KUALA LUMPUR: MCA will have the first say with regard candidacy in the impending by-election for the Bukit Gelugor parliamentary seat which fell vacant following the death of its member of parliament, Karpal Singh.
Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor was quoted by an online portal as saying that he had spoken to MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai and that he (Liow) would decide who would run in the by-election.
“As far as Barisan Nasional is concerned we will honour the existing agreement we have with the MCA because the seat consists of voters who are 74 per cent Chinese,” Tengku Adnan told reporters here, Sunday.
