there were conditions that had to be fulfilled for candidates to be selected, with the younger generation being given priority.
“The older generation has to make way for the new faces in order for renewal to happen.
“But they can still contribute by advising the new candidates.
“They do not have to be in the front line all the time to serve the people,” Liow said after visiting the SM Chong Hwa Kuantan’s temporary classroom in Gambang here yesterday.
“When asked about the state exco members’ posts for MCA assemblymen in Pahang,” Liow declined to comment and said that he would announce it at another time.
On Monday, Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob reiterated that there were no more seats available in the state executive council.
MCA previously had two seats in the council before the 13th general election.
On the Chinese independent school’s development, Liow said the first phase, costing RM20mil, would be completed by the end of the year.
“Students will be able to move in to the new premises then.
“The SM Chong Hwa committee requires an additional RM30mil for the development of the second phase,” he said.
Liow said to that end, the Gelang Patah MCA division had taken the initiative to organise a fund-raising dinner, featuring Singaporean artistes, on March 28.
The division chairman Jason Teoh Sew Hock said the proceeds from the fund-raiser would be divided between SM Chong Hwa Kuantan and the Southern University College.
“We aim to collect between RM800,000 to RM1mil,” said Teoh.
