MALACCA: MCA’s priority now is to resolve issues faced by the Chinese community and will leave other matters such as ministerial posts for the party to Barisan Nasional.
Its president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said MCA was focused on managing the issues affecting the community and channelling them to the right avenues.
“We are confident of resolving outstanding issues through our camaraderie fostered among the Barisan component parties,” he said after attending a late night dialogue session with Chinese-based associations from the state at Wisma MCA in Jalan Hang Tuah on Wednesday.
“For the government posts, we will leave it to the prime minister, mentris besar and chief ministers to decide on when to absorb the party’s candidates.”
Liow said MCA was committed to reaching out and helping realise the aspirations of the community.
“I am prepared to work hard, go down to the grassroots and listen to the community’s wishes,” he said.
“My nationwide road show will continue and I promise to come back to a state if issues are not resolved according to plan.”
Liow said that in the 100 days after he assumed party presidency, he managed to unite MCA.
In the subsequent phase, in 1,000 days, he hoped the party would have reached out and bonded with the community.
“The party has set a KPI and we are going all out to regain the confidence of the community in MCA,” he added.
