KUALA LUMPUR: Locals who are concerned about their welfare and continued development in coastal Perak should vote for Datuk Mah Siew Keong, said MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.
“He is sincere and hardworking. I have known him since my days in Youth and he is responsible and very committed to the people,” he told a press conference yesterday after opening the Bandar Tun Razak MCA division office and service centre at Taman Orkid Desa in Cheras here.
On Mah’s opponent, Liow said DAP was fielding Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud as a means of settling its own internal conflict.
Liow said DAP members from various factions had been eyeing the parliamentary seat left vacant by Seah Leong Peng’s death and were fighting to become candidates in the by-election.
He said Barisan Nasional had adopted the concept of moderation, tolerance and mutual respect for all races in defending Malaysia’s multi-racial and multi-religious society.
“Unlike Barisan, Pakatan Rakyat is a coalition that ganged up for their own interests. There are many differences among the three parties and they work independently of each other without consensus.
“They claim to fight for the people but now, it is proven that their objective is to help PAS achieve its hudud agenda,” added Liow, who reiterated that MCA would fight to defend the rights of the people regardless of race and religion.
