SEGAMAT: The ministerial posts to be allocated to MCA will be an important platform for the party to serve the rakyat better, said party president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.
He said the party would wait for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to make an announcement over the matter.
“It is the prerogative of the Prime Minister, who is also Barisan Nasional chairman, to decide on the portfolios and the number of posts for MCA.
“We (MCA) have a good track record in serving the people, especially helping to resolve problems faced by the Chinese community,” he said when asked on the upcoming Cabinet reshuffle after opening the RM4.8mil four-storey building for SJK(C) Bukit Siput yesterday.
Last Saturday, Najib said MCA must be in the Cabinet as the voice and conscience of the Chinese community to make Barisan stronger as it charts a better future for Malaysia.
He said the relationship among Barisan parties must be based on sincerity and trust, and MCA was an important partner in the “Barisan alliance” that had resulted in Malaysia being a success story.
